Is the telemetry port an I2C?

Hi,

I am working with Aero RTF kit and want to use lidar lite v3 or px4flow to do altitude and position hold. I refer this link: http://www.instructables.com/id/Intel-Aero-Drone-Altitude-and-Position-Hold-Using-/ Intel Aero Drone - Altitude and Position Hold Using PX4Flow: 11 Steps (with Pictures) , as it said, " Basically what we are doing is first updating the FPGA so that it can use the telemetry port as an I2C connection. " So can I think that if I do not run the following command:

> jam -aprogram aero-rtf_i2c.jam , the telemetry port is not an i2c?

but when I refer the link to connect a lidar: https://docs.px4.io/en/flight_controller/intel_aero.html https://docs.px4.io/en/flight_controller/intel_aero.html

"The Intel® Aero Ready to Fly Drone has two ports with I2C: One labled COMPASS and the other TELEMETRY." I am puzzled, should I run : > jam -aprogram aero-rtf_i2c.jam before connecting lidar lite v3 via telemetry port ?

I am using ubuntu 16.04. and running this command : aero-get-version.py , both AIRMAP_VERSION and Aero FC Firmware Version are unkonw.

Hi weiqi_liu,

 

 

Thank you for your interest in the Intel Aero drone.

 

The jam file is a pre-compiled FPGA file, it configures the telemetry port to expose an i2c interface.

 

By default it is not enabled, the jam file configures the pins.
