Hi!

 

I'm having an issue with IIC to Serial UART module.

 

Issue:

 

"

pi@raspberrypi:~/DFRobot_IICSerial/python/raspberrypi/examples $ python demo_tx_and_rx.py
Traceback (most recent call last):
 File "/home/pi/DFRobot_IICSerial/python/raspberrypi/examples/demo_tx_and_rx.py", line 23, in <module>
   from DFRobot_IIC_Serial import *
 File "/home/pi/DFRobot_IICSerial/python/raspberrypi/DFRobot_IIC_Serial.py", line 24, in <module>
   from serial.serialutil import SerialBase, SerialException, to_bytes, \
ImportError: cannot import name 'portNotOpenError' from 'serial.serialutil' (/usr/local/lib/python3.9/dist-packages/serial/serialutil.py)
"

 

I have tried to reinstall PySerial with no success. Any advices are welcomed :)

Hi!

 

I'm cofirming that the module works also on Rpi Zero 2W version with Dietpi distro with modifications on DFRobot_IIC_Serial.py mentioned earlier :

Great! Modify that file according to your need. In that file some of the classes are obsolute and replaced by new version of the library.

Hope you'r project give expected outcome.

Hi!

 

Raj, you are The Life Saviour! 

 

I spell checked DFRobot_IIC_Serial.py and there was miss spelling in line 25. I had took out also "writeTimeoutError", there is no reference in serialutil.py for that, I presume that is obsolete. Test script demo_tx_and_rx.py works ok now with crosswiring tx-rx from UART1 to UART2!

Hi

There is a spelling error.

Use PortNotOpenError
