Universal Thermocouple Max31856

Hi, I’m working in a project that need a thermocouple, currently i have a max31856 i been looking for xod library but couldn’t find nothing,
can i use max31855 library with max31856?

Maybe? They both use SPI interface (but there could be differences). Looks like the main difference is the thermocouple supported https://forums.adafruit.com/viewtopic.php?t=113029.

There should be no danger in trying it. Since they both use SPI, the biggest risk should be that you get garbage (or no) data back. If it doesn’t work, it is likely only minor changes are needed, but you would need to dig into the communication protocol to determine that.

Never mind. Looks like it will not work directly since they return different size data: MAX31855 & MAX31856? - MikroElektronika Forum. The read/translate part of the library will need updated to handle this.

Thank you for you response gweimer
i think my best option is to buy a max31855 since there is already a library in xod for it
