aswin0 wrote:- The sensor needs 3.3V (3.6Max), the NXT sensor port supplies 4.3V. This is too much so I need to get the voltage down. I read about voltage regulators, but they need about 1.5V overhead, giving 4.8V as minimum for input. This is more than the NXT supplies. So how do I provide the sensor with some clean voltage?
- The sensor implements high speed I2C, 400 kb/s. Will it run on the NXT that only has 9600 b/s?
- Provided I have some suitable power for the NXT, can I just connect the digital pins of the NXT with those of the sensor, or do I need some extra components between the two?

Get one of these: http://www.sparkfun.com/products/8745 They're logic level shifters and work very nicely.
