AD7175-8 on Raspberry Pi 3

Dear All,

Our project is to incorporate the AD7175-8 digital converter to Raspberry Pi 3.

We are using the implementation file written in C that we will compile into our Linux-based environment (Raspbian):

https://github.com/analogdevicesinc/no-OS/blob/master/drivers/ad717x/ad717x.c


Is that the best way to do it? We've seen couple drivers written in Verilog...

If yes, do we need to write additional lines of code to get continuous flow of data that we would eventually display or store to database? What output would we get at this point from ad717x.c ?

Thanks in advance
