As a simple two-wire bus, I2C lends itself to virtually any application, with a broad portfolio of bus enablers and peripherals you'll easily find the device you need at NXP. It could be an LED controller for the enticing lights of gaming machines, a level translator to manage the voltages differences in mobile devices, or a temperature monitor for a blade server. The applications are as varied as NXP's portfolio.
We have created a number of dedicated sample kits to assist you in deciding which components will be most appropriate for your designs. The following application-focused sample kits are now available - for more information on what's in each sample kit simply click one of the above tabs or the links below.

Industrial electronics covers a wide range of sub-systems that benefit from I2C technology, including user interface, safety and monitoring, and increasingly complex displays and indicators. And new designs often require higher bus transfer speed for more data bandwidth, and higher drive current for longer buses.
NXP's Fast-mode Plus (Fm+) I2C-bus technology (PCA96xx family) solves these challenges. The simple two signal line I2C-bus greatly simplifies wire congestion in applications from vending machines and industrial control to white goods and kitchen appliances. In addition this higher speed and higher drive I2C-bus technology is supported by NXP's Cortex-M0 family of microcontrollers.

Battery power and limited space are the two key challenges in mobile electronics, especially with the increasing feature sets on new platforms. Core logic, including processors, operate from lower supply voltages, and consume less power. While this is great for battery life, these components still need to work with existing higher voltage peripherals.
I2C technology not only directly addresses these issues with voltage level translation and easy to add low-voltage I/O capacity, it can also be used for keypad control as well as driving and controlling LEDs.
