Part Number: TM4C123GH6PGE
Basically, I want to use SPI for a couple of devices. That means I need 2 chip selects. The TM4C provides:SSInClk
SSInFss is available to use as a dedicated chip select (CS) for each port, with timing to enable/disable as needed. But, if I want to use 2 chip selects, it doesn't look like I can use the SSInFss, because it gets activated automatically, and would not allow me to use a 2nd GPIO for CS. Can I just use two GPIO's and bit-bang the levels as needed?, ignoring the Is there a better way?
Of course you can manipulate (e.g. bit-bang) two GPIOs as your custom CS. Just leave the SSInFss unconnected. I have seen quite some customers use GPIO as the CS in the forum. However, you are the first one to require two CS.
We are glad that we were able to resolve this issue, and will now proceed to close this thread.
