Hello there,
i need to read some analogic inputs with raspberry pi, so i'm using this analog to digital converter model ads1115, it uses I2C comunication. The question is that i don't how to read this through the 4DIAC-IDE can somebody help with this?


This is a reference to the converter:

Hi!

First you should get the IO board working with a C/C++ library, as 4diac-RTE is a C/C++ program

Probably take a loot at the WiringPi library and get your analog in board running with a demo program

Cheers,
Martin

i'm running this on python and everything is good. Do you think i have to create a custon FB with this codes that you had shown me?

In IEC 61499 all IO access is handled through Service Interface Function Blocks. These FBs are typically custom tailored for the specific IOs that you have. So one starting point would be to write your one specific FB.

In 4diac we started to introduce a generic set of IO FBs (i.e., IX, IB, IW, ID, Qx, QB, QW, WD) making it easier for you to implement IOs. Here you only have to implement a class called CProcessInterface. These class will then handle the device specific IO part and will be utilized by the generic FBs in a kind of strategy pattern. For your case with I2C you can have a look on I2CDev and raspberrypi sps directories for examples.

However you will need to perform certain i"C messages specific to your chip. You can have a look into the code of the adafruit library to find out how this is performed. But from a previous experience when we tried this for a steppermotor cape I noticed that the adafruit library is quite complicated. Therefore it might be easier to just read through the data sheet of your ads1115 chip [1] and find out about the messages needed for setting it up and for reading the ADC converted values.

Is there anyway to use native system libary, like stdio, when i'm creating the FB ?

As this FB you need to create is a SIFB where you only model the interface in 4diac-ide, then generate cpp code and extend this cpp code to your needs you can use all libraries you need.

Do you have any reference of how to procede with this? Or any example that i could follow?

for example, can i use this library directly on ECC algorithm so i can export it later?

You can use this also in ECCs. However this is not really straight forward. You have to write algorithms in any_text. There you can write C++ code and the code will be directly put into the generated include files. You can put your include statements in the header field of the compilerinfo of your FB. But this is a little bit cumbersome to do.

For an example that could be an interesting reference you might want to look at the process interface I wrote for the PIFace. This is in principle rather similar to what you would like todo the only difference is that piface is using the SPI and not I2C and has only digital I/Os if I rember correctly. For analog I/Os you could look into the Odriod module.

i'm thinking about compile forte with wirePI library and write and FB to use it. Do you think it could work?

Yes this will definitely work. One strength of 4diac FORTE is that it is rather easy to wrap existing C/C++ libraries in Function blocks.
