    Hi
    How many i2c stepper motor controller can be connected to UDOO X86 Advance?
    I have a project which is required 34 stepper motor controller to be connected by using i2c protocol

    Thanks

    The number of devices over the I2C bus is unlimited if all the devices have a different I2C address. If you want to use the Braswelo side you have take into account the 1.8V I/O level so if your I2C stepper controller is working on 3.3 or 5 V you need a leveler. For I2C that is a tricky business as these levelers not always support I2C communication.

    You could alternatively use the Arduino 101 part. There is no voltage issue but I2C communication on the Arduino 101 has some issues (not related to Udoo).

    Thank you for your reply I am working with Pololu Tic T825 stepper motor controller support I2C and stepper motor working on 12V in my project and bi-directional logic leveler so I am wondering is this setup can be work with UDOO X86 Advance can you advise me?
