    [BMI323] Enable Interrupt in Development Desktop 2.1

    [BMI323] Enable Interrupt in Development Desktop 2.1


    Hi all, 

    I have purchased the Shuttle Board 3.0 BMI323 and the Shuttle Board 3.0 BMI323. I want to test the step counter using the Development Desktop 2.1 software. Specifically, I want to get insight into when steps are detected and in whicht scenarios steps are counted erroneously. 

    However, I have so far not been able to enable the step counter interrupt, or any other interrupt for that matter. I have followed the BMI32x User Manual up until section 3.3.1 and have also verified that the sensor is in fact producing accelaration and gyro data when is press "Start streaming". 

    Following the manual in section 3.3.1, I noticed that you are supposed to "Enable the interrupts in register 0x10 register", but the provided screenshot does not show any register with that adress in the GUI. Likewise, when I open the "Feature configuration settings" panel, I cannot find any settings with the addresses provided within the user manual (these wold be 0x10, 0x14, 0x38, 0x3A, 0x3B). 

    I then tried to manually set the registers via "Register Access" or Ctrl+R. When I write anything to 0x10, the data still comes out as a string of zeroes after I click read. 

    If I understand this correctly, enabling register 0x10 is the first step you have to take in order to use the interrupts. Does anybody have any ideas what might be the reason for this behaviour? Why can I not access/write 0x10?

    Hey there, 

    thanks for the swift reply.

    I tried both, but the result is still the same. After running "update_bootloader.bat" the LED on the board turned from red to green.

    Sorry. Please try to double click the bat file at "C:\COINES\v2.8.8\firmware\app3.0\update_dd_fw.bat". This should resolve the issue.


    Perfect, this works. Thanks!
