SPI interface
Nov. 10 - Nov. 17

Project
Nov. 24 - Dec. 1 We have many sensors with UART interfaces and others with I2C interfaces. The former interface is simpler, while the latter is more complex. You have a choice of:
  • Connecting an Arduino to a UART device with the SPI D/A already used and controlling both devices simultaneously.
  • Connecting an Arduino to an I2C device by itself.
In both cases, you want to use the LCD display to show outputs from the device(s).
