Hello everyone relative noob here. I'm currently trying to use the Adafruit ADS1015 library with a ads1114. I had the single ended read working a few days ago however its no longer working and readADC_SingleEnded locks the loop(). I'm actually using a msp430g2553 with energia, but that doesnt explain why it worked before and no longer does. Has this ever happened to anyone else before? I also posted this on Arduino forums to see if they knew anything about why this is happening.

Here is my code.

#include <Wire.h>
#include <Adafruit_ADS1015.h>

//Adafruit_ADS1115 ads;  /* Use this for the 16-bit version */
float voltage = 0.0;
void setup(void) 
  Serial.println("Getting single-ended readings from AIN0..3");
  Serial.println("ADC Range: +/- 6.144V (1 bit = 3mV/ADS1015, 0.1875mV/ADS1115)");
  // The ADC input range (or gain) can be changed via the following
  // functions, but be careful never to exceed VDD +0.3V max, or to
  // exceed the upper and lower limits if you adjust the input range!
  // Setting these values incorrectly may destroy your ADC!
  //                                                                ADS1015  ADS1115
  //                                                                -------  -------
  // ads.setGain(GAIN_TWOTHIRDS);  // 2/3x gain +/- 6.144V  1 bit = 3mV      0.1875mV (default)
  // ads.setGain(GAIN_ONE);        // 1x gain   +/- 4.096V  1 bit = 2mV      0.125mV
  // ads.setGain(GAIN_TWO);        // 2x gain   +/- 2.048V  1 bit = 1mV      0.0625mV
  // ads.setGain(GAIN_FOUR);       // 4x gain   +/- 1.024V  1 bit = 0.5mV    0.03125mV
  // ads.setGain(GAIN_EIGHT);      // 8x gain   +/- 0.512V  1 bit = 0.25mV   0.015625mV
  // ads.setGain(GAIN_SIXTEEN);    // 16x gain  +/- 0.256V  1 bit = 0.125mV  0.0078125mV

void loop(void) 
  int16_t adc0;
//  adc1, adc2, adc3;
  Serial.print("AIN0: "); Serial.println(adc0);
  adc0 = readADC_SingleEnded(0);
  voltage = (adc0 * 0.1875)/1000;
  Serial.print("AIN0: "); Serial.println(adc0);
  Serial.print("\tVoltage: ");
  Serial.println(voltage, 7);  
  Serial.println(" ");
   uint8_t   m_i2cAddress=0x48;
   uint8_t   m_conversionDelay=8;
   uint8_t   m_bitShift=0;
   adsGain_t m_gain;

int16_t readADC_SingleEnded(uint8_t channel) {
  // Start with default values
  uint16_t config = ADS1015_REG_CONFIG_CQUE_NONE    | // Disable the comparator (default val)
                    ADS1015_REG_CONFIG_CLAT_NONLAT  | // Non-latching (default val)
                    ADS1015_REG_CONFIG_CPOL_ACTVLOW | // Alert/Rdy active low   (default val)
                    ADS1015_REG_CONFIG_CMODE_TRAD   | // Traditional comparator (default val)
                    ADS1015_REG_CONFIG_DR_1600SPS   | // 1600 samples per second (default)
  // Set PGA/voltage range
  config |= m_gain;
 Serial.println("Config is set ");
  // Set single-ended input channel
  switch (channel)
    case (0):
      config |= ADS1015_REG_CONFIG_MUX_SINGLE_0;
    case (1):
      config |= ADS1015_REG_CONFIG_MUX_SINGLE_1;
    case (2):
      config |= ADS1015_REG_CONFIG_MUX_SINGLE_2;
    case (3):
      config |= ADS1015_REG_CONFIG_MUX_SINGLE_3;

  // Set 'start single-conversion' bit
  config |= 0x8000;
 Serial.println("Single conversion bit set");
  // Write config register to the ADC
  writeRegister(m_i2cAddress, ADS1015_REG_POINTER_CONFIG, config);
 Serial.println("register has been written");
  // Wait for the conversion to complete
 Serial.println("conversion delay is over");
  // Read the conversion results
  // Shift 12-bit results right 4 bits for the ADS1015
   Serial.println("Returning the registers read");
  return readRegister(m_i2cAddress, 0x00) >> m_bitShift;  

 byte  test;

static void writeRegister(uint8_t i2cAddress, uint8_t reg, uint16_t value) {
     Serial.println("Beginning i2c transmission");
     Serial.println("Writing to register");
     Serial.println("Writting 8 bit shift");
     Serial.println("writing end value");
  Wire.write((uint8_t)(value & 0xFF));
     Serial.println("End of transmission");
  test = Wire.endTransmission(true);

int16_t readRegister(uint8_t i2cAddress, uint8_t reg) {
     Serial.println("Reading from register");
     Serial.println("Returning the registers read");
     Serial.println("requesting from i2c the registers read");
  Wire.requestFrom(i2cAddress, (uint8_t)2);
  return ((Wire.read() << 8) | Wire.read());  


So i figured out it has something to do with register writing   Wire.endTransmission(); within the writeRegister call of the ADS1115 library, im not sure why.

Does anyone know how to solve the Wire.endTransmission() issue? I can't use the I2C library that was written for Arduinos. I also used this same chip with an Arduino mega and it ran through the Wire flawlessly. Any help would be super helpful as I'm quite stuck and I really want to get this working since it worked the first time. Is there any reason why it may be locked up like I never ended the I2C originally when I first ran it?


Trying to use this I2C Scanner to get something but alas still no response

// I2C scanner for M430G2553
// Added  Wire.write(1);  for sketch to work.
// Grant Forest May 2014
#include "Wire.h"
uint8_t error, address;
void setup () {
    Serial.println("G'Day MyI2C_ScannerV1");
void loop () {
  Serial.print(" Scanning...");
  for(address = 1; address < 127; address++ )
    Wire.write(1);  ///////////////////////////////////// sketch works ok when this line added
    Serial.write("Write complete");
    error = Wire.endTransmission();
    if (error==0) {
      Serial.print("Found Address 0x");
      if (address<15) Serial.print('0');
      Serial.print(", ");
      Serial.println("No address found at adress");
