Do you have a specific discussion area for the SPIDriver? Mine just arrived, and seems to power up properly, but the software from GitHub won't actually talk to it - I get "CreateFile failed with error 2: The system cannot find the file specified." from spicl, and "SetCommState failed with error 87: The parameter is incorrect." from spigui. OS is Windows 7.

Ok, after forcing the device to COM2 instead of COM11, spicl now works just fine. Yay!
However, spigui still fails with the SetCommState error. I suspect it is finding my COM1 (built-in serial port) first, and failing to set it to the oddball baud rate the SPIDriver uses.
One other issue I've noticed - when I'm writing data with the spicl "w" command, any activity on MISO is being ignored, it shows as constant low regardless of the actual state of the input. It would appear that spicl cannot be used with any device that actually takes advantage of SPI's capability for bidirectional communications.
