USB-I2C Bridge

Easyspeak I-square-C using 1-Wire

USB-I2C Bridge
Modern computers no longer come with parallel or serial ports fitted. Although these ports see declining use in practice, to designers, a portless PC is a nuisance. To solve at least a part of the problem, we present an interface for the I2C bus for connection to an USB connection on your PC. It works a treat when used in the LabVIEW environment.
