Go - Analog Out Bricklet 2.0

This is the description of the Go API bindings for the Analog Out Bricklet 2.0. General information and technical specifications for the Analog Out Bricklet 2.0 are summarized in its hardware description.

An installation guide for the Go API bindings is part of their general description. Additional documentation can be found on godoc.org.

API

The Analog Out Bricklet 2.0 API is defined in the package github.com/Tinkerforge/go-api-bindings/analog_out_v2_bricklet

Nearly every function of the Go bindings can return an BrickletError, implementing the error interface. The error can have one of the following values:

  • BrickletErrorSuccess = 0
  • BrickletErrorInvalidParameter = 1
  • BrickletErrorFunctionNotSupported = 2
  • BrickletErrorUnknownError = 3

which correspond to the values returned from Bricks and Bricklets.

All functions listed below are thread-safe.

Basic Functions

func NewAnalogOutV2Bricklet(uid string, ipcon *IPConnection)(device AnalogOutV2Bricklet, err error)

Creates a new AnalogOutV2Bricklet object with the unique device ID uid and adds it to the IPConnection ipcon:

This device object can be used after the IPConnection has been connected (see examples above).

func (*AnalogOutV2Bricklet)SetOutputVoltage(voltage uint16)(err error)

Sets the voltage in mV. The possible range is 0V to 12V (0-12000).

func (*AnalogOutV2Bricklet)GetOutputVoltage()(voltage uint16, err error)

Returns the voltage as set by (*AnalogOutV2Bricklet) SetOutputVoltage.

Advanced Functions

func (*AnalogOutV2Bricklet)GetInputVoltage()(voltage uint16, err error)

Returns the input voltage in mV.

func (*AnalogOutV2Bricklet)GetAPIVersion()(apiVersion [3]uint8, err error)

Returns the version of the API definition (major, minor, revision) implemented by this API bindings. This is neither the release version of this API bindings nor does it tell you anything about the represented Brick or Bricklet.

func (*AnalogOutV2Bricklet)GetResponseExpected(functionId uint8)(responseExpected bool, err error)

Returns the response expected flag for the function specified by the function ID parameter. It is true if the function is expected to send a response, false otherwise.

For getter functions this is enabled by default and cannot be disabled, because those functions will always send a response. For callback configuration functions it is enabled by default too, but can be disabled by (*AnalogOutV2Bricklet) SetResponseExpected. For setter functions it is disabled by default and can be enabled.

Enabling the response expected flag for a setter function allows to detect timeouts and other error conditions calls of this setter as well. The device will then send a response for this purpose. If this flag is disabled for a setter function then no response is send and errors are silently ignored, because they cannot be detected.

See (*AnalogOutV2Bricklet) SetResponseExpected for the list of function ID constants available for this function.

func (*AnalogOutV2Bricklet)SetResponseExpected(functionId uint8, responseExpected bool)(err error)

Changes the response expected flag of the function specified by the function ID parameter. This flag can only be changed for setter (default value: false) and callback configuration functions (default value: true). For getter functions it is always enabled.

Enabling the response expected flag for a setter function allows to detect timeouts and other error conditions calls of this setter as well. The device will then send a response for this purpose. If this flag is disabled for a setter function then no response is send and errors are silently ignored, because they cannot be detected.

The following function ID constants are available for this function:

  • FunctionSetOutputVoltage = 1
func (*AnalogOutV2Bricklet)SetResponseExpectedAll(responseExpected bool)(err error)

Changes the response expected flag for all setter and callback configuration functions of this device at once.

func (*AnalogOutV2Bricklet)GetIdentity()(uid string, connectedUid string, position rune, hardwareVersion [3]uint8, firmwareVersion [3]uint8, deviceIdentifier uint16, err error)

Returns the UID, the UID where the Bricklet is connected to, the position, the hardware and firmware version as well as the device identifier.

The position can be 'a', 'b', 'c' or 'd'.

The device identifier numbers can be found here. There is also a constant for the device identifier of this Bricklet.

Constants

analog_out_v2_bricklet.DeviceIdentifier

This constant is used to identify a Analog Out Bricklet 2.0.

The (*AnalogOutV2Bricklet) GetIdentity function and the (*IPConnection) RegisterEnumerateCallback callback of the IPConnection have a deviceIdentifier parameter to specify the Brick's or Bricklet's type.

analog_out_v2_bricklet.DeviceDisplayName

This constant represents the human readable name of a Analog Out Bricklet 2.0.
