Library Description

This library contains all the functions required to work with SwipeSwitch click.

Key functions:

  • void swipeswitch_init() - Function for initialization chip.
  • void swipeswitch_goToEventMode() - Function for go to Event mode.
  • uint8_t swipeswitch_waitForReady() - Function for checking RDY pins.

Examples description

The application is composed of the three sections :

  • System Initialization - Initialization I2C module and sets INT pin as INPUT.
  • Application Initialization - Initialization and configuration of the chip for measurement.
  • Application Task - (code snippet) : In the first test mode, it checks whether or not a new event ocurred (TAP or SWIPE). If it did, it writes out data regarding that event via UART. In the second test mode, X and Y coordinates are being read and logged via UART.

Note: After reading data or status registers, there is a certain time which must pass until the device is ready again. The device is ready for a new conversion and reading after the Ready pin is LOW.

void applicationTask()
    if(displayMode == 0)
        while(swipeswitch_waitForReady() != 0);
        events = swipeswitch_readEvents();
        while(swipeswitch_waitForReady() != 0);
        gestures = swipeswitch_readGestures();

        if((events & (_SWIPESWITCH_EVENT_SWIPE)) != 0 )
            if((gestures & _SWIPESWITCH_GESTURE_SWIPE_UP) != 0)
                mikrobus_logWrite("SWIPE UP", _LOG_LINE);
            if((gestures & _SWIPESWITCH_GESTURE_SWIPE_DOWN) != 0)
                mikrobus_logWrite("SWIPE DOWN", _LOG_LINE);
            if((gestures & _SWIPESWITCH_GESTURE_SWIPE_LEFT) != 0)
                mikrobus_logWrite("SWIPE LEFT", _LOG_LINE);
            if((gestures & _SWIPESWITCH_GESTURE_SWIPE_RIGHT) != 0)
                mikrobus_logWrite("SWIPE RIGHT", _LOG_LINE);
        else if ((events & (_SWIPESWITCH_EVENT_TAP)) != 0)
            mikrobus_logWrite("TAP", _LOG_LINE);
        while(swipeswitch_waitForReady() != 0);
        xCoordinate = swipeswitch_readXCoordinate();
        while(swipeswitch_waitForReady() != 0);
        yCoordinate = swipeswitch_readYCoordinate();

        if((xCoordinate != oldXCoordinate) || (yCoordinate != oldYCoordinate))
            mikrobus_logWrite("Coordinate : (", _LOG_TEXT);
            IntToStr(xCoordinate, demoText);
            mikrobus_logWrite(demoText, _LOG_TEXT);
            mikrobus_logWrite(",", _LOG_TEXT);
            IntToStr(yCoordinate, demoText);
            mikrobus_logWrite(demoText, _LOG_TEXT);
            mikrobus_logWrite(")", _LOG_LINE);
            oldXCoordinate = xCoordinate;
            oldYCoordinate = yCoordinate;
    Delay_ms( 300 );
