Library Description

The library initializes and defines the I2C bus driver and drivers that offer a choice for writing data in the register. The library includes the function for reading the X/Y/Z axis data, orient chip, detect tap and slope on the chip and function for reading the temperature data. The user also has the function for initializes chip, set offset and software reset.

Key functions:

  • float accel6_getAxis(uint8_t axis) - Functions for reading the axis data.
  • void accel6_getOrient(uint8_t *z_orient, uint8_t *xy_orient) - Functions for reading the orient.
  • uint8_t accel6_getTapStatus() - Functions for detect tap on the x/y/z axis.

Example description

The application is composed of three sections:

  • System Initialization -  Initializes I2C module.
  • Application Initialization - Initializes Driver init and settings accelerometer data range, bandwidth, mode and sleep timer which are necessary for the init chip.
  • Application Task - (code snippet) - Reads the Accel X / Y / Z axis data in mg, 
    Temperature data in C, detects the orientation of the X,Y, and Z axis
    and checking on which axis the tap is detected.
    All data logs on USB UART for every 500 ms.

Additional notes and information

Depending on the development board you are using, you may need USB UART clickUSB UART 2 click or RS232 click to connect to your PC, for development systems with no UART to USB interface available on the board. The terminal available in all MikroElektronika compilers, or any other terminal application of your choice, can be used to read the message.
