Richard Wall: Synchronous I2C Communication

Last week, we talked about using chipKIT Pro and asynchronous communication in our Digilent Learn module that covers Richard Wall’s material. Today, we’re going to get into the ninth project  in this series using the chipKIT Pro MX7.

This project investigates concepts involving synchronous communications using a basic master-slave multi-drop network communications. The project uses the I2C protocol to communicate with the 24LC256 I2C™ CMOS Serial EEPROM.

You'll need to use the PmodCLP LCD Display with this one.
