  • I honestly don’t know what hell is wrong with you guys, the datasheet seems relatively clear to me. The registers aren’t really explained anywhere, but there’s a pin out and a timing diagram. I am going to give this a shot.

  • It’s so easy, even dogs can use it!

  • I don’t understand why Sparkfun hooked up the i2c lines to 1.8V as the datasheet clearly states it can be VDD + 0.1V, so it could easily be run at 3.3V

  • Hey guys, I wrote an article for www.bildr.org that explains the shift register with some wicked analogies! It comes with Arduino and AVR example code, too!

  • You could cut the trace and solder the contact by yourself. But that is very very hard. Basically you won’t be able to do it.

No public wish lists :(
