Hardware access for Microchip boards

Project description



Microchip Peripheral I/O Python Package

This package provides easy access to various hardware peripherals found on Microchip AT91/SAMA5 processors and Xplained boards running Linux. The API is clean, consistent, flexible, documented, and well tested to make navigating and exercising even the most complex hardware peripherals a trivial task.

Supported Interfaces

  • ADC - Analog-to-Digital Converter
  • DevMem - Read and Write System Memory
  • GPIO - General Purpose I/O
  • I2C - Inter-Integrated Circuit
  • SMBus - System Management Bus
  • Input - Input Subsystem (Mouse/Keyboard/Touchscreen)
  • LED - Light Emitting Diode Light Sources
  • PWM - Pulse Width Modulation
  • SPI - Serial Peripheral Interface Bus
  • Serial - RS-232
  • CPU and Board Utilities


Here’s an example of how simple it is to fire up a Python interpreter and toggle a GPIO.

>>> from mpio import GPIO
>>> gpio = GPIO(107, GPIO.OUT)
>>> gpio.set(True)
>>> gpio.set(False)


You can install from PyPi by default with:

pip install mpio
