Have you ever had problems trying to daisy chain Qwiic-enabled boards with only ONE Qwiic connector? Or maybe you need a Qwiic-enabled device that is not in the middle of a daisy chain? The SparkFun Qwiic MultiStar adds four additional ports to boards that have only one Qwiic port on the I2C bus. Even though there are five points to the star, one is required to connect to your main board. Due to popular demand (and a few too many ordered), we have reworked the MultiStar into a working (and much safer) celestial version of the MultiPort with five Qwiic connectors. Once added, you can use it as a hub to add as many I2C devices to the bus as you need!
To make this fully-functional board even more attractive, we've turned them into festive ornaments that you can hang on the tree or around the house.
If you are looking for a non-ornament version of this board, we still offer it in our Constellation MicroMod Kit as well! Make sure to hurry, though. The Qwiic MultiStar Constellation Ornament is a limited edition and promotion - once they're gone, they're most likely gone for good!
Note: The SparkFun Qwiic MultiStar Constellation Ornament is not available for resale.
The SparkFun Qwiic Connect System is an ecosystem of I2C sensors, actuators, shields and cables that make prototyping faster and less prone to error. All Qwiic-enabled boards use a common 1mm pitch, 4-pin JST connector. This reduces the amount of required PCB space, and polarized connections mean you can’t hook it up wrong.
If it requires power, you need to know how much, what all the pins do, and how to hook it up. You may need to reference datasheets, schematics, and know the ins and outs of electronics.
Skill Level: Rookie - You may be required to know a bit more about the component, such as orientation, or how to hook it up, in addition to power requirements. You will need to understand polarized components.

"The SparkFun Qwiic MultiStar adds five additional ports..." Wouldn't that be four additional ports as one will be needed to connect the star to the board?
Nail on the head. Fixed!
