    D^2 got a reaction from bluehash in TI Resource Explorer without CCS   
    Hey Sven,
    TI Resource Explorer offers a few collections of Resources for different MCUs, for MSP430 this collection is called MSPWare. Good news is that the UI is all web-based and actually the stand-alone MSPWare also offers the same TI Resource Explorer UI without the need of CCS. You can download the stand-alone version here, then open the following path in your browser: 
    file:///C:/ti/msp430/MSP430ware_1_70_00_28/~TIRex/index.html [Replace the version number with the one you have].
     
    The C2000 guys also have something similar called ControlSUITE.

    This project was a collaboration with Texas Instruments.  I've kept it hush-hush so far, but as of yesterday - it's finally out in the wild!  Yesterday at the SF Maker Faire, Texas Instruments started giving away boards at their booth.  If you're visiting the Maker Faire today - please drop by booth 220!
     
    Thanks a ton to TI for sponsoring and feedback on the design.  Will Cooper, Adrian Fernandez, Mark Easley, Dung Dang and Rachel Platis were all involved - this wouldn't have happened without them.
    Also - Elecrow did a wonderful job on the boards and initial kitting (I added the batteries and MCU once back in the US).  
     
    Badge page on 43oh - http://43oh.com/badge/  (drop by this page for more info and an intro video).
    Github with schematics, sample code, etc. : https://github.com/dd430/430RocketBadge
     
    The board is intended to be easy to solder - parts were kept to a minimum.  It showcases several features of the MSP430G line.  The board has a Cap Touch slider as well as 5 LEDs.  The pre-programmed demo starts in a POV mode.  If you swing the badge in a circle, you'll see the pre-programmed messages written in the air.  My favorite part of the project though - has to be the ability to update the message on the badge via the light sensors on the board.  You may have seen similar projects.  One sensor is used for the clock, another for the data.  A simple web page allows design of a message and then uses two squares on the page to trigger high/low values on the light sensors.  You can find it at the 43oh badge page above.
     
    All in all - we were able to get 500 kits created.  Hopefully these will be given away at events that TI is attending for quite a while.  I'll post back if I hear they're going to show up for an event.  Hopefully we'll also have a few to give away to forum members as well.  
     
    BTW - I will say - creating 500 kits of something is a significantly different endeavor than just a handful
     
    Boards after manufacture:

     
    500 kits arrived at my house:

     
    I started with several ideas for the board initially - but we ultimately ended with the POV design.  V1 of the design used a shift register to control the LEDs and took significantly longer to solder.  Not the best for a beginner kit  Not to mention getting the clock working with the shift register was a bit squirly for some reason.

    I was able to extract the cover from Garrett's STL file and extend it a bit to fit the TRF-7970 NFC BoosterPack.  I added 6mm to it as you can see here:
     

     
    It should be able to fit with many other Boosters as well, but I haven't really tested it out.
     

     
    It sits only a few mm off of the Booster PCB so that the NFC tag is close to it.

    Courtesy of @@ILAMtitan running the new 3-D printer in our lab. The case turns out pretty good. As you can see, we're already thinking about extending this to enclose LP + a BoosterPack. The one shown here is an NFC one, maybe a display one as well. Let's wait for @@ILAMtitan to work his 3-D design magic.

    Hey @@cubeberg, I've added a project configuration into your code. Starting with CCSv5.3, we have introduced a new and more elegant way of defining a project for easier import/export. This feature is called projectspec. By adding a .projectspec into your code folder, you can specify the names, files to copy over, compiler settings such as optimization or --gcc extension in this specific case. Users no longer have to include the other confusing .project or .debug files/folders anymore. All you need to fully replicate the project is:
     
    1. Your code files.
    2. The .projectspec file
    [optional] Linker command file ONLY IF you customize it, otherwise the stock linker command file will be copied over to the project.
     
    Here's the new zip file that anybody can simply import into their CCS and immediately compile & download.

    So I came in the morning to see this delivered on my desk. No notes other than the '43oh' marking on the package. I didn't have a banana handy, so the new Educational BoosterPack MK II was used for scale. 

     
    Thorough examination of the package indicates that the item is most likely a book. Oh no, do I actually have to read this Christmas? Still somewhat confused by the vague description the package and being very suspicious, I compare the unwrapped package to the "Getting Started with MSP430 LaunchPad" book, and guess what, identical dimensions. Well...surely nobody would gift me my own book? Maybe it's another book that happens to use the same format. 
     
    Hmm....I'll be dang'ed. (Can I say that?) Maybe this is a mistake by somebody? Thoroughly confused, I decide to wait a day and sleep on it.

     
     
    Finally the next day, after satisfying the thirst of tormenting his Secret Satan gift recepient, my Secret Santa surprises me one more time, now with the real gift, on the left. Well played @@ILAMtitan, well played you tricky you sir! By the way, both gifts were amazingly wrapped. Now I know who to ask next time I have to wrap something.
