Query if a spectrum analysis is available for reading using read()




1 if a spectrum analysis is available for reading, 0 otherwise.


 This example reads audio data from an Invensense's ICS43432 I2S microphone
 breakout board, and prints out the spectrum to the Serial console. The
 Serial Plotter built into the Arduino IDE can be used to plot the audio
 amplitude data (Tools -> Serial Plotter)

 * Arduino/Genuino Zero, MKRZero or MKR1000 board
 * ICS43432:
   * GND connected GND
   * 3.3V connected 3.3V (Zero) or VCC (MKR1000, MKRZero)
   * WS connected to pin 0 (Zero) or pin 3 (MKR1000, MKRZero)
   * CLK connected to pin 1 (Zero) or pin 2 (MKR1000, MKRZero)
   * SD connected to pin 9 (Zero) or pin A6 (MKR1000, MKRZero)
