Maybe sometimes we want to share the workload of one Arduino with another. Or maybe we want more digital or analog pins. Inter-Integrated Circuit or I2C (pronounced I squared C) is the best solution.
I2C is an interesting protocol. It's usually used to communicate between components on motherboards in cameras and in any embedded electronic system.
Here, we will make an I2C bus using two Arduinos. We will program one master Arduino to command the other slave Arduino to blink its built-in LED once or twice depending on the received value.
In order to build this we need the following "ingredients":
- 2 Arduinos
- Jumper cables
