UART to I2C Click is a compact add-on board allowing connections to UART controllers and I2C targets for protocol conversion. This board features the SC18IM704, a bridge between the standard UART host interface and a serial I2C bus from NXP Semiconductors. The SC18IM704 provides a high-speed UART interface with a baud rate of up to 460.8 kbit/s and 256-byte FIFO for the transfer/receive data process, alongside several user-configurable GPIO pins. The host MCU communicates with the SC18IM704 with ASCII messages protocol, allowing it to control all the specific I2C-bus sequences, protocol, arbitration, and timing.
This Click board™ is suitable for use in multiple industrial applications such as communication bridges, process and automation control, I2C bus support, and many more.

ABOUT CLICK BOARDS™
Click boards™ follow a modular prototyping add-on board standard invented by MIKROE, which revolutionizes the way users add new functionalities to development boards. Click boards™ enable design engineers to change peripherals easily, cutting months off development time. To enable hundreds of Click boards to be connected to the microcontroller or microprocessor, we have invented socket standard - mikroBUS™. This uniform connection interface allows you to connect any Click boards to a main board instantly. The company releases a new Click boards nearly every day at 10am, and many leading microcontroller companies including Microchip, NXP, Infineon, Dialog, STM, Analog Devices, Renesas and Toshiba now include the mikroBUS™ socket on their development boards.
MikroElektronika (MIKROE) is committed to changing the embedded electronics industry through the use of industry standard hardware and software solutions. In 2011, the company invented the mikroBUS™ development socket standard and the compact Click Boards that use the standard to dramatically cut development time. Now the company offers 1000+ Click Boards – ten times more than competitors - and the mikroBUS standard is included by leading microcontroller companies such as Microchip, Renesas and Toshiba on their development boards. SiBRAIN is MIKROE’s most recent standard, for MCU development add-on boards and sockets. MikroElektronika also makes the world’s widest range of compilers and additionally provides development environments, development boards, smart displays and programmers and debuggers.
