Types

type Configuration

type Configuration struct {
	PowerMode  uint8
	SystemMode uint8
	DataRate   uint8
}

Configuration for LIS2MDL device.

type Device

type Device struct {
	Address    uint8
	PowerMode  uint8
	SystemMode uint8
	DataRate   uint8
	// contains filtered or unexported fields
}

Device wraps an I2C connection to a LIS2MDL device.

func New

func New(bus drivers.I2C) Device

New creates a new LIS2MDL connection. The I2C bus must already be configured.

This function only creates the Device object, it does not touch the device.

func (*Device) Configure

func (d *Device) Configure(cfg Configuration)

Configure sets up the LIS2MDL device for communication.

func (*Device) Connected

func (d *Device) Connected() bool

Connected returns whether LIS2MDL sensor has been found.

func (*Device) ReadCompass

func (d *Device) ReadCompass() (h int32)

ReadCompass reads the current compass heading from the device and returns it in degrees. When the z axis is pointing straight to Earth and the y axis is pointing to North, the heading would be zero.

However, the heading may be off due to electronic compasses would be effected by strong magnetic fields and require constant calibration.

func (*Device) ReadMagneticField

func (d *Device) ReadMagneticField() (x int32, y int32, z int32)

ReadMagneticField reads the current magnetic field from the device and returns it in mG (milligauss). 1 mG = 0.1 µT (microtesla).
