I'm new with Arduino hardware, and I've recently acquired an array of equipment to help me learn. One of the products in my kit is a FLORA accelerometer/compass, which I'm hoping to connect to an Arduino UNO. The accelerometer has SDA and SCL ports, which line up with FLORA's SDA and SCL. According to the FLORA pinout diagram http://learn.adafruit.com/getting-started-with-flora/flora-pinout-diagram
, SDA and SCL map to Arduino pins 2 and 3 respectively.
Can I simply connect the FLORA accelerometer SDA and SCL to the Arduino UNO's pins 2 and 3, and make use of the Adafruit LSM303 library https://github.com/adafruit/Adafruit_LSM303
as is, or do I need to make some modifications to the software to account for the slight difference? If so, would that change be in the library itself, Wire.h or the Arduino IDE?
I suppose it would also be a good idea to ask, am I putting the FLORA accelerometer at any risk by experimenting? I don't plan to make any connection to the 5V output, but other than that, could a thoughtless circuit damage anything?
