The PCF8591 AD DA Board features an 8-bit A/D Converter & D/A Converter PCF8591 with four analog inputs, one analog output, and a serial I2C-bus interface.
The PCF8591 AD DA Board features I2C pinheader on one side and an I2C connector on the opposite side. Hence, it's more flexible to connect the board to your development system. The board also supports I2C cascading, allowing the use of multi modules connected to the I2C bus at the same time by connecting the pinheader and connector.

|SCL||PB8||I2C clock pin|
The examples are developed based on the HAL libraries. Download the Demo codes archive to your PC. Unzip and find the STM32 project from PCF8591-Code\STM32\STM32F103RB\MDK-ARM.
- Open the PCF8591 AD DA Board.uvprojx file by Keil
- Build and the project
- Program the project to your STM32 board.
- Connect the UART1 of your STM32 board to the PC and check the serial data by SSCOM software.
The Arduino example is written for the Arduino UNO. If you want to connect it to other Arduino boards, you may need to change the connection.
