  1. I want to give this thread a bump in the hopes that someone has been doing more with this boosterpack. Unfortunately several of the links on this board are now dead (after all, it has been awhile ;-)


    Food for thought, this booster pack on one of the newer launchpads with Ethernet might make a great network time server.

  3. Here is a link to the course: http://www.element14.com/community/community/learning-center/online-learning/moocs/ti-valparaiso-udemy


    "Shorten your learning curve for the Texas Instruments MSP430 and Code Composer Studio integrated development environment. This course will use the same mixed-mode format as conducted in lecture-laboratories at Valparaiso University. It is devised and presented by Valparaiso University's College of Engineering. Their engineering program ranks among the top 30 in the US."


  4. Have you considered adding the ability to graph the data from the MSP430 in addition to displaying the value? With the ability to graph values vs time it could function as a low bandwidth oscilloscope and logic analyzer.

  5. I just got an email from TI today talking about "TI and Temboo are Building the Internet of Things". more here: http://e2e.ti.com/group/launchyourdesign/b/blog/archive/2014/09/10/ti-and-temboo-are-building-the-internet-of-things


    The announcement seems to be short on details, but does state "Temboo now comes bundled into the latest release of the Energia IDE, meaning that you can use Temboo to turn connected LaunchPads into multifunctional, intelligent IoT devices!"


    Has anyone tried this and how did it work out for you?

  6. That will be slick!  I wonder what kind of range it will have, I have wanted a US sensor for my water storage tank.  Just went the cheap route and have a few level switches, I have a couple other applications that I could use it on also!


    As to the range, TI ran tests on a column of water 876 mm (just over 34 inches) high with a maximum error of 1.7% at any intermediate level, typically much less. See: http://www.ti.com/lit/ug/tidu616/tidu616.pdf
