SPI is a serial communication bus able to address multiple devices along a main 3-wire bus with an additional 1 wire per device.
Toit exposes the peripheral through the
import gpio import serial.protocols.spi as spi main: bus := spi.Bus --miso=gpio.Pin 12 --mosi=gpio.Pin 13 --clock=gpio.Pin 14
When communicating with a device, a unique chip-select (
cs) Pin is used to signal when the chip in question is addressed. In addition, it's important to not select a device frequency that exceeds the capabilities of the device. The maximum frequency can be found in the datasheet for the selected peripheral.
In case of the Bosch BME280 sensor, the maximum frequency is 10MHz:
