  1. x64 is x86 with 64 bit extensions developed by AMD. Technically speaking, the processor boots up in 16 bit mode, and the boot loader can remain 16 bit, or transition to 32 or 64 bit.
  2. Apple = x86 / x64 / ARM [phone/pad only on ARM] Windows = x86 / x64 / ARM Linux / Android[dubious] = x86 / x64 / ARM umm? [feel free to correct]
  3. File a bug report on https://github.com/energia/Energia/issues github account is required Otherwise, post the issue here, how to reproduce it, a work-around if you have one, and tag @@energia
  4. One MCU, the G2553, has a lot of bells and whistles. The other, the G2452 is a little restricted. I suggest you look at the datasheets for the chips so you can learn about the differences between them, and then learn how to chose which of those, or maybe any of the many other MSP430 chips, to use to best fill what you want to do. Something worthy of note, is that the Launchpads can act as programmers for most every other MSP430 chip. So the G2 Launchpad can program nearly every other MSP430 out there- no need for a bootloader to be installed on a target chip, like some others require
  5. What code have you written already?
  6. BMP180 is a barometric pressure sensor and does not have the range to measure tire inflation.
  7. Sounds pretty straight forward in Energia. Read an analog pin, scale the reading appropriately, then serial print the value. Have to be careful that the battery voltage doesn't exceed the MSP430's ADC range, based on which analog reference you select. And you still didn't say which one- makes a difference with regards to the bit depth of the ADC and scaling the reading.
  8. So the professor wants "C" code, and you're using Energia instead of CCS? Which MSP is this for, by the way?
  9. @@dubnet - Thanks for that. I haven't been paying much attention to the Hercules things lately so now I've something to look at.
  10. A side thought might be installing the latest CCS from TI, without the LP attached to the computer, then try attaching it and see what happens.
  11. Have you tried using "devmgmt.msc" to search the local hard drive(s) to locate the drivers? Also, you don't say if 32 bit (x86) or 64 bit (x64)....
  12. So what's broke? What doesn't work? What have you tried doing to fix it? What does CCS have to do with Energia?
  13. @@Joules120 The watchdog does things for Energia. Perhaps if you explained, in detail, what you need, someone can help you get what you need.
  14. Didn't notice it before but it seems that Intel has opened up the embedded MCU on the Edison boards. https://software.intel.com/en-us/creating-applications-with-mcu-sdk-for-intel-edison-board
  15. Haven't priced them recently but I know they weren't 'low cost' back when I did. I'm cheap so I'd have probably put one large RGB LED, or a few smaller RGB LEDs, in the middle and made a little cone out of paper to diffuse the light. But at least you didn't go F-22, otherwise I'd be harping you about the shock diamonds when they're on the throttle. Just kidding.
  16. Just uploaded this: /* Blink The basic Energia example. Turns on an LED on for one second, then off for one second, repeatedly. Change the LED define to blink other LEDs. Hardware Required: * LaunchPad with an LED This example code is in the public domain. */ // most launchpads have a red LED #define LED RED_LED //see pins_energia.h for more LED definitions //#define LED GREEN_LED // the setup routine runs once when you press reset: void setup() { // initialize the digital pin as an output. pinMode(LED, OUTPUT); } // the loop routine runs
  17. @@bluehash hasn't formally announced the contest yet, so yeah, maybe you better hurry.
  18. Maybe an odd thought, but what about a variable that increments on overflows?
  19. To clarify, you mean October 4, 2015, right? Some places reverse the day and month so I just want to be clear on that. When I log in to buy that board it shows it at $24.99 USD + $7.00 USD for shipping.
  20. Keep in mind an F/A-18 has two engines. And kudos anyhow for the build you've presented. I thought you were going more for the pedal-car or similar aspect, but what you did is sweet!
  21. @@bluehash What? Nothing on the Announcements forum section?
  22. And I'm feeling good today, so I'll toss in the RaspPI B+ I have here too. Bought it, looked at it, and haven't done a thing with it since.
  23. @@bluehash Do you think some 'qualifiers' should be used, such as the project has to include a TI MCU or something?
