  1. RFC: CNC BoosterPack

    I put IC's on the board center position without breaking (too much) ground layer with other lines. Better heating dispersion and easier connection / layout with other components.
  2. MSP430F5529 USB HID Example for Energia

    There is C open source TI USB stack with examples (with one that you need is included)... http://software-dl.ti.com/msp430/msp430_public_sw/mcu/msp430/MSP430_USB_Developers_Package/latest/index_FDS.html Supported by CCS or IAR, not Energia.
  3. MSP432E4

    I already commented here... http://forum.43oh.com/topic/10502-msp432p4111-what-do-we-know-about-it-so-far/?do=findComment&comment=78452 that don't see link with MSP430 family anymore.
  4. MSP432P4111: What do we know about it so far?

    MSP432P401/4111 is without USB, with 1.6 - 3.7V VCC range, similar to MSP430. MSP432E is with USB, but VCC is 3 - 3.6V, nothing for me here. EDIT: Also noticed that 432P401/4111 still have ports (some with mapping option) similar to MSP430, 432E don't.
  5. Does Energia support JTAG?

    You just need to edit configuration (text) files, and then Energia will call external CLI application (MSP430-Flasher) for downloading code. Interface between TI FET an target device will be handled by MSP430-Flasher that will automatically detect connected FET, not by Energia anymore. Downloading code will be done by upload button on original / unmodified Interface, simple as it is. It is all explained here, but instead my flasher, command line parameters for MSP430-Flasher should be used.
  6. Does Energia support JTAG?

    AFAIK, any LP is with virtual com port, that is not needed by Energia. I didn't noticed any Energia popup with something like "missing virtual com port", when there was no virtual com port available. As I allready noted, I don't see any problems related to downloading code by SBW with MSP430-Flasher by any LP. Problem is in missing Energia header / library files for unsupported devices.
  7. Does Energia support JTAG?

    There is low-cost (14$) FR2311 LP with open (software / hardware) source and updatable eZ-FET Lite on board, with FR2311 as target. However, on-board eZ-FET Lite can program / debug also other off-board devices, by SBW, with removed jumpers between LP master and target section. http://www.ti.com/tool/MSP-EXP430FR2311 If you don't want LP (because of some special reason), and to use a TI FET, that is not supported inside Energia, there is CLI tool MSP430-Flasher that can be called by Energia (on any OS), for downloading firmware. It is up to date and and support all TI tools. http://www.ti.com/tool/MSP430-Flasher I done this for my flasher without any problems, and MSP430-Flasher can be integrated on the similar way. http://forum.43oh.com/topic/9337-where-do-i-find-the-script-that-runs-after-clicking-upload/ However, I don't know if your device (FR2311) is by default supported in Energia. This is not related to downloading firmware, that should work just fine.
  8. J-Link EDU Mini at USD18

    It is a clone-killer, obviously. However, in this type of PCB / USB connection I prefer on board integrated type, and not this one that is easily breakable.
  9. Stand alone software/hardware solution, that is working on any Linux I tried, and can be integrated in Energia. http://forum.43oh.com/topic/9337-where-do-i-find-the-script-that-runs-after-clicking-upload/?do=findComment&comment=76641
  10. Taking a Class on MSP430s

    MSP430F51x2 are 5V tolerant. FET-430UIF is stone age device, extremely slow, with FET same as on G2 LP. TI is working right now on hardware revision of MSP-FET, so if you want to buy one, be sure that this one is with new hardware revision. For low cost entry to MSP430 world, my advice is always for MSP430F5529 LP with updatable and open software / hardware design. Never for old and slow, closed and not updatable G2 LP (or any other board version with integrated this old FET).
  11. BTW, there is SD card open source example for MSP430F5529 inside TI USB stack (http://www.ti.com/tool/msp430usbdevpack). It is possible to plug MSP430F5529 by USB to PC and device will be enumerated as disk, with log file on it, that can be opened by notepad.
  12. It is working fine on OS X, after "boards.txt" and "platform.txt" update, located at Energia.app/Contents/Java/hardware/energia/msp430/ and copied flash to Energia.app/Contents/Java/hardware/tools/msp430/bin/
  13. I guess that this is OS related, because on Ubuntu, flasher log is present.
  14. Files are located at "energia-1.6.10E18\hardware\energia\msp430". I add my flasher to "programmers.txt" sbwplus.name=sbwplus sbwplus.protocol=sbwplus and to "platform.txt" # sbwplus tools.sbwplus.upload.params.verbose= tools.sbwplus.upload.params.quiet= tools.sbwplus.path={runtime.tools.mspdebug.path} tools.sbwplus.cmd.path={path}/bin/flash tools.sbwplus.upload.pattern={cmd.path} -f "{build.path}/{build.project_name}.hex" -e -w -v flash.exe is copied to bin dir. I tried to uplad blink sketch to msp430g2553 with "Upload Using Programmer", but this faild with "missing program.tool configuration parameter". After I modified in "boards.txt", MSP-EXP430G2553LP.upload.tool from mspdebug to sbwplus, device is flashed with "Upload". I checked outside of Energia, and device was flashed corectly. Is there any way for enabling Energia to display inside black cmd window, output from my flash.exe that is standard cmd application. Like here... What is line in hex file generated from blink example, before file end, 4 bytes located at address 0? :10FFF00068C068C0B0C168C068C068C068C000C0E0 :040000030000C00039 :00000001FF EDIT: OK, I found that record type 03 is used as start segment address related to 80x86 processors. Don't know about relation with MSP430 (value C000h?). AFAIK, IAR doesn't generate this.
  15. Where is this configuration text file? BTW, I am using Windows version, 1.6.10E18.
