# PCA9456A i2c switch channel 1 not showing up

I am using an PCA9456A i2c switch to help me toggle between i2c devices with the same address, but i am having problems opening channel 1 (second channel out of 4) and i ran out of ideas what is causing it

Here are the code and schematics, I am using the busio and board library in python

import busio
import board

i2c = busio.I2C(board.SCL, board.SDA, frequency=100000)

i2c.writeto(0x70, bytes([0x0F]), stop=True) # 0x0F = b00001111 which turns all channels on


With this code i am able to toggle between the other 3 channels (be it only 1 channel is enabled or any combination of the 3)

I am planning of using it on a raspberry pi 4.

what i have tried checking:

• I have tried double checking all connections and if they are
connected to the correct pins EDIT: This turns out to be false
• I have tried changing the pull up resistors' value (decreasing and increasing it)
• I have tried creating another circuit using another PCA chip and a different i2c device than what i am supposed to be using. It is always channel one that i cannot enable

here a picture for the i2c scan, you may notice that there is a gap between the addresses, 0x49. That is the device connected to channel 1.

• I’ll give you the benefit of the doubt and assume that you’ve properly set up the address of your slave. Did you happen to probe and see what’s coming from the master? This also might be a silly question but is your system on with the 3v3 active while you’re trying to scan the device? – user103380 Dec 28 '19 at 15:52
• Address are properly set, i ust have recently tried to hook up that missing device to another slave master and it showed up. Unfortunately i do not have access to an oscilloscope. Yes i am running on a 3v3 source, is there a problem with usin 3v3? – Jake quin Dec 28 '19 at 16:07
• Is that your actual schematic? Are pull-ups for SDA and SCL really 1 ohm ? – Justme Dec 28 '19 at 17:16
• @Justme the raspberry pi has already 1.8k pullups on those lines so, i just placed a slot incase i wanted to adjust it. – Jake quin Dec 28 '19 at 19:15
