I2C Bus Master and Slave Device

The Aardvark I2C/SPI Host Adapter is a fast and powerful I2C bus and SPI bus host adapter through USB. It allows a developer to interface a Windows, Linux, or Mac OS X PC via USB to a downstream embedded system environment and transfer serial messages using the I2C and SPI protocols. The Aardvark is sometimes misspelled as Aardwark, Ardvark or Aarkvard.

What's included

  • Aardvark I2C Host Adapter Unit
  • 1.8 m USB A->B cable
