SPI Interface - Manual method to Tx & Rx spi data

I have an Atmel micro connected up to the Pi using SPI, but getting some odd results receiving data back from the Atmel. It would seem there is only a transfer every other time and using fixed data in the Atmel I do not see correct data back in the Pi. I am only sending 1 byte from the Pi and fixed ...

SPI/i2c - Arch linux testing

I have read so many web sites reference using SPI, I have installed a new kenerl and I now have dev/spi0.0 and dev/spi0.1. I am using Arch Linux o/s. If I use "dmesg | grep spi" I see the bcm2835_spi transfer, write etc, which seems to suggest this is writing to the SPI ports in the bcm2835. I am us...

Pi Serial Comm's ~ does it work?

I planning to interface a microcontroller to the Pi board and it would seem the quickest & easiest way would be to use the Pi serial comm interface. Just wondering if anyone has tried it in Arch and could point me to some code examples.

Microcontroller interface - how to interface

I have developed a Atmel at90can128 board, which has I/O, CAN and some additional functionality and it would be nice to interface the Pi board to support a GUI interface. We have been talking about the best way to interface the Atmel board I2C, general GPIO, bit banging etc. The question what is the...
