Quick answer is "Yes" - so long as each device has been setup to use a unique I2C address**.darryletter wrote:I am new to the raspberry pi and i have a "B +".
So my question is it possible to hook up more then one device at a time. Can the I2C bus communicate to more then one device. what i was hoping to do was to breakout the I2C lines and hook more then one device and the same time
Come on Rich think in BINARY. How many things can you count with THREE bits?sav25 wrote:I think there's a maximum though, I think something like 8 or 9 using this method, ...
I make it zero to seven, because I'm a systems programmer.sav25 wrote:Yep - 8 it is then. I was just testing you
thank you will start the search shorty and see what i can find out.Richard-TX wrote:I think that a few google searches might help.

"Unix Context switch"
I2C is pretty slow, the Pi should have no problems handling lots of devices at the 'same' time.darryletter wrote:ok there is a way to do this thanks everyone but just a few more questions and then on to another post. How well does this work does the comm speed slow down? is there any failure issues? can the rpi b+ do input and output from 2 or more devices at the same time with the other I2C devices or is it one device at a time?
