Hi lads, I managed to do the mpu6050 DMP initialization via a PIC24F device using my own straightforward IIC routines. The excercise was based on Jeff Rowberg's MPU6050_6Axis_MotionApps20.h document and the original I2C analysis spreadsheet produced I believe by Noah Zerkin, which I had downloaded back in 2011 i think it was. Many thanks to JR and NZ for their work. I read the 16 bit quaternion data from the FIFO and divide by 16384, to obtain the normalized quaternion (float data type) from which I extract the YPR angles using arctan2() functions for yaw and roll, and an arcsin() function to obtain pitch. The three calculations (2 x arctan2 and 1 x arcsin funcs) involve around 12836 instruction cycles which with my PIC24 running at 16 MIPS take 12836 * 1/16 us = 802.25us ~ .8 ms I have a few questions: 1) Does anybody know if the DMP can output the YPR angles directly as it does with Quat data? 2) What is the significance of the three OTP (one time programmable?) flags? I am referring to the OTP_BNK_VLD bit (bit 0) in registers XG_OFFS_TC (0x00),YG_OFFS_TC (0x01), ZG_OFFS_TC (0x02). I downloaded the MPU HW Offset Registers 1.1.pdf AppNote which makes it clear how to configure your own Gyro and Accel offset values but am not sure how it all ties with the OTP flags. I left the offset registers as is and got quite good YPR angles. 3) Why 32 bit Gyro and Accel data in FIFO when the raw data is available as 16 bit values in the sensor registers? A couple of observations: a) Note that line 298: "0x00, 0x00, 0x00, 0x01, // SET INT_ENABLE at i=22, SPECIAL INSTRUCTION" in MPU6050_6Axis_MotionApps20.h contains 0x00 in the payload field when it should be 0x01. Not a big deal but can mess up your indexing if you use a single function to do the writes. Memory update 6 of 7 is actually a read and not a write. This is reflected in MPU6050_6Axis_MotionApps20.h and in the IIC analyzer file. Nevertheless in my procedure I just wrote the corresponding values as in the rest of the updates. It seems to work OK. Sorry if I posed questions that have been answered elsewhere. I have made an effort to read this and the Invensense forum. If anybody is interested I can make available my code and procedure in the "Other Platforms" section of the forum. Cheers
