I2C Adafruit Display with ESP8266-EVB and Arduino IDE
« on: November 03, 2017, 06:47:04 PM »
Has anyone got this working? I tried code that worked on another ESP8266 development board, and then just tried the example code from Adafruit. I can't get it to work.

If you did, which pins did you use for power and SCD/SCL?

To answer my own question...

I just ran an I2C port scanning program on my esp8266-dev that I got from this address
https://github.com/jainrk/i2c_port_address_scanner/tree/master/i2c_port_address_scanner

Nothing detected. I guess I have a bad ESP, or perhaps I have a firmware problem.

I don't think it is hardware problem with the ESP8266-EVB, more likely either improper hardware connections, insufficient powering or improper code.

Did you try the other way around? Using our I2C examples as a basis - we have published an library with examples for ESP8266 boards and I2C temperature sensor MOD-TC-MK2. This archive:

https://www.olimex.com/Products/Modules/Sensors/MOD-TC-MK2-31855/resources/ESP8266-EVB-MOD_TC_MK2.zip

The page of the sensor is here: https://www.olimex.com/Products/Modules/Sensors/MOD-TC-MK2-31855/open-source-hardware

Okay, I'll have another look. This is code that was working for a year on an ESP-12E dev board - I wanted to move it to the ESP8266-EVB to gain access to the integrated relay and smaller form factor.

Code is here:
Code: [Select]
/* Sailboat Race Timer for Arduino
   Activates a relay for an electric horn during a stardard ISAF 5 minute start sequence.
   Also providing audio and visual alerts to users regarding upcoming flag actions

   Will operate in 6 Min, 5 Min, or 5 Min Cycle mode.

   This code is in the Public Domain, and covered by the General Public License.
