Does anybody have a Schematic / Circuit Diagram of the Piface Digital, i searched in /bacttemcocani.gq (downloaded in doc folder). The fastest way to get started is to download a prepared operating system image and PiFace Digital communicates with the Raspberry Pi using the SPI interface . . switch that connects the output pin to ground, and so the circuit must be. diagram below and are labelled on the underside of the PiFace™ Digital 2.

PiFace Digital 2 allows you to connect things like switches, lights and motors 8 Digital inputs on PiFace Digital 2 gives your Raspberry Pi the ability to know what is going on in the world. Easy to download icon PiFace Digital 2 diagram. *PiFace™ EXTRA board is shown simplified in this diagram. Mounting PiFace™ Relay+ to allow you to download packages with apt-get. Make sure you are. On the software side, installation is either by downloading a pre-built Expanding the Raspberry Pi with PiFace and Pi Rack Schematic.

There may be times when you may need to connect them to out-of-range voltages — in those cases the input pin current must be limited by an external resistor to a value that prevents harm to the chip. I recommend that you never source or sink more than 0.

So, if you have set the current capability to 2 mA, do not draw more than 2 mA from the pin. Never demand that any output pin source or sink more than 16 mA. Current sourced by the outputs is drawn from the 3.

Consequently, the maximum you can source from all the GPIO outputs simultaneously is less than 50 mA. You may be able to draw transient currents beyond that limit as they are drawn from the bypass capacitors on the 3.


For sink current, the pertinent limitation is that imposed by maximum chip power dissipation. In the worst case, the output pins if configured to the 16mA high current drive capability have a maximum output low voltage of about 0.

Even sinking 16 mA into 16 pins simultaneously would produce only 0. Do not drive capacitive loads. Do not place a capacitive load directly across the pin. Limit current into any capacitive load to a maximum transient current of 16 mA. For example, if you use a low pass filter on an output pin, you must provide a series resistance of at least 3. Or make an add-on board with a small microcontroller which handles time critical code and let the RPi handle what it does best; ethernet connection, user interface, usb, bluetooth connection, WiFi, etc.

If you need fast execution of your IO program use the C programming language. For example, if you just want to flash a few LEDs or read a temperature sensor in a human time scale then you can write in almost any language.

However, if you want to directly interface with other systems and control externally connected hardware at its full speed then C is your best choice. Similarly, if timing is critical, then C is the only way to go.

Python have too much overhead, it is interpreted while it is running. C runs machine code directly because the program is translated to machine code when you compile your C-source code. That makes C-code not as portable as python. Python can run on many different systems. Each of their functions and full details of how to access are detailed in the chipset datasheet [Ref.

Interrupt possibilities Interrupt means that instead of having to keep polling the GPIO for changes the operating system will be notified when a change occurs. Level interrupts maintain the interrupt status until the level has been cleared by system software e. At the system clock frequency, the pin is sampled with the criteria for generation of an interrupt being a stable transition within a 3-cycle window, i.

Asynchronous detection bypasses this synchronization to enable the detection of very narrow events.

PiFace Common Documentation

Input hysteresis GPIO input hysteresis Schmitt trigger can be on or off, output slew rate can be fast or limited, and source and sink current is configurable from 2 mA up to 16 mA. The available alternative functions and their corresponding pins are detailed below. These numbers are in reference to the chipset documentation and may not match the numbers exposed in Linux. Only fully usable functions are detailed, for some alternative functions not all the necessary pins are available for the functionality to be actually used.

There are two main ways in which it can be used: Connecting to a PC to allow access to the Linux console. To be precise: 2 changeover relays.

These switch a link between a central common pin and two other pins. You can use these as switches for an externally powered device. These detect whether a contact is open or closed.

These close the first four inputs when depressed. Element14 kindly supplied a PiFace to me for review, along with another accessory, the Pi Rack, of which more in a moment. The PiFace comes in a small cardboard box with a regulatory compliance leaflet and no other documentation.

You can see the inputs at bottom left, the outputs at top right, and the relays on the right. If you have a standard size Raspberry Pi case, it will no longer fit once the PiFace is attached, though you can still use the base of the case as I did for my tests.

Note that by default the PiFace takes power from the Pi, though this has implications for the power supply you use, which must be mA for the model B Pi.

I am using the soft-float Debian Wheezy build and chose the latter route.I am using the soft-float Debian Wheezy build and chose the latter route. When a port event occurs it is placed onto the event queue. If None then all functions are de-registered If None then all functions for the given pin are de- direction The event direction. The PiFace software includes a nice emulator which lets you operate the switches.

There may be times when you may need to connect them to out-of-range voltages — in those cases the input pin current must be limited by an external resistor to a value that prevents harm to the chip.
