Hi all,

I just got a new chip MPU6050. The datasheet as the link below.

I am a newbie in electronic world, couldn't follow the instructions described in the datasheet.

so...does anyone have a driver for this?  

or anyone can show me how to trigger the this device(detailed instructions will appreciated)?


Thanks for your help!







Question on Ultrasonic Ranging Module HC-SR04

02 March 2013 - 05:59 PM

Hi all,

I would like to write my own class/driver for this module HC-SR04, datasheet link as below.


Although I know there is someone already posted some working code(link below) for this module, but I still very curious about on how to write it.



In the datasheet, it says "You only need to supply a short 10uS pulse to the trigger input to start the ranging".

Now, my question is how to translate this sentence into C# code?

It looks to me that I will need to use PWM object to send a message to this module so it can be triggered.

PWM pwm = new PWM(PWMChannels.PWM_PIN_D5, ??, ??, PWM.ScaleFactor.Microseconds, false);


The missing parameters above are Period and Duration.

How do I set it so it will gernerate a 10us pulse to trigger the module??  Am I on the right track??


I am a newbie on electronics. Would appreciate if you can explain in the way I can understand.


By the way, I am using Netduino Plus 2 with .Net MF v4.2.


Thank you in advanced.
