SPI Interface Support from Instrument Control Toolbox

Communicate with chips, circuit boards and sensors using MATLAB.

Total Phase Aardvark I2C/SPI Adapter

MATLAB® supports SPI interface communication through Instrument Control Toolbox™. SPI (Serial Peripheral Interface) is a chip-to-chip interface that supports four- wire duplex communications. Instrument Control Toolbox SPI interface support lets you open connections with individual devices, such as EEPROM or on-board SPI sensors, on the SPI bus. You can then read and write data over the connections.

When characterizing a sensor or verifying the performance of a device or subsystem, you can configure chip settings using SPI while measuring outputs of the board or device with other test and measurement equipment. SPI interface support is available on Windows® (32- and 64-bit), Mac (64-bit) and Linux platforms using the Aardvark USB to SPI host adapter from Total Phase.
