<p>The MCP23017 is not a shift register, but an I2C port expander chip. It does work great to increase number of I/O ports, but it can also be used to reduce the number of wires running from one PCB to another. I love this chip.</p><p>See my application at <a href="https://www.instructables.com/id/8-Channel-Programmable-Timer/" rel="nofollow">https://www.instructables.com/id/8-Channel-Programm...</a></p>
