    What chip is used for level conversion?

    I’m using the sparkfun level converter shown above but am getting a significant amount of static when I connect my hifiduino/arduino up to my Buffalo III. Anyone else having this problem? Am thinking about trying an i2c isolator like the Adum1250 ( http://m.analog.com/mt/www.analog.com/en/interface-isolation/digital-isolators/adum1250/products/product.html) in place of the level converter. Would appreciate any thoughts folks might have.

      Adum is good idea, but not necessary if it works

    I watched a Arduino Tutorial by Jeremy Blum that said the I2C lines should have 10k pullup resistors, do you think this is necessary?

      Arduino has built in pull ups or the level converters also have pull ups

    Thanks, I didn’t know the level converters had Pull Ups. I read an interesting article on I2C Pull Up resistors you may or may not be interested in, http://dsscircuits.com/articles/effects-of-varying-i2c-pull-up-resistors.html

      That is an excellent site. You can add additional pull-ups without any negative effects

        Gravitech offers i2c-TRN v2 with build in pull-up resistors. Worked on the first try with B-II and UNO v3. I later switched t Adum1250 based interface between the two.

    Yes that’s what I am using works fine
