  1. I didn't see this posted yet but the porting guide is up: http://www.ti.com/lit/an/slaa656/slaa656.pdfA bit more info about the MSP432 inside.
  2. For people reading this thread in the future, I found the exact cause of the problem. In the SD card code I was turning the interrupts off, but I forgot to turn them on again. When I added the code to turn them on again, this problem disappeared. Hopefully this helps!
  3. Hi All, I am currently building a datalogger with an MSP430FR5969, and I have run into a bug that has completely stumped me. I will try to explain the problem clearly. The main code I am referring to can be found on Github here. My datalogging code follows a specific flow. After the MSP430 is turned on and the watchdog timer is turned off, the uC will wait for the user to press a button, signifying the logging period. The data logger will then read the time from a real time clock, and then set the RTC alarm for the next even 10 second value (10, 20, 30, etc.) and go to sleep. When the 10 sec
  4. Ah, that makes sense. Thanks again!
  5. Hi Greeeg, That did the trick! Thank you very much, I don't know if I would have caught that in a million years! Quick question to help me understand your fix: Does setting the UCSWRST bit reset the USCI module, even if it has already been set? To anyone else reading this thread, I've updated the code in my Github which means the links in my original reply to Greeeg now point to the correct version. Thanks again! - NG
  6. Hi greeeg, Thank you for your quick reply! I'll explain what my problem is below, you may have some insight into what is going wrong. A few months ago I got FatFS working on the TI Tiva launchpad thanks to code that I found online. Now that I switched to the MSP430FR5969, I thought I would go through and change the SPI drivers as you said. All the platform specific code should be in diskio.c, visible here. I also wrote the main function which mounts the SD Card and attempts to open a text file and append some text to it. You can view it here. My problem is this: The main function w
  7. Hi All, I'm attempting to get an SD card working with the MSP430FR5969 (launchpad) and FatFS but I'm having a difficult time. Two questions: 1. Is it possible to get FatFS working with the MSP430? When I did a search of these forums I mostly saw PetitFat being used with MSP430s. Ultimately, PetitFat would be okay but I would prefer FatFS. 2. Has anyone gotten either PetitFat or FatFS working with the MSP430FR5969? If so, would you be willing to share your code or knowledge regarding it? Thank you in advance for any help, Nipun
  8. @@zborgerd, thank you for the links. If I have enough time I will try to adapt the Linux instructions for Mac. Otherwise, I'll just wait until the new energia release. Thanks again!
  9. @@bobnova & zborgerd Thank you for your reply! To answer both of your questions at once, I did try to update the EZ-FET firmware on the Launchpad by first pulling the libmsp430.so from energy, and then running mspdebug --allow-fw-update tilib. I even ran it three times as outlined here but each time it did not work, and did not let me upload. I may try to compile the MSP Debug Stack for mac, but I do not know how successful I will be. Thanks again!
  10. Hi all, I've been lurking for a while but I finally joined up! I recently received the MSP430FR5969 FRAM Launchpad with EnergyTrace, and I'm trying to upload code to it with OS X 10.9.4 and mspdebug. I am successfully able to upload code to the standard Launchpad with the MSP430G2553 but I cannot upload to the FRAM Launchpad. Looking at this makes me think that a work around has not been found yet, is this true? Or has someone gotten the new FRAM Launchpads working with OS X? Thanks in advance for any help!
