Honeywell pressure sensor with I2C


I am trying to communicate with honeywell pressure sensor. The sensor is not sending back an ack when the address and r/w bit is transmitted to it. Is there any settings to be done. The datasheet only asks to wait for the ack from the sensor and there are no mentioned settings. The address of my device is 0x38. When I change the slave address to eeprom it works fine.

datasheet: http://sensing.honeywell.com/index.php/ci_id/45841/la_id/1/document/1/re_id/0

snipets from the code:

main code

#include "mbed.h"
LPC2468_Init();            	// MAM functions
  ConfigurePLL();		// Setup clocks and PLL	
  LPC2468GPIOInit();		// Set the GPIOs
  __disable_interrupt();	// disable interrupts during VIC setup
  LPC2468VICInit();		// Setup VIC
  I2C_Init();			// Init I2C0 interface
    		// here should be the data from I2C slave finally
    I2CnBytes = 2;
    I2C_access = 0;					// write access
    I2C_sendbyte[0] = 0x38 + 0x00;	// address byte, 0x00 means write access
    I2C_sendbyte[1] = 0x00;		// 

    I2C_done = 0;
    I2C_StartTransmission();		// Set start flag, I2C data transfer is then operated by interrupts
    while (I2C_done==0) {};		// wait for I2C communication to complete, I2C_done is set by interrupt

    for (i=0; i<1000; i++) ;		// wait needed for I2C to finish before clearing flags
    I2C0CONCLR =  0x7C;            	// clear all flags

tx init

#include "mbed.h"
void I2C_StartTransmission(void)
  I2C0CONSET = 0x40;      //Set I2C enable flag
  I2C0CONSET = 0x20;      //Set start flag

Can some one tell me if I am missing some setting for the sensor.

Dear Shena,

If you're sure about pull-up 2k2 resistors on i2c bus then it must be usual "7 bit address issue", Please download "I2C_Debug_for_RealTerm" code and test what address seemd by mbed.. Then change the address in your code as you see on realterm.. This is an example for Honeywell sensor I use;

I2C i2c(p9,p10); ... char data [3]; int oraddr = 0xF1; labelled as 0x78H device !!! ...

i2c.start(); i2c.read(oraddr, data, 2);
