I2C Write

Write data to an I2C slave device or an I2C slave device register

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

Description

Write data to an I2C device on the Arduino® hardware. Using this block, you can also write data to a specific register on the I2C slave.

Ports

Input

expand all

The input port write data to the I2C slave device or I2C slave device register.

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

Output

expand all

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 to which you want to write the data. The I2C slave device address is a 7-bit address.

Specify this address as an integer or in hexadecimal format by using hex2dec(), for example hex2dec(‘20’).

Select the byte ordering that your I2C slave supports, to write the data.

The two byte ordering options are:

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

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

Select this check box to write data to a specific I2C slave register.

When you clear this parameter, the Remove stop bit at the end of data transfer parameter is displayed. Using this parameter, you can modify the write operation according to your requirements. For more information, Support I2C Communication

When you clear this parameter, the block sends a STOP condition. This condition indicates that the block has terminated the data transmission and the I2C bus is free for any other I2C master block to initiate the read/write operation.

When you select this parameter, the block sends another START condition followed by an address and read/write bit. The block sends any number of start conditions recursively. Such a repeated START condition allows write operations to the slave devices without releasing the bus. No other master block interrupts the operation.

Dependencies

This parameter appears only when you clear the Enable register access parameter.

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

Dependencies

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

Select this option to display the output error status. When you select this 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 write operation at the output port.

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