Need help for interfacing multiple Grove Sensors on Rpi

Post by chinmaygopal.voolapalli » Thu Nov 07, 2019 10:47 pm

Hello All,
I am trying to connect two(and possibly more) Grove 6-Axis Accelerometer and Gyroscope (v1.0 based on the LSM6DS3 chip) via the Grove Pi +(v3.0 01/11/2016) on a Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+. However, this is creating an issue, since the sensors share the same I2C address. After scouring through the net the only feasible solution was to use an I2C multiplexer. But, it seems that Seeed does not have any such product. There was also another solution which requires some hardware manipulations (working with the SDO/SA0 pin). But this is insufficient as I am planning to scale my system to have atleast 6 such Grove accelerometer sensors.
I have invested a lot of time and effort in acquiring various Grove related hardware in hopes of building my system. Can anyone please provide me with any alternative solution or a Grove based I2C multiplexer product?

Regards
Chinmay
