  1. Hi, I confirm this library and the examples work with the cheap 433 MHz modules like this one : http://www.icstation.com/product_info.php?products_id=1402 I don't know what are your modules... Yan.
  2. Hi Mau, Usually, mixing 5V and 3,3V parts withtout level converter is not recommended. By example the 5V part may need to see 3,2V to consider it as HIGH, while the the 3,3V will put out a 3,1V signal at max. The 5V part outputs putting 5V into the MSP430 inputs may also fry the latter. It can work, I am successfully driving a 5V AD9850 with a 3,3V MSP430G2553, but you need to carefully check the "compatibility". Regards, Yan. --- http://xv4y.radioclub.asia/
  3. Hi, Great work Jean-Yves. Thanks for sharing your code. I have no time to work on MSP430 right now being busy with other micro-controllers projects and a website development (http://www.qscope.org/). However, I will give it a try as soon as possible. 73, Yan - XV4Y.
  4. Hi, That's a solution. A dirty one, but still a solution. As Graham suggested, you might have a "case sensitive" problem in your "libraries" directory. Floating around between OS X (which is case sensitive or not depending on how you ask him), other UNIXes and Windows, it's a developer's nightmare to properly handle every case. Yan.
  5. Hi, Have you downloaded the RTCPlus lib by Grahamf72 and put it in a libraries sub-directory in the Energia sketch directory ? Refer to this thread for more details : http://forum.43oh.com/topic/3375-energia-library-msp430-real-time-clock/ Regards, Yannick.
  6. Hi Rei Vilo, Nice write-up. Unfortunately the MSP430 is not at 4,30$ anymore. 9,99$ whit shipping included is still a bargain but not as attractive as before. I was lucky to stock a pile of box before the price increase but now I must be remaining only a few units... time to re-stock soon. Regards, Yan.
  7. Hi, Which file do you use for the library. Where did you downloaded it. I remember having the same error because in one library (which one ???) some debug code containing serial.print was left. Try to track the "TimerSerial" in the library you use and disable it... Yan.
  8. Hi, My port of the VirtualWire lib is working on the G2452. It seems that the original author has included some of my mods but not tested it. At the end of the following thread there is the code I am actually using on my remote weather station sensor project : [Energia Library] VirtualWire 1.10 library ported to MSP430/Energia Regards, Yan.
  9. Oups... wrong thread. Sorry for the inconvenience...
  10. Hi all, It seems that the original author as merged my code but not tested it compiling nor working. This my original port that works on G2553 and G2452. http://xv4y.radioclub.asia/ftp/VirtualWire110_Energia_XV4Y.zip Yan.
  11. Yes very useful. I think you have made some updated but I stick with an old version since it works well for me. I will check the updates later but I still have some stuff I want to put in my own code before. Yan.
  12. Hi, This will ring a bell to radioamateurs (HAM radio) but other may just ignore... I have posted to my blog a code for a simple VFO (Variable Frequency Oscillator) or better said an RF frequency generator using an AD9850 DDS chip. This code is simple and has no special trick but might give you inspiration. http://xv4y.radioclub.asia/2013/03/19/code-source-vfo-avec-dds-ad9850ad9851-et-launchpad-msp430/ The pins are "wired" for my WSPR agile beacon generator kit, but everything can be changed to your taste or needs. The text of the blog article is in french but has no additional
  13. Hi guys, I am a bit far from the forum now... busy working somehow. Robert, if you need a mirror I have free data space for you on my professional hosting accounts. My website are hosted by OVH, the number one host in Europe. I can give you a private FTP login+pwd so you can upload by yourself. The base URL will be like energia.radioclub.asia but it may be mirror.energia.nu if you can create a sub-domain and have it pointed to the OVH servers. Regards, Yan.
  14. Hi Rei Vilo, Ok for you backing this. Sorry if I was a bit paranoid. Then I will blank my previous comment if it is irrelevant. Yan.
  15. I had unpredictable hardware serial port issues when I when using too much RAM... Try to reduce the RAM (not Flash) usage and see if it works. Yan.
  16. Being on OS X this does not apply to me however I would not download and install "flashy" packages from someone who has only 1 post on the forum. This package is not open source anymore and you have no way to check it does not include any virus or bloatware. That's just my own opinion and I would be pleased to be demonstrated this package is safe and has a true value for its user... Curiouser and curiouser, the author claims to have published the source code but this leads to an empty page. Please moderators have a loot at it. Yan.
  17. Hi Graham, Sorry but I just came to read your message. I have been busy those last days working, and now it is New Year holidays and my two children are at home wanting me to spend some time with them. I will try to have a look at what you have done and then publish "our" library on my website. It could be in more than a week unfortunately but I will try to do it ASAP. I am currently writing a logger weather station. However I prefered to use an Arduino Nano with one DS1307 module because : - the ATMega328 as 1k EEPROM for saving measurements - it has 2ko RAM allowing me
  18. Hi folks, Well the first sRTC lib was quickly written for Energia 006 which did not have the P2_6 and P2_7 forced to GPIO and the ACLK set to VLO. Energia is still in early development stage, and my library was waiting for someone like Grahamf72 to improve it. Someone (sorry I forgot who) suggested some modifications to my library for "code cleanliness". I've done the mods and added a ++ operator. It is neat indeed, but uses slightly more Flash worst slightly more RAM. We have not that much RAM on the MSP430 so personally I prefer to use the Inc_chunk routine directly. Perhaps I ne
  19. Hi, Usually for my MSP430 projects as cheap LCD I prefer the Nokia 5110 compatible d
  20. Hi, On Arduino you must use PROGRAMSPACE to store the large vector constant in Flash. MSP430 is more efficient about the constants handling. You can leave PGMSPACE and use constants instead, it should work. That said, although I built an audio spectrum scope on Arduino and offer it as a kit, I have not dug enough in the FFT lib to be sure you will port it to Energia easily. The sampling must be done differently too, because on the AVR you put the ADC in "free running" mode to reduce the sampling delay. Something similar may be available on MSP430 but the command to issue to the MC
  21. Mike McCauley, the original author, has added the missing files in the new 1.13 release... Yan.
  22. Good work. I will have to dig in to LPM soon for my remote Temp/Hum. sensor soon... Yan.
  23. Amen Graham,<br />Even more, most MCU now are somewhat "optimized" for C and compilers do a very good job. Of course you can still get a little improvement with assembler if you are good at it, but at what cost. By the way, modern assemblers relies on a lot of macros and pre-processor directives that make them somewhere in the middle between low-level and hi-level.<br />I think one reason for discarding Energia in front of CCS is that Energia is not an "industry standard" as may be CCS. Professional developer could prefer CCS because it has a better "project management".<br />
  24. Hi, I have updated the package on my download page : http://xv4y.radioclub.asia/boutique/docs/ Yan.
  25. Here the last "library pack" I uploaded : http://xv4y.radioclub.asia/ftp/libraries_Energia_xv4y_20130109.zip
