I am trying to interface a BMA456 using the provided Github API as my guide. However, I am using an embedded 8051 chip, so I have to adapt the code to work on our 8-bit chip.
I perform all the steps as per this image:
However, when I read the content of the INTERNAL_STAT register (0x2A), the answer is 0x84, indicating both an odr_high_error and a sns_stop.
What does that mean? Especially the sns_stop? I could not find any information regarding it's meaning.
Hope someone can help.
Yes, I am aware that something is not correct, hence my post here. But the error message does not help me and I was wondering if you could provide some insight into what it means. But I guess it just means "it ain't working"...
In either case, I find it ridiculous that one hast to write more than a kb of data to a sensor chip every time it boots...Yes, it's a powerful chip with lots of options but cmon, this feels like a quick and dirty hack.
The 1KB configuration file contains the algorithm to implement the feature. To use the feature, you must load the configuration file.
sns_stop means sensor stopped, you could see it from BMA456 data sheet.
