    mcu's (obviously), programming, statistics.
  1. wow... I've been just lurking on the forum for few past months, and stuff you guys are producing is just amazing. Hopefully I can snatch one of these as soon as they are available on the store.
  2. gotcha, fair enough. which msp430 chip do you have in mind for PADrINO?
  3. wouldn't it be better to make a breakout adaptor? Launchpad -> adaptor -> Arduino shields. Considering TI sells the Launchpad for $4.30, it's be tough sell if PADrINO is priced around $25-30.
  4. Normally, $75 is the price of their TSSOP target boards. This is a good deal. In case anyone who picked this up decides to use it under linux, I wrote my experiences here: http://www.43oh.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=814&start=20 Have fun! I was able to program msp430f55x device and other value line chips using this without issues.
  5. sign me up for 2 of these Booster packs when they come out. Also, if you need testers, sign me up as well. ;-)
  6. uber geeks, you two. :crazy: i've been upgrading the led clock in my kid's room so I can send him a txt msg via bluetooth from an android phone. but it uses atmega168... :silent: EDIT: and here you go. don't hate me cuz it's using avr http://jbremnant.wordpress.com/2011/12/09/led-display-over-bluetooth-with-android/#more-243
  7. Ahh, you noticed. This IWC competition has been taking my time off-hours. Thanks, I'll be sure to share my findings and whatever I learn from it. And also might as lots of noob questions while I take a crack at it.
  8. holy cow. It really has been a long time. Everytime I see your projects, you seem to push the limits of what I thought possible with the launchpad. Great work! :clap:
  9. whoa.. I had to do a double take on the username "jbkim". that's my real name! (i go by my initials)
  10. Geez.. I have been really missing in action this whole year. Been busy with work, kids, studying, etc.. (excuses, excuses) Anyhows, just wanted to share a project I worked on for few weeks over the summer on my spare time. Finally had the chance to do a writeup during this thanksgiving break. This project started as a proof of concept for a mobile application idea my friend and I had. Something else came up, so we didn't see this idea to fruition. However, I thought the technologies we used was interesting and something I haven't yet seen on the Launchpad. So here goes.. you can
  11. My submission with details on this blog post: http://jbremnant.wordpress.com/2011/11/27/ant-between-msp430-and-android/ I can't call it a finished project, but I thought it was worth a shot. The project uses the launchpad to send data wireless to an android phone using ANT+ wireless protocol.
  12. I've also been playing around with HC05 module. I am using this one to test things out. itead bluetooth shield It has a switch to connect directly to the FT232 chip on arduino, so I have been able to simply issue AT commands via terminal (minicom) on linux. I am looking forward to launchpad booster pack for this module.
