  2. Of course in hindsight I am probably stepping on some copyright rules by having this printed, but I don't think anyone's going to complain about that... it's a developer's manual and I am using it for developing with TI parts after all.
  3. I decided "for the hell of it" to print out the MSP430 chip family User's Guide, all 676 pages of it (slau445). Total cost was ~$70 altogether including the $10 binder from Staples. I used bestvaluecopy.com for the printing - printed in B&W, with a thicker color cover sheet, 3-hole drilled, shrink-wrapped, and put it in my own binder. Reading the more esoteric parts of the book - like the PMM, SVS and CS systems - is actually much nicer in print I found. Just more comfortable to sit down at the table and *look* at the diagrams and text and hold my left hand under the page with the
  4. Can some of us get moderator rights? Take a load off your back I'm getting back into the hobby as of recent so I can watch it for now..

  6. I may have posted about this a long time ago, but I had written a library to utilize the Nokia 1202 cellphone parts LCDs - there are a couple BoosterPacks we made years ago using this and I have at least 1 working board in my bin of parts. https://github.com/spirilis/msp1202 The library includes "msp430_spi.c", which provides an implementation of SPI for several chips including some of the FRAM chips (FR5969 and FR2433 iirc). As the Nokia 1202 LCD does not break out the D/C line, it requires 9-bit SPI, and the "spi_transfer9()" function is defined for those chips (for all the eUSCI_
  7. Kicking off my MSP430FR2433 hobby effort I looked into the RTC peripheral, which amounts to a really simple stupid counter, the likes of which I often used WDT for back in the day. It just counts up to RTCMOD and then fires the ISR. So without the fancy date tracking that RTC_B did on the Wolverine chips, I had to up the ante a bit and write myself a library to convert "epoch" seconds format (# of seconds since Jan 1 1970 midnight UTC) into a "struct tm" year/month/day/hour/minute/second/etc. structure and vice versa. I looked around for other implementations and found some inspirat
  8. Finally getting back into it. No workbench yet, but I start a 4-week sabbatical after next week, so one task on my plate is to revamp the basement with new shelving + bigger work from home office & workbench. In the meantime, I noticed the older TI SimpleLink hardware seems to be deprecated - the latest SimpleLink SDKs no longer support them & it halts with PG1.x hardware (requires PG2.0+). So I threw all those launchpads away. I guess I'm getting old or maybe wise enough to realize when something isn't worth the effort... So my focus now is the MSP430FR2433 - the Value-Li
  9. Cool article! Random thought just happened upon me, I wonder if there's a registry of all semiconductor fabs in the world?
  10. Hello Everyone! It's been a while since I last visited. I trust everyone is healthy! Today, I read this article that was talking about why there is a global chip shortage when I realized that the article gives a respectable description of the inner workings of a chip fab facility. I thought I would post it up since we know that TI has one or two of these factories themselves. Maybe they are similiar? Enjoy! zeke
  11. Rei -- Thanks, I have reverted back. David

  13. İ will use 8 digit 7segment and i need to implement your code for 8 digit. Also first 4 digit will show something other 4 digit will show temprature. So how can i change your code? İ couldnt understand excatly.
  14. The original studs are still in place, and there is a rail up front for my Atlas Clone on mine. When you epoxied the stud back in, did you add some sort of backer?
  15. Im compiling the client on my Linux box to give it a spin.It has been awhile since I did that and Im struggling to start the compiled client. I was able to get the el_data files from the latest client update thread, but I do not have a elc.ini file to point the data_dir to the correct folder.Could someone please tell me how do I generate the initial config, or point me to the doc on how to do it ? Thank you.
  16. I installed Energia 1.6 and with this the upload worked. Then I switched back to version 1.8 and it worked also. I do not understand what happened, but I am happy anyway.
  17. I've reposted this since the program insists on displaying the word"color" instead of showing it so please disregard this mess and look to the new posting if you please. thanks,

Members 0 3 posts Posted just now THIS CODE WORKS IN ALL WAYS EXCEPT WHEN IT LOOPS BACK TO GET MORE DATA, AND NONE IS BEING SENT, IT TURNS OFF THE RELAY THAT HAS BEEN SET ON. i NEED TO KEEP THE RELAY SET WHEN NO SERIAL INPUT DATA IS THERE. WHEN DIFFERENT DATA, OR THE SAME DATA IS INPUT, IT AGAIN WORKS AS EXPECTED UNTIL LOOPING BACK TO LOOK FOR MORE DATA. THE RESULT, IS THAT THE RELAY IS JUST PULSED ON UNTIL THE NEXT LOOP THROUGH.

  20. Board: MSP-Exp430G Rev. 1.5 MSP430G2231 OS: Windows 10 I upgraded to Energia: 1.8.10E23 (12/17/2019). To test I load the "Blink" from the examples. After having troubles, I also loaded the drivers new. During upload I get the the following error msg: prog: 'c:\tmp\arduino_build_502867/Blink.ino.hex': The filename, directory name, or volume label syntax is incorrect. Note the "/" before Blink". I think this causes the error. Where does it come from? The whole output can be found in the enclosed file. I could find the name in question in the output of the compi
  21. And three years later... It stopped being a solution. I give up. I'll donate my black 432 boards to someone in the club who wants to keep trying, but I will stick with the MSP430 boards which still work with my new PC, albeit more reliably if I use an old USB 2.0 splitter.
  22. Just in case anyone is interested this problem has been resolved. I purchased a new MSP432 Launchpad, it is Rev 2.1 versus the previous Rev 2.0 I was using. I found the link to the "out of box GUI" (which was not straight forward the location is NOT where the documentation with the LaunchPad indicates) and ran that from the Cloud, it worked just fine. To me that proved the serial port was communicating both ways. I then loaded my simple check out program and it worked just fine. I then plugged in my Rev 2.0 MSP432 LaunchPad (which used to work just fine) and uploaded the same chec
