Hello,

Can anyone help me with guidelines to use hps driven I2C pins on DE1SOC board 

Thanks,

Hi snehal_p


For the DE1-SOC dev kit, I see that the I2C is connected to a multiplexer in which you will need to toggle the HPS_I2C_CONTROL (HPS_GPIO48) to switch between the FPGA owning the i2c or the HPS.


Once the dev kit boots into the linux environment you could try searching for GPIO48 under the /dev directory to toggle the i2c to HPS.


You could refer to the document below section 3.6.5

Hello Jingyang,

I'm trying to interface rtc ds3231 breakout board to DE1SOC using hps driven I2C . I2c bus is being not detected.

 

Thanks,

Hello Jingyang,

 

PFA screenshot of error I get when I compile the demonstration i2c switch code. I receive similar error when I compile c code for rtc interface. Can you please help me with this.

 

Thanks,

Hi


It seems like there is a missing define in the make file.

Could you check if there is a define for the CV, something like below:

"ALT_DEVICE_FAMILY = soc_cv_av"

Hi Snehal


It seems like the i2c is working if it is able to probe the i2c bus.

What is the expected value that the i2cget command should return?

Hello Jingyang,

 

Expected value is whatever we write as in this case 255.

Basically I'm trying to interface rtc ds3231 to this i2c bus. What would be the appropriate approach to use this I2C bus to interface external rtc breakout board.

Can you please help me with approach.

 

Thanks,

snehal_p

Hi Snehal_p


The method you are using would be a good tool with start with.

Could you try getting some waveform of the i2c so that we could see if the read and write request is sending properly to the rtc breakout board?
