G-sensor FXLS8471Q

I follow the AN4692 to configure my G-sensor. The output seems is normal. When we roll over the G-sensor, there is a normal output. However, after that the G-sensor output would become zero again immediately. We already disable the Auto-wake/sleep mode and low power mode. Please help.

Hi Henry,

It is hard to say where the problem might be. If you posted here your source code and ideally also timing diagrams from a logic analyzer, I might be able to help you in your investigation.

Meanwhile, you may find useful my simple FXLS8471Q bare-metal example code or another example code illustrating the use of the vector-magnitude function.

Regards,

Tomas

Dear Tomas,

Below is my source code.

//     Set_Roll_Over();
//     Set_Transient_Detection();  
       GSensor_Write_Addr_Cmd(CTRL_REG1, 0x39);    // ODR = 1.56Hz, Normal mode, Active mode
       GSensor_Write_Addr_Cmd(CTRL_REG2, 0x02);    // Reset, High Resolution mode
