CircuitPython library for the MCP3xxx series of analog-to-digital converters.

Currently supports:

Dependencies

This driver depends on:

Please ensure all dependencies are available on the CircuitPython filesystem. This is easily achieved by downloading the Adafruit library and driver bundle.

Installing from PyPI

On supported GNU/Linux systems like the Raspberry Pi, you can install the driver locally from PyPI. To install for current user:

pip3 install adafruit-circuitpython-mcp3xxx

To install system-wide (this may be required in some cases):

sudo pip3 install adafruit-circuitpython-mcp3xxx

To install in a virtual environment in your current project:

mkdir project-name && cd project-name
python3 -m venv .env
source .env/bin/activate
pip3 install adafruit-circuitpython-mcp3xxx

Usage Example

MCP3008 Single Ended

import busio
import digitalio
import board
import adafruit_mcp3xxx.mcp3008 as MCP
from adafruit_mcp3xxx.analog_in import AnalogIn

# create the spi bus
spi = busio.SPI(clock=board.SCK, MISO=board.MISO, MOSI=board.MOSI)

# create the cs (chip select)
cs = digitalio.DigitalInOut(board.D5)

# create the mcp object
mcp = MCP.MCP3008(spi, cs)

# create an analog input channel on pin 0
chan = AnalogIn(mcp, MCP.P0)

print('Raw ADC Value: ', chan.value)
print('ADC Voltage: ' + str(chan.voltage) + 'V')

MCP3008 Differential

import busio
import digitalio
import board
import adafruit_mcp3xxx.mcp3008 as MCP
from adafruit_mcp3xxx.analog_in import AnalogIn

# create the spi bus
spi = busio.SPI(clock=board.SCK, MISO=board.MISO, MOSI=board.MOSI)

# create the cs (chip select)
cs = digitalio.DigitalInOut(board.D5)

# create the mcp object
mcp = MCP.MCP3008(spi, cs)

# create a differential ADC channel between Pin 0 and Pin 1
chan = AnalogIn(mcp, MCP.P0, MCP.P1)

print('Differential ADC Value: ', chan.value)
print('Differential ADC Voltage: ' + str(chan.voltage) + 'V')

MCP3004 Single-Ended

import busio
import digitalio
import board
import adafruit_mcp3xxx.mcp3004 as MCP
from adafruit_mcp3xxx.analog_in import AnalogIn

# create the spi bus

# create the cs (chip select)
cs = digitalio.DigitalInOut(board.D5)

# create the mcp object
mcp = MCP.MCP3004(spi, cs)

# create an analog input channel on pin 0
chan = AnalogIn(mcp, MCP.P0)

print('Raw ADC Value: ', chan.value)
print('ADC Voltage: ' + str(chan.voltage) + 'V')

MCP3004 Differential
