Total Phase Aardvark library

Project description

The Total Phase Aardvark is an USB I2C/SPI host adapter.

Rationale

The manufacturer already provides an python binding. So why a new one? This is correct, but the python binding you can find in the aardvark-linux-api package is very C oriented. Eg. you need to pass arrays as method parameters, which are then modified by the binding. Instead, this binding tries to be more pythonic.

Features

  • simple interface
  • CLI tool for easy testing
  • I2C and SPI support
  • support for control signals like target power and internal I2C pullups
  • rudimental I2C slave support

(Still) Missing Features

  • more documentation (please bear with me)
  • GPIO support
  • I2C monitor support

Documentation

You can find the most up to date documentation at: http://pyaardvark.rtfd.org

Requirements

You need an either a x86 or an amd64 machine. This is because the binding uses a binary-only module supplied by the manufacturer, Total Phase. Linux and Windows is supported.

Contributing

Contributions are always welcome. You may send patches directly (eg. git send-email), do a github pull request or just file an issue.

If you are doing code changes or additions please:

  • respect the coding style (eg. PEP8),
  • provide well-formed commit message (see this blog post.)
  • add a Signed-off-by line (eg. git commit -s)
