Library Read Me

This content is provided by the library maintainer and has not been validated or approved. Adapted for Particle IDE by Evan Simkowitz. The best wiring diagram I've found is

Description from Adafruit: This is very much beta, it seems to work fine but its not optimized and doesn't currently suport the interrupt capability of the chip

Currently it can do: setting pin directions, inputs and outputs and turning on/off the pull-up resistors

To use: Connect pin #1 of the expander to Analog 5 (i2c clock) Connect pin #2 of the expander to Analog 4 (i2c data) Connect pins #3, 4 and 5 of the expander to ground (address selection) Connect pin #6 and 18 of the expander to 5V (power and reset disable) Connect pin #9 of the expander to ground (common ground) Pins 10 thru 17 are your input/output pins
