    L.R.A got a reaction from RROMANO001 in Energia MT / TI-RTOS support for other boards   
    I think the next board in line is the CC3200 actually, let's see how long it takes.

    If you want TI RTOS they are already supported but of course Energia MT is much easier to use

    L.R.A got a reaction from abecedarian in MSP432 Timer32 use   
    Checked the datasheet and they are very similar to Tiva timers. Didn't check the reference manual for further details.

    They are 32bit timers which can be split each one into two 16bit timers. My guess is they have signals (PWM, capture, etc) but only when used in split timer mode. In 32bit mode they can be used in periodic mode at least (could also have one-shot mode and other modes that don't require a signal).
    That's my bet

    L.R.A got a reaction from abecedarian in Software PWM vs. Servo Library   
    If I am not mistaken the servo library does use software PWM.

    You could make hardware PWM though I am not sure it would be able to get down to 50Hz at full clock speed (at 16Mhz), I am not familiar with the MSP430 timers. Give it a try, as abecedarian said, the board has plenty of PWM outputs.

    L.R.A got a reaction from amine in How to change system clock frequency of tiva c launchpad using PLL on energia?   
    Hi Amine,

    I don't think there is a way to do that with Energia libraries. You have to use TivaWare libraries.

    For that you need to include:
    #include <stdint.h> #include <stdbool.h> #include "driverlib/pin_map.h" #include "driverlib/sysctl.c" and I think I am not missing anything (I don't usually use the compiler that Energia uses).

    Then this depends on which launchpad you have. Is it the smaller one? If it is just use:
    SysCtlClockSet(). As an example for 80Mhz clock with the PLL, main oscillator with external 16Mhz crystal:
    SysCtlClockSet(SYSCTL_SYSDIV_2_5|SYSCTL_USE_PLL|SYSCTL_OSC_MAIN|SYSCTL_XTAL_16MHZ); For more info check this out:

    L.R.A got a reaction from PTB in Stellaris fast analog reads   
    Went ahead and check my Tivaware version, the latest, and there isn't a SysCtlADCSpeedSet() function!

    I really don't know what is the idea with the second register it changes:
        HWREG(SYSCTL_SCGC0) = ((HWREG(SYSCTL_SCGC0) & ~(SYSCTL_SCGC0_ADCSPD_M)) |                            ui32Speed);

    It's setting to 0 a reserved area, somehow it must be "leaking" into bits 16 and 17 of that register. Either way, avoid using that function. Instead use for ADC0:

        HWREG(SYSCTL_RCGC0) &= ~SYSCTL_RCGC0_ADC0SPD_M; // change if you want ADC1     HWREG(SYSCTL_RCGC0) |= SYSCTL_RCGC0_ADC0SPD_1M; // change for the desired speed with the macros and the ADC module

    Hum weird.

    Basically you are directly changing the register values. I usually don't do register programming but sometimes it's needed.
     For some reason setting the ADC speed that way causes problems. If you remove that line I told you to add the code should run. The register I said to change is a legacy register, there's actually a better, new way to set the ADC rate.

    I really can't find a Tivaware function to set the max sample rate . So I can't really give you a solution without using HWREG. Try what's bellow, right now I can't test it out.
    It seems the right register to change, that isn't legacy, is: Register 55: ADC Peripheral Properties (ADCPP), offset 0xFC0

    HWREG(ADC0_BASE+0xFC0) &= ~0xF;
    HWREG(ADC0_BASE+0xFC0) |= 0x7;

    Hi everyone,

    So I'm facing a problem I simply can't solve so far.

    So I'm trying to make some C drivers kinda like Tivaware.
    My problems is that local variables in main.c (a array of 100 chars) are writing over global variables in library.c

    Am I being stupid or something? How can I avoid this?

    Edit: Derp, it was the stack size defined on the compiler

    L.R.A reacted to tripwire in Tiva/CC3200 DMA performance information?   
    I'm happy to post the code to show how I got the results, but be warned: it ain't pretty!
    I used direct register access instead of driverlib so I could keep things consistent with the MSP430 version. Also the test setup doesn't use interrupts directly related to the DMA operation. Instead it wakes up when the timer module measuring the DMA transfer captures the falling edge of its input.
    For those reasons it's a pretty bad example of how to write DMA code on CC3200. This post is probably a better place to look for that.
    Anyway, enough excuses, here it is:
    (Does anyone get the feeling TI deliberately made direct register access unpleasant on CC3200 to "encourage" everyone to use DriverLib?)

    Fun fact:
    If you do GPIOIntRegister (or other PeripheralIntRegister I belive) it also does
            //     // Enable the GPIO interrupt.     //     IntEnable(ui32Int);

    So it actually enables the interrupt

    I always used GPIOIntRegister instead of default handlers and saw other codes using the IntEnable. But I never needed and didn't know why

    The code is stored on my Github account here - https://github.com/remixed123

    And here is what the app looks like.....nice and simple.

    Please let me know if you find any bugs, and also feel free to push any updates to the respective repositories.

    L.R.A got a reaction from 32614_1489253935 in encoder interface   
    As i said, the TM4C123G launchpad tolerates 5V input voltages.
    If you still need to convert:
    Just use a voltage divider https://www.abelectronics.co.uk/docs/tools/resistor/voltage-divider.gif
    It's simple. Just remember to take current into account, not to little nor too much. This basically turns a scale of 0V-5V to a scale 0V-3.3V
    Other way for digital signals is this one: http://repetae.net/zenerresistor.png
    You could always use 1 mosfet per data line, but that should not be necessary, since it's not a bi-directional signal. http://i.stack.imgur.com/64Dk9.png  
    You can read this too http://www.ti.com/lit/an/slaa148/slaa148.pdf  
    All of this can easily be found in google images by just typing "5V to 3.3V"
    The encoder outputs a PWM signal. Just that. You should not have problems with any of the methods if applied correctly. Ex: if the enconder outputs a high frequency you can't use resistors to big like 1M which would mean a really low current, but try to keep about 2mA max input into you MCU pins
