  2. Contest time! Five winners get a MSP-TS430PZ100($89) target board along with an MSP-FET($115). Five! This contest is in partnership with TI. They are looking for ideas and applications that could make use of their Extended Scan Interface(pg 744) or ESI. One of the biggest markets of the MSP430 is flow metering which is where this module is widely used. 1. Come up with an application using the MSP430FR6989 chip ESI. 2. Write it down below. 3. If you win, you implement your idea with your kit and get featured on TI's MSP430 Blog. Rules: 1. You have to have at-least 5 reputation points. 2. Keep a small project log in the Projects section. This is so that it can be published later on TI's Blog. Dates: Contest begins August 15th, 2014. Contest ends August 30th, 2014. Winners will be announced first week of September. ------------------------------------------------------ abecedarian -: Water supply usage chicken -------: Resistive touchscreen pattern detector Fred -----------: Laser cutter coolant and temperature monitor greeeg --------: Fitness monitor bobnova -------:Digital tachometer, speedometer, and intelligent shift light.

  3. 43oh welcomes EA - Electronics as a new sponsor to our community. EA - Electronics makes experimenter boards, R/C equipment and custom test fixtures. Check out their MSP430F5132 F5172 experimenter board below: The F5132EX experimenter board allows you to proto-type and test your design ideas. It is based on an MSP430F5132 micro-controller from Texas Instruments. A large (4.5" by 3") proto-typing area can accommodate various surface mount and through-hole components. Need a larger memory for big programs? The F5137EX upgrade increases the flash memory size to 32KB and the SRAM to 2KB . Thanks for supporting the community.
  4. Hi everyone, Just to let you guys know I've moved towards a shipping managing software "Shipstation". This greatly helps me to ship packages faster than going though Paypal to create a shipping label and pasting the tracking number in OpenCart. Just a recommendation. I pay $25 for the service. Any questions, please ask.

    Hosting Provider Help

    Hello, I'd like to ask you guys to suggest hosting providers. The Forum and Blog traffic are getting higher and higher each month. The site is currently on a shared hosting package from Lunarpages. I now get support tickets every other day of the site's CPU load being higher than normal. When I talked to them. they pointed me to a VPS package. The Linux package is $23/month. Not too expensive, but it helps if it gets cheaper. Being a member with them for 6 years doesn't help. Anyway, suggest: Provider: Price: Experience: Thanks!
  9. This will allow us to get the boards quicker via DHL in 3-4 days instead of a week. 1. Start thread. 2. Submit design with color, size and number. 3. Starter of thread manages the order. 4. Order ships to starter of thread and then to individuals. Not sure if this is quicker or worth it. Had an idea, blurted it out.
  10. So since the past month, I have been working on an OLED display for the Launchpad. It is a 128*64 OLED based on the SSD1306 driver. The booster pack is currently configured as SPI to a MSP430G2452. There are solder jumpers to the /CS, RST, SCLK and MOSI pins, so you can use the pins for something else too. There are currently two font packs created for it( Courier new Large and Small) optimized for the display. These will be available in the next week to buy in the store. Just wanted to get it out here. I have parts to build eight modules till the next batch is made. Code and schematics will be out in a few days. I'd really like to thank people who have contributed code here. I've used it in the OLED code and given credit where credit is due. Please feel free in giving suggestions or criticizing the board. I'm still ironing out stuff with the shop and thought this will be a good time to release something exciting. PS: The variation of light you see in the display is because of the camera's higher shutter speed while it is drawing. With our Persistence of Vision, it appears clean and uniform. ----------------------- Schematic : Rev v1.0 Code : Rev R01_01 Buy : Shop --- Changes to be made for rev1.2 -- Make board stellaris launchpad capable -- Ad mounting holes -- 4 way joystick for UI

    Forum sending old emails

    Hello Everyone, If you are a frequent visitor to the site, you may have noticed the forum down the past 24 hours. I finished fixing the issue. However it seems like a few people are getting older emails from the forum. If you have, I apologize for it. Also, if you did could you let me know down below? Thanks!
  13. Hope you snag one. Enjoy! Use code CYBER https://www.arrow.com/en/products/raspberrypi3/raspberry-pi-foundation
  14. Thought I'd start a running thread, popular among many DIY forums. Can be anything electrical/software or mechanical/DIY.
  15. Hello, Welcome to 43oh. Asking a question in English may help you. Translation:
  16. Cool concept to adding boards to the Raspberry Pi. Atomo is a complete system for building electronic things with four parts: Control, IO, Power, and Connector. https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/atomo-modular-electronics-system-arduino--2#/ https://youtu.be/0uOsLvB1of0

    C2000 energia instaspin foc

    Hello Joppe, Energia is concentrated towards MSP and TiVa controllers. C2000 support is very limited. Motor FOC using Energia is definitely not supported.
  20. This may help(search for "energia delay after programming"):

    I like that command line menu. Are you using your own homebuilt parser?
