  1. Here .. some teaser to cool your nerves down.
  2. +1 , its like ... "Hi ... I'm nobody, just create a new hang out place for Tiva C/ Stellaris launchpad community, I don't have anything special to offer, its you that have to contribute first, join us" Just another fucking spammer, ban and delete please.
  3. Are you sure you're browsing at the correct forum ? Here, let me help you, click here -> http://www.coocox.org/Forum/index.php
  4. Yeah, it was easily expected, thats why I was emphasizing to use it asap. But look at the bright side, the extra exposure from Hackaday on this forum is a good thing though. <winking to @bluehash> No problem John, glad to hear that you're about to receive them, have fun.
  5. UPDATE : It looks like the coupon code is no longer valid. -- ADMIN EDIT-- Below is a statement from TI. --ADMIN EDIT Ok, not actually free, but I think this deal should be good enough for everybody, just see for yourself my invoice below, not bad eh ? A 25$ coupon code from Texas Instruments. Coupon code: National-1yr Its valid until 30-September. https://estore.ti.com Ordered two EK-TM4C123GXL launchpads for just $0.98 and with free shipping !
  6. Hmm ... looks like mine will be the rare collector item someday.
  7. This kind of thread become an epic isn't it ? Made similar thread while ago here for Stellaris LaunchPad -> http://forum.stellarisiti.com/topic/340-which-chip-revision-in-your-ek-lm4f120xl-stellaris-launchpad/ , because TI is still using eXperimental chip at their LaunchPad product. Now, with the new Tiva C series, even though it has a beefier chip (with hardware PWM & QEI) than previous Stellaris version, still they're using the "X" chip XM4C123GH6PMI6. Really wonder if the LaunchPad product will ever used a true production released batch mcu ? The photo below sho
  8. I thought they're shipping now ? Mine arrived at early July, though it was ordered back in mid April, posted the box pic here -> http://forum.stellarisiti.com/topic/580-tiva-sighting/page-2#entry3409
  9. Same here, arrived earlier, what is your batch code ? Mine as printed at the box.
  10. Just checked TI web site on my order status, they moved the date to 07/12/2013.
  11. -> http://forum.stellarisiti.com/topic/580-tiva-sighting/
  12. How about "ARMPit" , sounds fun !
  13. My Tiva launchpad's estimated ship date at 06/15/2013, 2 months to go.
  14. Yeah, it is the plain old LM4F230H5QR with the new name and new part number.
  15. Ok, its confirmed, Tiva is the new name and all LM4xx part numbers will be replaced with new TM4xxx. Source , Tiva C Series ARM Cortex-M Microcontrollers -> http://www.ti.com/litv/pdf/spmt284 Also in the new datasheet for TM4C123GH6PM (available thru TI site) used in this new Tiva Launchpad, stated it is identical to LM4F230H5QR, go figure. So now it has built in PWM and QEI module that Stellaris Launchpad doesn't have since its using lower end chip LM4F120H5QR. So no more "Stellaris" ?
  16. Looking at the board layout, its like a perfect copy of Stellaris Launchpad, don't you think ?
  17. Spotted at the latest Stellaris LM4F120H5QR Rev A1/A3/B0 Errata document dated April 2013, weird huh ? Link -> http://www.ti.com/lit/er/spmz611g/spmz611g.pdf
  18. Curious if this new Arm Cortex M4 (without the F suffix) will be the cheaper version from their M4-F brethren ? I can not find any reference to this Tiva C Series TM4C1233H6PM mcu at TI site. Edit : Ok, blame it on my itching impulse nerves , lets see what happened in next 6 weeks.
  19. New erratas, for the rev Ax series. Stellaris LM4F120H5QR Rev A1/A3 Errata (Rev. F) dated 11 Mar 2013 -> http://www.ti.com/litv/pdf/spmz611f also TI separated the revision Bx series into different document Stellaris LM4F120H5QR Rev B0/B1 Errata same date -> http://www.ti.com/litv/pdf/spmz764 So its been a while, anyone received other than A3 chip ?
  20. Wow .. thanks Bingo for the finding ! Sceen shot of the current datasheet (rev 29 Aug 2012) at page 664 on the TCACT subject, for reference just in case someone stumbled on it in the future.
  21. That feature is part of motion control peripheral module that is available only at higher class MCUs like LM4F230 or LM4F210 series, while the LM4F120 series like in the Stellaris Launchpad which is a low end version does not have it.
  22. @abecedarian , thanks for the update, so even the latest batch still using the A3 chip. Looks like your chip is newer -> 28ARKQW vs 27AROQW like mine, just curious if TI still has tons of this A3 chips at their warehouse. Personally, I won't be bothered for a refund, especially bought both for $5 each, dirt cheap I would say, as MattTheGeek said, probably it will be ended up as collector's item should someday they've fixed it.
  23. Thanks for the update, its now ! The details at 5.3 release notes is not convincing enough, 5.2.1 is still good enough for me with stellaris launchpad.
  24. Yeah, it was available when I spotted it, and didn't download it, probably they found serious bugs at last minutes. Current ver still working fine in my vm, guess can live without this new one yet.
