I'm just looking at options for output stages on a project, they need to handle 1A and I've found various chips that allow control via SPI with some nice features built in such as over-current protection etc.
Bosch have the rather nice CJ945C and there are numerous others available.
Has anyone used an SPI triggered output stage before? I only need 8 channels, but not having to route 8 input traces around the board would be nice...
I've not worked a lot with SPI before other than prewritten libraries for shields, so any help/input would be appreciated.
