ADPD 4100 SPI Connections

Are there any reference circuit diagrams available which illustrate the SPI connections between ADPD4100 and a primary device. I am currently connecting the DVDD1 (E1) to +1.8V; DGND (E2) to GND; SCLK (C2) to primary SCK output; SPI MISO (C1) to primary MISO; SPI MOSI (D1) to primary MOSI; and SPI CS (D2) to primary CS.

However, when I call

on the primary it always gives an error. I am using an Arduino UNO as the primary. I am using a bi-directional logic-level converted to establish communication between ADPD4100 and the UNO. I have tested the logic-level converter separately and it is fast enough for SPI communication for this application.

Do you have any suggestions on how I can proceed with debugging?

Any help is highly appreciated. Thank you very much!

  • After some more debugging, I was able to resolve the issue. I am writing this reply to conclude this thread and document my findings which may help other users:

    I found that the logic level converter (TXB0108) was faulty. I modified the eval board to set IOVDD to 3.3VDC and tried SPI communication using a Raspberry Pi as the primary. I made the same connections as mentioned in one of my previous comments but without the logic level converter. SPI communication successfully worked in this scenario.

    Thank you very much for your help, Sathish!
