I2C not working with Function calling by Ticker/Low Power Ticker.


I have several switch cases each for each sensor associated. I have started 1 second Low POwer Ticker, after each ticking I am going to next consecutive switch case (in idle time, code is running under while(1)). All cases initiating I2C communication to fetch data within 1 second(More than enough). But Problem here is I am not getting any data in this case. So I just removed the Low Power Ticker or Normal Ticker, and just called Switch Case function from while (1) loop forever without ticker, then all data coming perfectly ? why so? is there something associated with ticker/low power ticker that I can't do I2C when function called via tickers?

Hi Chirag,

Since I2C object is not interrupt safe, so the behavior to call it in ISR is undefined.

The better way is to utilize mbed-events to achieve the periodically calling, you can refer here


Please feel free to ask me any questions!
