Hi! I have a problem to detect the accelerometre (MMA865XFC) with my computer. I have installed the sofware Sensor Toolbox (freescale.com/sensortoolbox) and FTDI Driver without problem but,

when I open the Sensor Toolbox and enter in the opcion “Out of Box Sensor Demostration”, the program don’t detect the sensor.

 

If I enter “Create Your Own Gui”, put the option “MMA8491 Accelerometer Demo” and choose the COM Port that detects de computer, the program will run without errors, but when I click the bottom “Start” the Sensor Toolbox, it doesn't register the results.

 

However, when I click the buttom “Start”, a red light of the accelerometre turns on and turn off very quickly.

 

Does anyone know what can it be?

 

Thanks!
