  1. I'm interested as well. Please post update PS: was at the Faire and the game of drones was probably the biggest attraction. My son didn't want to leave so I had to stay with him and watch the fights.
  2. Yikes!!! I almost did not win. Now that the pressure is off, time to go finish my project and have fun. Congrats to the winners.
  3. Is this the last entry From the time I started playing with msp430 micro controllers, I've built all kinds of things for my own pleasure. In this endeavor, I'm trying to "domoticize" by home. I want to automate and connect to the cloud: a set of IP Cameras(only one for now), my garage door, my thermostat and a set of remote sensors, and my sprinkler system. The sprinkler is an Opensprinkler that I connected to a raspberry Pi. The IP Camera is a Logitech USB camera attached to the RPi usb Port. motion has been installed and configured to display camera on web page The garage Door is connected via a simple transistor/relay system to GPIO25 of the RPi. Remote Temperature sensors are transmitting data using cheap 433mhz modules. A sensor node is made of a MSP430G2553, a DS18B20, and a transmitter. Communication is one way. The receiver is connected to GPIO24 on the RPi. The thermostat is a little more involved that the other pieces, and I'm still working on that. For now, I'm able to remotely open and close my garage door, check the camera, get temperature data from the sensor, all using very simplistic scripts. I have been able to make a basic web interface to access all those devices using python and flask. I'm looking forward to leveraging all the power of HTML5 to build a more interesting web interface for mobile devices. The documentation of the overall project is still being worked on.
  4. Hi, How is this board different from B# Booster boosterpack ? Is it all about the gauge? I mean to me the BQ24210 looks very similar in functionality to the MCP73831! Just a noob observation ...
  5. I received mine Friday. I got it with also with a broken "Down" button that I'll be fixing by the end of the day. Then will follow a series of experiments in the 433 MHz range and I will post what I come up with. Thanks again to B# and TI for making this possible.
  6. Can I add my modest contribution? I would like to add three (3) Li-Ion 3.7v 1150mAh batteries to the prize pool. Will Post the pictures as soon as I get home tonight. I have used it in a project using schematics and parts of the LiPo boosterpack. It charges and works perfectly. I can share the Kicad schematics with the community when needed. A picture of all three batteries.
  7. Willcomen, I'm more impressed by what you were able to do with fritzing. I actually built my first board using it but quickly outgrew it. I went on to learn Kicad and have made 2 other boards for personal project since then. I'll highly recommend you make the transition to kicad as it's FREE, unlimited in features and very flexible. You'll love it. In addition, the success I have had on my personal projects is a consequence of the help I had on this forum over time. Welcome again and enjoy it.
  8. Hi Butterworth, I once was a freshman noob in MSP430 and I recently graduated to be a senior noob : :grin: Don't ask me what the difference is! All I can say is that by hanging out with all the geniuses around this place you'll get very far. Welcome.
  9. Thanks to TI for the kits, B#, Let me know what you need for shipping. Will paypal you asap.

  11. It sure does feel good I calculated that being active 2s and on standby 58sec, my 400mA 9v battery will last approx 4days. Which is very poor. Since both the msp430 and the radio have low power options, what do you recommend I use for power conversion if I want to stay low power? Looking at the second iteration of the board already. Couple of things that I'd like to integrate: Rx/Tx pins/pads for easy debugging try smaller footprints to further reduce the size of the board. This would have to wait though. Very busy with school and work for now. Thanks to everybody for your comments.
  12. Hi, Finally found the time to populate the board and test it. Everything worked as planned. Programmed it using another LP as seen in the picture. Then added 9v battery and set it up outside. Tested current consumption using my "poor quality" multimeter. In active mode, it uses 8.42mA and 3.65 mA in standby. I don' know why this feel like too much current ... Maybe it is. Now working on elaborating the code.
  13. Thought about bending the pins and did try. Doesn't look good but would work. I'm moving ahead with the idea.
