 You may end up with heterogeneous voltage level devices and if you have many devices the correct way to work around this problem is by using bidirectional I2C voltage level shifters like the [[ http://​www.ti.com/​lit/​ds/​symlink/​pca9306.pdf |PCA9306]], but if you only have a few devices all grouped up in a neat PCB like the 10DOF IMU unit you might want to give a simpler system a try. You may end up with heterogeneous voltage level devices and if you have many devices the correct way to work around this problem is by using bidirectional I2C voltage level shifters like the [[ http://​www.ti.com/​lit/​ds/​symlink/​pca9306.pdf |PCA9306]], but if you only have a few devices all grouped up in a neat PCB like the 10DOF IMU unit you might want to give a simpler system a try.
-This is how I connected my 5v IMU pcb to a 3.3v I2C bus on my RaspberryPI:​ I took as educated guess that 4.4v (5v with a 4148 diode in series) would still be a tolerable power supply voltage for the whole IMU pcb, this would most likely allow all the I2C devices on the IMU pcb to recognize a minimum of 3.08v (4.4 * 0.7) as the lowest reliable logic level 1 tension allowing it to inter-operate with the PI's 3.3v logig levels. I was not able to find if the PI has internal pullups on the I2C bus or if they have to be externally placed so in doubt I put in 10k pullups between the 4.4v power line and the 2 data lines. I was the able to correctly detect the sensors on the IMU pcb.   +This is how I connected my 5v IMU pcb to a 3.3v I2C bus on my RaspberryPI:​ I took as educated guess that 4.4v (5v with a 4148 diode in series) would still be a tolerable power supply voltage for the whole IMU pcb, this would most likely allow all the I2C devices on the IMU pcb to recognize a minimum of 3.08v (4.4 * 0.7) as the lowest reliable logic level 1 tension allowing it to inter-operate with the PI's 3.3v logic levels.
