Debugging I²C with Hardware

The Inter-integrated Circuit (I²C) communication standard is widely used throughout the maker community. It allows multiple “slave” devices to communicate with one, or sometimes more, “master” devices. It’s a short range standard, intended to be used inside a single piece of hardware, to enable reliable communications between the micro-processor and other hardware like sensors. Unfortunately the I²C protocol can be somewhat tricky to debug since modern desktop computers just don’t speak it. Which is where the I²CDriver board might prove useful.
