Grove IMU SPI connection

I would like to connect the Grove IMU through SPI. From what I understood in order to make the SPI connection work I have to disconnect the I2C enable pad and disconnect the address select pad. So this means that I have to cut in the places like in the picture, is my understanding correct?

Hi @Chiara
Yes, you are right.


I’m trying to do the same thing (using SPI) with the Grove / Seeed BME680 Unit.
It also got two pads. One to choose between I2C and SPI, and the other to change the I2C adress between 0x76 and 0x77.

I obivously cut the I2C pad and checked with a multimeter if it really is cut, and it is, but the sensor is still unrecognized when using SPI. It still does work with I2C though, strange isn’t it?

After seeing this post i additionaly cut the adress changing pad alongside the I2C pad, but it still doesn’t work.
What am I doing wrong?

Please help.
