ELECTRONICS - [IC board]

Introduction to the I2C expansion board

The project described here is a little I2C controlled I/O board for testing purposes. It was designed for use with a 8051 microcontroller evaluation board, but it can be modified to be used with other applications/systems. The board was designed as a final project for the classes "labo microcomputers and PC upgrading" during my graduate school. The school bought my PCB so I can't show a picture of the result.

This was a assignment for a 8051 evaluation board we used. All software examples are written in Assembler code.

The schematics and print layout are designed with Edwin NC, a software package to design electronic circuits. I used to design all my circuits with it.
