2.2 Software prerequisites[edit]

The STM32MP157C-DK2 board must be populated with software to be able to customize it to support IKS01A2 expansion board. To know how to proceed please follow the step-by-step description starting with STM32MP157C-DK2 Let's start article.

3 Software customization to support IKS01A2 expansion board[edit]

STM32MP157C-DK2 Linux software must be configured to activate IKS01A2 board connected on top of STM32MP157C-DK2 board.

Configuration is done by modifying the STM32MP157C-DK2 Linux kernel and by managing some new device tree elements.

3.1 Kernel configuration[edit]

By default the motion MEMS drivers, present on IKS01A2 expansion board, are enabled in STM32MP1 kernel configuration: hts221, pressure(lp22hb) and lsm6dsl. The device tree must be updated to declare and activate them.

To check whether associated drivers are enabled inside the kernel, follow commands given below :

Board $>  cat /proc/config.gz | gunzip | grep HTS221
CONFIG_HTS221=y
CONFIG_HTS221_I2C=y
CONFIG_HTS221_SPI=y
Board $>  cat /proc/config.gz | gunzip | grep ST_PRESS
CONFIG_IIO_ST_PRESS=m
CONFIG_IIO_ST_PRESS_I2C=m
CONFIG_IIO_ST_PRESS_SPI=m
Board $>  cat /proc/config.gz | gunzip |  grep ST_LSM6DS
CONFIG_IIO_ST_LSM6DSX=m
CONFIG_IIO_ST_LSM6DSX_I2C=m
CONFIG_IIO_ST_LSM6DSX_SPI=m
Info.png If those configurations are not enabled on your kernel configuration, please follow the indications given in Modify, rebuild and reload the Linux® kernel


3.2 Kernel device tree configuration[edit]

3.2.1 Hardware / software interface[edit]

Motion MEMS HTS221 and LSM6DSL, present on IKS01A2 expansion board are used in the use case explained in this article.
According to IKS01A2 user manual[1], both motion MEMS are controlled by I2C bus.

In schematics of IKS01A2 [2] and STM32MP157C-DK2[3] , presented below, are identified the pins which are connected together.

  • IKS01A2 schematic (Arduino connector) [2]
    • Pins 10 and 9 of CN5 are used for I2C Bus (SDA and SCL) (I2C1 and I2C2 bus instances are mixed via the jumper JP7 and JP8)
    • Pins 6 and 5 of CN9 are used to manage interruptions on LSM6DSL motion MEMS (indicated for information: not used on kernel configuration).

Warning.png I2C5 bus instance MUST be enabled on software to access to motion MEMS present on IKS01A2

3.2.2 Kernel device tree configuration[edit]

As seen in previous chapter, IKS01A2 expansion board is controlled via IC2 bus. On STM32MP157C-DK2, the associated I2C bus is I2C5.

I2C5 bus must be activated into STM32MP157C-DK2 device tree and a node for each hardware to support must be added (see entry on device tree like hts221, below, on the following device tree content).


For that, add following content into stm32mp157c-dk2.dts file:

 &i2c5 {
	pinctrl-names = "default", "sleep";
	pinctrl-0 = <&i2c5_pins_a>;
	pinctrl-1 = <&i2c5_pins_sleep_a>;
	i2c-scl-rising-time-ns = <124>;
	i2c-scl-falling-time-ns = <3>;
	/delete-property/dmas;
	/delete-property/dma-names;

	status = "okay";

	hts221@5f {
		compatible = "st,hts221";
		reg = <0x5f>;
	};
	lsm6dsl@6b {
		compatible = "st,lsm6dsl";
		reg = <0x6b>;
	};
 };

3.3 Activate the new configuration in the STM32MP157C-DK2 board[edit]

  • Add the two generated files on file system of board, more accurately in bootfs partition (/boot directory)
Board $> ls -1 /boot/stm32*dk2*

/boot/stm32mp157c-dk2-m4-examples.dtb
/boot/stm32mp157c-dk2.dtb
  • Add a new entry in extlinux.conf file, here located in /boot/mmc0_stm32mp157c-dk2_extlinux/. If no directory mmc0_<something> is available, add the new entry in /boot/extlinux/extlinux.conf.

4 Read motion MEMS via bash script[edit]

The goal of this section are to read the informations provided by Linux kernel interface and process it on a bash script.

4.1 List of sensors entry[edit]

IKS01A2 expansion board provides several MEMS like HTS221, LSM6DSL, LPS22HB.
Hardware MEMS, detected by Linux via the IIO framework, can be listed by verifying the entries on sysfs.

Board $>   grep OF_NAME /sys/bus/iio/devices/iio\:device*/uevent
/sys/bus/iio/devices/iio:device0/uevent:OF_NAME=adc
/sys/bus/iio/devices/iio:device1/uevent:OF_NAME=adc
