Raspberry Pi, MCP3008, and DS Touch Screen

by Johnbot on Mon Feb 04, 2013 1:28 am

I have been attempting to add a touch screen to my Raspberry Pi. Is it possible to read the DS Touch Screen with the MCP3008 and the Raspberry Pi? Is it close to how the screen is read on an Arduino?

The technique for reading it should be similar to the Arduino implementation.
This app-note explains how they work in detail: http://www.adafruit.com/datasheets/AVR341.pdf
