SPIDEV without chip select

Question asked by hacke on Sep 9, 2015

I have a SPI DA (DAC8420) converter with chipselect tied to ground, so it is always selected.

Instead it needs a positive load pulse to get the value out on the analog side


The load pulse pin is connected to the SPI MISO Pin (PF12)


I try to use the spidev driver from user space and managed to disable the MISO functionality

But is it possible to tell the driver not to use chipselect ??

When i remove


in my board file, the spidev disappears from /dev directory


Anyone who knows how to do it ??


best regards
