Adafruit CircuitPython BusDevice¶
SPIDevice helper classes make managing transaction state
on a bus easy. For example, they manage locking the bus to prevent other
concurrent access. For SPI devices, it manages the chip select and protocol
changes such as mode. For I2C, it manages the device address.
This library is NOT built into CircuitPython to make it easy to update. To install it either follow the directions below or install the library bundle.
- Download and unzip the latest release zip.
- Copy the unzipped
libdirectory on the
See examples/read_register_i2c.py and examples/read_register_spi.py for examples of the module’s usage.

To build this library locally you’ll need to install the circuitpython-build-tools package.
python3 -m venv .env source .env/bin/activate pip install circuitpython-build-tools
Once installed, make sure you are in the virtual environment:
Then run the build:
circuitpython-build-bundles --filename_prefix adafruit-circuitpython-busdevice --library_location .
Sphinx is used to build the documentation based on rST files and comments in the code. First, install dependencies (feel free to reuse the virtual environment from above):
python3 -m venv .env source .env/bin/activate pip install Sphinx sphinx-rtd-theme
Now, once you have the virtual environment activated:
cd docs sphinx-build -E -W -b html . _build/html
This will output the documentation to
docs/_build/html. Open the index.html in your browser to
view them. It will also (due to -W) error out on any warning like Travis will. This is a good way to
locally verify it will pass.
