/* The ESP32 has four SPi buses, however as of right now only two of
* them are available to use, HSPI and VSPI. Simply using the SPI API
* as illustrated in Arduino examples will use VSPI, leaving HSPI unused.
* However if we simply intialise two instance of the SPI class for both
* of these buses both can be used. However when just using these the Arduino
* way only will actually be outputting at a time.
* Logic analyser capture is in the same folder as this example as
* "multiple_bus_output.png"
