  1. So if I want to connect the G2553-CC2500 to an ez430-RF2500T that is running the Wireless Sensor Monitor (WSM) demo, should it "connect"? Or at the very least join the AP's network? OK. It works. My only "issue" after all the fun is that the LP_G2553 board def file uses pins 2.6 & 2.7 by default for GDO. These are the XIN & XOUT pins, which happen to not be connected to the IC on the current LP boards (were they before?). I changed the def file to use 2.4 & 2.5, and it fixed it.
  2. The only advantage I give to MSP430 right now is that it is a well established platform.
  3. Another 4 hours wasted trying to figure out if my pins are even correct. Blarg. I think I'm ready to give up on these modules. Last Hail Mary request, if anyone is still working on these: 1) Does the example given by the OP include activating the SPI bus? If so, were my pin assumptions in the earlier post correct? 2) If not so, do I need to active SPI bus with my own code, or use the SimpliciTI provided mrfi_spi.c to do so? I feel like there is something simple that I'm missing but I don't know what it is.
  4. It might be because I've had a couple of beers, but that totally came across with the voice of Dr Doofenshmirtz. As it should.
  5. It's a MSPEXP430G2 with a G2553.
  6. Do you think I could hook up a SMBus device to a Launchpad with this screen on it? The screen would be nice for charge monitoring.
  7. Thanks for the schematic. I'm trying to determine which G2553 pins remain unused. P1.1-P1.3, P2.1, XIN, XOUT, TEST, RST, appear to be unused. Is that correct?
  8. I'm still not seeing the pictures. I had a long break from working on this project a long time and did a redo of the instructions. Since I couldn't see the pictures I may be missing something. I had to add \bsp\drivers to the project to get it to compile. Otherwise it gave "bsp_leds.h could not be read" error.
  9. Couple of issues: 1) I cannot see any of the pictures. (but I was able to configure the project and compile it OK). 2) Is there a schematic for wiring the MSP430 Launchpad with G2553 to the CC2500 Module that you get from 43oh store? Adding: I assume the configuration is as follows from mrfi_board_defs: Launchpad pins -> cc2500 module pin P1.4 -> P8 (Chip Select) P1.5 -> P3 (SPI clock) P1.6 -> P2 (SPI transfer) P1.7 <- P4 (SPI transfer) P1.6 -> P4 (SPI transfer) P1.7 <- P2 (SPI transfer) VCC -> P1 (Vcc) GND -> P6 (Gnd)
