  1. I just discovered an impressive Arduino program called Bitlash in a video demo http://pinocc.io/blog/building-the-internet-of-things/preview-pinoccio-api/ (about the Pinoccio mesh networking module). It lets you define and run tasks from a shell. Has anyone tried porting it to the MSP430?
  2. I've ordered the sensor so when it arrives I will test and report. Also ordered the AM2302 temp/humidity sensor so we'll see how that goes, too.
  3. I'm new at all this, but will this work with the MSP430F5529 LaunchPad? If not, any guidelines for patching it?
  4. Thanks, abecedarian. After installing CCS I was able to make the sample apps work. But now you seem to be saying that I need additional software to fully use the 5529. My general impression trying to get into this is that there are bits and pieces of information scattered all over TI's website, and all over the Internet. Am I missing something? Is there a "hand-holding" tutorial or document anywhere?
  5. Thanks. I had no idea that Energia requires CCS (downloading it now). Where is this documented?
  6. Oops, I may have originally posted this in the wrong location. Anyway, no joy: Just got my new LaunchPad MSP430F5529 from TI. I can't even tell if Energia is talking to it (the built-in "out of box" LaunchPad demo app seems to work, and it does appear as a mass storage device in Windows.). Connected to USB on a Dell PC, Windows XP. Drivers installed. System rebooted (several times). Don't know what to set for serial port: the choices I'm offered are COM1 (which seems to maybe be a real, physical serial port) and COM3. Neither one works: when I try to upload any sketch, including
  7. Hi. Total LaunchPad newbie here. Still trying to get it to connect with my PC. Frustrating!

Neither one works: when I try to upload any sketch, including an empty one, all I get (after a short wait) is this error message: No unused FET found. (Huh?) I've tried both the 16MHz and 25MHz settings for
