SparkFun Qwiic Switch

Microswitches are an easy way to determine if your robot has hit a wall or if your gantry has reached an endstop, but why would you want to deal with debouncing, polling, and wiring up pull-up resistors? The Qwiic Switch simplifies all of those nasty worries away into an easy to use I2C device! With SparkFuns' system using the switch is as simple as calling button.isPressed().

This board is BYOS, or Bring Your Own Switch. It's designed to solder onto existing microswitches, like the endstops on your CNC mill or our Arcade Joystick. It also has a pin that connects to an external LED, which can be configured for your desired level of blinkiness.

SPX-15586-013

If you need multiple switches for your project, fear not! Each switch has a configurable I2C address, so you can daisy-chain multiple switches over Qwiic and still address each one individually. In addition to handling blinking and debouncing the Qwiic Switch has configurable interrupts which can be configured to activate upon a button press or click. This means that code on your microcontroller need not waste valuable processing time checking the status of the switch but instead can run a small function whenever the switch is pressed or clicked!
