Tutorial - SparkFun AS3935 Lightning Detector Hookup Guide (v20)
about 5 months ago
SPI is working for me... I2C is not. Luckily it's a rainy day here so there is better testing opportunity!
Thank you CF, that's the kind of clarity and direction I was hoping for!
Can the Sparkfun guys elaborate on the specific reasons why support of I2C for the AS3935 was dropped? A little detail of what you ran into, or how the chip behaved would be very educational for those of us who have never looked deeply enough into a chip to consider whether it should be used for a specific scenario which was listed in the documentation.
Even 5 minutes of ramblings from who ever handled it would be really insightful!

Has anyone thought of hacking this multi-meter so that an Arduino or other micro-controller can read the output? It digitizes that test results to post them to the LCD, surely they could be picked up and forwarded to a serial port or stored to EEPROM or a SD card. Sure would make a nice way to capture data for long tests when a bench meter can't sit there.
No public wish lists :(
