I want to connect multiple (exactly 64) RFID-RC522 modules to one Nodemcu ESP8266. I already know, that it is possible to connect multiple RC522's by just using different pins for the SDA pin, while the rest of the RC522 pins can be connected to the same pins on the ESP8266. But not that many, of course.
My research on "how do I get more pins", got me to the MCP23017 port expander. Further research is not exactly clear, if I can use these pins as ChipSelect/SlaveSelect pins for the RC522. The two libaries I found for MCP23017 (blemasle/arduino-mcp23017 and Adafruit-MCP23017 seem not to support this, when I use miguelbalboa/rfid (which I have to use, as there seems to be no alternative), because the MCP-Libs do not provide a "Pin Number" for the MFRC522 constructor(?).
So, is this just a "software" thing, or a technical limitation, and what I want is simply not possible? My research was not exactly clear about this, but I'm also very new to electronics and might be researching in the wrong direction.
