  1. Not all is lost.... so for the benefit of other users who want to use the Sharp LCD with a MSP430G2553 micro, I eventually found this library which works https://github.com/astuder/MSP430-sharp-LS013B4DN02-memory-display Note to others... make sure you know which version you have SHARPMemLCDTxt display; // configured for 43oh BoosterPack versus SHARPMemLCDTxt display(6,5); // configured for official TI BoosterPack and comment out the one you don't use. There is also other code provided which is commented out that may be applicable.
  2. Ok fair enough. That is what I thought. Thanks for the quick clarification. Much appreciated. Just a pity this is not made clearer in the user documentation as one can easily assume that any MSP430 device would work as not much is written about memory requirements. On the other hand my mistake for not doing the simple math as you have done.
  3. I recently purchased a Sharp memory LCD Booster Pack I downloaded the library files: LCD_SharpBoosterPack_SPI_main I opened up the example program and tried to upload onto my brand new MSP Launchpad (G2553). It returned the following error energia-0101e0016/hardware/tools/msp430/bin/../lib/gcc/msp430/4.6.3/../../../../msp430/bin/ld.exe: LCD_SharpBoosterPack_SPI_main.cpp.elf section `.bss' will not fit in region `ram' energia-0101e0016/hardware/tools/msp430/bin/../lib/gcc/msp430/4.6.3/../../../../msp430/bin/ld.exe: region `ram' overflowed by 672 bytes
  4. Wow! Just what I'm looking for... a counter library and some code for the sharp display. I have a somewhat related question. I'm working on a pulse counting application, which has to run off batteries. When the uC need to pulse count, it will have to do this for up to 8 minutes at a stretch. Simply using the delay function between getting the pulse count and determining pulse frequency will drain the battery quick enough. As the msp430 has a pretty fast wake up I'm looking at what options can I turn off to make the uC sleep between the 1 second periodic updates, without jeopardising th
  5. I decided to dust off my MSP430G2553 launchpad again and try and use it for a new proof of concept prototype application which needs either an OLED or small TFT display screen. So naturally one starts with a quick online google search to see what is out there currently. Searching for ILI9340 and MSP430 threw up this post. Happy day's I thought, this will speed things up on the TFT side as very little is out there. As you know there are 2 IDE's and coding methodologies I can use for the MSP430's. There is the quick and simple Energia and there is the more comprehensive Eclipse-based CCS.
