How many devices can you connect to I2C?

128 devices
I2C Device Addressing This means that you can have up to 128 devices on the I2C bus, since a 7bit number can be from 0 to 127. When sending out the 7 bit address, we still always send 8 bits.

What kind of I2C devices can Arduino connect?

In our case we will use 4 OLED Displays as an example, but you can use any other I2C modules/sensors if you wish. Note: 4 OLED Displays consume a bit more memory thats why we are using Arduino Mega to handle this as Arduino UNO memory is lower.

Can a microcontroller connect to two I2C buses?

There is only one real answer – remove one of the devices from the I2C bus and place it on another I2C bus. Then have your bus master connect to both buses. Which is great, except most microcontrollers like the Arduino only have a single I2C bus.

What do you need for an I2C multiplexer?

The device we require is a Multiplexer, which is essentially an electronic switching device. To be more specific, an I2C Multiplexer that connects to several external I2C busses. When we wish to communicate with a slave device wwe switch to the bus that contains the slave and address it.

How are multiple devices used in the I2C protocol?

I2C protocol can use multiple devices that all share the same communication lines: a clock signal (SCL) and a bidirectional data line used for sending information back and forth between the master and slave (SDA). In order to work, the 2 lines of the I2C, the clock and data lines, need pull-up resistors to the positive voltage source.
