Interfacing SX1509 pin expander



  • Hello.
    I am really impressed with Rexygen.

    I have a question about I2C support on Raspberry Pi. I have SX1509 pin expanders that I would like to interface with. Is this possible?

    Thanks
    Chris

    Hi Chris,

    thank you for reaching out.

    Yes, it is possible to interface with SX1509 via I2C using REXYGEN. However, it will require a bit of hand-coding.

    Have a look at function block called REXLANG and its function "OpenI2C" - https://www.rexygen.com/doc/PDF/ENGLISH/BRef_ENG.pdf#page=439

    There are also some examples on I2C communication available - "0502 Generic I2C Communication" folder in Examples library (which is part of REXYGEN Studio) - these might help you to see how to implement the I2C communication according to your needs.

    Let us know about your progress.

    Regards, Tomas
