How to connect MPU6050 gyro sensor and USB 6000

Go to solution

Hello, my name is Bruno, I'm Brazilian but I'm working at Proteor a French company. We are trying to connect Makeblock module "Me 3-Axis Accelometer and Gyro Sensor V1.1" with the NI USB 6000 card. However the sensor uses an I2C connection and the USB 6000 does not have this pin. Is it possible to do I2C Communication with the USB-6000 daq. In the sensor's datasheet it does not have the addresses of the registers, Gyro X, Y, Z, so I do not know how to do this "manually", just by changing the SCL and SDA bits to get the data. For now we will use the DAQExpress to program. It would help if anyone can give me advice, I'd really appreciate it.

Hello Bruno,

Unfortunatly, you won't be able to communicate with your device using the I2C protocol since you do not have any compatible pins on your device. Especially with DAQExpress, this software isn't flexible enough to let you program an I2C interface.

Thanks Caillot,
I'll try the NI USB 8451, because of the I2C protocol on it.
