  1. Got a electrical Heater for the cars 12V-Plug now with about 150 Watt - "hot is something else" - but this is exactly what i expected from only 150 Watt... and it is enough to support the Window-Defroster so that the snow slowly melts.
  2. Of course you will have to use permanent +12V. Most Cars have this but it often has only a small Fuse like 10 Amps. So it will be better to connect a own (thicker) Cable directly to the +12V-pin of the Battery and Fuse it with 30-50A depending on the Consumption of your Heater. Adding the heated Seat sounds like an nice Idea. Should be no Problem to control more than one Output by the MCU. Mine gets hot in less than 30 Seconds so i wont need this My Seat-Heater only turns on when the Key is in Position "1" so i would have to manipulate the Power-Connection for it a bit. First i wil
  3. Hey there, it has been a while since my last project - and i didn't finish it till now. Since i got employed there is only a little time left for projects like these :shifty: Cause it is getting cold here and i don't want to sit in a cold car every morning when driving to work i had the idea for this small project. Spontaneously i ordered an Siemens TC35i - GSM - Module on ebay for 25
  4. I still haven't received my Stellaris Launchpad ... Order placed on 8/31/2012 ... Anyone else having the same troubles?
  5. Here's my example for communication over USB-CDC based on the TI example: /*** Standard-Includes ***/ #include "stdbool.h" /*** USB-Includes ***/ #include "USB_config/descriptors.h" #include "USB_API/types.h" #include "USB_API/device.h" #include "USB_API/usb.h" #include "USB_API/UsbCdc.h" #include "usbConstructs.h" /*** HAL-Includes ***/ #include "F5510/HAL_UCS.h" #include "F5510/HAL_PMM.h" /*** USB-Variables ***/ // Flag set by event handler to indicate data has been received into USB buffer volatile BYTE bCDCDataReceived_event = false; #define BUFFER_SIZE 64 char
  6. hmm... seems like the bots got intelligent over the last years ... * another try would be to use the questions - but don't render them as text - provide them as an image - i know many bots use text-recognition but you may confuse them a bit * to make it even more complicated: give out a fake-question in plain text and lets have it the same color or hide it so the user won't see it ... then give out the correct question you want the user to answer in an image and give it a class, name, alt, title that doesn't allow the bot to conclude it is used as something lika a "captcha" * maybe
  7. What about these standard things? * is there no AKISMET-Plugin available? * normal graphical captcha * a small calculation (1 + 2 = ?, 4 * 3 = ?) * Colors (Which color has the water, grass, blood, beer, sky, ... ) * Pictures (show 4 pictures and tell the user to select for example "the apple" out of this set) * a simple task for the user ... something like that: http://webdesignledger.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/11/currybet.jpg
  8. What error-message do you get? Try it on another port and try another cable. One of my cables was broken and i also had problems with long usb-cables.
