I2C Read

Read data from I2C slave device or I2C slave device register

  • Library:
  • Simulink Support Package for Arduino Hardware / Common

Description

Read serial data from an I2C slave. Using this block, you can also read data from a specific register on the I2C slave device.

For more information on I2C Communication, refer to I2C Read/Write.

Ports

Output

expand all

Output port to read data from an I2C slave device. The size of the data that the port emits is based on the Data size (N) parameter.

Data Types: single | double | int8 | int16 | int32 | uint8 | uint16 | uint32

Output port to display error status. For more information, see Output error status.

Dependencies

This port appears only when you select the Output error status parameter.

Data Types: uint8

Parameters

expand all

Select the specific module on the board that you are using.

Enter the I2C slave device address from which you want to read data. You can specify this address in hexadecimal format hex2dec(), for example, hex2dec(‘10').

Select the byte ordering that your I2C slave supports.

The two byte ordering options are:

  • Big Endian — The most significant byte is read first over the I2C bus. This option is the default option.

  • Little Endian — The least significant byte is read first over the I2C bus.

Select this check box to enable reading data from a specific register on the I2C slave device.

When you clear this parameter, the Send NACK at the end of data transfer and Remove stop bit at the end of data transfer parameters are displayed. Using these parameters, you can modify the read operation according to your requirements.

Enter the slave device register address from which you want to read the data.

Specify this address as an integer or in hexadecimal format by using hex2dec(), for example, hex2dec(‘10’).

Dependencies

This parameter is enabled only when you select the Enable register access parameter.

Select the data type to read from I2C slave device.

Enter the data size that you want to read from the I2C slave device for the selected data type.

Select this option to display the error status during data transmission.

When you select the Output error status parameter, the block configures an output port. The port on the block is labeled as Status, indicating that the block outputs the status of the read operation at the output port.

The block outputs the status as a uint8 value. Each value corresponds to a data transfer status.

Status ValueStatus Description

8BUS_ERROR
16BUS_NOT_IN_USE

Specify how often this block reads the data from the I2C slave. Enter a value greater than zero.
