I2C controled 8 relay driver switches plug-in devices

Megabug posted his I2C relay driver board for controlling 8 outputs. It controls 8 relay switches in which one pin of each switch is common, while the other pins are available through 8 screw type headers. It uses the PCA9554 8bit I2C port expander to drive a ULN2803A buffer which in return drives the relay coils. All buffer input pins are broken out so direct TTL drive is possible by bypassing the I2C port expander.
