ADC+DAC Combo

Dependencies

This driver depends on:

Please ensure all dependencies are available on the CircuitPython filesystem. This is easily achieved by downloading the Adafruit library and driver bundle.

Installing from PyPI

On supported GNU/Linux systems like the Raspberry Pi, you can install the driver locally from PyPI. To install for current user:

pip3 install adafruit-circuitpython-pcf8591

To install system-wide (this may be required in some cases):

sudo pip3 install adafruit-circuitpython-pcf8591

To install in a virtual environment in your current project:

mkdir project-name && cd project-name
python3 -m venv .env
source .env/bin/activate
pip3 install adafruit-circuitpython-pcf8591

Usage Example

import time
import board

import adafruit_pcf8591.pcf8591 as PCF
from adafruit_pcf8591.analog_in import AnalogIn
from adafruit_pcf8591.analog_out import AnalogOut

############# AnalogOut & AnalogIn Example ##########################
#
# This example shows how to use the included AnalogIn and AnalogOut
# classes to set the internal DAC to output a voltage and then measure
# it with the first ADC channel.
#
# Wiring:
# Connect the DAC output to the first ADC channel, in addition to the
# normal power and I2C connections
#
#####################################################################
i2c = board.I2C()
pcf = PCF.PCF8591(i2c)

pcf_in_0 = AnalogIn(pcf, PCF.A0)
pcf_out = AnalogOut(pcf, PCF.OUT)

while True:

    print("Setting out to ", 65535)
    pcf_out.value = 65535
    raw_value = pcf_in_0.value
    scaled_value = (raw_value / 65535) * pcf_in_0.reference_voltage

    print("Pin 0: %0.2fV" % (scaled_value))
    print("")
    time.sleep(1)
