  • ± 1 LSB max DNL
  • ± 1 LSB max INL
  • 8 input channels
  • Analog inputs programmable as single-ended or pseudo-differential pairs
  • On-chip sample and hold
  • SPI serial interface (modes 0,0 and 1,1)
  • Single supply operation: 2.7V - 5.5V
  • 200 ksps max. sampling rate at VDD=5V
  • 75 ksps max. sampling rate at VDD=2.7V
  • Low power CMOS technology
  • 5 nA typical standby current, 2 µA max.
  • 500 µA max. active current at 5V
  • Industrial temp range: -40°C to +85°C

Applications

  • Sensor Interface
  • Process Control
  • Data Acquisition
  • Battery Operated Systems

How-To

The following sample assumes that you're running the latest official Raspbian distribution, that you're logged in as root and that you haven't yet customized Raspbian to use SPI from a Python script. By default, the kernel module managing SPI communications is not loaded on Raspbian, so let's ensure that the 'spidev' device is available.

[email protected]:/# lsmod
Module                  Size  Used by  
snd_bcm2835            12808  0  
snd_pcm                74834  1 snd_bcm2835  
snd_seq                52536  0  
snd_timer              19698  2 snd_seq,snd_pcm  
snd_seq_device          6300  1 snd_seq  
snd                    52489  5 snd_seq_device,snd_timer,snd_seq,snd_pcm,snd_bcm2835  
snd_page_alloc          4951  1 snd_pcm  

If 'spidev' device is not listed, we need to remove it from the kernel module 'blacklist' so that it's automatically loaded on the next boot:

[email protected]:/# nano /etc/modprobe.d/raspi-blacklist.conf  

Put a hash character in front of the 'blacklist spi-bcm2708' statement and save the file:

#blacklist spi-bcm2708  

then, manually load the SPI device:

[email protected]:/# modprobe spidev  

The command should just complete without returning an error. Validate the list of modules:

[email protected]:/# lsmod  
Module                  Size  Used by  
spi_bcm2708             4401  0  
spidev                  5136  0  
snd_bcm2835            12808  0  
snd_pcm                74834  1 snd_bcm2835  
snd_seq                52536  0  
snd_timer              19698  2 snd_seq,snd_pcm  
snd_seq_device          6300  1 snd_seq  
snd                    52489  5 snd_seq_device,snd_timer,snd_seq,snd_pcm,snd_bcm2835  
snd_page_alloc          4951  1 snd_pcm  

The 'spidev' device should now be available.

Next, install the 'git' package. It will be needed to install other packages from Github.

apt-get install git-core  

Install the 'python-dev' package. It will be needed to compile the 'py-spidev' package.

apt-get install python-dev  

Download and compile the 'py-spidev' package.

[email protected]:/# cd /home  
[email protected]:/home# git clone git://github.com/doceme/py-spidev  
[email protected]:/home# cd py-spidev/  
[email protected]:/home# python setup.py install  

At this point, SPI is available from Python 2.7. Assuming that you have wired the MCP3008 to the Raspberry Pi's SPI bus using CE0 as the 'chip select' pin, you can read all eight analog inputs using the following Python script.

[email protected]:/home# nano adc.py  

Paste the script below in the editor and save it.

import spidev  
import time    
spi = spidev.SpiDev()  
spi.open(0,0)    

# read SPI data from MCP3008 chip, 8 possible adc's (0 thru 7)  
def readadc(adcnum):
          if ((adcnum > 7) or (adcnum < 0)):
                  return -1
          r = spi.xfer2([1,(8+adcnum)<<4,0])
          adcout = ((r[1]&3) << 8) + r[2]
          return adcout

while True:
          for adcInput in range(0,8):
                  print "ADC(", adcInput,")=", readadc(adcInput)
          time.sleep(1)  

To execute the script

[email protected]:/home# python adc.py  

Sample output using a 10K Ohm trimpot connected to the ADC's pin 3 and all other pins pulled down to ground using a 10k resistor.

ADC( 0 )= 0  
ADC( 1 )= 0  
ADC( 2 )= 0  
ADC( 3 )= 507  
ADC( 4 )= 0  
ADC( 5 )= 0  
ADC( 6 )= 0  
ADC( 7 )= 0  

Credits go to Jeremy for his work on the 'py-spidev' Python module which makes working with the MCP3008 straight forward. Alternatively, checkout wiringPi's SPI functions if you prefer using a 'C' API.

