    I'll pick the remainding 13? what is their price? thanks

    MSP430 Reflow Oven

    Ya think? but i ain't no paying no $3450... that would be kinna worst... Hahahaha so you think i am Chinese? i am starting to wish i was since most of our jobs are moving overseas, i was being sarcastic... sorry i just realized your are not an American... regards Luis-chan

    Hello Zeke, Naah, profesionally made hobby reflow ovens go for as little as ~$250 T-962 = ~$250, T-962 INFRARED IC HEATER REFLOW WAVE OVEN BGA T962 800W 180

    3D LED CUBE Kit

    Hello mtlevine, we are not shipping RGB kits yet, since we are still working on the firmware and the daughter card and revup the main board, and these do not use neither Lauchpad nor Arduino, Yep we sold out on eBay over this weekend amazingly 80-90% of our bussiness is overseas, and we have a backorder on power supplies, the price here in the forum is cheaper since we are not paying all the fees to ebay etc. perhaps you might want to start with a single color kit, as zeke pointed the text on the digram had a typo but the figures inside are correct, We have single color kits available, the kits come without LEDs, we were giving free LEDs while they lasted, we bought 100K for a discounted price. but they're gone. i might be able to dig one bag out but they are not the brightest... PM me if you're interested, how good are you with the soldering iron? regards Luis

    PADrINO = MSP430 with Arduino's footprint

    The Launchpad is a unique and special platform. That's why we redesign. Thanks Matt, let me ask you this, why do we use Launchpad? is it because is cheap? i refuse to think that is the only reason, i believe we like the MSP430 architecture and the support tools (perhaps i am a dreamer?? ), in this case i love CCS, hence why would be unique or what makes it special?, if we can readopt the Arduino's form factor and have access to things already designed avoiding to "redesign the wheel" everytime. One big draw back from MSP430 is that does not have a lot of processors that support 5V. But is interesting to see the reaction of the MSP430 comunity on a thing like that. I would like to know what the full spectrum of users think about a system like that? from newbies to the real thing, Regards Luis

    Hello Jim, thanks for your inputs. very well said. regards Luis

    DIY Mini Launchpad

    oPossum, Very nice job! i would add, though, the little weird port that the Launchpad has next to the headers right-top hand side, that port is so that you can plug in eZMSP_2500 or the eZMSP_2650 wireless boards, or just the emulator Stick, on the launch pad the eZ-FET also doubles as a serial port which in this case we are loosing it all together, i know we do not need a comunication port all the time, but would be a nice feature to have should you need one (the little weird port that is) And one more thing, i would call it "Launchpad-PRO" although i am not sure if "Launchpad" is a trademark from TI, well we'll see... regards Luis

    Any body willing to part with a wire-wrap tool+wire?

    Hello Neutron, check your PMs regards Luis

    PADrINO = MSP430 with Arduino's footprint

    Jim, that was an excellent post, mostly true,in the other hand i would ask you how many platforms have you used that are Arduino compatible form factor? i can tell you that for example FEZ does not use the same libraries as Arduino but translated versions, most of the others have their own versions of the IDE. the only question you did not answer, why don't we have an MSP430 with ARDUINO form factor? we need to start somewere... I do not think Arduino was an overnight thing, mostly developed by the comunity that is what makes Arduino so popular!! not the MCU or the hardware, but really the community working on it Merrry Christmast and happy New Year Luis

    Hello Neutron, are you looking for the hand tool or the electric gun? how much wire do you need and colors? do you need also the unwraping tool? regards Luis

    PADrINO = MSP430 with Arduino's footprint

    Jim, thanks for your feedback, but you missed the whole point of showing the other processors with Arduino's footprint??!!, what i am trying to show to the MSP430 comunity that the vast majority of MCU families have a processor with that form factor why would that be??? what are we missing??!! what do they know that we don't?? and we are redesigning the wheel every single time, there is a shield for most everything!, LCD, BT, CDMA, Motor controllers, AUDIO, video, Reflow Oven... you name it - DONE..., Now look at the post from EngIP on this thread, a single quick and dirty C header gives you access to the basic arduino lenguaje, Can you imagine what an serious effort from a MUCH BIGGER player can do, just hold on there for few months, by the way, i do not like Arduino although it brings on my the laziness since much everything is written and available but when doing serious development hits the wall fair and square and not tools to debug, the majoriry of the time i like better to write my own Assy or C since i like to keep track of my bits and bytes... I like CCS and the tools to debug which are not existant on ARDUINO but that is a different question. i am guilty of taking ARDUINO developed code and port it to MSP430 just because i like the tool... Later. Luis

    PADrINO = MSP430 with Arduino's footprint

    Hello EngIP - Nope, although that seems to be a an interesting approach, For some reason most of the people believe that all the magic is done by Processing, where processing is just used to interpret the Arduino programs and create the hex compiled files for Atmel MCU, all the underlaying C/C++ libraries are pretty much common with a minor MCU code specific. Is like using a basic interpreter to read, compile and create the equivalent assembly code for the processor, in this case Processing reads predefined macros and translate that to underlaying C/C++. Perl, Phyton (which is just another abstraction of Perl) or C or any other high level/ high power lenguaje can be used to accomplish the same. Well i am not a software expert by any means, though. regards Luis

    Out of curiosity, can you give some pointers? Wait... A interpreter? I have not recollection whatsoever (Clinton's style ) regards
