The TCA9546 is a quad bidirectional I2C multiplexer, providing a single I2C Input and 4 selectable I2C outputs, controlled by the I2C bus. On Power-up, all 4 I2C outputs are disconnected. A 5th I2C output acts as a pass-through from the primary I2C input. The SCL/SDA upstream pair fans out to four downstream pairs, or channels. This I2C Multiplexer is an ideal solution for speaking to our entire range of Mini Modules and I2C devices, effectively converting a single I2C port into 4 I2C ports. The TCA9546 works at I2C bus frequencies up to 400 kHz. The TCA9546 may be powered from the I2C bus or from the optional 12V 2.1mm barrel connector for external power. On-board screw terminals may also be used for an external direct wired 12V power supply.
