What is Qwiic?
The Qwiic Connect System is an ecosystem of I2C sensors, actuators,
Here is how it works
It's a special Inter-integrated Circuit (I2C) protocol connector system that

The Qwiic Ecosystem
We love Qwiic in this office, so to help rapidly develop this ecosystem, we're putting Qwiic connectors
on all our development boards. From microcontrollers, sensors and power management, we’re trying to
make prototyping faster and smarter.
While some of us at Smart Prototyping have been using JST-SH connectors for many years to link our I2C breakout boards, Nathan Seidle at Sparkfun Electronics gave this practice the name Qwiic. We're proud to be joining Sparkfun in a fledgling Qwiic alliance, and hope to see other companies contribute to this ecosystem as well.
