README.rst

RPIO is an advanced GPIO module for the Raspberry Pi.

  • PWM via DMA (up to 1us resolution)
  • GPIO input and output (drop-in replacement for RPi.GPIO)
  • GPIO interrupts (callbacks when events occur on input gpios)
  • TCP socket interrupts (callbacks when tcp socket clients send data)
  • Command-line tools rpio and rpio-curses
  • Well documented, fast source code with minimal CPU usage
  • Open source (LGPLv3+)

Visit pythonhosted.org/RPIO for the documentation.
