CircuitPython driver for the TCA9548A I2C Multiplexer.


This driver depends on:

Please ensure all dependencies are available on the CircuitPython filesystem. This is easily achieved by downloading the Adafruit library and driver bundle.

Usage Example

# This example shows using two TSL2491 light sensors attached to TCA9548A channels 0 and 1.
# Use with other I2C sensors would be similar.
import time
import board
import busio
import adafruit_tsl2591
import adafruit_tca9548a

# Create I2C bus as normal
i2c = busio.I2C(board.SCL, board.SDA)

# Create the TCA9548A object and give it the I2C bus
tca = adafruit_tca9548a.TCA9548A(i2c)

# For each sensor, create it using the TCA9548A channel instead of the I2C object
tsl1 = adafruit_tsl2591.TSL2591(tca[0])
tsl2 = adafruit_tsl2591.TSL2591(tca[1])

# Loop and profit!
while True:
    print(tsl1.lux, tsl2.lux)

Building locally

Zip release files

To build this library locally you’ll need to install the circuitpython-build-tools package.

python3 -m venv .env
source .env/bin/activate
pip install circuitpython-build-tools

Once installed, make sure you are in the virtual environment:

source .env/bin/activate

Then run the build:

circuitpython-build-bundles --filename_prefix adafruit-circuitpython-tca9548a --library_location .

Sphinx documentation

Sphinx is used to build the documentation based on rST files and comments in the code. First, install dependencies (feel free to reuse the virtual environment from above):

python3 -m venv .env
source .env/bin/activate
pip install Sphinx sphinx-rtd-theme

Now, once you have the virtual environment activated:

cd docs
sphinx-build -E -W -b html . _build/html

This will output the documentation to docs/_build/html. Open the index.html in your browser to view them. It will also (due to -W) error out on any warning like Travis will. This is a good way to locally verify it will pass.
