PCF8575PW Datasheet

Interface - I/O Expanders


This 16-bit I/O expander for the two-line bidirectional bus (I2C) is designed for 2.5-V to 5.5-V VCC operation.The PCF8575PW provides general-purpose remote I/O expansion for most microcontroller families via the I2C interface serial clock (SCL) and serial data (SDA). The device features a 16-bit quasi-bidirectional input/output (I/O) port (P07–P00, P17–P10), including latched outputs with high-current drive capability for directly driving LEDs. Each quasi-bidirectional I/O can be used as an input or output without the use of a data-direction control signal. At power on, the I/Os are high. In this mode, only a current source (IOH) to VCC is active. An additional strong pullup to VCC (IOHT) allows fast-rising edges into heavily loaded outputs. This device turns on when an output is written high and is switched off by the negative edge of SCL. The I/Os should be high before being used as inputs. After power on, as all the I/Os are set high, all of them can be used as inputs. Any change in setting of the I/Os as either input or outputs can be done with the write mode. If a high is applied externally to an I/O that has been written earlier to low, a large current (IOL) will flow to GND. The PCF8575 provides an open-drain interrupt (INT) output, which can be connected to the interrupt input of amicrocontroller. An interrupt is generated by any rising or falling edge of the port inputs in the input mode. After time, t iv, the signal INT is valid. Resetting and reactivating the interrupt circuit is achieved when data on the port is changed to the original setting, or data is read from or written to the port that generated the interrupt. Resetting occurs in the read mode at the acknowledge (ACK) bit after the rising edge of the SCL signal or in the write mode at the ACK bit after the falling edge of the SCL signal. Interrupts that occur during the ACK clock pulse can be lost (or be very short), due to the resetting of the interrupt during this pulse. Each change of the I/Os after resetting is detected and is transmitted as INT. Reading from or writing to another device does not affect the interrupt circuit.
