  1. Hoi Joris, Nice to have another ' Dutch guy ' on the forum. Groeten uit Maarssen.
  2. Hallo, Problem is solved. I now use a Windows 10 computer and installed CCS 8. Thunderbirds are go... Greetings, Henk Siewert
  3. Hallo, I have ordered the MSP-EXP430FR2433 from TI. While I am waiting I have installed the MSP-EXP430FR2433 board. I opened the ASCIITable .ino in Energia and clicked the V button. I get the following errors: Energia: 1.6.10E18 (Windows XP), Board:"MSP-EXP430FR2433LP" I:\EnergiaIDE\arduino-builder -dump-prefs -logger=machine -hardware "I:\EnergiaIDE\hardware" -hardware "C:\Documents and Settings\hmjswt\Local Settings\Application Data\Energia15\packages" -tools "I:\EnergiaIDE\tools-builder" -tools "I:\EnergiaIDE\hardware\tools\msp430" -tools "C:\Documents and Settings\h
  4. @zeke This is a very interesting project. Doe you have any idea witch sensors you are going to use an how the communication will be. Maybe Bluetooth or serial ( RS485 )? I have very good results using the Analog TMP36 in monitoring different places in our garden. For logging I use Bluetooth and a PC with local MicroChip 24LC1025 EEPROM backup. I use home made boards with a MSP430G2553IN20 Henk Siewert.
  5. O ja, how about a wether station: Processing is perfect for this sort of things.
  6. Hallo, Why not program it yourself. If you can program a TI LaunchPad you can program almost anything... In Processing. It has a lot op functions. Including voice reporting on all functions and data is saved in .CSV file. In Python, live graphic. Why use third party software when you can do it yourself?

    Hi Trigger, Go back to XP. Microsoft has dropped XP. So what? I am still using tree HP's on XP Pro behind an extra router / hardware firewall and Avast. Never any problem. Energia, and a lot of other stuff for programming embedded, runs perfectly. All those other operating system are just that much trouble. Don't dump something because someone tells you it is old. ( I am 70, so... ). I am still running some very ( even for now ) sophisticated weather, telescope and sun light/color measuring systems based on 2553's on a PC with BASIC! Still using the good old RS232C
  8. Hallo bakey, ( goeie morgen ;-)) ) How about this: I tested this on my MSP-EXP430G2 with a 2553 #include <SPI.h> void setup() { pinMode(LED, OUTPUT); Serial.begin(9600); } void loop() { double ding = 10.15; Serial.print( "<320;" ); Serial.print( ding ); Serial.println( ";" ); // String s = + String(ding) + String(";"); // Serial.println(s); delay( 1000 ); } Works OK. When I use String and + there are conversion errors!
  9. Hallo Neetee, The routines/functions are very generic. Maybe the I2C pins are different. But that is no problem. Just try it. That's the fun of experimenting.That;s why I love this as a hobby. If it is for money, pleas try it and you can pay me royalties. Come on, go for it. Greetings from a very sunny Netherlands.

  11. Hallo, To make is easy: buy a HC05 card and use the TX en RX. Keep it simple... What operating system are you using? Henk Siewert
  12. Hallo, This is nice. Thanks. Henk Siewert
  13. Hallo, Oh, that brings back so much memories. I used to program in FORTRAN. And still do. Here is my Flowchart template.
  14. Hi, Nice to read your commends. I thought I was the only one getting very tired of seeing old things being sold as new. I am using computers since 1967. And I have seen very little new things coming along. Ok, the systems are getting smaller and cheaper. But there is very little real innovation going on. Again and again thing that are already working for years are being renamed and relabeled and sold as something new. Especially programming languages. Just put a new wrapper on some old language and you can sell it as something new. Just glue a couple of things together and you can m
  15. Hallo, Very interesting. When I go to https://simplex1.wik...uction-Set.html I have to log in... Uh, help please... Henk Siewert
  16. @@dubnet, I find this forum very valuable. And I am very grateful for Energia. I have learned my lessen, again. Don't, really DON'T go for the latest release. Specially when there are no release notes on the website. But the real question is: why the change. This makes all the boards I have made not programmable with 17. You can hear me protesting clear to IJsselstein. ( I live in Maarssen...) ;-)
  17. What the F@#$#$ Why change the SDA and SCL? I installed the new 17 version. Programmed a new sensor and I did get a lot of rubbish on my screen. Did a lot of debugging. Nothing. Now I am reading that they changed SDA and SCL. Are they out of their minds? Got back to 16 and my code is OK. Stupid thing to do, this change.
  18. Hallo, Yes, there are bigger ones. I am using 1024 Bits EEPROMS. Costs less then $3.00. You can chain 8 IC's for a total of 8Megabits!. Works like a dream. I have a page about EEPROMS and the LaunchPad on my website. A lot is in dutch but I translated the EEPROM page in English. You can download the source code. http://swtcomp.com/launchpad/eeprom/eeprom.htm
  19. @@roadrunner84 I use EEPROM for my temperature sensor logging. It gives a lot of memory for little money. I have to have an EEPROM dying on me yet. An 512Kbit EEPROM costs about 1 Euro. For my projects I make a stand-alone 2553 and EEPROM. I communicate by Bluetooth. Works very nicely. And I can read the data by using TeraTerm or graphing it in Processing in real time. Well, it works for me. And using EEPROM is really simple and uses almost no memory. So you have more memory for your program. Nice to meet a fellow country man on this forum.
  20. Hallo, Why write to flash? You can use EEPROM. Very easy to do. Lots of space and you can swap/change IC's. Greetings, Henk Siewert
  21. Hallo, I loaded my Launcpad with adc.mpy But where can I find the console window? Greetings from the Netherlands, HenkSWT
  22. Hi, For all you Dutch LaunchPad People: Now there is a Dutch Language LaunchPad Forum on: http://launchpad.swtrocketry.com Voor alle Nederlandstalige LauchPad gebruikers: http://launchpad.swtrocketry.com Is voortgekomen uit het Nederlandstalige Arduino Forum. Groet, Henk Siewert
  23. Hallo Chibiace, Hey? What is that suppose to mean? Doe you guys have real names or just those strange letter jumbles that you are identifying yourself with? Greetings, Henk Siewert
  24. Hallo, This week I received my LaunchPad. I ordered it on the US TI site. To my surprise is was send from the European distribution center that is located just a few kilometers from my house!. I did not know it was located there. I could have walked to the center and picked it up. Until now I used the Arduino for my projects. Right now I am working on a model rocket computer based on the Atmelmega328 processor. You can see a picture of it on http://swtrocketry.com/ComputerWebsite/rockcomp/rockcomp.htm Click on the thumbnail for a bigger image. Sorry the website is in Dutch. I am t
