MAX31856 One shot vs Autoconvert mode STM32F7


I am interested to know what is the advantages and disadvantages between one shot and autoconvert mode in MAX31856. I believe power consumption is more for autoconvert mode. Is there anything else?

Hi Jayaram

this is primarily an Mbed OS forum and as such I’m not sure anyone is going to be able to answer your query here.


Weirdly enough my team happens to be working with the MAX31856. We’re using it in autoconvert mode because it can take measurements faster (almost 2x faster!) in this setting.
