  1. Congrats for reaching level 430

    Definitely. I have to get badges back. I'll look into this. Good eye! Goodjob Fmilburn!
  2. Introduction post!

    Welcome to 43oh!
  3. Hello

    @nixnerd3 Welcome to 43oh. Not really. Some members prefix the title with [SOLVED]. Some come back with a response and a thank you. Some don't, but the community really appreciates the first two. 43oh was started when the first Launchpads were released, around July 2010. E2E was nascent and just coming up during that time. 43oh was started so that people could share their MSP430 projects using the Launchpad(or without it). There were two other communities that were created after that - Stellarisiti(for Tiva, then known as Stellaris) and the C2000 forum, since TI started releasing Launchpads for those architectures as well. A few years later @energia started working on a port of Wiring for Arduino for the MSP430 Launchpad. It was requested that 43oh be the forum for people to ask question about Energia. Around the same time, it was hard to admin the remaining two community sites and also for members to keep track of posts and visitors were getting confused. It was decided to make 43oh the hub of most of TI chips. Currently, the most active forums are the MSP430 and the TIVA forums. TL;DR 43oh is not only an Energia forum, but includes MSP430 and ARM chips from TI. Hope this answers your first two questions. For your 3rd, asking in the MSP430 Energia forum will help. Good questions!
  4. Sd card interface with msp430

    @birla, welcome to 43oh. Can you also look through the below post and make sure to post your errors. Saying "Giving me errors" is hard to debug.
  5. 2018

    Hello Everyone, I would like to wish all of our members and visitors a wonderful new year. Thank you for contributing and answering posts. Keep posting and wish you all the best.
  6. Hello @xeebot glad you got your question answered. As @Rei Vilo suggested, please ask your questions publicly next time. It benefits everyone. Thank you!
  7. Ethertronics Antenna

    Free for @radiohead award group and above >100 reputation members. Others, just pay shipping($2 domestic, $3.5 International). One of my colleagues got this in a trade show. It is just sitting on my table. Might be of use to someone. This will probably fit the CC3200 Launchpad is you need increased range. @@jpnorair can chime in. I'm no good in antenna design. Bundle and save with stuff from my downsizing thread.
  8. Seems like an open issue that @Rei Vilo had logged: https://github.com/energia/cc3200-core/issues/19
  9. MSP-EXP432P111

    Thanks for the quick review. Any plans for it?
  10. RFC: CNC BoosterPack

    Looks great @terjeio. Good luck.!
  11. Who does the forum post twice?

    Hi @Rei Vilo One of the reasons this may be happening is due to the server timing out or running slow. I've tried resolving the issue by optimizing server settings, but it is an art. I'm getting there slowly. For now, reporting the duplicate posts will help a great deal.
  12. The CC3200 Launchpad has been sitting on my desk for quite some time. Today I decided to hook it up and see if it can come in handy in any of my projects. I can say one thing... this Launchpad is well designed. Anyway, the camera boosterpack was announced way back and unfortunately it is a TI reference design. The camera itself is a MT9D111($18) module. The Camera BoosterPack has support for Flexi modules too, including the OV3660 camera sensor. The schematic shows a bunch of caps and resistors and a couple of power management chips. Would it be worthwhile getting a PCB assembled? I'm sure TI won't mind if we take their PCB package and replicate it for a group buy. If it is within 5x5 or so, I can have Elecrow do a 20 pcb set. I'm guessing $5 shipped in the US after taking into account 2 way shipping, PCB cost and packaging. CC3200 Camera BoosterPack Wiki page.
  13. Hello from Switzerland

  14. Hello from Fort Worth, Texas

    Welcome to 43oh! Good job on figuring things out. Thanks for the update.
  15. Amazon FreeRTOS

    Nice find! This is what I see on my console. There are ports for TI, ST and NXP. The TI port is for the CC3220SF-LAUNCHXL
  16. Powering CC3200 LAUNCHXL

    From the schematic, it seems you can power it up from 5V, but it does not mention it anywhere. The Vcc_MCU_5V runs all the way to the BoosterPack 5V pin. According to the the hardware manual, it recommends powering the board via the 3.3V Header pin. This also connects to the VCC_BRD pin. Remove J13 jumper for this, so everything upstream can be disconnected.
  17. SD card data logging

    I think the smallest sector that can be written is 512 bytes. Even if you want to change one byte in there, ELM Chan's FatFS would backup 512 bytes, manipulate it and write the full sector back. You could offload the data writing(and reading) to DMA, but you may run into the card write speed acting as a bottleneck. I believe the FatFS library also does some other bookkeeping functions, separate from the write, like updating file sizes.
  18. SDCard Booster Pack

    Just came in today along with the Wiznet Wifi PCBs First test successful with code from here. Card detect LED needs to be added in. Currently running on a 2553 USCI. Jumper support is available for 2452 USI too. Schematics in a few days. I'm too tired right now. Latest code: Code Suggested for Next Rev: 1.Add mini SD support 2.Wire gnd line to pid 6 of sd card connector. Thanks Rick! 3. Add micro SD support? 4. Dac/LM386(<-Rick's suggestion)
  19. New thread here. With all the radio packs that are in development. I though this will be a nice to have. Imagine wireless nodes. Sparkfun's Power Cell was an inspiration for this. I'm planning to include a 3.7V onboard Li-Po battery too. Would anyone be interested in such a pack? I'm taking suggestions. I'll place this and the Breadboard Booster Pack orders together. Features: - LiPo charger. - Charges via USB using Microchip's MCP73831 - Status indicator - Included DC-DC TPS6120 TI DC-DC Boost converter to regulate a selectable voltage of 3.3V and 5V - Powers Launchpad with VCC jumper at emulator removed. Rough PCB:

  21. Hello from LC-NM

  22. Hello, welcome to 43oh! Next time, please start a separate thread on your issue for better visibility. Your post has been moved to a new topic.
  23. JBU VTOL system using MSP430F5529

    Very cool! When is your first flight test?
  24. Interfacing msp430g2553 with gsm sim900

    Thanks @Rei Vilo deleted the other posts.
  25. 20170311 - Upgrade

    Hello Everyone, Thanks for being patient while the forums were being fixed and upgraded. One Friday morning(March 10th, 2017), the server went down. There was a memory issue, which stalled the SQL server and everything came to halt. it had been fixed by Friday night, but then went down again due to a mistake I made during the bringup. In the mean time, I also decided to try to upgrade the server(php and peripheral updates) as well as the forum software. I'm going to see how things plan out in the next couple of days. Any issues you see with the site, please reply to this thread. Thanks!
