Project Fin i2c Issues


#1

I am having issues with a PR33-28 board from NCD. It does not show up on the list of i2c addresses but the PR20-10 does show up and a DS1307 clock I had laying around shows up.

Hi @jsmedley,

I’ve used some of the NCD boards before (not explicitly the PR33-28 however). I was wondering, how have you connected the I2C bus from the Fin to the PR33-28? You may need to check the pull-up resistor header on the PR33-28 (see the image below) if you aren’t using any NCD adapters.

If you could send a picture of how you’ve connected the Fin to the PR33-28, I might be able to help!

Cheers,

Alex

Interestingly I was getting away without a shared common ground and with a shared common ground everything works now.

Correction: Our MC7455 is causing ths not to work when it is connected all i2c channels respond.

Glad to know you got it working! :smile:

I have confirmed that the Project Fin board has issues with i2c communication with 2 different modems attached.

MC7455 and SIM7100

Hmm this is curious, I’ll check this out tomorrow and see if I also have similar issues with my ME909s-120. If you run the i2cdetect -y 1 via apt-get install -y i2c-tools do you see any devices listed? I assume that it works without the modems attached?

Yes I see the 5 address I expect respond back but then once the modem is installed all address respond back when running i2cdetect -y 1 and it works without the modem installed.

It would be interested to know if you have the same issue.
