    bluehash reacted to greeeg in GPS logger for a local Beagle club   
    PCBs arrived today.
     

    Glad the Tab & Route worked well, this is the first time I've used it far a panel.
    It is essential for this as the PCB shape doesn't have any straight edges for V-scores.
     
    The tabs could be smaller, but they snap nicely and a few passes with 400 grit cleans up the edges if needed.
     
    Next step, assemble them. The GPS SAW filter is probably the smallest part I've ever soldered. A 5 pin package the size of a 0402 cap *

    bluehash reacted to Rickta59 in Tivac core that works Arduino 1.6.9   
    One of the new features of the beta EnergiaNG is that fact that it is now using the standard Arduino 1.6.x IDE.  Unfortunately, it doesn't look like it is ready to work as a boards manager package with the standard Arduino IDE.  Energia/TI likes their branding and it seems they want to keep TI boards and Arduino board from ever meeting in the same program.
     
    At the same time, I noticed a few things that are missing and instead of trying to push those into Energia. I decided to fork the tivac-core and make the changes there.  I also moved away from the proprietary dslite uploader in favor of using openocd.  This gives you a better chance of running this code on any platform you might like.  Did you know Arduino is now running on Raspberry PI boards?

    Anyways, you can find this new version here:

    https://github.com/RickKimball/tivac-core

    There is a list of things that I've changed in the README.md. This port also makes a couple of assumptions. It assumes you have both an arm-none-eabi-gcc toolchain in your path along with a recent version of openocd.  If you are running linux you can just do:
    $ sudo apt-get install arm-none-eabi-gcc arm-none-eabi-g++ openocd Give this port a whirl and let me know how it works for you.

    bluehash reacted to NurseBob in F5529LP + GPS MT3339 + RockBlock7 9602 Iridium Sat-Comm DIY "spot me"   
    My wife wants to know that when I do my John Muir Trail trek starting on 7/26/2016 I've not fallen down and can't get up, or been eaten by a bear...
    So, I've been building my DIY "SpotMe" Iridium Network-based GPS-Satellite Comm device. 
    I've gotten to the basic level of communication; It reports my position on a regular basis (the following is from a morning conditioning hike). 
    To my surprise, when I set the deconstructed system up on my kitchen table, it managed to both get a GPS fix AND successfully transmit the data to an Iridium satellite.  Given that there is really no "sky" visible from my kitchen, a better than expected performance! 
    Why build it when I could buy similar? Well, why not???  Similar to Dave Jones' "take it apart" I'm a firm believer in DIY to figure out how something works, and can I make one...
     
    Future travel plans: I do "Iron Butt" rides on my 2005 ST1300 - now with 175,000+ miles (there's no typo there, I've really driven that far on my bike...), and I'm planning to do 300 mile sections of the Pacific Crest Trail for the next 10 years. So, again, keeping the wife happy and "in the know."  So, this will be something I plan to use on a regular basis over the next several years.
     
    Once finished with the project I will publish all code, hex and design files for those who have an interest.
     
    Finally, thanks to all who have helped me.  Especially Robert Woodruff, yyrkoon, and Spirilis.

    bluehash reacted to Fred in Which JTAG debugger for a LM3S9997   
    Well, the XDS110 wasn't going to do it. LM Flash Programmer can't even see the XDS110, never mind the LM3S. However, I have managed to get the Stellaris Launchpad's ICDI working. All I needed was to remove a jumper to disconnect the power to the target device and a slightly awkward soldering job on a small pitch ribbon cable. I didn't have to disconnect the Launchpad's target device, just power it down.     Many thanks for the kind offer though, @@bluehash. That looks like a perfect solution, but not really worth the hassle and expense of posting it across the Atlantic.   A small bit of info on getting it working here. I intend to do more when I get the chance. https://0xfred.wordpress.com/2016/07/13/hacking-the-tado-part-1/

    bluehash reacted to RobOwen in Energia - Graphics for the Nokia 5110 LCD Display and the Tiva TM4C123 Launchpad.   
    I was trying to get the Tiva Launchpad TM4C123 working with the Nokia 5110 using Energia. Eventually I came across this page: http://www.clarenceho.net/2015/08/tm4c123-with-dht11-sensor.html
    You can follow the series of questions and answers through which Clarence Ho helped me get the combination working.
    You can see that he used a library originally by Rei Vilo, modified to add a contrast command. You can see also that Clarence has now added the jump-wire connections which are needed to link the Launchpad and LCD, near the top of the page.

