Error Working with ADS1015 and Raspbian

by mattrichardson on Sun Dec 02, 2012 2:52 pm

Hello,

I'm trying to get the ADS1015 breakout working with Raspbian. I have i2c working, and it can detect the ADS1015:

Code: Select all | TOGGLE FULL SIZE
pi@raspberrypi ~/analog/Adafruit-Raspberry-Pi-Python-Code/Adafruit_ADS1x15 $ sudo i2cdetect -y 1
     0  1  2  3  4  5  6  7  8  9  a  b  c  d  e  f
00:          -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- --
10: -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- --
20: -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- --
30: -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- --
40: -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- 48 -- -- -- -- -- -- --
50: -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- --
60: -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- --
70: -- -- -- -- -- -- -- --                         


But when I try to run the example code, I get this error:

Code: Select all | TOGGLE FULL SIZE
pi@raspberrypi ~/analog/Adafruit-Raspberry-Pi-Python-Code/Adafruit_ADS1x15 $ sudo python ads1015_example.py
Error accessing 0x48: Check your I2C address
Error accessing 09x48: Check your I2C address
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "ads1015_example.py", line 13, in <module>
    result = adc.readADCSingleEnded(0)
  File "/home/pi/analog/Adafruit-Raspberry-Pi-Python-Code/Adafruit_ADS1x15/Adafruit_ADS1x15.py", line 135, in readADCSingleEnded
    return ( ((result[0] << 8) | (result[1] & 0xFF)) >> 4 )
TypeError: 'int' object has no attribute '__getitem__'


I have been looking through the code in the Adafruit I2C base class to determine how to fix the problem, but I'm not 100% sure how to trace it. Does anyone have any leads?

Thanks,
Matt
