I'm working on getting an STM32F411 NUCLEO board to communicate with an MPU6050 IMU breakout board, but I've run into an early snag, in that I can't find the list of registers needed to request data from the MPU6050 in the provided datasheet. I've poked around elsewhere and found a few registers for requesting acceleration and gyro data, but so far there isn't anything I can find anything within official materials. Heck, the actual address is pretty hard to find, only provided as the 7-bit ones and zeroes, rather than as a hex-number, specified for 7 bits.

I'm doing this mainly as practice for writing STM32 code for various chips, so I'd rather not just look up someone else's existing code if I can avoid it.

  • \$\begingroup\$ The datasheet you linked to refers to Register Map and Register Description document. Have you tried to search it or looked at manufacturer website, or even Adafruit website? \$\endgroup\$

  • \$\begingroup\$ @Justme I did some poking around and found it, yeah. I feel pretty silly now. I at least know which registers I'm supposed to write to now. I was expecting more demands in terms in initialization and such, but the MPU seems to handle more of that by itself. I guess I'm just used to chips with less... hand-holding? Not sure that's the right term here. \$\endgroup\$
