USB I2C/IO – instant solution for I2C control from PCs.
Pittsford, New York. USB-I2C/IO interface board - newly available from Saelig Co. - provides a simple "drop-in" 12Mbps USB interface to a host PC for quickly connecting external hardware. USB-I2C/IO provides 20 bits of user-configurable digital I/O, a 90Kbps I2C interface, and an 8-bit wide data bus for fast FIFO transfers.
The full-speed USB interface provides your application hardware with a "Hot Plug and Play", 12Mbps, industry standard connection to a PC host, using Cypress’ AN2131QC USB micro-controller. A power configuration jumper allows USB-I2C/IO to be powered by USB or by external circuitry. The included device driver, DLL, and example application software make it easier than ever to access your application hardware from a PC.
The software provides support for connecting multiple boards. This makes the USB I2C/IO a great solution when multiple equipment instances are required (test fixtures, production equipment, instruments, etc.). Each board can be uniquely identified by the application software via a serial number.
The board can be configured to download its firmware upon connection to the PC, or to boot from the I2C bus. An onboard I2C EEPROM is included on the board, providing 16KB of storage for code or data.
