Spider SPI... how far can it go?


#1

If one needed to connect 10 SPI devices to a Fez Spider, would a secondary board that uses a series of ports be the way to go? Also, could this board sit atop the Fez Spider and still have access to the reset switch?


#2

In terms of reset switch, you can always mount a board on the underside to keep your reset and plugs free. Not sure what board you could use yet.


#3

@ William, Nah, I would need a topside mount.


#4

What would be the difference? Just curious.
In any event, you could always just make your standoffs tall enouph to get your finger in. Or make a hole in the top board with a manual button that pushes on the reset below. That kind of thing is done with PCs and other case equip all the time.


#5

@ William, I suppose you’re right, anyways I could always do a power cycle to reset the thing.


#6

If you do custom board, you can add an extra connector for Z socket. This will give you access to the reset pin.


#7

Which pin is the reset pin on the Z socket?
EDIT: Nvmd, pin 3 to gnd right?


#8

Correct
