    TI HDC2010 temp-humidity sensor

    Hi @mph It is good to see someone new contributing code. Nicely written and commented.

    SIM800L using TM4C123GXL and Energia

    I am not sure if Energia supports it on the TM4C123 but try using hardware serial - eg Serial1 or Serial2 instead of software serial http://energia.nu/reference/serial/
  3. The TI store has 10% off selected LaunchPad and tools with free shipping for the next week. http://www.ti.com/store/featured/junemidyear2018.html?HQS=ecm-tistore-promo-junemidyear18-bhp-lp-null-wwe
  4. TI has listed a solution here: http://www.ti.com/tool/MSP-EXP430F5438 http://www.ti.com/tool/cc256xmspbtblesw The CC2650 seems to fit your requirements and you can get additional help on e2e if needed.

    DHT11 library for energia

    My memory must be faulty. I had a quick look at the Adafruit code and don't believe it will work without a fair amount of modification. They are using direct register reads in some cases which is not difficult to fix but they also seem to be blocking and counting loops to determine time which is not good practice. I mostly used the DHT22 but do remember getting the DHT11 working at one point. Most of the libraries seem to handle both. Unfortunately I did not put my code in github or otherwise document it so can't give much more guidance.

    DHT11 library for energia

    In the distant past I have used the Adafruit library with the DHT11 and don't remember having a problem. I normally use V17 of Energia with the G2553. Make sure you get the pins right and list both the pins used and a link to the library when asking for help. Arduino code that makes hardware specific calls will not work without porting whether to a MSP430, Teensy, ESP, etc.
  7. @Balwinder You have double posted your question which is to be avoided. Did you try the modified Energia version I posted above? There are also TI CCS examples and the driverlib I posted above.

    UART on cc3200

    Hi @Amanchaturvedi You don't say whether you are using CCS or Energia.... I have not used the CC3200 in quite some time but the Pxx numbers on the silk screen which are barely legible refer to the package pin numbers - refer to table 3.1 of the datasheet: http://www.ti.com/lit/ds/symlink/cc3200.pdf According to the datasheet there are two UARTs. You can multiplex them with CCS. In Energia it is possible with some LaunchPads to have Serial1 but I don't know if this is possible with the CC3200. Have a look at the pin map and try - probably pin 9 is TX(1) using the standard BoosterPack header nomenclature and Pin 10 is RX(1). Pins 3 and 4 should be regular serial RX and TX respectively.

    Is there an Energia-compatible SD library?

    There are quite a few threads and links to SD libraries in the forum. Do a search for “energia SD” or something similar.

    Supported MSP430's

    I did not have problems but only used it one project and did not test all peripherals. I see that the links that Rei Vilo has provided are quite recent and by people who are more familiar with Energia than I am. I would start with those... I find the TSSOP packages easy enough to hand solder.
  11. I am just guessing on the schematic. It looks like pins 15-18 on the shuttle_con go to U1, the BMI160. I suspect you need to make your connections from the LaunchPad to pins 4-7.
  12. Hi @ckd I don't know that anyone is using this device with the TM4C1294 or Energia. Have you tried searching for Arduino libraries and porting them or at least looking at how they have implemented?

    IRremote Library Not Working

    Hi @CptSky You haven't provided much information - no code really, no information on the microcontroller, the pins used and how they are connected, etc. If you have commented out code as described in your first post then of course there will be no output if TIMER_PWM_PIN is P2_3. //pinMode(TIMER_PWM_PIN, OUTPUT); //digitalWrite(TIMER_PWM_PIN, LOW); // When not sending PWM, we want it low I don't think it is possible to give meaningful help without more information.

    Supported MSP430's

    I have developed for a couple of other MSP430 versions that were not already in Energia, although not lately. The easiest way is to start with something quite similar and modify pins_energia.h and modify the boards.txt file as needed. The G2955 is a nice microcontroller that might meet your needs. If so, I have placed the pins_energia.h file and directions for modification of boards.txt and installation here. It was developed for, and the directions for installation are for Energia V17.

    I2C and MMA8452/MMA8451 accelerometer

    I have two MSP-EXP430G2 V1.5 LaunchPads and have used them for many years without a problem with serial print on various versions of Windows including 7, 8, and 10. I have also made many custom boards using the G2553 without a problem. Having said that, I would not recommend the MSP-EXP430G2 LaunchPad for developing the MSP430. Get one of the newer LaunchPads like the F5529, FR2433, or FR6989. They work well with Energia if you want to use that, can be used to program the G2553 if you really want to use that (and the only reason I can think of is the DIP package but it isn't that much more difficult to solder the larger SMD packages), and don't have the awful emulator that is on the MSP-EXP430G2. Further they don't cost much more if any and TI frequently puts them on sale sometimes with free shipping. You will have far fewer problems flashing and with serial on any of the newer LaunchPads. I do all G2553 development by connecting to a F5529 LaunchPad. To test your LaunchPads, pull the G2553 DIP microcontroller on the "bad" boards and put them in the good board to see if they work. If you haven't done that before then my method is to pry them slowly by alternating between the ends with a very small screwdriver. Be careful and insert slowly and evenly making sure all pins are seated as you go. If they work in the good board then maybe something is wrong with the other LaunchPads. If they don't work then probably something is wrong with G2553 - perhaps they saw more than 3.6V? Do they still flash a LED?
