USB SPI Click Board
Introduce SPI serial communication using USB cable to the user design with the USB SPI Click Board™. This add-on board comes with MCP2210 USB-to-SPI protocol converter with GPIO as well as USB MINI B connector. The MCP2210 chip contains 256 bytes user EEPROM, 128-byte buffer to handle data, and 9 general purpose I/O pins. The 12 MHz crystal oscillator aboard USB SPI Click Board™ offers external clock waveform for MCP2210 IC. The board includes two LED diodes, wherein, the green LED diode denotes the presence of power supply and the other indicates the SPI traffic. Compact and easy to implement, USB SPI Click Board™ is designed to communicate with the target board microcontroller through Serial Peripheral communication interface as a master device. The board is designed to operate on 3.3V or 5V power supply, selectable by the SMD jumper.
USB SPI Click Board™ is an ideal choice to connect with SPI client devices directly from the computer, without the need for a microcontroller.

IC/Module: MCP2210 USB-to-SPI Protocol Converter with GPIO
MCP2210 is a USB-to-SPI protocol converter device with GPIO. It comprises of 256 Bytes of user EEPROM, 128 Byte buffer to handle data (64 byte transmit and 64-byte receive) and 9 GPIO pins. 7 pins have alternate functions to indicate USB and communication status. It also integrates USB termination resistors to reduce external components.
Designing SPI Slave Devices
USB SPI Click is capable of communicating with SPI client devices directly from your PC without needing a microcontroller. The board receives commands from Microchip's free SPI Terminal software and sends appropriate bytes through SPI communication interface. This makes it a very sought-after tool for designing SPI slave devices, such as sensors.
Selectable Power Supply
USB SPI Click features a zero-ohm SMD jumper J1, which enable the user to easily switch from 3.3V to 5V power supply. By default, the jumper is soldered to 3.3V position.
