TCA9548A I2C Multiplexer: up to 64 I2C sensors for only 8 addresses
Not many connection possibilities for I2C sensors are available on the Arduino microcontroller because of its address limitations. With this multiplexer from Adafruit, you can get up to 8 same-address I2C devices hooked up.
And the TCA9548A I2C multiplexer offers 8 different selectable addresses (0x70-0x77), so the connection possibilities are multiplied by 8. The chip comes mounted on a compatible breadboard.
