    BMA456 fifo_err flag not working

    Hello,

    I'm using a BMA456 and i'm having trouble with the fifo_err flag in the ERR_REG ( 0x02 ) register.

    The device is configured as follows:

    •  Accelerometer
      • Nominal sampling frequency is 1600 Hz
      • Range is +/- 2G
      • Mode is set to high-performance
    • FIFO 
      • Overwrite when full
      • Unfiltered data with no downsampling
      • Headerless mode

    I'm performing a test where i let the FIFO overflow but the flag is never set. The FIFO seems to be working fine and filling.

    Am i missing some configurations?

    I'm using a custom driver for space constraints but i based the logic on your example fifo_full_headerless_mode.

    I suspect that the problem may be that i'm not initializing the ASIC but i'm following your example which doesn't initialize it either.

    Thanks for the support.

    Yes, that is the example i used to base my custom library. The example uses the fifo full interrupt while i would like to use the fifo_err flag to detect a fifo overflow.

    No help? Does anyone know if in order to read the fifo_err flag i have to initialize the ASIC? Is it possible to have a list of function supported by the BMA456 with and witouth the ASIC?

    Thanks

    Again.. sorry to bother.

    Is it possible to have a list of function supported by the BMA456 with and witouth the ASIC?

    I can't find this information in the datasheet.

    Also, why some example initialize the ASIC while others don't?

    I really would like an answer.
