I2C on long cable

Unread postby oleg » Fri Jun 15, 2018 3:50 pm

Hello everybody!

I was trying to connect i2c sensor to odroid xu4 on long cable - 30cm
I am using shifted shied in 5v mode. And on short cable (10cm) everything was ok but on long cable Odroid doesn't process anything.

So I disconnected my sensor and use i2c tool to check what I got

So, my question is, how can it be that even with empty wires Odroid XU4 things that something was connected

Thank you

The TSX0108E IC on the Shifter Shield caused the problem due to very weak driving capability.

When the cable is very long, we have to use a different level shifter(BS138) something like this.
