Info Content
Keywords Fm+ I2C-bus, PCA9955, RGB and white LEDs, 16-channel × 8-bit PWMs
Abstract The OM13330 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 PCA9955, a 16-channel Fast-mode Plus
(Fm+) 57 mA constant current and outputs allow up to 40 V for LED
supply. These boards, along with the Win-I2CUSB Lite GUI (PC based),
provide an easy to use evaluation platform.

PCA9955 demonstration board OM13330
1. Introduction
The PCA9955 evaluation board features LEDs for color mixing, blinking and dimming
demonstrations. A graphical interface allows the easy exploration of the different functions
of the driver. The board can be connected in series with other I2C-bus 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 PCA9955 16-channel Fm+ I2C-bus constant
current LED driver
Easy to use GUI-based software demonstrates the capabilities of the PCA9955
On-board RGB and White 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.nxp.com/redirect/demoboard.com)
3.4 Power requirements
The NXP demonstration board I2C 2005-1 and OM13330 hardware obtain power from the
PC USB port. Take care to not 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 OM13330 is a daughter card to the OM6275 I2C demo board 2005-1. You can
download the WIN-I2CUSB Lite Software, the OM6275 user manual UM10206, and find
ordering information at the NXP web site ics.nxp.com/support/boards/i2c20051/.
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 and 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 OM13330 connection to I2C demo board 2005-1
The I2C demo board 2005-1 should be disconnected from your PC before mounting the
OM13330 board on to it. The OM13330 board has a 9-pin female connector (J4) that
connects to the JP1 male connector on the I2C demo board 2005-1 as shown in Figure 1.
With both boards facing you, with USB connector on the right-hand side as shown in the
Figure 1, connect the OM13330 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 PCA9955.

4.3 OM13330 connection to Win-I2CUSB hardware adapter board
The Win-I2CUSB board should be disconnected from your PC before connecting the
OM13330 board on to it. The OM13330 board has a 14-pin male connector (J2) that
connects to the 14-pin male connector (J1) on the Win-I2CUSB board as shown in
Figure 2.
Connect the OM13330 board to the Win-I2CUSB board 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 PCA9955.

8. PCA9955 evaluation steps
The PCA9955 functions are controlled by WIN-I2CUSB Lite GUI. Refer to the PCA9955
data sheet for additional information on the registers and functionality.
Connect the hardware as described in Section 4. The PCA9955 demo board address is
set to 0xC0 on SW1 as A[0:3] = SW1[1:4] = 0000 (0 ON, 1 OFF). When you have
correctly installed the software and the demonstration board hardware is connected and
recognized by the computer, start the Win-I2CUSB Lite software. As shown in Figure 5,
when the demonstration board hardware is correctly connected to the USB port and the
computer recognizes it, the message ‘Hardware Detected’ is displayed on the bottom of
the window.
Switched 3.3 V and 5.0 V power supplies are controlled through the ‘Options’ menu or by
double-clicking the 3.3 V or 5.0 V symbols on the bottom of the window. Power supplies
are disabled by default, and must be enabled before using the I2C-bus devices on the
board. I2C-bus frequency is controlled through the ‘Options’ menu or by double-clicking on
the frequency symbol on the bottom of the window.
8.1 Color mixing and dimming LEDs
1. From the ‘Device’ drop-down menus, select ‘LED Blinkers and Dimmers’, and from
the subsequent drop-down menu select ‘PCA9955 16-channel Constant Current LED
Driver’ as shown in Figure 5.
2. Check the ‘Auto Write On’ box (lower left), uncheck the ‘Low power mode (oscillator
off)’ box to enable the device to ‘Normal mode’ (upper left).
3. The device configuration screen is displayed by clicking the following options:
‘PWM 0 to 7’ individual brightness control for LED0 to LED7 as shown in Figure 6.
‘PWM 8 to 15’ individual brightness control for LED8 to LED15 as shown in
Figure 7.
‘LEDOUT’ LED driver output state for LED0 to LED15 as shown in Figure 8.
‘Output Gain’ LED output current setting for LED0 to LED15 as shown in Figure 9.

‘Other’ GRPPWM is group PWM for global brightness control, GRPFREQ is group
frequency for global blinking control when group control = blinking in Mode 2
register, PWMALL is brightness control for all LED outputs, OFFSET is control LED
output delay offset, IREFALL is control output current for all LEDs as shown in
Figure 10.
4. Click the ‘LEDOUT’ configuration screen and select ‘PWMn & GRPPWM’ for LED[1:3]
(see Figure 8).
5. Click the ‘Output Gain’ configuration screen and adjust the IREF[1:3] = 0x30 for
LED[1:3] output current at 3.8 mA = 48 ×80 μA (see Figure 9).
6. Click the ‘PWM 0 to 7’ configuration screen and move the PWM1 (red) PWM2 (green)
PMW3 (blue) bars for color mixing (see Figure 6).
7. Once you set a color on D3 RGB LED with the PWM[1:3] values, click the ‘Other
configuration screen and move the GRPPWM bar for dimming effect (see Figure 10).

To set up a blinking demo, repeat step 1 through step 7 as in Section 8.1, then do the
following:
1. In the Mode 2 (= 0x25) selection window (middle left), check the
‘Group control = dimming’ box to change the mode to ‘Group control = blinking’.
2. To set a blink cycle, click the ‘Otherconfiguration screen and move the GRPFREQ
bar to select blinking frequency as well as the GRPPWM bar to select the duty cycle
(see Figure 11).
3. For example, set the GRPPWM to 0x52 (32 % duty cycle) and the GRPFREQ to 0x0B
(0.5 second) for a one-third duty cycle and blink every half second on D3 RGB LED.
4. Change the PWM[1:3] values, GRPPWM and GRPFREQ values to create different
blink patterns and colors.
