    multivac got a reaction from lunakid in programming a msp430g2955 through BSL   
    SUCCESS!!
    so i was able to program the micro with my makeshift tools. ill post the info here in case it`s useful to anyone.
    first though, thanks jazz for the support!!
    apparently the g 2955 uses the old "ROM" style BSL described in salu319e as 1xx,2xx,4xx family bootloader. the specific version reported for mine by TI

    Even more impressive! Thanks for showing us what great projects can be accomplished even without all the tools. Too often people put up false barriers; "I could do that, if only I had a 3D printer. If only I had a CNC mill. If only I could program..."

    Man! You must have a lot more patience than I do!
    When you build V. 2 :thumbup: ; I'll send you some copper coated steel rod. It's filler rod for tig welding, but the copper coating will make it easy to solder/braze.

    hehe, too bad i dont have a pic of the wire rolls before. i straightened it by pulling it tight against a fixed metal tube(my workbench`s leg), which gave me a kink free, but slightly curved wire. I made a jig to put the three main booms together, so that went fast. the chassis, roof, and the two tiny thingies up top where made without support, and took some time.

    Thanks Rob. I tried Elecrow as you suggested. Really nice results. Boards came to about 10 USD per board, with components, dhl shipping etc, when making 10 boards. Quite a lot of small components, connectors etc, so I think it's a good price. They also soldered 0402 components very nicely.

    Hey guys, so I`ve been working on this project for a while now, and wanted to show it here because you are a cool bunch.
    if i mess up, the pics are too big, or  whatever, im sorry. let me know and ill fix it asap.
    the title is pretty explanatory so here are some pics of the thing, and the associated mess (if i actually manage to attach pictures correctly)



    i know there is nothing particularly interesting in this from the microcontroller point of view, but maybe someone will like it.
    its sort of based on a liebherr lr1750 crawler crane in case anyone is interested. it is controlled with an ir remote kindly donated to the project, mostly made from scrap from my junk bin and some chips i got from the VERY generous TI`s sample program. The base, for example, is made from an old hdd, and the hole thing is screwed to, and pivots around, the main bearing.




     
    Some stuff i had to buy though, like the leds.
    I was thinking what could I do with a lot of solid conductor wire i pulled from the walls in my house when i changed the [way too old] electrical installation. i thought a lattice structure would be fun, and i have to say, its amazing how rigid the thing got. i also wanted to do some switching led driver experimenting. I used a TI TPS61199 led driver with 32 "5050" leds, that have 3 chips per package, so its 96 leds in all, at 17 mA each. the leds are mounted on a structure that is supposed to resemble a section of Eero Saarinen`s twa flight center. a sort of rebar core type thingy for the roof.



    i wanted to do a solid thing for the lamp, but it proved somewhat hard, i still might though. I

    multivac reacted to JWoodrell in preliminary WS2812B 8x8 Matrix Booster Pack   
    I layed out the initial planning for an 8x8 matrix using the WS2812B LED's Rob posted about recently.  There is a 2.1x5.5 barrel jack to provide power cause 64 LED's will draw a lot more than a USB cable can provide (almost 4 amps at 60ma each).  so I provided a 3.3v regulator to power the launchpad's VCC line.  there is a single decoupling cap shared between every other LED since the power pins are next to each other(pretty close), should still be enough. half of the LEDs are spun 180 degrees to make routing the data lines nicer.
     
    I haven't worked with these before so I don't know if a string 64 long will be an issue for the LP...i don't know the timing.
     
    right now it just takes P1.0 to the data in of the first LED, and daisy chains the rest.
     
     
    thoughts, ideas?
     
    Rob said he can get these LEDs for $0.13 each at >100 so its only 8 bucks worth of LEDs... although soldering will be umm difficult without a one pass reflow setup.
     
    the tops of the header legs will need to be clipped so they're flush  but I dislike SMD headers.

    multivac reacted to HanzZ in QSimKit - MSP430 simulator   
    Hi,
     
    as my diploma thesis I'm writting MSP430 simulator called QSimKit. It's not finished yet, but it's in state when it's starting to be useful and I would like to get more people to test it, share their opinions, find bugs and basically to create community of people interested in MSP430 simulation.
     
    Releases:
    Version 0.0.3 (2014-02-04), Changelog At first some facts about QSimKit:
    It's written under GPLv2+ in C++/Qt, has been tested on Linux or Windows together with msp430gcc. It supports peripherals (as plugins) written in C++ or Python. Currently there's LED, oscillator, button and HD44708 LCD (not fully implemented yet). MCUs are plugins too and theoretically it's possible to add support for more MCUs (not just MSP430). It can support all MSP430 variants, but only few are supported right now, because I haven't created package data for all MSP430 variants yet. In graphical user interface (Check screenshot), you can do following:
    Add peripherals, connect them to MCU. See the source code of program you are simulating together with Dwarf debugging data (you can see the value of local variables for example) and current instruction. Step the simulation, add breakpoints based on PC register or value of memory. Track pins in oscilloscope-like view. See the registers and other important values from MCU (frequency, BasicClock registers, ...) MSP430 MCU plugin can do following:
    Load ELF/A43 code. Supports all instructions. Supports BasicClock module (TImerA/TimerB). Support for USCI-SPI [NEW in 0.0.3] Support for USART-SPI [NEW in 0.0.3] Initial USI support (just SPI mode). Peripherals:
    Button LCD - HD44708 (only initial support) LED Crystal Oscillator SD Card (only initial support) [NEW in 0.0.2]  
    As I stated earlier, it's not finished yet, but some testers to help me testing are welcome. I can also help anyone who would like to help with development. There is no development documentation yet, but if you tell me what you would like to do, I can write relevant docs to help you.
     
    If you think you have found a bug or you have some feature request, please create ticket on GitHub, I don't want this forum thread to be an issue tracker. You can also find me on IRC in #qsimkit at freenode or as HanzZ in #43oh channel.
