Operating Temperature range: -30 +85 deg-C
|1||3V3||Power supply 3.3 Volt|
|2||TXD||I||Cpu TXD serial line wired to GPS RX line|
|3||RXD||O||Cpu RXD serial line wired to GPS TX line|
|7||SDA||I/O||I2C Bus DATA|
|8||SCL||I||I2C Bus CLOCK|
|10||GND||Power supply GND|
The I2C bus is wired to the Compass, Accelerometer, Gyroscope and Barometer chips.
Fore more details please refere to the schematic.
These are the usable connectors where to plug this board using the factory default Linux image:
|Daisy connector||Serial device||I2C device|
|FOX Board G20 (+Daisy-1) D1||/dev/ttyS2||/dev/i2c-0|
|FOX Board G20 (+Daisy-1) D6||/dev/ttyS4||/dev/i2c-0|
|FOX Board G20 (+Daisy-1) D8||/dev/ttyS3||/dev/i2c-0|
They use Daisy classes defined inside the the Acme Systems ablib.py.
This example reads the NMEA message send by the GPS chip on the /dev/ttyS4 serial port (FOX.D6 or TERRA.D10 daisy connectors) and shows them on the Linux command line.

This example reads the X,Y and Z axis linear accelleration via I2C bus.
Run the example then move the DAISY-7 board so see linear speed variations.
~/playground/python/daisy7# python acc.py X= 1216 Y=-16528 Z= -2992 X= 1200 Y=-16272 Z= -2944 X= 1136 Y=-16288 Z= -3024 X= 1184 Y=-16272 Z= -2976 X= 1184 Y=-16304 Z= -2992 X= 1168 Y=-16352 Z= -2976
This example reads the X,Y and Z axis angular speed from the gyroscope chip via I2C bus.
Run the example then move the DAISY-7 board so see angular speed variations.
~/playground/python/daisy7# python gyro.py X= -10 Y= -18 Z= 8 X= -13 Y= -17 Z= 8 X= -2 Y= -16 Z= 6 X= -8 Y= -18 Z= 7 X= -7 Y= -18 Z= 8 X= -36 Y= -18 Z= 14
To read the Honeywell HMC5883L compass chip we have integrated in the ablib library part of the Think Bowl I2C Python Library.
Some features of this library are:
This is an example of code to use them:

Daisy-7 is a 9 Degrees of Freedom module (9DOF) with digital MEMS (accelerometer, gyroscope, compass, barometer) and a GPS receiver IC in just 4x4cm.
Note: the daisy flat cable to wire this board is not included. Don't forget to buy it (code FLAT-20CM)
GPS active antenna with SMA male connector to use Daisy-7 add-on board.
20 cm ribbon cable with 10 wires compatible with the Acme Daisy Cabling System.
At least one of these cables is required to connect each Daisy module.
if you need different lengths please consider making your own the cable using the IDC socket JJ-02291-10P-F and the flat cable FC-3754-1M.
