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/SAMA7 processors and 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
