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 using SPI host adapters from Total Phase and National Instruments®.
Instrument Control Toolbox supports the SPI interface hardware shown below.
|Manufacturer||Model||Minimum Toolbox Version|
|Total Phase||Aardvark TP240141||R2013b (version 3.4)|
|National Instruments||NI-USB-8451||R2014b (version 3.6)|
|National Instruments||NI-USB-8452||R2014b (version 3.6)|
For Total Phase Aardvark, support is available on 64-bit Microsoft® Windows®, 64-bit Mac OS X, and Linux®.
For National Instruments, support is available on 64-bit Microsoft Windows only.
