Tibbit #40 is based on the MCP4561 digital POT IC from Microchip. This IC has an 8-bit resolution. Refer to the Microchip datasheet for operation details.
There is one red and one yellow LED. The red LED is connected to the SCL line of the I²C interface, while the yellow LED is connected to the SDA line.
The use of Tibbit #40 is illustrated by a Tibbo BASIC test project. You can find it here: https://github.com/tibbotech/CA-Test-Tibbit-40.
