The I2C interface is most often used in the design of devices and instruments based on this module. For this, the module has I2C connector through which you can connect external devices and sensors.

Optionally, a BME280 is installed on the bottom-side of the module (7-bit address on I2C = 111011x). The address for BME280 is selected with jumpers on the bottom-side. The default address should be 1110111.
