  1. Yep, mine is very much set and forget too which is nice because with my last oven I accidentally put in a pcb and then went and made lunch. 15 min later it was a bubbly black smelly piece of trash. Its not perfect like Greg said but a hell of a lot better then what I was doing previously. So far I'm happy with the stock firmware but that mod is good to know if I want to dial it in further!

  2. After a few years with the toaster ovens, I recently upgraded to this T-962 Reflow oven that I picked up on eBay for $184. Not sure why I waited so long, I baked my first 3 boards printed with stencils from OSH Stencil and they turned out great. Highly recommended!
  3. Yeah don't get me wrong, the event system is super cool, I'm sure with timers and ADCs and DAC you could construct some very clever systems that don't even need the CPU running. My thing was that My first task was to use the timer for input capture. It took me awhile to wrap my head around needing to configure 3 separate peripherals to do this when I was anchored how how it was all built into the MSP430 timer. For the record to do this you need to: Configure the PORT to mux the pin to the EXINT controller Configure EXINT controller to "generate" an event Config EVSYS to route the e
  4. Hi Everyone, I've been away from the forum for quite some time now. We just welcomed a third child to the family and work has also been very busy. People probably notice that analog.io has been sort of on the decline as well since I haven't been doing my best to keep up with all of the things changing inside Google Chrome. Anyway, personal update is not the purpose of this post. I've always been a big fan of MSP430G2553 and Energia. I was recently forced to branch out and try Atmel SAMD11 using this kit: https://www.mattairtech.com/index.php/development-boards/mt-d11.html At fi
  5. Ahh good old nrf24. The radio is capable of transmitting 32bytes of data so you might as well fill'er up before sending. If curious there is also a fork of enrf24 for energia and g2553 that also will transmit BLE beacons: https://github.com/analog-io/analog_io_lib Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. This is awesome, really nice work! Now it would be interesting to see a few more temp sensors scattered around the house to see how they lag the furnace temp Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Make sure RST is pulled up. On Launchpad it is being driven by the USB FET but depending on where you apply external power and your jumper config, the FET part if the LP might not be powered on. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. I was lucky enough to be a guest on the Amp Hour this week. We talked mostly about analog.io but I made a special point to give a shout our to everyone here on 43oh! @@bluehash, I hope it helps grow the user base! http://www.theamphour.com/272-an-interview-with-luke-beno-of-analog-io/
  9. Yeah its obviously designed for high end motor drives, PLCs, robots, things like that. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. This chip is crazy loaded with processors! Kinda cool Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. But then again, you could detect when the kids swipe the entire dish and set off some fake police sirens Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Thanks everyone, I really appreciate it! Here's the task for the day: going to install new temp sensors into the bee hives. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. So I didn't make it to the next round, but thanks to everyone here on 43oh for the awesome support and help along the way! I posted my update here with some thoughts: https://hackaday.io/project/4648-analogio-a-full-stack-iot-platform/log/26290-didnt-make-it-to-the-finals In some ways it is a relief but would have been really cool to go all of the way. I'm currently seeing if any of the finalists want to collaborate and use analog.io as their cloud data service, we'll see what happens next! Also, in addition to the MSP430 Sensor node, I'm also finishing up an AVR based one. Some
