  1. Ti sent me an email for 50% off a cc2591 evaluation module. The Promo code is LRG5-SA02RK. I thought I would throw that out there if anyone is interested. Its only $50us instead of $100. The cc2591 is a 2.4Ghz range extender that compliments their other CC wireless offerings. They said this offer was for today ( 01/27/2010) but, at the bottom it implies longer.

  2. Hi all, Browsing through DangerousPrototypes blog today, I saw Ian posted some info about TI's floating-point Piccolo MCUs. Texas Instruments has development boards with F28069 in memory stick form factor on promotion now ($11 if using the promo code Piccolo11 at checkout). It seems those Piccolo MCUs have far more capabilities than I'll ever use in my simplistic projects, but there are a lot of clever people in this forum who may find it useful You can see and order the dev board here: https://estore.ti.com/TMDX28069USB-F28069-Piccolo-controlSTICK-P2257C43.aspx?DCMP=F2806x&

  3. Ok, I am going to "keep it real" with you guys. I am a complete slob. I live with my girlfriend, and she's pretty much given up on cleaning up after me. I'm just lucky I don't get yelled at every day about it. Sometimes I clean and organize, but it looks like this again after a week or so. I could have tidied up a bit, but then I'd be living a lie! So, as promised, things are about to get "real" in this mofo.

  4. Well, I've been using it for a bit now. It's actually pretty useful in several applications I didn't expect. For example, I'm tinkering with an rfid reader. Its baud rate isn't easily divided down to from the default clock settings, so I decided to use something like a state machine to read the data. This involved setting up an interrupt to capture and handle the edge transitions of the serial data. Well, it wasn't working. I had a suspicion that the interrupt was taking too long, and missing some transitions. In the past, I would have enabled Timer A and used it to count the cycles

  6. It depends on how "deep" is the sleep. If only the CPUOFF is set, it only takes n cycle of MCLK to start the CUP. If the source of MCLK is off, extra time is needed to start up that clock. If DCO is off but its current source is on, it only takes a few usecs. If the current source is off, extra usecs are needed.

    Where's the Simulator?

    The IAR KickStart has simulator for all MSP430, including G2xx1 and G2xx2.

  8. The linker will not include the full library but only sections that you use and will not include functions that are never called. However you will need to set compiler optimization though. If you are using the compiler provided by TI (code composer i think) try the switches -O4 or -O3. Keep in mind this some times does not debug as well. This will also do more optimization and reduce the code size. also --opt_for_speed=0 will optimize your code for size rather than speed. a few switches to help up debug fully optimized code --symdebug:dwarf --optimize_with_debug option. Also I fo

  9. If you end up designing your own board, I highly recommend The Dorkbot/PDX order. I had some made, and they are excellent quality and cheap! (Do be sure to double-check your designs, though. :oops: )
