  1. That's true. Good luck and welcome to the forums! The forums are under a month old and growing. If you have any questions, feel free to ask.
  2. Hello all, Wanted to welcome all you new people to the forums. Thanks for giving it a start. If you have any problems or suggestions, please let me know here. A few of my ideas, some touch on NJC's ideas: - Wireless nodes/motes, Zigbee, Bluetooth or Nordic radios - Shields for the Launchpad - Interface to a GPS and Data log - SD Card interface I love the TI Chronos too. Do any of you guys have it?
  3. Hi NJC, Haven't received mine yet. I should have gone with Digikey or Mouser. I like your detailed project site about the Launchpad. I'll be putting a few of your projects through from the main blog page(http://www.43oh.com) to here. Hopefully this forum gains traction. Thanks for mentioning these forums! Keep blogging.
  4. The 43oh forums are up and running. If you have a question anything related to the MSP430 or electronics, ask it here. There are subsections for compilers, your projects and debuggers. There also is a "Discuss" link on the right bottom of any post, in case you have any questions about the blog posts. Blog
  5. Many people have. Depends on when you placed your order. I'm anxiously waiting for my kit. Welcome to the forums!

  8. At times, too many I/O pins is never enough and sacrifies need to be made. [K]im came up with a setup to expand the number of I/O pins on his MSP430. He uses two serial to parallel converters(74HCT595) to give him an extra 16 pins of output and two parallel to serial converters(74HCT597) for 16 pins of input. His code implements a simple bit-bang procedure to clock in/out code and data. Bit-banging these chips frees up any hardware serial ports that could be useful elsewhere. Blog
  9. TI recently launched a cheap and easy to use development tool based on the MSP430 low power microcontroller. The Launchpad includes a development board, 2 programmable MSP430 micrcontrollers and a mini USB cable. This is a very slick deal for beginners and hobbyists who wish to learn the chip. The Launchpad wiki is a good place to start. Blog
