    new Intel Hex parsing library

    I wrote this library to do fancy analysis and collation of intel hex files https://github.com/analog10/ihp If you find it useful please leave a comment in the forum.
  2. I think it would be really cool to have a battery powered ESP8266 that could write to the flash of an MSP430 via the UART BSL. There are 2 free GPIO on the ESP8266 that could toggle the RST and TST lines as well as the normal RX/TX. In operation, one could upload a small file to the ESP8266 via web interface and initiate the transfer via a button on the same. Also once could read/write the information segments as well. Is there any existing project like this or any interest in the community for it?

    Interface push button rotary encoder on 1 analog input

    begin_lcd_write() just buffers data and initializes the TA0.1 IE. The LCD data are clocked in the timer interrupt handler so there really isn't any blocking. I think an improvement would be to supersample 8 times, average and then use the change in value as a determination of how far the encoder turned, rather than only comparing discrete levels.
  4. I had a lack of digital input pins for a pushbutton rotary encoder switch so I used an analog input. I wrote up my results here: https://analog10.com/posts/rotary_encoder_analog_input.html It works pretty well except for an occasional reverse tick but that's probably a flaw in my code.

    G2553 4 wire SPI Slave always seems enabled

    The master is talking to 8 slaves using chip select pins on P3. Only 1 pin is pulled low at a time using the ~ operator, so STE is NOT floating. I think I mostly solved my issue with the following code: (By mostly solved I mean I am seeing garbage on MISO when a slave is not present on the active chip select, but that seems to be a checksum issue now) #include <msp430g2553.h> #include <string.h> #include "stdarg.h" enum { /* Port 1 */ LED1 = BIT0 ,LED2 = BIT1 ,CHIP_SELECT = BIT3 }; int main(void){ WDTCTL = WDTPW | WDTHOLD; /* TODO Check if -mdisable-watchdog set. */ BCSCTL1 = CALBC1_16MHZ; DCOCTL = CALDCO_16MHZ; /* SMCLK = DCO / DIVS = nMHz */ /* ACLK = VLO = ~ 12 KHz */ BCSCTL2 &= ~(DIVS_0); BCSCTL3 |= LFXT1S_2; /* Disable TX hardware (if applicable) * Disable external crystal. */ P1SEL &= ~(BIT1 | BIT2); P1SEL2 &= ~(BIT1 | BIT2); P2SEL &= ~(BIT6 | BIT7); /* Enable SPI */ UCB0CTL1 = UCSWRST; P1SEL |= BIT4 | BIT5 | BIT6 | BIT7; P1SEL2 |= BIT4 | BIT5 | BIT6 | BIT7; UCB0CTL0 = UCSYNC | UCMODE_2 | UCMSB | UCCKPH; UCB0BR0 = 0; UCB0BR1 = 0; UCB0CTL1 &= ~UCSWRST; //IE2 |= UCB0RXIE | UCB0TXIE; P1DIR = LED1 | LED2; P1OUT = CHIP_SELECT; P1REN |= CHIP_SELECT; P1IES |= CHIP_SELECT; P1IE |= CHIP_SELECT; P2OUT = 0xFF; P2REN |= 0xFF; P1IFG = 0; P2IFG = 0; /* Default state is to output. */ P3OUT = 0xFF; P3DIR = 0xFF; __eint(); LPM0; } __attribute((interrupt(PORT1_VECTOR))) void Port_1(void){ unsigned snap = P1IFG; P1IFG &= ~snap; P1OUT ^= LED2; if(snap & CHIP_SELECT){ P1IES ^= CHIP_SELECT; if(P1IES & CHIP_SELECT){ IE2 &= ~(UCB0RXIE | UCB0TXIE); /* Rising edge, CS is over; reset SPI state. */ UCB0CTL1 |= UCSWRST; UCB0CTL1 &= ~UCSWRST; } else{ UCB0CTL1 |= UCSWRST; UCB0CTL1 &= ~UCSWRST; UCB0TXBUF = P2IN; IE2 |= UCB0RXIE; } snap &= ~CHIP_SELECT; } } __attribute__((interrupt(USCIAB0RX_VECTOR))) void USCI0RX_ISR(void) { P1OUT ^= LED1; uint8_t relays = UCB0RXBUF; P3OUT = relays; }
  6. The following code accepts over the SPI bus a byte from the master to control 8 relays, and returns the state of 8 inputs. I am running into an issue where the slave always responds to the SCLK, driving MISO, even when the STE (pin 1.4) is not asserted low. Any ideas why? #include "msp430g2553.h" #include <string.h> enum { /* Port 1 */ LED1 = BIT0 ,LED2 = BIT1 }; int main(void){ WDTCTL = WDTPW | WDTHOLD; BCSCTL1 = CALBC1_16MHZ; DCOCTL = CALDCO_16MHZ; /* SMCLK = DCO / DIVS = nMHz */ /* ACLK = VLO = ~ 12 KHz */ BCSCTL2 &= ~(DIVS_0); BCSCTL3 |= LFXT1S_2; P2SEL &= ~(BIT6 | BIT7); /* Enable SPI */ P1SEL |= BIT4 | BIT5 | BIT6 | BIT7; P1SEL2 |= BIT4 | BIT5 | BIT6 | BIT7; UCB0CTL1 = UCSWRST; UCB0CTL0 = UCSYNC | UCMODE_2 | UCMSB | UCCKPH; UCB0BR0 = 0; UCB0BR1 = 0; UCB0CTL1 &= ~UCSWRST; IE2 |= UCB0RXIE | UCB0TXIE; P1DIR = LED1 | LED2; P2OUT = 0xFF; P2REN |= 0xFF; P1IFG = 0; P2IFG = 0; /* Default state is to output. */ P3OUT = 0xFF; P3DIR = 0xFF; __eint(); LPM0; } __attribute__((interrupt(USCIAB0RX_VECTOR))) void USCI0RX_ISR(void) { P1OUT ^= LED2; uint8_t relays = UCB0RXBUF; P3OUT = relays; } __attribute__((interrupt(USCIAB0TX_VECTOR))) void USCI0TX_ISR(void) { P1OUT ^= LED1; UCB0TXBUF = P2IN; }

