Product Description

The PCA9531 is an 8-bit I²C bus optimized for dimming LEDs in 256 discrete steps for Red/Green/Blue (RGB) color mixing and back light applications.

Three hardware address pins on the PCA9531 allow eight devices to operate on the same bus. The PCA9531 contains an internal oscillator with two user programmable blink rates and duty cycles coupled to the output PWM. The initial setup sequence programs the two blink rates/duty cycles for each individual PWM. To blink LEDs at periods greater than 1.69 second the bus master (MCU, MPU, DSP, chip set, etc.) must send repeated commands to turn the LED on and off as is currently done when using normal I/O expanders like the NXP Semiconductors PCF8574 or PCA9554. The active LOW hardware reset pin (RESET) and Power-On Reset (POR) initializes the registers to their default state causing the bits to be set HIGH (LED off).

All I²C Mini Modules are designed to operate at 5VDC. Using a convenient 4-Pin plug, devices can be daisy-chained onto the I²C Bus, eliminating the need for soldering. Simply plug together the devices you need for your next automation application.
