With Grove Base Hat and OLED I2C Board for NVIDIA Jetson Nano

5 min read

Grove Shield for Jetson Nano is an expansion board for Jetson Nano, designed by Seeed Studio, for the orderliness of your connected sensors when you develop projects with Pi. It maintains 24-Pin GPIO and provides 15 additional Grove ports based on the MM32 chip, along with other interfaces, giving you a great and quick development experience.

Feature

  • Grove & GPIO Pi Hat for Raspberry Pi Series: Break out all the pins and power of the Raspberry Pi to provide 15 multi-function. Grove ports and compatible 24-Pin GPIO based on a 12-bit ADC MM32 chip
  • Rich Peripherals for Grove: Provide 15 Grove ports including 3× I2C, 1× UART, 6× Digital, and 4× Analog, which also contains 1x PWM port, and the SWD Debug interface.
  • Plug and Play: Benefit from convenient Grove connectors that supports more than 60 Grove modules

Thanks to Seeed Studio for sponsoring Grove Base Hat and OLED I2C board for this effort.

Getting Started

Step 1. Plug the Grove Base Hat into Jetson Nano

Step 2. Connect OLED

Step 3. One-click installation

One-click installation, quick start, what ever you call, with the single command below, we can install/update all dependencies and latest grove.py.

curl -sL https://github.com/Seeed-Studio/grove.py/raw/master/install.sh | sudo bash -s -

if everything goes well, you will see the following notice.

...
...
#######################################################
  Lastest Grove.py from github install complete   !!!!!
#######################################################

If you use the I2C tool to scan the I2C address of the grove module, you may find two or more address. 0x04 is the adrress of the Grove Base Hat for Raspberry Pi.

Step 4. Using i2cdetect command

 i2cdetect -r -y 1
     0  1  2  3  4  5  6  7  8  9  a  b  c  d  e  f
00:          -- -- -- -- -- 08 -- -- -- -- -- -- -- 
10: -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- 
20: -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- 
30: -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- 3c -- -- -- 
40: -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- 
50: -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- 
60: -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- 
70: -- -- -- -- -- -- 76 --                  

This is the output of the i2cdetect command, which is used to scan for I2C (Inter-Integrated Circuit) devices connected to a system. The command lists the I2C device addresses found on bus 1 (-y 1).

The first row represents the I2C addresses in hexadecimal form (0x00 to 0x7F). The following rows indicate the presence of an I2C device at the corresponding address by showing a two-digit hexadecimal number. An empty cell (–) means that there is no device at the corresponding address.

Based on the output, there are two I2C devices detected at addresses 0x3c and 0x76. The address 0x3c might correspond to a display controller or a sensor, while the address 0x76 might correspond to a barometer or a temperature sensor.

It is important to note that this output only indicates the presence of the I2C devices and not their functionality. Further testing and analysis are required to determine if the devices are working correctly.

Step 5. Running the Python Script

git clone https://github.com/Seeed-Studio/grove.py
cd grove.py/grove
