Philipp got a reaction from BattleaxeAU in Stellaris LaunchPad
I just stumbled across TI's Stellaris Launchpad Tool Folder and found the User Guide: [tipdf]spmu289[/tipdf]
There are some PCB photos, schematics, block diagrams and alot of additional information in it, might be interesting for you guys.

I just stumbled across TI's Stellaris Launchpad Tool Folder and found this Design Guide in the documents section:
BoosterPack Development Guide
This could be useful to make your boosters compatible with all the existing Launchpads

it worked for me, but the first time i tried it, there wasn't even a 'Add to cart' button.
you have to use the eStore link i provided above. If there is no order button, my best guess is that they are slowly activating it for different countries.

First batch ready for shipping.
The board will come with unsoldered headers and switches and will look assembled like the one top center (that one is going to Energia folks, board #1 )
The cost for the kit will be $55.10... just kidding, $15.
Hope you enjoy it.
Philipp got a reaction from Rei Vilo in LaunchPad Pin Assignment
It should be easy to integrate the schematic into Energia, but propably not the way you meant.
When you create a sketch xyz.pde in Wiring, you can add a xyz.png image file to the sketch folder and Wiring will open this image if you click on the schematic button. I think this would totally work with Energia, but it is not very useful for hardware reference or pinouts, because there has to be an individual schematic for every single sketch.
However I'm the same opinion as you, a pinout reference or a schematic within the IDE would be very handy.
Wiring does this aswell, and it does it in a very neat looking way:
Short time after i did the current Energia theme Robert asked me if I would like to redesign the Reference aswell to fit Energia and the TI MCUs. I think I'll start with a mockup of a hardware reference page, combining the best of the Arduino and Wiring universes and including photos aswell as schematics like SeuPey's one for Launchpad and Olimexino as soon as it is officially supported.
I'll keep you tuned
Philipp reacted to Rickta59 in energia device support
At this time, with Energia 101E0008, the most power chip supported is the msp430g2553.
In the works are the msp430fr5739 you find in the fraunchpad board. This chip has 16K of FRAM and 1K of RAM. However because it is FRAM you can use it like RAM allowing you a lot more flexibility. The code to make it work with Energia is in the "fraunchpad" branch and should be part of the master soon.
After we get the frauchpad in the master branch and tested, we will start looking at the msp430f5510 you find in the recent Olimex board. http://www.mouser.com/olimex-olimexino5510/
The problem with those older msp430F1xx chips is that they don't use SBW (Spy-Bi-Wire) which is 2 wire JTAG used with the launchpad. To program those older chips would require BSL or real 4 wire JTAG. I don't see any of those older chips being on the top of the porting list. Another reason to not use those chips is because they are more expensive, slower and less capable than the msp430f5xxx chips that replaced them.
Philipp reacted to Rickta59 in Do you want a linux binary distribution?
Yes to compile change to the build directory and type "ant clean build run"
@blund You should give msp430-4.6.3 a try. The header files for the msp430g2231 chip changed between 4.5.3 and 4.6.3. The blink code does compile with either version of the compiler if you are using the larger chips. It seems like a lot of people trying this out recently are using the older launchpad with an msp430g2231 chip. More time has been spent getting the g2452 and g2553 chips to work as they have a a bit more memory and two Timers instead of one. You might want to sample an msp430g2553 chip or just spend another $4.30 and get a newer V1.5 launchpad that come with the msp430g2553 and msp430g2452 chips.
Philipp reacted to energia in Expanding device-support for Energia
Support for Fraunchpad (MSP-EXP430FR5739) is scheduled for the next release. More details on the next release will be posted on the Energia wiki. Once that is in place adding other F5XXX based boards such as the OLIMEXINO-5510 and the MSP430F5172 based Padrino (viewtopic.php?f=9&t=1995) will be a breeze.
Philipp reacted to Hekebit in Regards and thanks
I have just discovered this project and it has looked to me the perfect union of the facility of use of the arduino IDE with the characteristics and very good promotion of the launchpad.
Thank you to the people of "Energia project" and thanks for your work.
Regards from Spain.
Philipp reacted to energia in New Energia release 0101E0008 - 08/06/2012
After 3 months of hard work by the Energia team, Energia release 0101E0008 - 08/06/201 it is finally here! A full list of new features and bug fixes can be found in the release notes posted here: https://github.com/energia/Energia/wiki/Release-Notes.
The release is available for download @ https://github.com/energia/Energia/downloads.
Thanks to all the users of Energia for supporting us and providing us with invaluable feedback!
Thanks to the Energia team members @RickKimball, @rei-vilo, @pbrier, @clyvb, @pasky, @stsongas, @soojinhan and @blue for all the hard work and making this possible.
Special thanks to @bluehash letting us host the forum here on 43oh to support the Energia users.
Enjoy the new release!
Philipp reacted to Rickta59 in Do you want a linux binary distribution?
I'm wondering if there are people out there who have thought about using Energia on linux but when they couldn't find a binary distribution stopped looking? If you would like to see a binary distribution, what linux distribution are you running ubuntu, debian or something else? Is it 64 bit or 32bit? Do you already have the latest msp430-gcc ( 4.6.3 ) or (4.5.3) ? If you don't have a gcc compiler would you want it bundled?
I personally run ubuntu 11.04 32 bit with the latest 4.6.3 compiler.
Philipp got a reaction from energia in Arduino 1.x.x theme for Energia (just more red!)
Black text for the tabs looks way better, thanks!
Anti Aliasing and ClearType are enabled.
I had some difficulties to change the editor font and to enable anti aliasing for the editor itself.
Wiring, Arduino and Energia use the Processing IDE, and this for some reason has a pretty clear theme.txt config file which defines the appereance of everything except the editor, and a more general and obscure preferences.txt located in another folder.
It took me some time to figure out why the heck the Consolas font in the console looked perfectly fine but was aliased in the editor. Turned out that the theme itself is anti-aliased by default, the editor is not! You can however enable it in the preferences.txt to make Consolas way nicer to read.
I think I will submit this theme to the git, and I may also write a short tutorial on how to change the appereance on all the Processing based IDEs, if people are interested

Getting the contrast right is quite fiddly when you're working with only a few variations of red, but i tried my best to improve it without adding pink to the color scheme
The preview image has slightly different colors and contrast than the original, please click it to view the original image.
Philipp reacted to juani_c in Stellaris LaunchPad
Not much info yet, just the price; a $4.99 kit. :clap:
EDIT1: Found an LCD boosterpack for this board http://www.kentecdisplay.com/uploads/so ... ide_03.pdf
EDIT2: by the name of the boosterpack It looks like there will be one of the LM4F120 Series
