The I2C(pronounced I square Cee) is a simple communication standard intended to move small amounts of data a few inches between chips. Please See I2C Wikipedia page for additional information.

I2C addresses

Note that I2C addresses are 7 bit. The last bit, which is not part of the address, indicates whether this is a read or write operation. So "0001 000x" is 0x8, not 0x10.

Neo1973

On the Neo1973, we currently use the following addresses on the I2C bus:

Device I2C address
PCF50606 0001 000x
WM8753L 0011 010x
LM4857 1111 100x

If you pop the top facia, I2C is available from two testpoints near the debug connector. GND is not on a testpoint there but the mounting holes at the bottom and you can grab it from a capacitor under the battery on the right of the picture too.