    Any cheap MSP430 boards from china?

    Are you looking for a board with a programmer or just a chip on it? I have one for sale on tindie for 6.95 + 2.00 shipping and includes P3.0-P3.7 (no programmer though) https://www.tindie.com/products/analog10/dos-ocho-launchpad-compatible-board-with-28-pins/
  8. Harbor Freight offers a decent deal on a digital gauge that also communicates its reading (much like a Chinese calipers). I built up an MSP430 based solution to retransmit this data via UART and externally power the dial gauge (eliminating the need for a button cell battery). Project details are at https://analog10.com/posts/external_power_for_the_pittsburgh_dial_gauge.html Code is at https://github.com/analog10/Digital_Dial_Gauge_Reader Happy Holidays

    msp430gcc on Beaglebone

    I build images on my desktop, then access them from my raspberry-pi via ssh-fs...no need to build them locally.

    Exercise: Robust Digital Edge Detection

    We have to worry about an edge happening in our critical section initialization. So change initialization as follows. __disable_interrupt(); uint8_t back = PxIES; PxIFG = 0; PxIES = PxIN; /* According to slau144j It's not possible to trigger a fake transition if PxIES is getting set to the same values as PxIN. So if there is a bit on PxIFG we did get an edge just after we set PxIES. */ uint8_t snap = PxIFG; PxIFG = 0; if(snap & BITN){ if(PxIES & BITN) /* emit falling */ else /* emit rising */ } PxIES &= BITN; back &= ~BITN; PxIES |= back; PxIE |= BITN; /* Assume PxIFG is still zero because we don't worry about transients.*/ __enable_interrupt(); And our interrupt handler: uint8_t snap = PxIFG; PxIFG = 0; if(snap & BITN){ PxIES ^= BITN; if(PxIES & BITN) /* emit rising */ else /* emit falling */ }

    ADC sample capture in one port on MSP430

    You would also want to change BIT0 to BIT2 in this line: ADC10AE0 |= BIT0;

    Issues with MSP430G2 HW UART on Ubuntu 14.04

    Make sure you don't use a baud rate faster than 9600 baud; the launchpad G2 doesn't work properly going any faster.
  13. You probably can get decent web performance with the TM4C129. You can't use a naive web server though. I've written an embedded web server for my client (on an ARM chip as well) and can recommend the following: 1) Don't buffer the client request; try to parse the request as the data comes in. 98% of your requests are GETs and do not require buffering. Consequently you can boost the number of sockets you can process at a time. 2) I recommended trying Connection: close because I thought the browser may have been trying to reuse the socket and your code didn't seem to support that. Connection: close is BAD precisely because the client will use more socket resources. So try to reuse the socket. 3) Send etags back on all GETs and parse etags from the client. 304 responses take way less bandwidth. 4) I'm not sure what client.write() does, but it does not seem to distinguish between RAM and flash. LWIP can operate way more efficiently if it does not have to make a second copy of the data. 5) Though you can \n as a line terminator, just send \r\n. Do it. 6) Be nice to the user and send back a 429 when you've received too many web requests. So much nicer than a hang up.

    How fast does this execute?

    Doh, I looked at Tone.cpp again and now it makes sense. I had thought Energia would set up the Timer output directly but it actually toggles the POUT in the interrupt handler. I would expect to see a few microseconds of jitter between the cam pulse and the crankshaft pulse that triggered it, but should be OK.

    How fast does this execute?

    Are you actually getting any output? P2_1 is associated with TimerA1.1. However, Energia's tone() function only works with TimerA0. Choose a different pin that associates with a TimerA0.x output. https://github.com/energia/Energia/blob/master/hardware/msp430/cores/msp430/Tone.cpp
