But it didnt work. The text appears to describe what you are trying to achieve, and gives some fragments of sample code that mention the device “tcx”. GPIO library, unless you invent your own abstractions. Decoding much of the code for the “readReg ” and “writeReg ” functions was the toughest part for me. Writing as “out” defaults to initializing the value as low. Remember the address and the GPIO interrupt pin from the wiring above. Sorry, I did not understand your question.

My only concern with this setup is that the MCP is I2C based, which as communications standards go, is relatively slow.

It is the job of the kernel driver to provide all this information, and to communicate with the chip over I2C. Blog Droid 4 N About. Any help would lniux appreciated.

devicetree overlay for MCP GPIO expander – Raspberry Pi Forums

If it is in a low state i. I found none, so I wrote my own Currently it only supports the MCP, as it is the only one I have available here to test it.

Sign up using Facebook. However, we will be using the i2cdetect program to verify that the chip is there at the desired address. The Raspberries have 26 or 40 pin expansion headers depending on the hardware revision.

I guess it’s correct behavior. Sorry, I did not understand oinux question.

I guess it what you intended, so it’s ok. The next two parameters represent the register address and the data to be written into that register address To set pin GPA0 LED to libux and then toggle it, type the following in the command line: You can mmcp23017 to load your overlay like described in that article: I get an Error: This file contains the names of kernel modules that should be loaded at boot time, one per line.


The DT snippet from below can be used to register the kernel driver with pull-ups enabled on all pins and single IRQ connected to gpio 23 from the SoC.

But the driver probe function is not called. See how the new GPIO chip is available, pi raspberrypi: The class definition is shown below: The same holds true for a number of port expander chips. Note that the I2C specification requires that these pins have pull-up resistors on them.

Board index All times are UTC. Also I have connected two MCP chips. But this would require a mcp32017 kernel. Did lonux use lsmod to verify the driver was loaded?

The I2C 2 wire bus is made up of a SDA wire for bi-directional mcpp23017 transfer between master and slave devices and a SCL clock signal wire that is driven by the master to the slave s to keep communication synchronized.

Let’s take a closer look at the “writeReg ” function.

CONFIG_GPIO_MCP23S08: Microchip MCP23xxx I/O expander

Add printk’s to the irq routine to detect the code path. I first created a class called “i2c8Bit” which ideally is capable of communicating with any i2c device that has a series of byte wide registers such as the MCP chip.


Notice how they are labelled private since they are only used in the constructors and destructor respectively. Test the Wiring Given that we correctly wired the I2C pins, we should now see someone there on the bus at address 0x Next we will see how to automatically load and parameterize that driver.

It doesn’t let you set the value of a pin before making it an output and it only lets you deal with one pin at a time which makes it even slower than it needs to be going through the kernel will always be a slow way of doing GPIO but having to do it one bit at a time multiplies the overheadI would expect performance to be even worse in the case of an IO expander.

We also have a variable to store the I2C device descriptor that references an open device and is typically returned by the “open ” system call. I suspect the pcm probe function is also registering its interrupt in this tree. Make sure that the A2, A1 and A0 pins are all grounded, making the the 7-bit device address of the MCP “” in binary which is equivalent of 0x20 hex.
