Using another SPI device with WaveShield

by Bratan on Tue Mar 12, 2013 10:48 pm

Is it possible to use another SPI device (specifically RFM12B) with WaveShield? If so any changes needed to the Wave library? :)

Not familiar with that device. But in general, the SPI bus can be shared as long as you have separate CS pins for each device.

That's great news thank you! It's actually cheaper simpler alternative to Xbee modules, I plan to use it for outdoor temperature sensor for my talking clock project.
One more question, does WaveHC library automatically releases SD Card's CS after it finished playing or I need to take care of that?

Not sure, but I think you need to do it manually.
