- 3.3 V - power supply pin 3.3 V.
- GND - chip ground pin.
- RST - RESET pin
- SDA - I2C logic pin, communication interface data line.
- SCL - I2C logic pin, communication interface clock line.
- A0 / A1 - I2C address pins, default interface address(configurable)
- Optional Interrupt Pin - optional interrupt pins.
