STM32F4DISCOVERY SPI Interface with Gyro problem

Question asked by yao.randy.001 on Jun 12, 2014
Hi ST,

I've run into a brick wall trying to interface my STM32F4 Discovery board to a SD740 sensor using SPI. 

I'm having trouble writing the SPI1_send function, and getting to work. (I hope my SPI1_init is correct).

Would appreciate if anyone can tell me how to pull the chip select register low, and how to receive incoming data. Working code as example would be highly appreciated :)

Thanks in advance.

 * PA7 MOSI (output data here)
 * APB2 CLK 42Mhz?
 * At time of testing - SCLK was 124.8KHz
 * MOSI sends 10101010 at 121.9KHz
 * SEL pulls low when
