An Aardvark device could have potentially been opened, enabled as a slave, and configured to send asynchronous responses to a third-party master. The status code allows the user to discover specific events on the I 2 C bus that would otherwise be transparent given only the number of bytes transacted. Attempting to use a feature that is not supported will result in an error. Total Phase can be found on the Internet at http: The master initiates the communication.

If the timeout value is negative, the function will block indefinitely until data arrives. If the code is not valid, it returns a NULL string.

The next time the line is an output and activated for GPIO, the output value previously set will automatically take effect. If you flip your Aardvark adapter over figure 6 such that the text on the serial number label is in the proper upright position, the pin order is as shown in the following diagram.

Aardvark I2C/SPI Host Adapter Quick Start Guide – Total Phase

The power-on default bitrate is kHz. The other option is to more regularly poll the slave to obtain any pending asynchronous messages. If you don’t have an account, you will be prompted to create an account before your download commences. This can be inefficient in simple configurations and a direct-link interface such as SPI might be preferred.

The Aardvark adapter is assigned a port on a sequential basis.

The open function deactivates slave functionality to ensure that the new application has access to an Aardvark device that is in a known-state. If the topmost bit of addr is set, the slave will respond to a general call transmission by an I 2 C master.

Minimum monthly payments are required. If the application design requires multi-threaded use of the Aardvark functionality, each Aardvark API call can be wrapped with a thread-safe locking mechanism before and after invocation.

There can be extra overhead introduced by the operating system between calls to the Aardvark API. The handle must be standard file descriptor. If the timeout expires, this function will return the current state of the GPIO lines. SPI is a very simple communication protocol.

A similar problem can happen when one attempts to disable the very slave that is saturating the incoming receive buffer! We also have a Quick Start Guide to help you get started.


Where appropriate, compare the language binding versions e. One can employ the following technique to guarantee that all pending asynchronous data have been captured during each service cycle: The AardvarkVersion structure describes the various version dependencies of Aardvark components. Any modifications are at the user’s own risk.

Three signals are shared by all devices on the SPI bus: The AardvarkExt structure is described below: Free the Aardvark I 2 C subsystem from a held bus condition e.

1 General Overview

The topmost bits are ignored. This feature aardvak the Aardvark adapter, following a transaction as a master SPI device, to be then reconnected to another SPI environment as a slave.

A call to any Aardvark API function that communicates with the host synchronously will also fetch any pending asynchronous messages, buffering them for subsequent calls to the asynchronous slave receive functions. Recall that, like all other Aardvark functions, this function is not thread-safe. For example, in the C bindings one can modify the DLL search and loading behavior to conform to a specific paradigm.
