I'm working on a project that requires rather high data transmission to a larger number of SPI slaves.
Will connecting multiple SPI slaves to the same master lower the througput alot? The master wont be able to communicate with all SPI slaves at the same time, so I'm guessing there will be a drop. But how do you determine the drop?
Edit: Each slave has a data bit rate up to 8 Mbps. I need 12 slaves connected and have 6 masters matching this.. However, I was thinking of reservering a number of master's for later addition of slaves, should it be needed, and thereby having 3 slaves per master. I understand the point, that each master can only communicate with one slave at a time, meaning that they will share the throughput. This was the reason for my initial question.
