    BMI323 fails to start feature engine, acc or gyro. Only reads 0x8000

    Hi,

    I'm building my own board with a BMI323. I tripple checked the connections, everything seams fine. I've tried resoldering 3 different BMI323 all with the same result. I'm using the latest offical bmi3 github drivers and all the three BMI323 answeres the correct chip ID but fails when soft-resetting and trying to start the feature engine.

    BMI323 CAD:ed like this:

    I've taken some I2C logs where I ignore the BMI3_E_FEATURE_ENGINE_STATUS error so I can also configure and read the acc+gyro both with a 0x8000 response on all axis:

    I2C communication looks fine:

    What am I doing wrong?

    No one has any idea?

    I got a BMI323 shuttle board 3.0 and hocked this up to the nRF52832 Dev kit and I get exactly the same response so I'm thinking there is somthing with the driver integration.

    tobbeanton_1-1712579803618.png

    Since the BMI323 answere with the correct CHIP_ID Im thinking it is the delay function that might not be working correctly? I'm using the nRF SDK function:

    static void bmi3_delay_us(uint32_t period, void *intf_ptr)
    {
      nrf_delay_us(period);
    }

     

    Some further updates.  I got some LSM6DS3 which are pin compatible and those work fine. This further suggest there is some driver problem or the integration of it. The LSM6DS3 uses the same underlying I2C driver so most likely the problem lies higher up.

    Hi tobbeanton,

    1. Could you provide your BMI323 schematic for double check?
    2. We uploaded BMI323 example code on STM32 for your reference. This example code based BMI323 sensor API & example code on github https://github.com/boschsensortec/BMI323_SensorAPI
    3. You can check the correctness of nrf_delay_us(period) function on your host platform.
