  1. Getting close to the RasPi. This time it even has a HDMI port. http://www.newark.com/jsp/bespoke/bespoke7.jsp?bespokepage=newark/en_US/landing/beaglebone/beaglebone.jsp&CMP=EMC-22606662 More details of the BeagleBone-Black at the circuitco page with pics! via reddit.
  2. Wow! Your close. Thanks for the update. Few handy links, found by querying Arduino and Kill-A-Watt http://www.mcqn.com/weblog/mazzini_moni ... _appliance http://jarv.org/pwrmon.shtml http://www.gekgasifier.com/2010/04/powe ... n-arduino/ http://pluggy.is-a-geek.com/arduino/index.html HTH.
  3. o_o nice! One question though - Is the schematic as simple as connecting the VCC, GND, DATA and CLK?
  4. Someone was able to connect to the Launchpad using a MAC. If anyone is using a Mac as a development machine, this may be of help: http://processors.wiki.ti.com/index.php ... h_Homebrew
  5. you should be able to. Looks like they do the same thing. 8-bit serial in, parallel out.
  6. Welcome to the forums! I'm on your easter egg
  7. A lot of MSP430 reverse engineering stuff by Travis Goodman.
  8. Nice writeup. If you can hook it up to Eclipse, there is no need to learn GDB commands(maybe minimal)... and you get a graphical GUI debugger.
  9. Wow.. Thanks! Looking forward to your board files. Liked your Launchpad shield idea.
  10. Hi Geekdoc! Thanks for the site suggestion. How did you learn to make them. Any references?
  11. I'm using some of his tutorials already! Very easy to understand and implement.
  12. Here is their link: http://www.sparkfun.com/commerce/tutori ... als_id=108
  13. Thanks plazma! Sparkfun has some good tutorials on using Eagle for schematic and PCB design. All their designs are based on Eagle.
  14. I was planning to get some PCBs done for my Launchpad when they come in. This will also be a good starting point for me to learn schematic PCB design. Does anyone have any suggesstions? I know Eagle is widely used. Is this mostly preferred? Thanks!
  15. Gatesphere, did you look at low power RF for the MSP430? Looks like they are based over zigbee. http://focus.ti.com/mcu/docs/mcuorphan. ... ntId=24576
  16. Hi there, Has anyone received their TI launchpad kit (MSP-EXP430G2) yet? I'm still waiting on two of mine. Its hopefully here by next week.
