I2C to other devices

Postby Pier » Sun May 18, 2014 7:36 pm

I've been using the advanced version of UPiS for a few months and I'm very happy with it.
Now I'd like to use I2C to connect to other devices but my board is a top end which doesn't allow me to have access to the GPIO.
So I'm planning to use a board (http://www.dexterindustries.com/GrovePi/engineering/) which sits on top of the PI and it is also stackable. On top of that there would be the UPiS.
The documentation says the Pi (Model B) communicates with the board through I2C at address 0x04.
Do you see any compatibility issue stacking the three boards, also physically speaking? Can I still have access to the I2C to talk to UPiS?
By the way I'm using I2C to query UPiS status with firmware 1.06 beta and have no problem with it, beside the known problems other have found. Just to let you know.
Thanks in advance, Pier

OK

OK

I do not think there will be a problem

Can I still have access to the I2C to talk to UPiS?
Seems to be yes
By the way I'm using I2C to query UPiS status with firmware 1.06 beta and have no problem with it, beside the known problems other have found. Just to let you know.
OK
just one day more, and the official version will be released


Thanks in advance, Pier
