PCA9551 8-bit I2C-bus LED Driver With Programmable Blink Rates

The PCA9551 LED blinker blinks LEDs in I2C-bus and SMBus applications where it is necessary to limit bus traffic or free up the I2C-bus master's (MCU, MPU, DSP chip set, etc.) Timer The uniqueness of this device is the internal Oscillator with two programmable blink rates. To blink LEDs using normal I/O expanders like the PCF8574 or PCA9554 the bus master must send repeated commands to turn the LED on and off. This greatly increases the amount of traffic on the I2C-bus and uses up one of the master's Timers The PCA9551 LED blinker instead requires only the initial set-up command to program BLINK RATE 1 and BLINK RATE 2 (i.e., the frequency and duty cycle) for each individual output. From then on, only one command from the bus master is required to turn each individual open-drain output on, off, or to cycle at BLINK RATE 1 or BLINK RATE 2. Maximum output sink current is 25 mA per bit and 100 mA per package. Any bits not used for controlling the LEDs CAN be used for General Purpose parallel Input/Output (GPIO) expansion. The active LOW hardware reset pin (RESET) and Power-On Reset (POR) initializes the Registers to their default state, all zeroes, causing the bits to be set HIGH (LED off). Three hardware address pins on the PCA9551 allow eight devices to operate on the same bus.
