I2C Digital Potentiometer by Nicholas Zambetti and Shawn Bonkowski

Demonstrates use of the Wire library Controls AD5171 digital potentiometer via I2C/TWI On Wiring v1 boards the SCL and SDA pins are: 0 and 1 On Wiring S board the SCL and SDA pins are: 8 and 9

#include <Wire.h>

void setup()
  Wire.begin();  // join i2c bus (address optional for master)

byte val = 0;

void loop()
  Wire.beginTransmission(44);  // transmit to device #44 (0x2c)
                               // device address is specified in datasheet
  Wire.write(byte(0x00));      // sends instruction byte  
  Wire.write(val);             // sends potentiometer value byte  
  Wire.endTransmission();      // stop transmitting

  val++;         // increment value
  if (val == 64)  // if reached 64th position (max)
    val = 0;     // start over from lowest value
