    BMI160 - Accel and Gyro ranges.

    Hi 

    I am setting the ranges as follows: 2G for the accelerometer and 250 deg/s for the gyro. I am reading the ranges back from registers 0x41 and 0x43 and I am getting the value 3 for both. I thought I would get 2 for the accelerometer and 250 for the gyro. Am I doing something wrong? What does the value 3 mean?

    Thanks for your support

    Regards

    Here is my code

     

    uint8_t range;
    int8_t rslt;
    uint16_t len = 1;
    rslt=bmi160_get_regs(BMI160_ACCEL_RANGE_ADDR, &range, len, &ss_sensor);

    Hello ,

    If you want to set register value, you should use bmi160_set_regs() in your code.

    "I am setting the ranges as follows: 2G for the accelerometer and 250 deg/s for the gyro.", 0x41 register value should be written to 0x03 for 2G range. 0x43 register value should be written to 0x03 for 250°/S.

    There was BMI160 example code in github, you could refer it from https://github.com/BoschSensortec/BMI160_driver/blob/master/README.md.
