Adding SD card functionality to the Clue?

by Peter_Gamma on Wed Jun 03, 2020 2:33 am

Is it possible to use the Pytolon open source bike computer which is based on the Clue as a data grabber for sensor data for heart rate, etc? Can I add SD card functionality to the Clue, for instance by adding an usb memory stick or usb sd card reader to prevent data loss?

Hi Peter_Gamma,

We do sell MicroSD breakout boards that you could wire up and use with the CLUE, but I think a more elegant solution would be to make use of the QSPI 2MB of Flash storage you have with this device.

QSPI flash - 2MB of internal flash storage for datalogging, images, fonts or CircuitPython code.


You will need install the SPIflash libraries.
