  1. Id love one of these, they look so cool.. Especially the black. Im in the UK too so no worries about Import Tax (I have something sitting in the post office I had to pay
  2. Hey, bh. Just a thought. Is there any chance you could throw in one of the freebie launchpad pcbs with my order please? Will be fun to take a closer look at.<br />Ta<br />Dan<br />
  3. There is indeed. I'm on my phone at the moment so I can't check where. But its in the project properties, arm linker sections. I think by default its set to 256 bytes. I usually set it to 2048 bytes as a minimum.
  4. Paid $35.13 (Module + PCB)...Fee paid.. Thanks for arranging the Groupbuy B#

  6. Hi Potatochan, looking at your code the problem you have is not to do with the for loop (which you are using as a software delay) but with the fact that your port isn't in a "known state".. In pseudo code you have.... Put the WatchDogTimer on hold.. (Tell the watch dog.. Go on hold. If you don't do this your 430 will reset regularly) Tell the 430 that in Port 1 bits 0 and 6 are used for output. Loop forever Toggle bit 6 of port 1 If the LED on bit 6 is on turn it off, if its off turn it on count to 5000 Counting is purely as a delay Tog
  7. You could try running the test code I wrote a while back. It runs the ADC and DCO at a variety of speeds and ADC settings. It then uses the UART to tell you how many samples it managed and tells you what the highest and lowest readings were. Anyway the link is http://forum.43oh.com/topic/892-adc10-speed-tests-using-hardware-uart/ You can see my test readings. You could see if yours are of a similar stability. Hope this helps. Dan
  8. Grats cube. Have fun and don't forget to share your findings. Dan Sent from my GT-I8160 using Tapatalk 2
  9. As far as I'm aware there is not much you can do about that. Hibernate mode basically removes power to the main core of the CPU and so the debugger loses track of it. I'd love to be proven wrong and have someone chip in with "you just have to do xyz" cause I have had issues with the same thing. Depending on why you want to hibernate though you may find sleep or deep sleep mode sufficient (at least for debugging purposes) Dan
  10. I don't use energia so I may be way off track here but the chip is the lm4f120H5qr (note the H in the part number) the include file you are looking for doesn't have that h. This may give you a clue as to what to look for. As I say though I don't use energy's and have never installed it so that may be what the h file should be called. Dan
  11. I don't use energia so I'm not too familiar with its ins and outs. But what I did notice is in your void setup() routine you loop but inside it you use pinmode(Sen......) not pinmode(Sen.........) So you could easily be reading floating pins as this is where you set pullups. Sent from my GT-I8160 using Tapatalk 2
  12. You can do it with 2 female to female jumper wires. I soldered wires across 2 lots of 2 female headers making a 2x2 block with wires soldered across. This is neat and unobtrusive. The only non solder job I can think of though is 2 crossed f2f jumper wires. Have a great Christmas. Dan Sent from my GT-I8160 using Tapatalk 2
  13. Yup. That's the one I was thinking of. Thanks for doing the link hunting. Sent from my GT-I8160 using Tapatalk 2
  14. Just a quick thought. You *can* run the 2231s at 16mhz. There is a forum thread about calibrating the missing values (on phone ATM so can't search easily). To use them you also need to edit the header file for the 2231 which I seem to remember is also in the forum thread. Sounds like a fun booster. Can't comment much more though as I haven't successfully played with i2c. Good luck. Dan Sent from my GT-I8160 using Tapatalk 2
  15. I have CVS (5.2) debugging nicely on Linux. Not at the pc ATM so going from memory. Start CVS from the command line and you get more debugging messages. Go to program the device then swap back to the shell window. For me there were 2 missing shared libs. A ftdi one (available from their website) and something like libusb-1.so. these both had to be 32 bit on my 64 but system. After putting these in place the next error I had was regarding permissions so I had to create a udev rule. Once I had done all this it all works great. I can program, single step and use breakpoints. The only is
  16. That would be cool. I have a ton of stuff from the 1st mindstorms. Top of my head there must be 3 or 4 add on kits plus main kit. Not touched it for years but I seem to remember that getting the ir tower (old serial one not the USB) working was tons of hassle. So for me^h^h my son a mindstorms booster would be awesome.

  17. I don't have one of these LCDs but at the top he says Full port B used.. So I would read those as GPIO_PIN_1 is PB1 and so on..
  18. Ouch Larsie, that sucks... Mine shipped a few days early and arrived Friday (the original shipping date).. I opened it this morning (gotta love it when Wife goes to her mums for the day:) ).. Sofar all I have managed to do is get the toolchains working under linux. CCS5.2, 32Bit libusb-1 and libftd2xx.so libraries installed, an XML connection file and a udev rule was all it eventually took though It took me longer to do than reading that would imply Project0 is currently flashing red and blue at me as I type. Time for a coffee and some serious reading I think Cheers, D
  19. One other place where I buy things online in the UK is http://bitsbox.co.uk flat shipping of £1.75. Always had next day delivery (when not ordered on a weekend.. then it arrives Tue).. They are reasonably priced for most of the bits Ive gone there for, bit I mainly go there when I need staples and don't have the patience for China shipping.
  20. Yay.. mine was supposed to ship 11/9 but got the shipped email this morning. On its way to Holland according to DHL tracking (Im in the UK) so may get it this week.
  21. Yeah.. Just looked again myself.. And the price is back to $4.99.. I did look in the estore earlier though and if it wasn't for the pic posted earlier by ike Id be doubting my sanity And yes, my expected shipping date is 9th Nov...
  22. Wow.. have you noticed from that the price is now $12.99... and still marked as a promotional price. Im glad I got my order in when I did.. Still a good price though.. just not as good as $5
  23. Ive installed CCS5 under linux and compile them from in there.. To get the code to the board I use MSPDEBUG from the command line. If I need to debug then I fire up a VM with XP on it and debug from there. The C2000 Launchpad works a dream under linux with full debugging support so as support for the 430 launchpad under linux is planned Im looking forwards to that. I have no idea on time-scales though so anyone any better ideas? Dan
  24. Mine arrived this morning (UK) so yay.. Thanks for that... Makes up for the other news I received. My stellaris launchpad order was updated today. My estimated shipping date is now 9th November Haven't had time to mess about with the GPS booster yet but looking forward to it. So thanks for arranging this and shipping so quickly BH. Dan
