This xCHIP is an interface module, based on the PCA9548A by NXP Semiconductors, which enables users to add more than one xChip with the same physical I2C address to a circuit. The PCA9548A operates as an I2C channel selector, this functionality is what enables communication with multiple I2C devices that have the same address. The channel selector ability is achieved through an octal bidirectional translating switch controlled by the I2C-bus.
