How to connect Raspberry Pi to DAC MCP 4921 using SPI Simulink blocks?

9 views (last 30 days)
I want to set an output voltage with a RaspberryPi with an DAC MCP4921 using Simulink, in particular using the new block "SPI Register Write" available in the latest Simulink version (without writing C code or Matlab code). In this block is required a Register Address where SPI has to write the value from the slave. Can anyone help me?

Looking at the datasheet, the write command register is not defined.
Can you try the "SPI Master Transfer" block with a terminator for the output?
You should send the a vector of [2x1] uint8 for the upper half and the lower half.

Would you want to use the SPI Read/Write/Master blocks to communicate with this external device, similar to this example that uses SPI to communicate with an external EEPROM device?
