Hello, I have been struggling to achieve the 6.66kHz output data rate using python on a raspberry pi 4 connected via SPI. I am writing the data directly to the RAM and storing it after it has colected required number of samples. However, I can’t hit more than 3.3kHz. I believe I set the registers correctly, crunched most of the datasheet for the LSM6DSL, but I can’t figure it out. Any chance someone has a working example of 6.66kHz over SPI to Pi?
I want to explore all options, before declaring Python being slow as the culprit 🙂
Any help will be highly appreciated, thanks.

We haven’t been able to get up to 6.664KHz using python, we think it is too slow.
Using C, we were able to get up to 5.2KHz on a Raspberry Pi 3, and this was while doing other stuff in between. You might be able to get it running at 6.664Khz with C on a Pi 4 and using the optimisation flag.
BTW:An Arduino has no problem getting it to run at full speed.July 7, 2021 at 5:04 am #16818pkstrskParticipant
Hello again, I have made a few experiments, but I haven’t been able to make it work using C (not my favourite programming language :D). Any chance there are some examples available where the mentioned 5kHz sample rate was achieved that I could work with?
Thanks in advance,