  9. Maybe you can use a extra plugin for SEO, esp. one with mod_rewrite-rules that includes titles in the link. You don't need to move the forum - just add a new subdomain "forum.43oh.com" and set it to "/forum" ... everything will stay accessible i think the links will get lost anyway when switching to ipboard
  10. You should also set some more keywords and a better description: Some more keywords: Motor, Servo, LED, RX/TX, UART, USB, Ethernet, SPI, ISP, Spy-by-wire, SBW, bluetooth, shop, microcontroller, avr, mega, atmega, compiler, Controller, MCU, Board, JTAG, Debugger, Programmer, Embedded, Hardware, Development ... maybe repeat some category-titles You use Google Analytics? It should show you where the users come from and what they were looking for (keywords and searchengines they where using - you can use these for building a pool of keywords) Maybe you also want to use subdom
  11. nice idea also often used SHL for multiplication with 2 and SHR for division by 2
  12. Anyone got a datasheet? How bright are they compared to others (OSRAM, KingBright, whatever...)? I would also be in for GB when i have more information - might be an alternative for the TLC 5940 and my AmbiLight-Project
  13. Still no delivery times given in my order -will have to wait a bit longer for shipping to germany
  14. Let's concentrate on the problem: The Fault-Flag wont dissappear ... Same issue after stripping all unnecessary lines of code
  15. Why use DCO if you have the peripherals already onboard? As RobG stated above the external XTAL is more precise (compared to DCO without FLL). I don't have an oscilloscope here so i can't check if DCO with FLL is comparable to XTAL. The temperature drift of the internal clock-generators is higher then the drift of the crystal. I know that the USB-PLL is not related to the other clocks of the
  16. The example works fine - but it only runs at 8 MHz using the DCO and FLL - it is not clocked by the XT2
  17. I already figured this out I thought about initializing USB myself by setting the registers manually - but using the HAL is way easier and better when switching to another device. I already made the following changes to the "descriptor.h" and USB is working fine! #define USB_MCLK_FREQ 24000000 #define USB_PLL_XT 2 #define USB_XT_FREQ USBPLL_SETCLK_24_0 I dont use the internal DCO so i don't need to set up the FLL because there is no need anymore to stabilize the clock. However USB is working fine. I already set up communication between
  18. Thank you, no i don't use this provider - my provider is one that has his office near my home so i can reach them when problems occur Someone has more tips for me? Who else uses the MSP430F5510 or the Development board of RobG?
  19. The NOP's where located in the interrupt routine and had no use (the example also works completely without the interrupt-part): switch (__even_in_range(SYSUNIV, SYSUNIV_BUSIFG)) { case SYSUNIV_NONE: // __no_operation(); break; USB-Initialization and Communication is working fine without them Actually the following minimalistic example works fine - only the XT2 is raising OSC-faults and i dont know why /*** Standard-Includes ***/ #include "stdbool.h" /*** USB-Includes ***/ #include "USB_config/descriptors.h" #include "USB_API/types.h" #include "USB_API/device.h"
  20. No UART - reading them directly over the CDC-API. I already had a look into the Eventhandling in the examples - but they poll permanently for incomming data. I will check the USBisr later because this actually has no priority to me - first i want to get it running and understand what to do RobG's board has an 24 MHz external oscillator that i use for clocking the CPU (MCLK). I figured out that i don't need the FLL when using the external crystal to clock the CPU. Exactly this is the Problem - not everything is covered there and the examples provided in the USB_Dev_Package a
  21. Hi, i got RobG's development board some days ago and started playing with it. Soon i have discovered some points that i don't understand... I started with RobG's UART-example and modified it a little bit. The changes that i made so far: 1. It now runs at 24 MHz (clocked by XT2) 2. stripped some unneccessary NOP's (no operation) 3. inlined some functions for initialization and handling /*** USB-Includes ***/ #include "USB_config/descriptors.h" #include "USB_API/types.h" #include "USB_API/device.h" #include "USB_API/usb.h" #include "USB_API/UsbCdc.h" #include "usbConstructs.h
  22. It has been a long while ago since my last update to this project. But i am back and the project is still alive! Latest updates have been made to use the MSP430F5510 and the inbuilt USB-CDC so the next generation needs less components and offers faster update-rates. now i have more space left for other features so i will try to implement some other useful functions
  23. Edit: Found the problem - I needed to include the c-Files in the project - everything works fine now
  24. The FRAm can be declared as code or data and the linker does this in most cases for you have a look at the Sources for the FRAM-Exp.-Board (slac492a) - they are using a pointer and increase it with every loop where the StartAdress is somewhere after the code /********************************************************************** * @brief Performs 512 byte FRAM Write * @param StartAddress: For FRAM Write * @return none *************************************************************************/ void FRAM_Write(unsigned int StartAddress) { unsigned long *FRAM_write_ptr; unsigned long d
  25. Thanks, i ordered one i am really interested in some other boards but needed to stop myself ... one project after another and i have the AmbientLight going on right now
