Topic: I2C on Arduino Due not working. (Read 476 times) previous topic - next topic


We previously used Arduino Duemilanove with our MMA8452Q Accelerometer and it worked fine, used the same code on the Due and it's not even recognizing an i2c device. The accelerometer has pull up resistors built in, so we used the pins that do not have built in pull-ups on the Due. But it's still not working. Any ideas on what it can be?
Code :
Code: [Select]
#include <Wire.h> // Used for I2C

// The SparkFun breakout board defaults to 1, set to 0 if SA0 jumper on the bottom of the board is set
#define MMA8452_ADDRESS 0x1D  // 0x1D if SA0 is high, 0x1C if low

//Define a few of the registers that we will be accessing on the MMA8452
#define OUT_X_MSB 0x01
#define XYZ_DATA_CFG  0x0E
#define WHO_AM_I   0x0D
#define CTRL_REG1  0x2A

#define GSCALE 2 // Sets full-scale range to +/-2, 4, or 8g. Used to calc real g values.

void setup()
  Serial.println("MMA8452 Basic Example");

  Wire.begin(); //Join the bus as a master

  initMMA8452(); //Test and intialize the MMA8452

void loop()

  int accelCount[3];  // Stores the 12-bit signed value
  readAccelData(accelCount);  // Read the x/y/z adc values

  // Now we'll calculate the accleration value into actual g's
  float accelG[3];  // Stores the real accel value in g's
  for (int i = 0 ; i < 3 ; i++)
    accelG[i] = (float) accelCount[i] / ((1<<12)/(2*GSCALE));  // get actual g value, this depends on scale being set

  // Print out values
  for (int i = 0 ; i < 3 ; i++)
    Serial.print(accelG[i], 4);  // Print g values
    Serial.print("\t");  // tabs in between axes

  delay(10);  // Delay here for visibility

void readAccelData(int *destination)
  byte rawData[6];  // x/y/z accel register data stored here

  readRegisters(OUT_X_MSB, 6, rawData);  // Read the six raw data registers into data array

  // Loop to calculate 12-bit ADC and g value for each axis
  for(int i = 0; i < 3 ; i++)
    int gCount = (rawData[i*2] << 8) | rawData[(i*2)+1];  //Combine the two 8 bit registers into one 12-bit number
    gCount >>= 4; //The registers are left align, here we right align the 12-bit integer

    // If the number is negative, we have to make it so manually (no 12-bit data type)
    if (rawData[i*2] > 0x7F)
      gCount = ~gCount + 1;
      gCount *= -1;  // Transform into negative 2's complement #

    destination[i] = gCount; //Record this gCount into the 3 int array

// Initialize the MMA8452 registers
// See the many application notes for more info on setting all of these registers:
// http://www.freescale.com/webapp/sps/site/prod_summary.jsp?code=MMA8452Q
void initMMA8452()
  byte c = readRegister(WHO_AM_I);  // Read WHO_AM_I register
  if (c == 0x2A) // WHO_AM_I should always be 0x2A
    Serial.println("MMA8452Q is online...");
    Serial.print("Could not connect to MMA8452Q: 0x");
    Serial.println(c, HEX);
    while(1) ; // Loop forever if communication doesn't happen

  MMA8452Standby();  // Must be in standby to change registers

  // Set up the full scale range to 2, 4, or 8g.
  byte fsr = GSCALE;
  if(fsr > 8) fsr = 8; //Easy error check
  fsr >>= 2; // Neat trick, see page 22. 00 = 2G, 01 = 4A, 10 = 8G
  writeRegister(XYZ_DATA_CFG, fsr);

  //The default data rate is 800Hz and we don't modify it in this example code

  MMA8452Active();  // Set to active to start reading

// Sets the MMA8452 to standby mode. It must be in standby to change most register settings
void MMA8452Standby()
  byte c = readRegister(CTRL_REG1);
  writeRegister(CTRL_REG1, c & ~(0x01)); //Clear the active bit to go into standby

// Sets the MMA8452 to active mode. Needs to be in this mode to output data
void MMA8452Active()
  byte c = readRegister(CTRL_REG1);
  writeRegister(CTRL_REG1, c | 0x01); //Set the active bit to begin detection

// Read bytesToRead sequentially, starting at addressToRead into the dest byte array
void readRegisters(byte addressToRead, int bytesToRead, byte * dest)
  Wire.endTransmission(false); //endTransmission but keep the connection active

  Wire.requestFrom(MMA8452_ADDRESS, bytesToRead); //Ask for bytes, once done, bus is released by default

  while(Wire.available() < bytesToRead); //Hang out until we get the # of bytes we expect

  for(int x = 0 ; x < bytesToRead ; x++)
    dest[x] = Wire.read();   

// Read a single byte from addressToRead and return it as a byte
byte readRegister(byte addressToRead)
  Wire.endTransmission(false); //endTransmission but keep the connection active

  Wire.requestFrom(MMA8452_ADDRESS, 1); //Ask for 1 byte, once done, bus is released by default

  while(!Wire.available()) ; //Wait for the data to come back
  return Wire.read(); //Return this one byte

// Writes a single byte (dataToWrite) into addressToWrite
void writeRegister(byte addressToWrite, byte dataToWrite)
  Wire.endTransmission(); //Stop transmitting


"Wire.endTransmission(false);" is not supported on the DUE.  You'll need to code around this.

Search this forum a bit, and you'll find some work-arounds.
