I am trying to send data 8 bits at a time across SPI using the LPC812, with a delay between words. I've implemented a delay, but my words are 16 bit. To satisfy the conditions of the setup configuration, I put my 8 bit data in a 16 bit int array. And though I have set the DataSize to 8, it still uses two words at a time in transmissions. Is there a way to work around this to send the 8 bit data my slave is expecting?
