raspihats package

This package provides the necessary code to interface the Raspberry Pi HATs(add-on boards) from raspihats.com:

Typical usage often looks like this:

#!/usr/bin/env python
# In this setup there are two I2C-HATs stacked, one DI16ac and one DQ10rly.
from raspihats.i2c_hats import DI16ac, DQ10rly

di16ac = DI16ac(0x40)   # 0x40 is the I2C bus address
dq10rly = DQ10rly(0x50) # 0x50 is the I2C bus address

while True:
    state = di16ac.di.channels[0]           # get digital input channel 0
    dq10rly.dq.channels[0] = state          # set digital output channel 0
    dq10rly.dq.channels[1] = not state      # set digital output channel 1

IRQ feature(from v2.3.0)

Starting from hardware revision 2.0, DI16ac and DI6acDQ6rly boards can trigger an IRQ line that's connected to GPIO21 of the Raspberry Pi.
try:
    import Queue as queue
except ImportError:
    import queue
from time import sleep
import RPi.GPIO as GPIO
from raspihats.i2c_hats import DI16ac, DI6acDQ6rly

IRQ_PIN = 21
GPIO.setmode(GPIO.BCM)

# IRQ pin setup as input with pull-up enabled
GPIO.setup(IRQ_PIN, GPIO.IN, pull_up_down=GPIO.PUD_UP)

# this queue is used to safely exchange information between threads
event_queue = queue.Queue(maxsize = 20)

def isr(pin):
    event_queue.put(pin)

GPIO.add_event_detect(IRQ_PIN, GPIO.FALLING, callback=isr)

# b = DI16ac(0x40)        # 0x40 is the I2C bus address
b = DI6acDQ6rly(0x60)   # 0x60 is the I2C bus address

print(str(b.name) + ' ' + str(b.fw_version))
print('Use Ctrl+C to stop program.')

# enable rising edge IRQs for Digital Input channels 0 and 2
b.di.irq_reg.rising_edge_control = 0x05

# enable falling edge IRQs for Digital Input channels 1 and 2
b.di.irq_reg.falling_edge_control = 0x06

# dump DigitalInputs IRQ CaptureQueue contents and release IRQ line by
# writing 0 to DigitalInputs IRQ Capture Register
b.di.irq_reg.capture = 0

while True:
    try:
        # wait until there is something in the queue, timeout is here because a
        # queue.get without a timeout can't be interrupted with a KeyboardInterrupt
        pin = event_queue.get(block=True, timeout=0.2)
        if pin == IRQ_PIN:
            # read the DigitalInputs IRQ Capture Register(to read the values
            # stored in the DigitalInputs IRQ CaptureQueue) until the
            # returned value is 0, this means DigitalInputs IRQ CaptureQueue
            # is empty and the IRQ line is released
            while True:
                capture = b.di.irq_reg.capture
                if capture == 0:
                    break
                status = capture & 0xFFFF
                states = (capture >> 16) & 0xFFFF
                for channel in range(0, 16):
                    mask = 0x01 << channel
                    if (status & mask) > 0:
                        print('IRQ detected on channel: %d, state: %d' %(channel, (states & mask) >> channel))
    except queue.Empty:
        pass

    except KeyboardInterrupt:
        # disable rising edge IRQs for Digital Input channels
        b.di.irq_reg.rising_edge_control = 0

        # disable falling edge IRQs for Digital Input channels
        b.di.irq_reg.falling_edge_control = 0

        GPIO.remove_event_detect(IRQ_PIN)
        GPIO.cleanup()

        break

Change Log

v2.3.0

  • Added IRQ support

v2.2.3

  • enum34 is loaded for python<3.4
  • Setup script warning if it's not run with sudo(used to setup I2C ClockStretchTimeout)

v2.2.2

  • Bug fix in setup script, BCM2835 platform hardware is now recognized.
  • Bug fix in robotframework interface, status.value is now returned by get_status()

v2.2.1

  • Added StatusWord class. To get raw int value use board.status.value, to get beautiful string representation use str(board.status).

v2.1.1

  • String representation of I2CHat object doesn't use an I2C bus transfer any more.
  • Improved exception messages

v2.1.0

  • Improved exception handling

v2.0.1

  • Fixed I2C clock stretch timeout setup script

v2.0.0

v1.1.1

#!/usr/bin/env python
# In this setup there are two I2C-HATs stacked, one Di16 and one Rly10.
from raspihats.i2c_hats import Di16, Rly10

di16 = Di16(0x40)   # 0x40 is the I2C bus address
rly10 = Rly10(0x50) # 0x50 is the I2C bus address
# The I2C-HAT address high nibble is fixed(0x4 for Di16, 0x5 for Rly10), the low nibble
# value is set using the on-board address jumper, range is [0x0 .. 0xF].

while True:
    state = di16.di_get_channel_state('Di1.1')
    rly10.do_set_channel_state('Rly1', state)
    rly10.do_set_channel_state('Rly2', not state)
