    Hi,
    I'd like to know the IIC chip of AbsoluteIMU and PS2 controller.
    Is there any reference?


    Thanks

    They both use Microchip processor with software I2C implementation.
    Different models have different processor. Run device explorer with device attached,
    in the device info, you will see the processor name.

    Thanks
    However, when I use the ev3 explorer, I only get the device name and firmware version. There's no more.
    Do I make any mistake?

    You are right, the other fields are printed in the NXT version of the explorer.
    If you want to access, the processor name is at address 0x2C in the device table (8 bytes long)
    modify the program to read that location.
