    VL53L0X connection problems

    HWEG

      Hi,  Im jaeuk Lee from South Korea.

      I try to connected VL53L0X (data sheet : http://www.st.com/content/ccc/resource/technical/document/datasheet/group3/b2/1e/33/77/c6/92/47/6b/DM00279086/files/DM00…)

      And I read some source from GitHub (VL53L0X/VL53L0Xtest.py at master · popunder/VL53L0X · GitHub , VL53L0X/vl53l0x.py at master · victorchinn/VL53L0X · GitHub , vl53l0x-arduino/VL53L0X.h at master · pololu/vl53l0x-arduino · GitHub  )

      but I confused about VL53L0X register map ST company didn't published a register map. So their are my code and compile screen shot.

          Hello Jaeuk,
           
          Thank you for your interest in the Intel® Edison Breakout Board.
           
          I have to inform you that code debugging is out of the scope of our technical support team.
           
          Although, I may be able to provide some insight. What I understand from your post is that you can’t get any output from register 0x14. I checked the links you provided (specifically the one showing VL53L0Xtest.py) and saw that accessing register 0x14 has to be done through the bus.read_i2c_block_data() function.
           
          If you have any other update or question related to the Edison module itself, don’t hesitate to contact us.
           
          Have a nice day.
           
          Regards,
          Andres V.
