If you find yourself in need of using a low cost co-processor to act as a communications hub, why not consider a GPIO expander?  With the features in our latest GPIO expanders, this device can almost mimic a low cost MCU while being more cost-effective and reducing the complexity of your system. Come learn about the features and benefits, and actually see the GPIO expander in action on a simple PCB you’ll experiment with in this class.
