Hello, did someone write some baremetal code for reading the mma8451 accelerometer data and also calculate the angles. Is there a tutorial anywhere?

Thanks

Hi,

You might also find useful my baremetal example code for the MMA8451Q accelerometer and FRDM-KL25Z platform. I will try to add a few lines of  code to calculate an angle of inclination using atan2 function and then I will post it here.

Regards,

Tomas

Hi,

Attached you can find the complete example code that computes both pitch and roll angles according to equations 37 and 38 in the AN3461.

I hope it helps.

Regards,

Tomas

Just in case you wanted a  convenient breakout board to interface and probe the data here is one: Accelerometer(MMA8451) 3-AXIS Digital Module - DoProto Electronics

Hi,

The FRDM-KL25ZDemo, which can be found in the KL25z sample code, contains baremetal code for angle calculation which can be found in the "angle_calculation" directory in the project folder. The KL25z sample code can be found here FRDM-KL25Z: Freescale Freedom Development Platform for Kinetis KL14/15/24/25 MCUs under Downloads >> Software Development Tools >> Lab and Test software. Hope this helps.

Hello:

You can give a look to the step by step tutorial in the next link. It does not mention the angle calculation, but you can develop your own algorithm with the basics explained:

Hope this helps!
