  • (8) I/O connectors with 16 digital I/O, 2 Power, 2 Ground
  • Interrupt connector
  • 24LC024 Personality EEPROM
  • 3.3V or 5V operation
  • 95mm x 95mm (3.7" x 3.7")
  • Sollid 6-32 mountiing holes
  • Compatible with Arduino, Raspberry Pi, BeagleBone Black
  • Software drivers for MCP23017 for Arduino, Raspberry Pi, BeagleBone Black

Risks and challenges

This card has some significant testing challenges We plan to use one card as a test bed for another card. We will connect the unit under test to the test bed card and exercise all of the I/O lines on the unit under test.

Another challenge will be if we get a lot of interest in this card since there's a significant amount of time required to assemble this card. All of our assembly is done in the US by hand We feel that we need to limit the first month so hopefully people who want the card can order it early. If there is a lot of demand then we will probably take the cards to an assembly house with a wave solder machine.
