    msptest6 got a reaction from CorB in [Piccolo] Are MSP430 BoosterPacks compatible with C2000 BoosterPacks   
    Most of the BPs were made before the C2000 Launchpad came out, so a little software work or hardware pin routing may be necessary.
    Also, good find on the page. This is the first time I'm seeing it.

    msptest6 reacted to TI_Trey in Can't find C2000 LaunchPad line item in CCS 5.2.1.00018   
    Ok, I've resolved the issue with resource explorer. There was one wrong ID in the XML that was causing resource explorer to not pick up the XML. This new XML should fix the issue. You can copy it into c:\ti\controlSUITE\~cs_desktop\controlSUITE and replace the file that is already there. There will be a few other XML files there (libraries, kits, devices, root.content.xml), delete these files. Restart CCS, and you should have the C2000 LaunchPad entry in Resource Explorer.
     
    I'm rolling these changes into an update, so if you don't feel like doing this manually just wait till tonight and update your controlSUITE.

    I believe there may be a TI BoosterPack in the works that does exactly what ya'll are suggesting. I think they are using something like the DRV8312. Also, we already have software that can do BLDC control very well

    I submitted some abstracts for Design East, but they were all rejected
     
    Up until now, they've had me shackled to a cube, but now that I'm getting some press I should get a lot more opportunities to go out and talk about the hardware (and software).
     
    If I do get the opportunity to go out and give a talk somewhere, I'll keep the community here informed.

    Which terminal program are you using ? I tried the Parallax serial terminal but it just prints these ansi codes as ASCII, I get just a mess of 7s and ansi codes.
     
    Aaand..50C ? That would hurt but the chip feels just warm.

    You never see ASCII art nowadays...especially not in a commercial products like this. I actually originally developed this to show off to management when I was validating USB on our F2806x device. It was the perfect example for demonstrating the CDC device class.

    I threw this together a while back, but never got it manufactured. I'm sure you already have templates at 43oh, but here's another one. Its setup as a simple 0.1" pitch protoboard, but could easily be modified for our own purposes. Keep in mind this board is bigger than the launchpad and of course the files are Eagle (v5.11 I think).

    msptest6 got a reaction from RobG in [Piccolo] C2000 Launchpad FAQ   
    FAQ from the User Guide:
     
     
    1. Can other programming and debug tools (such as an XDS510 emulator) be used with the C2000
    LaunchPad?
    While a user could potentially connect an external emulator to the F28027 device present on the
    LaunchPad, it would require some rework of the board. It is recommended that users who want to use
    an external emulator purchase a controlCard and docking station that includes an external JTAG
    connector.
     
    2. What versions of Code Composer Studio can be used to develop software for the C2000 LaunchPad?
    It is highly recommend that novice users develop applications with Code Composer Studio v5. The
    drivers, examples, and other associated software are tailored to make the user experience as smooth
    as possible in Code Composer Studio v5. However, there is nothing to prevent a user from creating
    projects in Code Composer Studio v3 or v4 with the source files available in controlSUITE. Keep in
    mind that all the projects for the C2000 LaunchPad are Code Composer Studio v5 projects and will not
    import into Code Composer Studio v3 or v4. Only expert users should attempt to use the LaunchPad
    with Code Composer Studio v3 or v4.
     
    3. Why can’t I connect to the LaunchPad in Code Composer Studio?
    There are a number of things that could cause this and they all have an easy fix.
    • Is S1 switch 3 in the down position?
    This is the TRST pin which enables and disables JTAG functionality on the chip. This switch must
    be in the up position for the emulator to be able to connect.
    • Are both power LEDs lit?
    The board has two power domains because of the isolated JTAG interface. For low-voltage
    application development, JTAG isolation is not needed and the power domains can be combined to
    allow for convenience (that is, the board can be powered completely through the USB). Ensure that
    jumpers are placed on the posts of JP1, JP2, and JP3.
    • Are drivers correctly installed for the XDS100v2 present on the LaunchPad?
    Right click on My Computer and select properties. Navigate to the Hardware tab in the dialog box
    and open the device manager. Scroll to the bottom of the list and expand the USB Serial Bus
    controllers item. Are there two entries for TI XDS100 Channel A/B? If not, try unplugging and
    replugging in the board. Does Windows give you any messages in the system tray? In Device
    Manger, do either of the entries have a yellow exclamation mark over their icon? If so, try
    reinstalling the drivers.
     
    4. Why is the serial connection not working?
    There are a few things that could cause this and they are easy to fix.
    • Is S4 in the up position?
    S4 connects the F28027 device serial peripheral to the XDS100 serial port, so this switch must be
    turned on (up) for serial connectivity to function.
    • Are you using the correct COM port?
    Right click on My Computer and select properties. Navigate to the Hardware tab in the dialog box
    and open the device manager. Scroll to Ports (COM & LPT) and expand this entry. Is there a USB
    Serial Port listed? If so, read the COM number to the right of the entry; this is the COM number you
    should be using.
    • Are you using the correct baud rate?
    Most, if not all, of the examples are configured for a baud rate of 115200 when the CPU is running
    at 60 MHz. If you have changed the PLL settings or written your own application you may have to
    recalculate the baud rate for your specific application. For information on how to do this, see the
    TMS320x2802x, 2803x Piccolo Serial Communications Interface (SCI) Reference Guide
    (SPRUGH1).

    Glad to hear people are getting their launchpads. I'm really sorry about the jumpers...in the rush to get everything done and ready I must have over looked this. If it starts to become an issue, I'm going to try to get some bags of jumpers put up in the estore for free.
     
    In the mean time, these jumpers from digikey should work:

    Please do be careful as you're using the board as Automate said. 5V, 3.3V and Ground are all on the header pins that face downward, so placing the board on something metal (or a pile of other boards...hey I know my desk is messy...) while the board is powered could potentially damage something. I think I'm going to make a mounting board boosterpack that will have receptacles for all the downward facing pins and some mounting holes. This should help to protect those bottom pins and give you some points that you can use to (semi-)permanently attach the launchpad to your project.
     
    Also, We're on HackaDay!! Twice nonetheless!!! I'm pretty stoked. I've been reading hackaday since its inception, but I've never had anything of my own creation on there. Its really a great feeling to start being able to give back to the community after I've learned so much from it.

    I have personally used the valueCAN from Intrepid Control Systems and the NI-CAN (USB) adapter from National Intruments. Both work well, and don't drop packets except under the highest loads. Whatever you end up getting I would recommend you look for something with an RP1210 compatable driver. RP1210 is a standard API for CAN adapter software and makes it very easy to switch CAN PC applications to using different hardware adapters.

    Absolutely! The C2000 LaunchPad supports real time debug.
     
    For those of you new to C2000, real time debug allows you to monitor and change application variables in real time while the CPU is executing your application code. This enables easy debug of the complex analog control loop that our processors typically control.

    msptest6 reacted to TI_Trey in [Piccolo] Are MSP430 BoosterPacks compatible with C2000 BoosterPacks   
    Most of the boosterpacks that are out there should be compatible with the exception of the capacitive touch boosterpacks (both standard and C5x audio). We've actually developed a loose standard to guide boosterpack development and all LaunchPads (past, present, and future....) will do their best to conform to this standard:
    http://processors.wiki.ti.com/index.php/BYOB
     
     
    There is a spreadsheet floating around TI internally which details boosterpack/launchpad hardware and software compatability. Look for more information to be added to the TI Processors wiki as the C2000 Launchpad is released.
