    No data avaiable in fifo while fifo's watermark flag int_fwm_en is set

    No data avaiable in fifo while fifo's watermark flag int_fwm_en is set

     

     

    Hi there,

     

    I run into a problem where the int_fwm_en bit is constantly set even after emptying the contents of the fifo. 

     

    No ISR routine is used yet so the code polls for any motion or fifo watermark flags (via I2C)  to reguarly (once per second) empty the fifo contents. 

    What I can see on the scope is that the watermark interrupt is continously triggerd (high). I expect that the bug is in the setup of the bmx160 code as shown here below. I use a stm32 nucleo board for testing.

    The code that I use is here below,

    Any help is greatly appriciated

    Thanks!

    Re: No data avaiable in fifo while fifo's watermark flag int_fwm_en is set

    Hi André,

    You could refer attached exmaple code.
    As you would like to read data with FIFO poll, you could enable the following macro definition.
    #define ACC_GYRO
    #define FIFO_POLL

    Re: No data avaiable in fifo while fifo's watermark flag int_fwm_en is set

    i found the error in my own code 😕 ... I kept reading the fifo in small chunks without checking the watermark flag in the bmx160 itself.
