Project 7.5—Complex SPI Bus Project
In Chapter 8, we have seen briefly how to use the SPI bus to generate various waveforms using a DAC. In this project, we will look at the operation of the SPI bus in greater detail as it is very important in the design of microcontroller-based systems. We will also develop a project to measure the temperature using an SPI-based temperature sensor. The ambient temperature will be measured and then displayed on an LCD.
The Master Synchronous Serial Port Module
The Master Synchronous Serial Port (MSSP) module is a serial interface module on PIC18F series of microcontrollers, used for communicating with other serial devices such as EEPROMs, display drivers, A/D converters, D/A converters, and SD cards. PIC18F45K22 ...
