  • First of all, I received my board with two pairs of pins in short, due to solder excess. The pins seem to be unused by the IC, so I guess there should be no problem. But the board doesn’t work.
    I am trying to use the board with a PSoC evaluation board with no success. I examined the I2C communication with an Agilent oscilloscope capable of capturing and examining the I2C protocol and the I2C master is generating the clock and data signals correctly, but the gyro slave doesn’t respond.
    For instance, I scanned all the I2C addresses and the gyro did not ACK the master. I tried the same connections as BadgerHat, even connected a LED to the INT pin with no sign of activity.
    Is it possible for the board to be DOA? Otherwise, how should I be sure it is operational? Are there any suggested test procedures?

No public wish lists :(
