    Lgbeno got a reaction from bluehash in T-962 Reflow Oven   
    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!

    Lgbeno got a reaction from bluehash in Playing with Atmel SAMD11   
    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 first it was a real struggle to get started. I loaded a bunch of examples in Atmel Studio and just stared at them puzzled. Their abstractions IMO are just over the top for configuring periphrials, I much prefer interacting with registers with the syntax that TI uses.
     
    After about 3 days of cursing and scratching my head I finally think that I'm ramped up on the part and am now pretty excited about it. The experience has caused me to dig into the innards of Arduino more than I ever have in the past.
     
    So with the pain behind me, There is so much about this part that is superior to old trusty G2553.
    48MHz vs 16MHz
    4k sram vs 512 bytes
    USB
    More serial channels (SERCOMS)
    Multi channel DMA
    Analog DAC
    Faster ADC with decimation to get up to 16bit res
     
    This interesting (at first frustrating) concept of an event system to route events between periphrials without CPU.
     
    All of this and the price is lower or about equivalent to G2553.
     
    On one hand I'm sad to move to a new goto part, on the other, I'm excited. Has anyone else gave it a try?

    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 event to the TC1 module
    Configure the TC1 module to capture on this event
     
    But with time there will be plenty of stack overflows on this topic. Right now it is early days.
     
    Maybe there is a future where a chip like this replaces some of the hard logic components like SPI ADCs/DACs because it is cheaper and can be configures to sweep up a lot of stuff.

    Lgbeno got a reaction from tripwire in MSP430G2553 with NRF24L01 Wireless   
    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:

    Now it would be interesting to see a few more temp sensors scattered around the house to see how they lag the furnace temp

    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 people just really prefer Arduino and AVR, don't want to discriminate!
