  1. It wasn't helpful and moreover the original post was about something else . Therefore I felt it would make sense to create another thread .
  2. Hi , I am interfacing MSP430F5529 and SIM900A using energia software. I have tried the code using Arduino Uno before and it seemed to work fine. However when I try the same with msp430 , there is no output on the serial monitor. Few days back I came to know that there is a voltage mismatch between the msp430 output and sim900 input and as suggested by few members of the thread , I am supposed to use a voltage translator to convert the 3.3V output of the Msp430 board and then apply it to sim900A module. They recommended Rs232 for this purpose . I want to know the connection that'll be required to made in order to translate the voltage of the msp430. Where do I connect the rs232 cable and where do I apply it's output voltage ? Thank you .
  3. Hello guys , thanks for the suggestions above but I think I have figured out the error. I think there is a voltage mismatch .msp430f5529 gives a 3.3V output which isn't sufficient for the sim900A to work . So how can I translate that to 5V ?
  4. @@Fmilburn. I have tried as you suggested .the code uploads successfully ,however there is no output . The thingspeak account doesn't get updated .
  5. @@B@tto. When I run this code using Arduino Uno, it sends a Get request to thingspeak website , wherein the data collected by lm35 sensor is stored . The serial monitor doesn't show anything , which is fine because it is not supposed to show anything . However , when I run it using msp430f5529 and energia software , there is nothing in serial monitor and also the data doesn't get updated on thingspeak website .it just keeps running .I have checked my lm35 reading in energia , it is working fine , but the Get request is not being made . My guess is that the serial pins I have used may be wrong or the AT commands may not be correct . Also , I am using pin 3.4 and pin 3.3 for receiving and transmitting in the msp430 board . Any help will be much appreciated .
  6. I am interfacing LM35 and SIM900 using MSP430F5529 board . For this purpose i am using Energia software . As we all know arduino code is compatible in Energia . Hence , I have used the same code that i used in Arduino Uno . The code works fine and i get my thingspeak channel updated with every HTTP request however , when i use Energia , it doesnt show any error , neither does it show/update my thingspeak channel . I had used Pin 7 and 8 for receiving and transmitting in Arduino . In Msp430 , I have used Pin P3.4 and P3.3 for receiving and transmitting . My Energia code is as follows - #include <SoftwareSerial.h> #include <String.h> SoftwareSerial mySerial(P3_4, P3_3); boolean pin2=LOW,pin3=LOW,pin4=LOW,pin5=LOW,pin6=LOW; float temp=0.0; void setup() { mySerial.begin(9600); // the GPRS baud rate Serial.begin(9600); // the GPRS baud rate pinMode(2,INPUT); pinMode(3,INPUT); pinMode(4,INPUT); pinMode(5,INPUT); pinMode(6,INPUT); delay(1000); } void loop() { temp=analogRead(A0); temp=temp*0.4887; delay(2); Send2Pachube(); if (mySerial.available()) Serial.write(; } void Send2Pachube() { mySerial.println("AT"); delay(1000); mySerial.println("AT+CPIN?"); delay(1000); mySerial.println("AT+CREG?"); delay(1000); mySerial.println("AT+CGATT?"); delay(1000); mySerial.println("AT+CIPSHUT"); delay(1000); mySerial.println("AT+CIPSTATUS"); delay(2000); mySerial.println("AT+CIPMUX=0"); delay(2000); ShowSerialData(); mySerial.println("AT+CSTT=\"aircelgprs\"");//start task and setting the APN, delay(1000); ShowSerialData(); mySerial.println("AT+CIICR");//bring up wireless connection delay(3000); ShowSerialData(); mySerial.println("AT+CIFSR");//get local IP adress delay(2000); ShowSerialData(); mySerial.println("AT+CIPSPRT=0"); delay(3000); ShowSerialData(); mySerial.println("AT+CIPSTART=\"TCP\",\"\",\"80\"");//start up the connection delay(6000); ShowSerialData(); mySerial.println("AT+CIPSEND");//begin send data to remote server delay(4000); ShowSerialData(); String str="GET" + String(temp); mySerial.println(str);//begin send data to remote server delay(4000); ShowSerialData(); mySerial.println((char)26);//sending delay(5000);//waitting for reply, important! the time is base on the condition of internet mySerial.println(); ShowSerialData(); mySerial.println("AT+CIPSHUT");//close the connection delay(100); ShowSerialData(); } void ShowSerialData() { while(mySerial.available()!=0) Serial.write(; }
