Digilent Analog Discovery 2 Spi Spy (SDK)



I am trying to implement spi_spy thru SDK.  
My C program, based on Digital_Spi_Spy.py, decodes  correctly about ~90% of the data. Sometimes it seems to loose trigger and the rest of the frame is corrupt.

The WaveForms Protocol->SPI->Spy works perfectly every time for my setup.

Included is my C code and a .jpg from my and WaveForms output log. The faulty data is marked as yellow in the left log in the picture.

I am writing in C and the spi frequency is 300kHz settings are active low, cpol 0, cpha 0.

Is there something I am missing here? How is SPI Spy implemented in WaveForms?

Best Regards,

Hi @Tood

The implementation in the WF app is similar to the Python example.
In the app the data reception and decoding is done in a background thread and the display in the main.
In Python probably the loop is slower. Try replacing the prints by storing data in a buffer and print/write at the end, or use threading.
