  1. Thanks Marko.. what LCD controllers does your visualTFT UI support? - Can we use it on a custom board. - What is the licence cost? For the demo limit.. by 7 components, what do you mean.. can you explain?
  2. Are you from mikroE.. if you are, then good! We can ask you questions.
  3. Looks like an LM3SXXX. No idea which one. Code: http://www.github.com/TKJElectronics/Multimedia_Streaming_Client http://www.libstock.com/projects/view/366/multimedia-streaming-client

    Hi Ivitro, Welcome...which ARM core do you work on?
  5. Another good tutorial from Andy Brown... details wiring as well as communication protocol between the STM32 and the ILI9481 display driver.
  6. Andy Brown has a wonderful article on interfacing a touch screen with the STM32 (M3 version)... but it can be easily ported to other cores. The touch screen driver is an ADS7843 resistive chip from TI.. which is pretty common. The display is a 320x240 LCD with an ILI9325 controller. He shares his calibration routine too.
  7. There was a commenter on an earlier posted post explaining just this. He does say he's using a Discovery kit. Hopefully this helps you. All credit goes to "Tony": /* * Test code for the Discovery Board. In this version we use the DMA to store the information * of two converted channels (channel 14 and channel 15) into a pre-defined variable. The method * is continuous and the value of the ADC are continuously stored in the variable. */ //==Includes== #include "stm32f10x.h" #include "STM32vldiscovery.h" //==Definitions== #define ADC1_DR_Address ((uint32_t)0x4001244C) //==Global Vari
  8. Like the title suggests, does anyone have the Stellaris m4 kit? Looks like the demo software has alot to offer. It even has an OLED-color onboard,...It's like a tiny scope.
  9. Looking to what to do with my Discovery kit( not forgetting my Stellaris kit), came across this nice design of using a master 8x8 rgb block to control similar blocks around it. It is driven by a STM32F4105 microcontroller. Below is another project inspired by it:
  10. ooh I can help! Make sure "Enable Support for GCC Extensions" box is checked. Properties->Build->TMS470 Compiler->Language Options. Let me know!
  11. @Fred, they are all ARM microcontrollers. It's nice to see what others have.
  12. OSH Park or Open Source Hardware Park is a new pcb service from Laen who handles dorkbotPDX- Yeayyyy more purple. Most of you must be familiar with it.
  13. Your best bet are the ARm chips from ST or TI. STM32 has three hobby boards as of now( STM32VL, STM32F0 and STM32F4). TI has the Stellaris series of ARMs(M3, M4F). I personally prefer the Stellaris controllers, but the STM32 has been becoming popular since the introduction of the discovery kits last year. If you don't wish to fight alot with setting up the development environment, the $99 for the stellaris kits is worth it. The STM32 kits(~$20) are good too, but the dev setup is kind of difficult for a new person. Hope this helps.
  14. Could anyone point me with a free ide/compiler for the Discovery kit. http://st.com/stm32f4-discovery no longer works. I was looking at Atollic, but cannot find the size of the code limit. Any help is appreciated. Also, I'm on Windows.
  15. Hi zeke.. this is only the compiler, right? What are the available frontends? Thanks for the link.
  16. Hi Mathias, I have been using a Stellaris Microcontroller Kit from TI - LM3S9B92. They have a software suite - Stellarisware which is tailored for all their kits and one of the best in the market. You can download the software and be blinking an LED/USB/PWM within 15 minutes using their APIs. The programming environment I use is Code Composer Studio. It is free(upto 32K , I think). Some kits offer CCS free when you connect the kit in. I got CCS for $1 a few months back. Usual price is $499. Other than that, the kit has been perfect for me. A few issues you should keep in mind: - Having a
  17. Admin, please move if not in right location. Found this gem while looking for projects on the stellaris evalbot. Since everyone is posting up projects, I thought I'll add a few too. He uses the stellaris in host mode to read from a usb stick. The bot board also has an ethernet connector. Anyway, here is the link. Enjoy! Does anyone else have an Evalbot. I have the Stellaris CAN kit, but the evalbot looks fun. It has an OLED too.
  18. How do you know 6 I2C and 16 PWMs? Where did you find the datasheet from?
  19. IFixit does pretty neat teardowns of devices. This time it was the Macbook Pro. Behind the logic board there is a Stellaris LM4FFS1AH. Anyone know what a 32bit floating point Cortex-M4 is doing in an MBP? The particular one is not listed on TI's site. Here are all the available ones.
  20. Hello! I found this forum via 43oh. I'm just a lurker over there, but have a question related to the Stellaris eval kits. I have an educational J-Link JTAG from Segger. It works well with gdb/eclipse. I was wondering if there is any support for the J-Link in CCS.... or am I constrained to the ICDI debugger that comes with the evaluation kit. Thanks for setting this forum up.
