Detailed Description

Encapsulate a software SPI interface.

This concrete subclass of RHGenericSPI enapsulates a bit-banged software SPI interface. Caution: this software SPI interface will be much slower than hardware SPI on most platforms.


Usage varies slightly depending on what driver you are using.

For RF22, for example:

#include <RHSoftwareSPI.h>
RHSoftwareSPI spi;
RH_RF22 driver(SS, 2, spi);
RHReliableDatagram(driver, CLIENT_ADDRESS);
void setup()
spi.setPins(6, 5, 7); // Or whatever SPI pins you need

Constructor & Destructor Documentation

◆ RHSoftwareSPI()

RHSoftwareSPI::RHSoftwareSPI ( Frequency  frequency = Frequency1MHz,
BitOrder  bitOrder = BitOrderMSBFirst,
DataMode  dataMode = DataMode0 

Constructor Creates an instance of a bit-banged software SPI interface. Sets the SPI pins to the defaults of MISO = 12, MOSI = 11, SCK = 13. If you need other assigments, call setPins() before calling manager.init() or driver.init().

[in]frequencyOne of RHGenericSPI::Frequency to select the SPI bus frequency. The frequency is mapped to the closest available bus frequency on the platform. CAUTION: the achieved frequency will almost certainly be very much slower on most platforms. eg on Arduino Uno, the the clock rate is likely to be at best around 46kHz.
[in]bitOrderSelect the SPI bus bit order, one of RHGenericSPI::BitOrderMSBFirst or RHGenericSPI::BitOrderLSBFirst.
[in]dataModeSelects the SPI bus data mode. One of RHGenericSPI::DataMode

Member Function Documentation

◆ begin()

void RHSoftwareSPI::begin ( )

Initialise the SPI library.

Initialise the software SPI library Call this after configuring the SPI interface and before using it to transfer data. Initializes the SPI bus by setting SCK, MOSI, and SS to outputs, pulling SCK and MOSI low, and SS high.

Implements RHGenericSPI.

◆ end()

void RHSoftwareSPI::end ( )

Disables the SPI bus usually, in this case there is no hardware controller to disable.

Implements RHGenericSPI.

◆ setPins()

void RHSoftwareSPI::setPins ( uint8_t  miso = 12,
uint8_t  mosi = 11,
uint8_t  sck = 13 

Sets the pins used by this SoftwareSPIClass instance. The defaults are: MISO = 12, MOSI = 11, SCK = 13.

[in]misomaster in slave out pin used
[in]mosimaster out slave in pin used
[in]sckclock pin used

Sets the pins used by this SoftwareSPIClass instance.

◆ transfer()

uint8_t RHSoftwareSPI::transfer ( uint8_t  data)

Transfer a single octet to and from the SPI interface

[in]dataThe octet to send
The octet read from SPI while the data octet was sent.

Implements RHGenericSPI.
