Raspberry Pi Data Acquisition & SPI Multiplexing #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi

I’ve seen quite a few questions in the forums on how to add more SPI devices … so I decided to write up one of my Raspberry Pi based data acquisition projects.
Currently there are 8 channels of 0-4.096V inputs with 1mV resolution, and 16 channels of 0-8.192V channels with 2mV resolution, article has the schematic and Python source.
I used three MCP3208′s, a 74HC138N, precision resistors and a precision voltage reference in order to add 24 channels of analog input to one of my Raspberry Pi’s.
