The I2CNavKey is a small board that includes a 7 functions joypad. The joypad has 4 directional keys plus a central button and a rotary ring. It is controllable with the I2C bus, and it's possible to configure 16 different I2C addresses.
The I2CNavKey has also 3 configurable GPIOs with the same footprint of RGB LED. This 3 GPIOs can be configured independently in 4 different way: input, output, PWM and analog input.
Since the I2CNavKey is a I2C slave, it has a series of 8 bit registers where it's possible to configure different parameters,it's also possible to detect when the buttons are pressed or when the ring is rotated. It also has an open-drain output pin used as interrupt output. This pin is used to notify to the master when some event happens in the I2CNavKey, the source of interrupt can be customized.
