BeagleBone SPI bus


I am considering using the SPI bus for reading multiple MAX31855
thermocouple ADC's. Is it possible to read multiple SPI devices with a
single bus if you use, for example, GPO lines as the chip-select? And
if so, how horrible would it be to incorporate that into the software
drivers? Is placing extra devices an extra load to the bus?

Or can anyone recommend some sort of a bus-fan-out IC?


You can connect 2 chips on CS0 and CS1 or use bit banking
