thingSoC : Extended SPI Design

January 10, 2016

I don't know where I'm going from here, but I promise it won't be boring.

—David Bowie

The thingSoC specification defines a set of extended SPI (Serial Parallel Interface) signals that provides a simple, but extensible, high-speed interface. Two (2) additional select signals allow a standard method to access up to four (4) SPI peripherals using only a single, external 2:4 decoder chip.

thingSoC : Pin Multiplex Design

January 01, 2016

There is nothing permanent except change.


thingSoC has a new, but simple method for determining the multiplexing of Input/Output Pins for add-on boards and peripherals. Remember that the Linux Device Tree pin multiplexing information is provided to control the pin multiplexing on the CPU or microcontroller itself; and doesn't necessarily specify all the information about a specific peripheral pin multiplexing or it's capabilities.
thingSoC has a few simple bus configurations that make interfacing peripherals a snap.

The only way to deal with an unfree world is to become so absolutely free that your very existance is an act of rebellion.

—Albert Camus

In order to really understand why the thingSoC platform was needed, you first need a little background on the previous generation of embedded development tools, and small form factor microprocesor boards.
