Im trying to design a wixel to interface with a 9-DOF IMU from freedom IMU. I currently have the prototype working with arduino nano, but I would love to convert the project to wixel.
If anyone has any suggestions on how to get a wixel to communicate with an i2c based IMU it would be greatly appreciated.
Currently using this IMU

It behaves very similar to those produces by sparkfun. Both their 6-dof and 9-dof IMU’s use the SCL and SDA to communicate with the microcontroller.
As a first step, maybe you should try using the Wixel Serial-to-I²C App, which you can find in the Wixel user’s guide. This will allow you to see if you can get basic I2C communication working (e.g. reading some basic ID register), without having to write any Wixel code.
Once you get that working, you should learn the C programming language, look at the other apps in the Wixel SDK to see how they are written, and refer to the Wixel documentation. The Wixel’s software I2C library is documented here:
