Has anyone tried to interact with this breakout board via a bus pirate in SPI mode?
I have connected the bus pirate to the ADXL345 breakout board and also connected a Saleae Logic Analyzer (e.g. I can see bus pirate driving SPI reasonably).
The problem is I see no response from the ADXL345.
The odd thing is when I toggle the power (bus pirate “W” and “w” command), the voltage varies between 3.3 and 2.5volts respectively. In other words, there appears to be some back current.
I have tired this on two different ADXL345 breakout boards with the same results.
While I see lots of code using this device in I2C mode, I find very little on using in via SPI.
Anybody have any insights into what is happening,…why the odd back current on Vcc when powered off?
BTW I am able to successfully interact with a LIS3DH accelerometer in SPI mode just fine with this same bus pirate.
