After a long and lengthy battle with a MAX31865 thermocouple amp, I'm now ready to add a potentiometer to the mix. Ideally I'd like to use a single raspberry pi, not an Arduino and pi set up that most tutorials seem to favor. I've wired a MCP3008 to the same pi as the Max31865 per the Adafruit instructions and other tutorials. I'm fairly confidant the wiring and connections are correct, the Max is connected to CEO and the MCP to CE1. When I attempt to use the Pot the only value i and get from debug is zero
My questions are:
1- is it possible to use these two devices on the same pi simultaneously?
2- all of the wiring is shared (Clk,miso,mosi) with the Max other than the CE0 and CE1. Is that correct?
3- why is combining a pi and an arduino such a common thing?
4- What type of simple test can I run on the MCP to make sure its working properly with the A/D converter node that was in the pallet.
Thank you all.
