Hardware access for Microchip boards
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.
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
