MDBT42Q and MPU6050 accelerometer

Posted on
  • I like to measure lateral acceleration in a carrera digital slot car and send it via BLE to a rasperry Pi. So I need tiny and lightweight electronics.

    (how) can I wire a MPU6050 accelerometer to a MDBT42Q Board? I do not have a I2C1 Pin like the pico has. Is that an issue?

  • Hi!

    Yes, it's actually way easier to use than the Pico - on the nRF52 based boards like the MDBT42Q the hardware peripherals can be on any pin, so just wire it up to whatever pins are easiest! Just avoid anything with a purple tag on it in

    You can use I2C1 on any pin, or could even just use software I2C as for the relatively small amounts of reading and writing it's not going to make a great deal of difference.

    Hope that helps!

  • sounds great!
