engineerbynight is off to a good start with her debut Instructable “SPI on the Pi: Communicating with a SPI 3-axis accelerometer using a Raspberry Pi”.


Friday is PiDay here at Adafruit, be sure to check out our posts, tutorials and new Raspberry Pi related products.


Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.

  1. Good work by engineerbynight. She uses a library by another Mike (McCauley) at http://www.open.com.au/mikem/bcm2835/ which Adafruit may wish to include in their tutorials.

    While there is good work going on in the python world, there are ALOT of us comfortable with C (either Old School or via Arduino work).

    Thanks for posting gems like this.

  2. Aw, thanks!

    It’s just the tip of the iceburg, for sure. But I was so excited to figure SPI out, I just had to share it right away.

    I’m looking forward to polishing this tutorial up, adding more as I go.
