1_pretet7: ITG3200 driver: Initialization issue

Hi Alex, Just a small issue with ITG3200 driver. The ITG3200 requires some delay after reset to stabilize values (10msec by datasheet, as I remember). Currently we do not have any delay before we starting calibration. As a result calibration not always succesfull. (sometimes I had values 3-5 instead...

Hi,

To be able to use nunchack, you would have to apply patch from here Direct connection of NUNCHACK

ITG3200 Driver Settings: LPF

Hi Alex,
In the current implementation of the ITG3200 sensor, it's LPF is set to the 10Hz. It looks really strange setting for Gyro, as it would increase Gyro response time. Am I missing something and inventing a wheel or it is worth to try other LPF settings?

Re: WM+ with ITG3205

Hi, I have spent day trying to solve this issue using code workarounds, but was not able to find solution. Looks like WMP firmaware has mistake in code which converts 16bit signed values from the ITG3205 to the WMP's 14bit unsigned. That is why I decided to connect ITG3205 directly to the arduino. R...

Re: Direct connection of NUNCHACK

You can connect low voltage devices directly to the arduino, but you have to follow the rules: 1) Disable internal pullups (or you can damage your devices) 2) Use external pullups connected to the low voltage source (3.3v or 2.8v) This is Alex notes about pullups: SPECIAL NOTE ABOUT THE PULL-UPS: - ...

Re: Direct connection of NUNCHACK

Rurek:
If you have LLC, you can supply to Vcc (+5v) and connect Nunchack to the arduino and connect ITG3205 to LLC. If you don't it s better to use +2.8v from WMP and remove pullups from Nunchack.
