Post Communication between SuperPro Board and Microcontroller
I am trying to interface the HiTechnic SuperPro board with an Atmel AVR microcontroller in a way that would allow me to quickly and easily send information back and forth between the microcontroller and the NXT. Something like I2C or SPI. I can't seem to figure out how the SuperPro would do this, though. It doesn't seem like any of the pins can send or receive data using these complex (and fast) protocols. Any ideas?

We've run into this issue as well. The only way around it, it seems, is to bit-bang the SuperPro board (we're using a heavily modified version of "SPI", if it can even be called that at such low speeds). If you figure something else out (having to do with the two analog ports, maybe?) please post your secrets here! :)