    I then investigated graphics, and added Graphics commands to Rei Vilo's library - some were adapted from libraries designed to interface the 5110 to Arduinos. (I've quoted all sources in the file itself)

    You can see the result on this Youtube page:  https://youtu.be/wCwyDiEfO_c
    As you can see, also included is a simple Pacman-style game using the Graphics commands. You may want to jump over the part showing Pacman game, if you want to try it yourself first.
     
    I've also now added another Pacman-style game - but generated randomly. There's a choice of ten sets of games (A-J), each with a potentially infinite number of levels. Note that although the games are generated randomly, the starting point for the random number generator used in each set of games is the same. So, GamesA for instance always has exactly the same levels.

    The Library and games can be downloaded from:
    https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/17759511/LCD5100_Graphics.zip
     
    ... and of course, the Energia code is easy to edit, so you can adapt the programmes for your own needs.

    I hope they are of some use to those who arrive at this page looking for help with connecting the Nokia 5110 to the Tiva Launchpad TM4C123.

    A command parser/dispatcher example from my CO2 laser engraver codebase, using a struct array containing the commands and associated  pointer to functions. A lot cleaner (and easier to maintain) than switch/case statements or if/else constructs...

    bluehash reacted to yyrkoon in Testing a "board"   
    I wanted to paste a link for this here because while it is related to an MSP430G2553 project I was writing code for. The MSP430 is actually a small part of the larger project. Also since I *can* share a video of the board being tested, but I can not discuss the board's function because of an NDA. I did not think it would be fair to put this into the project section.
     
    Anyway, the video in the link is a board that my buddy designed, and I programmed ( through a Beaglebone green ) a test program for. The app was written in Javascript ( Nodejs ), and tests roughly 30 primary circuits in about 3-5 seconds. 4 types being GPO, and 1 type GPI. For what it's worth, every single circuit controlled from the Beaglebone had to be optocoupler isolated . . . Which proved to be a pain to test; As the original test idea was to test the 6 PWM channel as GPO's into the 6 channels of GPI's. This of course turned out to be impossible because of the circuitry, and the inability of the circuit as designed to swing from full on ( 3.3v ) to full off ( 0V ). That is, without adding additional external circuitry, that would have become  a hassle . . . so, we opted for LEDs for the PWMs, and a single switch for all 6 GPI's  plus a very simple Javascript app that took about 5 minutes to whip up Which by the way was possible because of the recent Javascript wrapper library I wrote for the Beaglebone . . . https://github.com/wphermans/Bonejs

    Video of testing the board of this overall project. That's an upside down beaglebone green. The Green LEDS are power indicators, the red LEDS are relay indicators the yellows just above the red LEDs are being turned on by the relays. Then the funky looking connectors at the bottom with wires looping, and yellow LEDs are a tes jig for the PWM channels. Which of course are only being tested as gpio, to test circuitry, not functionality. Granted, I will be playing around with the PWMs on my own, because I have not had a PWM jig in place yet, and this will give me "proof" that the code I'm writing actually works. There are also 6 GPI's tied to a single switch that you may or may not be able to make out in the video. For testing 6 GPI circuits . . .
     
    Additionally, theres an I2C RTC I can ( and already have ) play with in code as well as setup in linux. Then the reason why I'm posting this here . . . the "mysterious" 20 pin ZIF socket in the middle for, gee I wonder what

    Hello All,
    Here is some feedback. Apologies on the late reply.
     
    There was approximately an hour to field our questions/requests.
    On a few questions that were not asked, I have an open channel with them.

