Hello all, I have been working for some time now on interfacing this accelerometer to the basicX-24. It is giving me real troubles. They show the source code in Pbasic and they simply use shift commands. I wish I coudl do the same but I need 12 bits. I looked up all the indivudual chips and it uses SPI protocol I am assuming. what puzzles me though is it uses one pin instead of 2 fo...

Hello I am new to the bx-24 and programming so I hope you don't think I'm a chump with dumb questions. I am building a walking Robot and I want to use the BX-24 as the brain. I am going to have 17 servo motors,sharp IR range detector and a 5g accelerometer. So far it is coming together very well, I have the distance senor and accelerometer working well with the BX-24. My problem is
