airspy_gpio(1) read and write gpio pin values


The Airspy is a tiny and efficient software defined radio receiver.

This application lets the user read and write gpio pins.




-p, --port_no <p>: set port number<p>[0,7] for subsequent read/write operations
-n, --pin_no <n>: set pin number<n>[0,31] for subsequent read/write operations
-r, --read: read port number/pin number value and direction specified by last -n argument, or all port/pin
-w, --write <v>: write value specified by last -n argument with value<v>[0,1]
[-s serial_number_64bits]: Open board with specified 64bits serial number.


<command> -p 0 -n 12 -r # reads from port 0 pin number 12
<command> -r # reads all pins on all ports
<command> -p 0 -n 10 -w 1 # writes port 0 pin number 10 with 1 decimal
