  1. That will be Wire.setModule() what you are searcing. Anyhow i have downloaded your files, fired up the test code attached, selected my chosen Wire.module and it works nice. Havent looked in the code yet, but thanks for it!
  2. Hello! Can anybody provide information about declaring multiple SPI objects for separate HW SPI modules or about the correct routine of switching the SPI channel of a SPI object? Im trying to an ILI9341 TFT and a XPT2043 touch controller, but sadly I can not join them to use a single bus, because the MISO of the TFT is killing the communication. Now i connected them to the same bus, MISO only going to the touch controller and it works fine, but the problem made me curious about the proper usage of the SPI modules.
  3. Okay, just found that i have to include SPI.h in my sketch also. http://forum.arduino.cc/index.php?topic=45232.0
  4. Hey! Im trying to slap together a library for the microchip mcp23s17 io expander. Ive wrote the functions and wanted try out my creation, but when i verify my code i get error like I did not included SPI.h, but i did. mcp_lib\MCP23S17.cpp.o: In function `mcp23s17::gpioRegisterWriteByte(unsigned char, unsigned char, bool)': MCP23S17.cpp:(.text._ZN8mcp23s1721gpioRegisterWriteByteEhhb+0x8): undefined reference to `SPIClass::transfer(unsigned char)' MCP23S17.cpp:(.text._ZN8mcp23s1721gpioRegisterWriteByteEhhb+0x10): undefined reference to `SPIClass::transfer(unsigned char)' MCP23S17.cpp:(.tex
  5. Wanna participate Also anybody knows about an MSP430 based parts tester? (transistros, FET, etc...)
  6. Is there any solution to use this code with DS18S20 sensors?
  7. Anybody used yet the built in DAC in 430F5638? I tried to make it alive with the driver from TI driver package but I've failed. The driver itself was built succesfull and ran, but setting the register of the output level did nothing. And how about the built in USB connection? Is it easy to use or painfull to get it working?
  8. Problem solved! The radio caused the overheating... Theres a pin called R_BIAS, which determines the output power of the RF module (as far as I understood the datasheet), but I cant managed to find a formula in the documents how is it calculated... But it seems like if its not "floating" everythings fine So another chip on the list of which can be programmed with the LP 8-)
  9. Every device can be programmed with it which contains a spy-bi-wire block, it can be seen in the block diagramm. Long story short currently supported: Value line, Series 2, Series 5, but check your chosen, not all cjips have SBW, but many
  10. Only tried it with one chip, nothing happened just heating like without it... But Avcc and Avss is needed to programming be possible? :roll:
  11. Hy! So I'm trying to program different higher series chips with my launchpad and I was succesfull with F2274, F5508 but no luck with CC430F5137... Here's the problem: I connected Dvcc (there is 3 of it) and Dvss to the launchpad, RST and TEST. At first i started the debugging in CCS it recognized the chip then gave an error that it's cannot be written... when I unplugged it, it was damn hot :crazy: I thought I did something wrong, short circuit or anything, replaced the chip and double checked my break-out-board. Now with the new chip same problem, when I plugged it into the sup
  12. Succesfully programmed MSP430F5508 and MSP430F2274 today with the launchpad! :clap:
  13. This and the capsense module combined would be an awesome media controller :mrgreen:
  14. Thanks for the answers! I think than the RESET and other legs are for debugging.
  15. Hello guys! I'm new to the microcontrollers altought we have learned it in the school, but im very interested in them. A saw a lot of interesting and exciting projects on the site! I hope someday i can help the community with my own ideas I'm also interested in PLC, FPGAs and robotics, but as a student now i just own LP, a pickit2 and the eZ430-Chronos watch from TI, it's very cool! My only finished project is a controller board for our rolling gate, but im planning to rebuild it with some valueline chip, because the PIC in it is a little overkill :mrgreen: and the whole board
  16. Hello guys! I need help with the launchpad. I've read the datasheets and manuals but it's still not clear to me that how can I use it to program a uC for example on my breadboard. I dont want to remove it and place into launchpad every time. Can somebody please tell me which pins I have to connect to program the external chip and do i have the remove the one in the launchpad or can i program 2 at a time? Thanks! And greetings from Hungary
