// Create SPI bus
SPI spi(p5, p6, p7);
// 
// Wiring Connections:
// mbed p5,p6,p7 are tied to MCP23S17 SI, SO, SCK pins
// mbed p20 to MCP23S17 CS
// MCP23S17 reset pin pulled high
// MCP23S17 GPA0 connected to GPB0 for loopback test
// A0, A1, A2 of the MCP23S17  are tied to ground on the breadboard, so the 8-bit address for writes is 0x40
// This is referred to as the opcode in the device datasheet
char Opcode = 0x40;

// Next create a MCP23S17
// mbed p20 is connected to ~chipSelect on the MCP23S17
MCP23S17 chip = MCP23S17(spi, p20, Opcode);

// Optional software reset - mbed p14 to MCP23S17 reset pin
// DigitalOut reset(p14);

DigitalOut led1(LED1); // mbed LED1 is used for test status display

int main() {
//  The MCP23S17 reset pin can just be pulled high, since it has a power on reset circuit.
//  The reset pin can be used for a software forced reset by pulling it low with an mbed GPIO pin.
//  But just leave it pulled high for this simple demo code.
//  After a power on reset, both IO ports default to input mode
//
//  Here is the optional code for a software reset
//  reset = 0;
//  wait_us(1);
//  reset = 1;
//
//  Set all 8 Port A bits to output direction
    chip.direction(PORT_A, 0x00);
//  Set all 8 Port B bits to input direction
    chip.direction(PORT_B, 0xFF);
    led1=0;
//  Start Loopback test sending out and reading back values
//  loopback test uses A0 and B0 pins - so use a wire to jumper those two pins on MCP23S17 together
    while (1) {
        // write 0xAA to MCP23S17 Port A
        chip.write(PORT_A, 0xAA);
        wait(.5);
        // read back value from MCP23S17 Port B and display B0 on mbed led1
        led1 = chip.read(PORT_B)& 0x01;
        // write 0x55 to MCP23S17 Port A
        chip.write(PORT_A, 0x55);
        wait(.5);
        // read back value from MCP23S17 Port B and display B0 on mbed led1
        led1 = chip.read(PORT_B)& 0x01;
        // led1 should blink slowly when it is all working
