Write data to and read data from an SPI device
Simulink Support Package for Arduino Hardware / Common
Write data to and read data from an SPI device connected to your Arduino board. Using this block, you can access an SPI device to measure quantities such as temperature, and pressure. You can also access an SPI device to support WiFi connectivity, and to access an SD card to store data.
To know the Arduino® boards that support this block, see Pin Mapping on Arduino Blocks
This limitation is not applicable when using Arduino MKR1000, Arduino MKR WIFI 1010, and Arduino MKR ZERO boards.
In a Simulink®model, the SPI WriteRead block is supported only if:
No blocks from the Ethernet shield library or the WiFi library are already present in the model.
External mode is over serial.
Port_1— Input port to write data to SPI slave
The input port through which the block accepts a single dimensional array of values to write to the slave device.
Port_1— Output port to read data from SPI slave device
Output port from which the block receives data from SPI slave device.
Slave select (SS) pin— Slave select pin to which SPI slave device is connected
Enter the pin number on the Arduino board to which the SPI slave device is connected. The SPI master pulls the SS pin of the selected slave to a low (0) value to start the communication. See Pin Mapping on Arduino Blocks to know the SS pin restriction with different Arduino boards.
