I'm trying to connect to a camera (Adafruit's VC0706) via SoftwareSerial to a MSP430F5529, and the camera is only able to transmit and receive at 38400 baud. The board is able to transmit at 38400 successfully and receives a datastream back from the camera at 38400, but it is only displayed as gibberish on Energia's serial monitor. I know the camera isn't transmitting gibberish because it gives an identical signal to an Arduino, which displays it correctly, but I'm not sure what else to do. I saw on this forum that different boards sometimes have limits to the baud rates they can interpret, so could that be it? If not, what else could cause it? Apologies if I've left anything out - I'm still rather new at this.
G'day, some port bits get set before the setup() can clear them. The same condition happens with the Blink sketch. The first lines in setup() are P6DIR = 0xFF; P6OUT = 0x0; P3DIR = 0xFF; P3OUT = 0x0; And after setup() has run the outputs are correct and the sketch works 100% But for a brief moment before setup() runs for the first(and only time) I get a few bits set on the port. Normally it would not matter but the ports are used to vary the volume and I get a thump each time I switch on. Also when reset switch is pressed (and held down)the same port bits switch high My thoughts is that I have a crook 5529, and will replace it as soon as I get a new one.
