PSoC 5, 3 & 1 MCU

Anonymous

Dear all,

   

I'm new on PSoC and I got a problem of communication between a light sensor TSL2561 and my PSoC 5

   

(here the doc of the sensor : https://cdn-shop.adafruit.com/datasheets/TSL25911_Datasheet_EN_v1.pdf )

   

I can see the buffer on the debug mode but theres are empty, and my sensor don't write his data inside. The datasheet of the sensor talk about perform a four-byte I2C read operation using the auto-increment in the page 17, but I don't understand what is this.

   

 

   

My code :

   

#include <project.h>

   

#define TSL_ADDR    0x29

   

int main()
{
    CyGlobalIntEnable; 
    uint8 mwbuff1[7];
    I2C_Start();

   

    for(;;)
    {
        I2C_MasterReadBuf(TSL_ADDR,mwbuff1,7,I2C_MODE_COMPLETE_XFER);

   

        CyDelay(500);
    }
    I2C_Stop();
}

   

 

   

So what I have to add in my code, for read the light sensor's data.

   

 

   

Thanks.

Did you add the Pull up resistors to your I2C lines.  Please post your code so we can check it.

Thanks bobgoar,

   

Yes I have put the pull up resistor.

Look into datasheet how the scl pin should be configured: Open drain, drives low.

   

Keep in mind that the APIs return a status byte which, when non-zero indicate an error condition.