Pi Supply Gert VGA 666 Hardware VGA for Raspberry Pi (Gert VGA)

Description:

The  Gert VGA 666 (6 bits per colour channel, hence 666) is a  breakout/add-on board for the Raspberry Pi Model B+ (will not work with  Model A/B as the additional GPIO pins on the Model B+ are required). It  is an open source hardware design recently released publicly by Gert van  Loo who was one of the hardware engineers that was instrumental in the  initial design of the original Raspberry Pi (also one of the chip  architects on the BCM2835 chip at the heart of the Raspberry Pi) and  someone that many of you may have spoken to at Raspberry Jams or on the  Raspberry Pi forums. It is a neat and very useful solution for using a  VGA screen/monitor with your Raspberry Pi and is far cheaper than an  HDMI to VGA adapter or similar. The VGA connection is driven natively in  hardware over the GPIO pins (using a parallel interface) and uses  around the same CPU load as the HDMI connection on board. It is capable  of displaying 1080p60 VGA video with no CPU load. It is also possible to  drive this interface at the same time as the HDMI connection, so a dual  screen setup is also possible. This add-on was not possible on the  Model A and B pis, because not all of the required pins had been brought  out to the GPIO header. Yet another awesome upgrade that the Model B+ has allowed for!

Please note: this add-on on board uses all but 6 of the GPIO pins on the Model B+ Raspberry Pi so it may not be possible to use  other add on boards at the same time as the VGA adapter. Why a kit? We love electronics kits for a multitude of reasons - they are fun to  put together, you get a sense of achievement at the end of it, they are  great for learning about soldering and electronics and many many more  reasons... At Pi Supply we are quite keen on the whole education and fun  aspect of the Raspberry Pi and computing and electronics in general, so  we feel that a kit is much more worthwhile to all of our backers.  However, you don't need to be a soldering god or an electronics pro to  put our kits together - Gert has made this simple enough even for  absolute beginners to put together. The images in this project show  surface mount resistors, however, for the purposes of the kit we will be  supplying all through hole components. There was also a concern about  EMC (electromagnetic compatibility) regulations which could cause a  problem if made as a fully assembled board. This regulation does not  cover home made electronics and so a kit makes more sense for this  reason as well.

Specifications:

  • Uses all but 6 of the  GPIO pins on the Model B+ Raspberry Pi
  • 6 bits per colour channel, hence 666
  • Will not work with Raspberry Pi 1 Model A/B
  • Open source hardware design
  • BCM2835 chip

Note: this product requires two 14500 batteries to work, which are NOT included and should be purchased separately. Even though the battery holder fits the normal AA batteries DO NOT USE THEM!  A 14500 lithium cell is identical in shape and size to a standard AA battery. But that is where the similarities end. AA supplies 1.5V each where 14500 supply 3.7V each.

Nanomesher - Hackable Raspberry Pi Switch w/ Remote Control (Nanomesher power switch)

This neat little board from Nanomesher adds a programmable power switch to your Raspberry Pi A+/B+/2/3/Zero/Zero W, which can be controlled by a single button or IR remote!

This is the Hackable Raspberry Pi Power switch which was successfully funded on Kickstarter in April 2017.

The Hackable Raspberry Pi Switch features an on board and removable Attiny85 Arduino Development MCU, which means the switch is both Smart and Hackable!

The Pi Switch Features

  • Single button on/off or Infrared (IR) remote operation (Remote Included)
  • LED light to indicate power status
  • Blinks twice when Switch receives power
  • Turn On when Pi is on
  • Blinks when waiting for Pi to turn off
  • Turn Off when Pi is off
  • Use standard microUSB and USB female socket
  • Suitable for mounting on front face plate
  • Onboard Attiny85 Microprocessor can be removed and reprogrammed if needed

Package Include:

  • Hackable and Smart Pi Power Switch with removable Attiny85 microcontroller
  • 4 x Jumper cables to Pi
  • High Quality MicroUSB cable (20cm)
  • Infrared remote control

While it works out of the box. You can also reprogram it using an Attiny MCU programmer. Code and Guides are included are downloadable from here. There is a package which include both the Switch and Programmer

Being Hackable, the firmware can be modified so that the switch can be used as a development board with these functions:

  • One output to trigger relay
  • One output to LED
  • One analog input to detect voltage between 0-5v
  • One input for push button
  • One input for infrared receiver which I have the code to distinguish all the buttons in the remote included
  • One output to trigger an external digital input (pull down)

Operation Sequence

1. Press once to turn On

2. Press again to trigger shutdown of the Pi's Linus OS using the shutdown script

3.  Switch will monitor the Pi and wait for the Pi to be fully shutdown (halt state)

4. Once halt state is detected, cut the power to the Pi.
