    but we have to perform some tests
     
    Here is the next one
    with setModule(module) and setModule(module, ssPin) for "universal" SPI which can be set to (0),(1),(2),(3)
    or, of course, still exists SPI0, SPI1, new SPI2, SPI3 as a "hard" defined

    I tend to stay away from the Arduino distrubution directory. I created a directory in my Arduino sketch directory called "hardware" to store alternate cores. In my case on linux it ends up being ${HOME}/Arduino/hardware

    PSTR is Atmel's way to identify pointers to program memory. Energia has a define somewhere to ignore PSTR. So F() in the end does nothing to the string pointer. It doesn't have to, thanks to MSP430's sane memory model.
     
    F() can safely be left away for MSP430.

    2. This lib uses "user defined" CS pin and control it from library, not from msp hardware
    of course You can change it to other pin but remember, that You must change this in two places:
    - in Your sketch, through properly set pin mode eg:  pinMode(10,OUTPUT)
    - in enc28typedef.h inside this library folder: #define ENC28J60_CONTROL_CS    10
    At this moment personally I use pin 13 and it works too

    reaper7 reacted to Fmilburn in AD9850 Frequency Generator BoosterPack   
    This project uses an inexpensive AD9850 board obtained off eBay to create a frequency generator boosterpack that is especially useful with the MSP-EXP430FR6989 LaunchPad. It features an encoder with a pushbutton to adjust frequency. In the photo below it is generating a 7000 Hz signal which agrees nicely with the oscilloscope.

    The schematic is simple:

    The encoder is a Bourns 652-PEC12R-4225F-S24. I tried various arrangements and value of resistors and capacitors for debouncing the encoder and switch. In the end I just added some capacitance as shown in the schematic. On the oscilloscope it looked pretty clean so I called it good enough. All the parts are through hole as seen in the photograph below:

    The fit is tight but fortunately all the materials were on hand when the PCB was being designed so I printed out a paper PCB outline and checked it before ordering.

    If I were making it again I would increase the size of the board a bit to allow larger/additional labels. Otherwise, everything works and it turned out fine. This is a picture of the unpopulated boards I received from Osh Park.

    While it should work with most LaunchPads I had the FR6989 in mind as I developed it - in particular I wanted to use the integrated LCD display. Accordingly, I was careful not to obscure the display or the reset button. The software was developed with Energia V17. Here is a photo of what it looks like in operation:

    The output from the AD9850 comes out the jumpers attached to the 90 degree male header pins marked with arrow A. The dark jumper wire is GND and the sine wave is coming out of the lighter wire on the right. Adjustments are made with the encoder knob marked by arrow B. Turning it adjusts the frequency up and down and the current value is output on the LCD as shown by the arrow C. The range is from zero to 32 MHz. Since fine adjustment is desired, as well as rapid adjustment, the push button on the encoder is used to change the coarseness of the adjustment. The magnitude is indicated by the battery indicator on the LCD as shown by arrow D. For example, in the photo three battery bars are showing which indicates that each adjustment/click of the encoder will change the output by 1000 Hz. When the encoder is pushed down it will cycle through in this case to 100 Hz adjustment (with two bars showing), 10 Hz (one bar), 1 Hz (no bars), and then up to 1 MHz (six bars), and so on. In practice, it adjusts pretty quickly with good resolution.
     
    One enhancement might be to have the software scroll the output value since as is it won't display full resolution due to the 6 digit screen. The Energia sketch can be found here.
     
    I have an extra PCB so if you are active in the 43oh forums and would like it then send me a personal message and I will mail it gratis.

    Thanks for the starting point there. The calls to Swupdate don't seem to be working since the LM Flash Utility still hangs on the "trying to connect". Starting the MAC/PHY with the "SoftwareUpdateInit()" function, my callback function is called as expected. I get the same behavior with the Energia UDP/Ethernet libraries where I can see the "magic update packet". 
     
    I suspect that the issue is that I don't have the proper Ethernet Bootloader installed, but can't seem to find any information on how to install/build it. Any idea how I can install the Ethernet Bootloader/include it in my projects?
     
     
    Comment block from SoftwareUpdateBegin():

    //! \return Never returns.
     
    EDIT:
     
    I got the Ethernet update to work by making a few modifications to the SwUpdate.c file. For whatever reason (I didn't really bother looking into this part...), the defines aren't set to use the ROM based Ethernet bootloader in the SoftwareUpdateBegin function, and the ROM Ethernet functions aren't defined in Energia 017's "rom.h" file. The latest version of TivaWare (TivaWare_C_Series-2.1.2.111) does provide the proper definitions for it. I simply added the necessary defines to call the ROM_UpdateEMAC and forced the code to use that, instead of the flash bootloader based update system. It also seems to be important that the MAC address set by the Ethernet library matches the MAC address programmed into user registers (by default this is what is on the sticker on the board).
     
    Anyways, I've attached a working Energia example with support for updates over Ethernet.

    Try using pins 3 and 4 for the ESP : use jumper wire from these pins to connect to the ESP. Then remove the RX TX jumpers from the Launchpad (the most left one and the one next to it). Use softwareserial(e.g. on Pins 5 and 6 with 9600 baud) for debugging : connect the pins 5 and 6 e.g. with jumper wires to the pins where you have removed the jumpers.
