Use the PortInOut class to read and write an underlying GPIO port as one value. This is much faster than BusInOut because you can write a port in one go, but it is much less flexible because you are constrained by the port and bit layout of the underlying GPIO ports.

A mask can be supplied so only certain bits of a port are used, allowing other bits to be used for other classes.
