    Advice for proper chip selection

    In general, the G2xx chips have 16 interrupt-capable pins (if they have that many pins at all). For development, I'd suggest the G2553 on the LaunchPad.
  2. Are you using an UART? If yes, which one?

    Delay() and sleep() have different timing cycles.

    The delay() function is part of the official Arduino API. It is implemented with a busy loop, based on the CPU clock. The sleep() function is not part of the official Arduino API. It powers down the CPU, and measures time based on the VLO, which doesn't have a accurately specified frequency to begin with and has much higher temperature and voltage coefficients than other clock sources.

    msp flash not working (MSP430F5529)

    The variables i2 and i22 are normal variables (in RAM), and are automatically reinitialized whenever the device resets. The only place where you read from the flash is in the blink1() function. To get the values from the flash, you must read from the flash at the beginning of the program.

    My Stupid Question Space

    Section 8.2.4 of the User's Guide says:
  6. Please see table 9 of the LIS3DH datasheet; you are not allowed to apply voltages greater than 0.3 V to the SDA/SCL pins when VACC = 0 V. You must disconnect these signals before powering down the chip. (And when it's powered down, ACC_INT1 might be floating; you have to deal with that.) I'd guess VACC gets powered through R8/R9, or through the chip's ESD protection diodes (which go from any I/O to VDD).

    Help getting watchdog to work

    With SMCLK running at about 1 MHz, and a divider of 1 = WDTIS__128M, the expiration should happen after about 134 seconds. Anyway, Energia uses the watchdog interval timer interrupt to implement micros() and delay().

    Sending data via USB to another USB

    The G2553 chip itself does not have USB support. You can go through the LaunchPad's "application"/"backchannel" UART; you firmware then just needs to write/read the UART. You also need an application on the host PC to read from one COM port and write to another. But why use USB? Why can't you control the solenoid directly from the LaunchPad?

    driverlib crc32 problem

    In theory, the function call overhead should have taken care of the one-cycle delay. It appears that in practice, the compiler managed to optimize that away somehow. (I guess your MAP_ functions do not go to ROM but to your own copy of driverlib, and the compiler inlined all of it.)

    driverlib crc32 problem

    This sounds like a hardware bug. Can you reproduce it with a program that uses neither Energia nor driverlib?

    Where do I find the latest Energia Source code?

    https://github.com/energia/Energia and https://github.com/energia/msp430-lg-core But the latest release there is 1.6.8.

    Implementing an I2C slave device.

    Clavier's Short Guide to I²C Slaves on the MSP430x2xx Family Read section of the User's Guide, and the example code. Slave mode is somewhat easier than master mode because you do not have to care about getting the transaction sequence correct; you just react to the master's requests. The slave address is an arbitrary but unique 7-bit number. Just put it into the I2COA ("own address") register; the USCI module will automatically handle transactions to this address. You do not need to configure a clock source; the clock signal is supplied by the master. When the master has written a byte, you get an RXIFG interrupt. Your interrupt handler must read that byte from RXBUF. (You can set the TXNACK bit after reading RXBUF, this will tell the master to stop after the following byte.) When the master wants to read a byte, you get a TXIFG interrupt. Your interrupt handler must write a byte to TXBUF. If your code is slow, the USCI module will automatically stop the bus via clock stretching until you have reacted. You can get notifications when start and stop conditions happen (STTIFG and STPIFG), but that is not always necessary. The I²C protocol itself defines only byte reads and writes. If you have registers, you have to handle the register address yourself. Typically, the first write after a start condition is the register address, and all following writes (and all reads) are from/to the specified register (and often the register address automatically increments). As a slave, you have no control over what the master does; you must react to any write and read requests at any time. (If you really have nothing to read, just send the last byte again, or some garbage byte.)

    Basic MSP430 GPIO Macros

    This is how I do my GPIO initialization. It doesn't handle any later GPIO accesses, but it's a nice table, and smaller and faster than configuring the bits one by one. /* use 0 or 1 to set the output level */ #define OUTPUT 0x00 /* default */ #define INPUT 0x02 #define PULL_DOWN 0x04 #define PULL_UP 0x05 #define REDUCED_DRIVE 0x00 /* default */ #define FULL_DRIVE 0x08 #define GPIO 0x00 /* default */ #define PERIPHERAL 0x10 struct digital_io_init_f5529 { u8 P1[8]; u8 P2[8]; u8 P3[8]; u8 P4[8]; u8 P5[8]; u8 P6[8]; u8 P7[8]; u8 P8[3]; u8 PJ[4]; }; static void init_port(const u8 *init, unsigned int count, uint16_t int base_address) { uint16_t out = 0, dir = 0, ren = 0, ds = 0, sel = 0; uint16_t bit; for (bit = 1; count > 0; init++, bit <<= 1, count--) { if (*init & 1) out |= bit; if (!(*init & INPUT)) dir |= bit; if (*init & PULL_DOWN) ren |= bit; if (*init & FULL_DRIVE) ds |= bit; if (*init & PERIPHERAL) sel |= bit; } HWREG16(base_address + OFS_PAOUT) = out; HWREG16(base_address + OFS_PADIR) = dir; HWREG16(base_address + OFS_PAREN) = ren; HWREG16(base_address + OFS_PADS ) = ds; HWREG16(base_address + OFS_PASEL) = sel; } static void init_ports(const struct digital_io_init_f5529 *init) { init_port(init->P1, 8 + 8, PA_BASE); init_port(init->P3, 8 + 8, PB_BASE); init_port(init->P5, 8 + 8, PC_BASE); init_port(init->P7, 8 + 3, PD_BASE); init_port(init->PJ, 4, PJ_BASE); } void init() { init_ports(&(const struct digital_io_init_f5529){ .P4[4] = PERIPHERAL | OUTPUT, .P4[5] = PERIPHERAL | INPUT, .P7[0] = GPIO | INPUT | PULL_UP, .P7[1] = GPIO | OUTPUT | FULL_DRIVE, /* ... */ }); }

    ADC 16-bit on MSP430F2013

    If the Energia libraries do not have support fo the SD16 module, then your only choice is to program the registers directly. Which is what these examples show.
