    Ultra low power consumption 256Mb SPI memory for MCU

    Hello, I'm new to this topic, so please bear with me. I'm trying to come up with a prototype which will be writing ~70kB/sec of data using ultra low-power MCU (well, that's that idea). The amount of data is up to 256 Mb. I googled and the best I found is Macronix products, for example - this...

    Choice of ADC for raspberry pi

    Hello, I have a circuit that produces a square wave (can be varying duty cycle) with a maximum frequency of 1 KHz. I wanted to measure the signal through a ADC and feed it back to a raspberry pi to plot the data ( monitoring feature). what should be the frequency sample I need to try and...

    SPI Communication with a LIS2DE12 Accelerometer

    Hi! I am trying to establish a SPI communication with an LIS2DE12 accelerometer. First, I would like to say that I have checked phase, polarity, msbFirst and CS. I am using an EM9304 as the master of the communication, and the spi clock frequency is aproppriated. Writing or reading from the...

    SD Card and SPI Communications

    OK. I have just spent the better part of the day banging on this project and have found something that is either really irritating and incredibly frustrating or is a serious problem for oshonsoft, or I may just be an idiot and need help. This is the story... 18F4520, 8MHz internal osc. LCD...
