  • I had a to change a few little bits. For example I had to remove the call to onInit(); other wise the serial on(data) was getting fired twice on boot which messed up the output.
    I also added a frame per second counter for testing and I get a steady 25 fps!
    My next task maybe to try and get this working over USB alone but if I need console access this might not be possible. maybe I could move console onto Bluetooth..
    Here is the full code used in the video:

      var fps = 0;
      function onInit() {
        SPI2.setup({baud:3200000, mosi:B15});
        var cmd = "";
        Serial3.setup(1000000, {tx:C10,rx:C11});
        Serial3.on('data', function (data) {
          var idx = cmd.indexOf("\1");
          while (idx>=0) {
            var line = cmd.substr(0,idx);
            cmd = cmd.substr(idx+1);
            idx = cmd.indexOf("\1");
            SPI2.send4bit(line, 0b0001, 0b0011);
        var fps = setInterval(function() {
          console.log('fps: ' + fps);
          fps = 0;
        }, 1000);
