VSD-E and VSD-XE features SPI serial communication bus for parameterization and control. SPI is used by GDtool to communicate with the drive.
The actual SPI protocol is largely undocumented, however a sample implementation is available in the SimpleMotion library V0.x library source codes. By default the SM library supports the FTDI TTL232R USB adapter in bit-bang mode to communicate to the SPI bus.
The source code has template/skeleton for general purpose bit bang I/O control to achieve the same functionality also on other devices such as MCUs.
