Abstract The OM13483 is an add-on to 9-pin connector of the NXP I2C demo board
2005-1 or Fm+ I2C-bus development board. This daughter board makes it
easy to test and design with the PCA9955A/B, a 16-channel Fast-mode
Plus (Fm+) 57 mA constant current and outputs allow up to 20 V for LED
supply. This demo board, along with the Win-I2CUSB Lite GUI
(PC based), provides an easy to use evaluation platform.

PCA9955A/B demonstration board OM13483
1. Introduction
The PCA9955A/B evaluation board features LEDs for color mixing, blinking and dimming
demonstrations. A graphical interface allows the user to explore the different functions of
the driver easily. The board can be connected in series with other I2C demo-boards to
create an evaluation system.
The IC communicates to the host via the industry standard I2C-bus/SMBus port. The
evaluation software runs under Microsoft Windows PC platform.
2. Features
A complete evaluation platform for the PCA9955A/B 16-channel Fm+ I2C-bus
constant current LED driver
Easy to use GUI-based software demonstrates the capabilities of the PCA9955A/B
On-board four white and four RGB LEDs for visual experience
Convenient test points for easy scope measurements and signal access
USB interface to the host PC
No external power supply required
3. Getting started
3.1 Assumptions
Familiarity with the I2C-bus is helpful, but not required.
3.2 Static handling requirements
3.3 Minimum system requirements
PC Pentium 60 processor (or equivalent), 8 MB RAM, 10 MB of hard drive space
One USB port (either 2.0 or 1.1 compatible)
Windows 98SE, ME, 2000, XP, or Vista
I2C demonstration board 2005-1 (OM6275) or Win-I2CUSB board (from
www.demoboard.com)
3.4 Power requirements
The NXP demonstration board I2C 2005-1 and OM13483 hardware obtain power from the
PC USB port. Care should be taken not to exceed the USB port current capabilities.
CAUTION
This device is sensitive to ElectroStatic Discharge (ESD). Therefore care should be taken
during transport and handling. You must use a ground strap or touch the PC case or other
grounded source before unpacking or handling the hardware.

4. Installation
4.1 I2C demo board 2005-1 and Win-I2CUSB Lite software
The OM13483 is a daughter card to the OM6275 I2C demo board 2005-1. You may
download the Win-I2CUSB Lite Software, the OM6275 user manual UM10206, and find
ordering information at the NXP web site www.nxp.com/demoboard/OM6275.html.
The OM13483 is a daughter card to the OM13260 Fm+ I2C-bus development board,
which is part of the Fm+ development board kit (OM13320). You may download the
software, user manual, and find ordering information at the NXP web site:
www.nxp.com/demoboard/OM13320.html#documentation.
The Win-I2CUSB Lite software from The Boardshop runs on Windows 98SE, ME, 2000,
and XP and is compatible with any PC hardware having a minimum of a Pentium
processor and a USB port. The software allows the user to select one of the I2C-bus
devices on the board from a menu. It also provides a Universal mode (I2C Expert mode) to
allow users to create their own I2C-bus commands with the same I2C-bus devices.
4.2 OM13483 connection to I2C demo board 2005-1
The I2C demo board 2005-1 should be disconnected from your PC before mounting the
OM13483 board on to it. The OM13483 board has a 9-pin female connector (CON2) that
connects to the JP1 male connector on the I2C demo board 2005-1 as shown in Figure 1.
With both boards facing you, and with USB connector on the right-hand side as shown in
Figure 1, connect the OM13483 board to the I2C demo board 2005-1 before connecting
the USB cable. Once the board is connected, connect the USB cable and start the
Win-I2CUSB Lite software. You are now ready to evaluate the PCA9955A/B.

PCA9955A/B demonstration board OM13483
8.2 Test of LED open or short error detection
The PCA9955A/B can detect an LED open or short condition at its open-drain LED
outputs. Users recognize these faults by reading the status of a pair of error bits (ERRx) in
error flag registers (EFLAGn) for each channel.
The user can poll the ERROR status bit (bit 6 in MODE2 register) to check if there is a
fault condition in any of the 16 channels. The EFLAGn registers can then be read to
determine which channels are at fault and the type of fault in those channels.
1. Copy the ‘PCA9955A/B Open or Short test’ text file as shown below. From the ‘File’
drop-down menus select ‘Open’, and from the ‘open data file’ window select the
‘PCA9955A/B Open or Short test’ text file.
