This repository contains the embedded i2c driver sources for Sensirion's SPS product line.

The UART driver of the SPS is available in the embedded-uart-sps repository.

Clone this repository

git clone --recursive

Repository content

  • embedded-common submodule repository for common HAL
  • sps30-i2c SPS30 i2c driver

Hardware setup

  • Make sure that the SPS30's Pin 4 ("Interface select") is connected to GND, on power-up of the sensor, otherwise the sensor works in UART instead of i2c mode. Note that the interface-select configuration is read on every start of the sensor including after a soft-reset.

  • The i2c wires need appropriate pull-up resistors if they're not included or enabled in your microprocessor.

Collecting resources

make release

This will create a release folder with the necessary driver files in it, including a Makefile. That way, you have just ONE folder with all the sources ready to build your driver for your platform.

Files to adjust (from embedded-common)

You only need to touch the following files:

  • sensirion_arch_config.h architecture specifics, you need to specify the integer sizes

and depending on your i2c implementation one of the following:

  • sensirion_hw_i2c_implementation.c (functions for hardware i2c communication if your platform supports that)
  • sensirion_sw_i2c_implementation.c (functions for software i2c communication via GPIOs)

Building the driver

  1. Step into your desired directory (e.g.: release/sps30-i2c)
  2. Adjust sensirion_arch_config.h if the <stdint.h> header is not available
  3. Implement necessary functions in *_implementation.c
  4. make

Please check the embedded-common repository for further information and sample implementations.
