Dual IMU 9 on I2c Line

Hey Guys,

Short issue. Need to put 2 IMU9’s on the I2C line and I am wondering if it is possible. It doesnt look like the address on the L3g can be rewritten without a hardware mod. Is there a way to change the slave address on the whole unit? ALSO I am running the IMU’s off an arduino of course…


Hello, Dan.

There is not a way to change the addresses of the sensors on the MinIMU-9. You might consider using software I2C to separate the buses the two MinIMU-9’s communicate on. Alternatively, you might consider using a I2C multiplexer if you want to use the original I2C bus, but I have not tried this.
