SPI support?


I'm developing a motion capture system with 6 Metawear CPros and have run into a issue where I can't stream fast enough (100 Hz is impossible with 3 sensors - gyros, accel and mag).

I have also tried simply logging onboard each sensor but I quickly run out of space after ~60s.

I saw somewhere that the modules can do SPI, but I can't find anything in the android API. Is it supported? My idea is that I could add an external EEPROM which allow logging much longer.

Thanks in advance!

    Yes there is SPI support, we just have not exposed control of the SPI bus to the user.  It will be released in the new firmware update.
  • Hi Eric

    Thanks for the quick reply.

    That's awesome! When the will the new firmware be released?

  • We don't have a specific release date in mind as there aren't any critical features that need to be released.  I'll have a more concrete timeline when I talk with the firmware developer.
