Qwiic Mux PCA9846

Description Attachments

The Sparkfun PCA9846 Qwiic Mux is the ultimate solution for connecting multiple I2C devices with the same address. It boasts eight configurable addresses, enabling up to 32 I2C buses on a single connection. All communication is enacted strictly via I2C, using the convenient Qwiic system.

The PCA9846 Qwiic Mux is a compact device, housed on a 2.54cm x 2.54cm PCB. It features four multiplexed Qwiic ports, as well as main In and Out connections. A standout feature is the "Who Am I" product identification register, which simplifies detection in auto-detect DataLogger / OpenLog applications.

Sparkfun has developed a dedicated Arduino Library for the PCA9846, ensuring you can start using it as quickly as possible. The Sparkfun Qwiic Connect System is a versatile ecosystem of I2C sensors, actuators, shields, and cables designed to make prototyping faster and less error-prone. All Qwiic-enabled boards use a common 1mm pitch, 4-pin JST connector, saving PCB space and ensuring foolproof connections.

The PCA9846 Qwiic Mux features a 2.54cm x 2.54cm PCB with standoff mounting holes, main In and Out Qwiic connections, four multiplexed Qwiic ports, and a configurable I2C address (0x70 - 0x77 unshifted, default 0x70). It supports both 100kHz and 400kHz clock speeds and includes 2.54mm-spaced breakout holes for Power, I2C, and Reset. It also has a power LED and a full set of 2.2K pull-up resistors, both of which are configurable. The supply voltage ranges from 1.65V (Min) to 3.3V (Max), with Qwiic operating at 3.3V only.

Supporting documents for the PCA9846 Qwiic Mux include a schematic, dimensions, Arduino Library, code examples, hardware repo, address configuration, and the PCA9846 datasheet.
