Hey,
I am trying to Interface Cubesatkit PIC with Arduino UNO. I am using an I2C interface but could not make it. It would be great if anyone could help me.

A lot more info is needed -- which CSK (which PPM?), etc.

Hey,
Thanks for the reply. We are using Pluggable Processor Module D1 (PPM D1) with Microchip® PIC24FJ256GA110---710-00527. Version is Rev A.

Microchip supplies a wealth of libraries, including ones to use I2C. They are all present in a full install for the CubeSat Kit. I can guarantee you that it will be very difficult to get I2C up and running unless you have some sort of I2C protocol analyzer ... we sell the Total Phase Beagle one, that interfaces directly to a CubeSat Kit via the CSK Breakout Module.

In terms of connecting an I2C periperal to the CSK, you do it over SCL_SYS and SDA_SYS, and you will have to decide on the pull-up voltage (either on the CSK Dev Board or on the Arduino).

Hey Andrew, Thanks for the reply. Is there any possible way to work without an I2C Protocol Analyzer.

No.

Some scopes have this capability built-in.

The Total Phase Beagle can do it.

The Saleae Logic Analyzer can do it . http://www.saleae.com/home/

I have all three, and find myself using the Total Phase Beagle the most often..

Thanks for the reply but we don't have sufficient resources to work with. If there is any other possibility in solving I2C issue then please let me know.

Thank you

Hey,
I am trying to Interface Cubesatkit PIC with Arduino UNO. I am using an I2C interface but could not make it.
Can i use the SPI or UART for communication. Is it posible to communicate without I2C protocol Analyzer when we use SPI.
Is there any other means for communication. If so please help me.
