How-to: Use analog Inputs for Raspberry Pi using the MCP3008 #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi @ The Adafruit Learning System –

Teaching the Raspberry Pi how to read analog inputs is easier than you think! The Pi does not include a hardware analog to digital converter, but a external ADC (such as the MCP3008) can be used along with some bit banged SPI code in python to read external analog devies. Here is a short list of some analog inputs that could be used with this setup.

Read more & this goes great with our MCP3008 – 8-Channel 10-Bit ADC With SPI Interface.

  1. There is a bit of repeated text on page two.

    Thanks for this tutorial and stocking this part, exactly what I was looking for.

    A suggestion would be to add the info for hardware SPI for those distributions that allow it, it’ll free up some GPIOs.

    Keep up the good work!

  2. @mike – thanks, we’ll take a look at it. We’ll have a hardware SPI distribution/tutorial shortly
