I've been building an IMU for the past couple days that uses the i2c ITG-3200. The ITG operates @ 3.3v so I used a logic converter for the two communication lines. The problem I am having is reading the values from the ITG. When I open up the serial port, The only values that I get back are 0. I just used the stock ITG example code from spark fun:
Code:
/*
3/16/11
Basic Example Sketch for the ITG-3200 (http://www.sparkfun.com/products/9801)
SparkFun Electronics 2011
Ryan Owens

This code is public domain buy you buy me a beer if you use this and we meet someday (Beerware license).

To use this example code, attach:
Arduino  :  ITG-3200 Breakout
3.3V  :  VDD
3.3V  :  VIO
GND   :  GND
SDA   :  A4
SCL   :  A5

Load the sketch and open the serial window at 9600 bps. Arduino will output the raw X,Y and Z axis data being read from the gyroscope.

//The Wire library is used for I2C communication
#include <Wire.h>

//This is a list of registers in the ITG-3200. Registers are parameters that determine how the sensor will behave, or they can hold data that represent the
//sensors current status.
//To learn more about the registers on the ITG-3200, download and read the datasheet.
char WHO_AM_I = 0x00;
char SMPLRT_DIV= 0x15;
char DLPF_FS = 0x16;
char GYRO_XOUT_H = 0x1D;
char GYRO_XOUT_L = 0x1E;
char GYRO_YOUT_H = 0x1F;
char GYRO_YOUT_L = 0x20;
char GYRO_ZOUT_H = 0x21;
char GYRO_ZOUT_L = 0x22;

//This is a list of settings that can be loaded into the registers.
//DLPF, Full Scale Register Bits
//FS_SEL must be set to 3 for proper operation
//Set DLPF_CFG to 3 for 1kHz Fint and 42 Hz Low Pass Filter
char DLPF_CFG_0 = (1<<0);
char DLPF_CFG_1 = (1<<1);
char DLPF_CFG_2 = (1<<2);
char DLPF_FS_SEL_0 = (1<<3);
char DLPF_FS_SEL_1 = (1<<4);

//I2C devices each have an address. The address is defined in the datasheet for the device. The ITG-3200 breakout board can have different address depending on how
//the jumper on top of the board is configured. By default, the jumper is connected to the VDD pin. When the jumper is connected to the VDD pin the I2C address
//is 0x69.
char itgAddress = 0x69;

//In the setup section of the sketch the serial port will be configured, the i2c communication will be initialized, and the itg-3200 will be configured.

{
  //Create a serial connection using a 9600bps baud rate.
  Serial.begin(9600);
 
  //Initialize the I2C communication. This will set the Arduino up as the 'Master' device.
  Wire.begin();
 
  //Read the WHO_AM_I register and print the result
  char id=0;
  id = itgRead(itgAddress, 0x00); 
  Serial.print("ID: ");
  Serial.println(id, HEX);
 
  //Configure the gyroscope
  //Set the gyroscope scale for the outputs to +/-2000 degrees per second
  itgWrite(itgAddress, DLPF_FS, (DLPF_FS_SEL_0|DLPF_FS_SEL_1|DLPF_CFG_0));
  //Set the sample rate to 100 hz
  itgWrite(itgAddress, SMPLRT_DIV, 9);
}

//The loop section of the sketch will read the X,Y and Z output rates from the gyroscope and output them in the Serial Terminal
void loop()
{
  //Create variables to hold the output rates.
  int xRate, yRate, zRate;

  //Read the x,y and z output rates from the gyroscope.
  xRate = readX();
  yRate = readY();

  //Print the output rates to the terminal, seperated by a TAB character.
  Serial.print(xRate);
  Serial.print('\t');
  Serial.print(yRate);
  Serial.print('\t');
  Serial.println(zRate); 

  //Wait 10ms before reading the values again. (Remember, the output rate was set to 100hz and 1reading per 10ms = 100hz.)
  delay(10);
}

I checked with my oscilloscope that the signals are being converted properly and that the ITG was wired correctly. Does anyone know if there are any differences with the leonardos i2c than the other arduinos, or what my issue could be? Thank you.

How have you wired the the module to the Leonardo? Are you aware that the Leonardo doesn't have the SDA and SCL on A4/5, because that's mentioned in the code? The Leonardo has separate pins labeled SDA and SCL for that.

The level converter isn't necessary with I2C, pullups to 3V3 should be enough.

I checked the data sheet for the atmega32u4 and double checked the wiring. It's connected correctly. I have the pull-ups enabled. Do you think That because the level converter isn't necessary it's causing problems with the signal?

The Leonardo is actually more compatible with 3.3V signals, since it switches form 0 to 1 at a lower voltage than the Uno.

Did you try the i2c_scanner ?

Thanks Erdin for the reply, I just uploaded the code and ran it through a test. I got one address back(0x3C). But, I have a total of four i2c devices on the circuit board. Shouldn't I be receiving an address from them as well? If so I must be having some problem reading those three sensors?

Yes, every I2C device should answer with its address.

But wait, the i2c_scanner has been demolished by someone. So I'm not sure anymore.
Nick Gammon has also a i2c scanner, http://www.gammon.com.au/forum/?id=10896
Search on that page for "I2C Scanner".

Okay I must be having some issues with the sensors for I am still only getting back the one address. I'm going to work on the board a little and get back to you with an update in the next couple hours. LMK if you think of anything else.

Wo where did you connect the I2C then? You should have checked the schematics of the Leonardo, the datasheet of the ATmega32U4 does make sense when you know where the Leonardo pins are routed to. Again: show us your wirings!

I have the pull-ups enabled.

What does that mean? Do you have the internal pull-ups enabled?

What devices are on the circuit board then? We know of exactly one yet. Are all 3V3 devices or do you have 5V devices too?
