configurePin

Configure GPIO pin as digital input, digital output, or PWM output

Description

example

configurePin(mypi,pinNumber,mode) configures the GPIO pinNumber pin of a Raspberry Pi™ device mypi as a digital input, digital output, or PWM output, depending on the specified mode.

mode = configurePin(mypi,pinNumber) returns the current configuration mode of the pin.

Input Arguments

collapse all

Connection to a specific Raspberry Pi hardware board, specified as a raspi object.

GPIO pin number, specified as a scalar. This argument does not accept vectors because the hardware cannot access multiple pins simultaneously.

To get a list of valid pin numbers, enter mypi.AvailableDigitalPins.

Example: 12

Data Types: double

Mode used to configure the pin, specified as 'DigitalInput', 'DigitalOutput', or 'PWM'.

Data Types: char

Output Arguments

collapse all

Current configuration mode of pin, returned as 'DigitalInput', 'DigitalOutput', or 'PWM'.

Connect your digital device to the first GPIO pin available, for example GPIO 4.

Configure pin GPIO 4 as a digital input.

configurePin(mypi,4,'DigitalInput')

Read the value from pin GPIO 4.

readDigitalPin(mypi,4)
ans =

  1

The logical value of 1 indicates a positive voltage signal on the pin GPIO 4.

Configure a GPIO pin as a digital output and write its logical value.

Create a connection from the MATLAB software to the Raspberry Pi board.

Connect your digital device to the first GPIO pin available, for example GPIO 4.

Configure pin GPIO 4 as a digital output.

configurePin(mypi,4,'DigitalOutput')   

Write a logical value of 1 to pin GPIO 4.

writeDigitalPin(mypi,4,1)

The logical value of 1 sets the signal voltage on pin GPIO 4 to high.
