  1. +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.



    Seems a little redundant as there is a solid community here as well as at e2e.ti.com.  Seems to me that one or two larger communities are better than many smaller communities.  I have a hard time just keeping up with the handful of communities that I follow.  :)

  2. TI pulling the code isn't really a surprise after it being featured on Hackaday. Let's see how things pan out, I did get an order in before that (CC3300 BP, as I already have some LaunchPads).


    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>   ;)



    My order shipped last night and is on it's way from Dallas via FedEx! I guess Tivas are in stock and available.


    Thanks @@BravoV for letting us know about this.


    No problem John, glad to hear that you're about to receive them, have fun.  :P

  3. UPDATE : It looks like the coupon code is no longer valid.

    -- ADMIN EDIT--

    Below is a statement from TI.


    Thanks for sharing TI with your community! The TI eStore coupon code mentioned here was intended for the specific group of email recipients and unfortunately isn’t able to support broader distribution. The coupon code has now been closed to all but the direct email recipients, but TI is honoring all orders that were placed prior to the closure. To see future deals from TI, we hope you will “like” our Facebook page www.ti.com/facebook.



    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.
    Ordered two EK-TM4C123GXL launchpads for just $0.98 and with free shipping !  :D

  4. This kind of thread become an epic isn't it ?  :lol:


    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 should be self explanatory, and yes, the ICDI part is also using the exact same part XM4C123GH6PMI6.



  5. My Tiva launchpad's estimated ship date at 06/15/2013, 2 months to go.  <_<



    Just checked TI web site on my order status, they moved the date to 07/12/2013.   :angry:

  6. Delivery date for my Tiva Launchpad was just updated to 6/21/2013... and my Stellaris Launchpad shipped - dooh! :rolleyes:


    My Tiva launchpad's estimated ship date at 06/15/2013, 2 months to go.  <_< 

  7. 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" ?   :huh:

  8. 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.   :huh:


    Edit :


    Ok, blame it on my itching impulse nerves :lol: , lets see what happened in next 6 weeks.



  9. Just got the 2 new ones , also LX chips.


    But i never would have guessed they they were that hancicapped :-(



    TI says timerbased port toggle is a No..No on the current chips


    Well it was cheap.




    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.


  10. @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.  :D
