thank you! That is exactly what I am looking for (except I couldn't find that exact one on digikey, I'll search for similar). How difficult is the I2C communication going to be? I hear it is difficult for things like displays but maybe this is super simple...the driver snippet I looked at was very straightforward.
Does anyone know if it is possible to daisychain an L6470 motor driver and SPI to parallel FIFO chip? Or does daisychaining only work with two of the same chips? Pretty short on pins and this would really cut me a break. However, the L6470 will only set the correct register values with an SPI clock frequency of 1000 kHz in SPI config, I am wondering if I will have SPI issues with the FIFO chip as well - I am pretty sure a parallel port of this nature would require a clock frequency of a few MHz (not sure if my source was accurate but he is usually on point).
Or does the FIFO chip set a different frequency since it has all the bytes queued up?
