This is related to a previous question I asked here a couple of days ago about getting a reading from the BMI160 IMU chip. I've tried to open the spidev3.0 device by writing a simple python script (and have also changed its permission to be executable of course):
# !/usr/bin/env python
spi = spidev.SpiDev()
However, I am met with a Permission Denied error. I am wondering if anyone else has had this trouble or is there something else I am missing here?
Additionally, I have tried to run this command on my terminal:
spi_xfer -b 3 -c 0 -d 0x80 -w 2
And the result is this, but I have no idea what to do with this information:
spi mode: 0
bits per word: 8
max speed: 1000000 Hz
TX: 0x80 0x0
RX: 0x0 0xd1
Thanks in advance!
