The Serial Peripheral Interface - SPI - allows digital devices to communicate using only 4 wires, additional devices can be added to the same 'bus' with the addition of only a single selection wire for each device. There are many integrated circuits and other devices that can be controlled via SPI, this entry details a simple experiment with a MCP3201 12-bit Analogue to Digital Converter. Background Each end of a SPI connection is acting in one of two roles - Master or Slave ...
I've been thinking of getting a "cheap" computer based Logic Analyzer for some time ...
This is a follow on to "Using SPI on an AVR (1)" and illustrates using SPI to communicate with a real time clock chip, it also illustrates use of external interrupts to initiate code on the microcontroller. Maxim DS1305 Real Time Clock The DS1305 Serial Alarm Real-Time Clock is an 18 pin DIP clock chip ...
I've been asked for the code used to read the MAX6675 Thermocouple-to-Digital Converter used to measure the temperature in my ongoing SMD Reflow Oven project ...
This is a follow up to Using SPI on an AVR (1) and Using SPI on an AVR (2) articles which illustrated using an AVR Microcontroller to communicate with some simple SPI Slave devices. This entry shows two AVR Micro controllers communicating with each other through SPI - one acting as Master and one as Slave ...