    Energia
    - This was my primary focus. I am aware most of you don't care much about it, but there are alot of users coming in from the Arduino world to the TI family.
    A couple of others in the room and myself were concerned about the future of Energia and its support. We were assured that more was being done and we'll know
    more in some time.

    Higher RAM chips on the value line
    - Let them know that higher RAM on the chips shipped with the Launchpad is invaluable. It keeps us from implementing the cooler stuff.

    USB on MSP on the lower end devices
    - Let them know about it. They are aware about the lack of this feature. From my view, low power and USB do not go hand in hand... it may be a challenge.
    EDIT: Just wanted to confirm... that it is my view that USB and low power may be a challenge... not TI's.. They may already have something in the works. I don't know.

    MSP432 DMA
    - Feedback given. They will take this back to the chip architechts.

    Driverlib
    - This is becoming mainstream in a lot of their devices and is quite popular. I left this discussion off.

    TI EStore International Shipping
    I was not able to get to the person incharge of the Store. But they do know of the issue. I'll push this again.

    Energy Trace requests
    - The team would like a list. I'd suggest someone start with a list in the forum and build up on it.

    CCS bugs
    - A list would be good. I'll have someone from TI look at it and post it in their CCS forums.

    MSP software
    - More improvements

    Grace
    - Something new/revamped.
     
    Other comments. They were interested in how we used the TI site, the forums and social media. They were looking for feedback on their datasheets, block diagrams,examples and newsletters. There was also a chat with the calculator group and the TI-Innovator system.

    If you have an issue with TI's tools, the best place to put them is in their E2E forums. If it is a long list/request list post it here.

    On a few questions that were not asked, I have an open channel with them.

    Energia
    - This was my primary focus. I am aware most of you don't care much about it, but there are alot of users coming in from the Arduino world to the TI family.
    A couple of others in the room and myself were concerned about the future of Energia and its support. We were assured that more was being done and we'll know
    more in some time.

    Higher RAM chips on the value line
    - Let them know that higher RAM on the chips shipped with the Launchpad is invaluable. It keeps us from implementing the cooler stuff.

    USB on MSP on the lower end devices
    - Let them know about it. They are aware about the lack of this feature. From my view, low power and USB do not go hand in hand... it may be a challenge.
    EDIT: Just wanted to confirm... that it is my view that USB and low power may be a challenge... not TI's.. They may already have something in the works. I don't know.

    MSP432 DMA
    - Feedback given. They will take this back to the chip architechts.

    Driverlib
    - This is becoming mainstream in a lot of their devices and is quite popular. I left this discussion off.

    TI EStore International Shipping
    I was not able to get to the person incharge of the Store. But they do know of the issue. I'll push this again.

    Energy Trace requests
    - The team would like a list. I'd suggest someone start with a list in the forum and build up on it.

    CCS bugs
    - A list would be good. I'll have someone from TI look at it and post it in their CCS forums.

    MSP software
    - More improvements

    Grace
    - Something new/revamped.
     
    Other comments. They were interested in how we used the TI site, the forums and social media. They were looking for feedback on their datasheets, block diagrams,examples and newsletters. There was also a chat with the calculator group and the TI-Innovator system.

    If you have an issue with TI's tools, the best place to put them is in their E2E forums. If it is a long list/request list post it here.

    bluehash reacted to bakey in Serial port on CC3200-LAUNCHXL different from TM4C123GXL?   
    8 hours of searching for a solution with no progress, 
    Finnaly I give up and post on this forum for help
    And 2 hours later I'm in the shower and think "it's a timing problem!"
    So I added a delay after the first 0 and it works...
    Serial1.begin(115200,(UART_CONFIG_PAR_NONE | UART_CONFIG_STOP_TWO |UART_CONFIG_WLEN_8)); Serial1.write((uint8_t)0); delay(1); // now back to DMX speed: 250000baud Serial1.begin(250000,(UART_CONFIG_PAR_NONE | UART_CONFIG_STOP_TWO | UART_CONFIG_WLEN_8)); Weird how the 123GXL doesn't need the delay...
