xChip Boards

xChips are a rapid electronics development ecosystem to help reduce development time and simplify making custom products as well as aiding learning. Without soldering, wiring, breadboarding, or hardware knowledge you can assemble a circuit in minutes, and concentrate on coding.

xChips are compatible with the platform you want to use and bridges are available for the most popular pltatforms; Raspberry Pi, Minnowboard, Beaglebone, Micro:bit, Pixhawk and 96 boards. Rather than bridging to Ardunio, we offer compatible cores for Arduino Uno, the CC01, and for Arduino Zero, the CC03.

xChips utilise I2C, and due to this bus architecture, unlimited expansion of circuits is possible. Limitations of I2C addresses have been negated by development multiplexers.

Because of its simple connection method, it is easy to build quickly - for prototyping and small product runs

xChips connect to each other using an xBus connector, available from RS 174-4977.

Some xChips need an xPDI connector (RS 174-4974) to connect to programming interfaces, such as the IP02 or IP03.

IX02 – SPI to xBus breakout xChip (SC18IS602B)

This xChip is an interface breakout module. The SC18IS602B is designed to serve as an interface between a standard I²C-bus of a microcontroller and an SPI bus. The IX02 is an SPI to xBus breakout designed for breadboarding with SPI and I²C devices. This allows the microcontroller to communicate directly with SPI devices through its I²C-bus.

The SC18IS602B operates as an I²C-bus slave-transmitter or slave-receiver and an SPI master. It controls all the SPI bus-specific sequences, protocol, and timing. It has its own internal oscillator, and it supports four SPI chip select outputs that may be configured as GPIO when not used.
