    Any Unique MSP432 Project Ideas?

    I used the free shipping week in TI store to buy an MSP432 launchpad. I bought it out of curiosity as well as to be able to play with an RTOS. Now I want to build a small demo project with it, but I am unable to think of practical ideas that would demonstrate the difference between 430 and 432. I understand the "datasheet" difference between the two MCUs, but I am unable to translate this to functionality level. I am interested to see references to existing hobby projects that were built with MSP432 and are not possible do achieve with MSP430. Thank you!

    Adafruit ILI9341 port for Energia

    This library was developed by Adafruit so the thanks should go to them. The following macros are not implemented in Energia: digitalPinToPort portOutputRegister digitalPinToBitMask As a temporary workaround, you can comment the line: #define USE_FAST_PINIO in Adafruit_ILI9341.h. Also, it would be better to use volatile uint32_t as replacement for RwReg (this is how it is typedefed for Arduino). I do not have msp432 to test, but I was able to compile using the three fixes (min/max, RwReg and USE_FAST_PINIO). If you manage to compile and run the example sketch, can you post the benchmark result?
  3. Adafruit ILI9341 is an Arduino library for ILI9341 TFT display. This is a cheap controller and display module that can be bought on ebay/aliexpress fror as low as 6$. Recently I experimented with porting this library to Energia. Not surprisingly, it was almost trivial since most of the low level stuff is abstracted by SPI library functions. The port itself: https://github.com/alkhimey/Adafruit_ILI9341/tree/msp430-support Wiring instructions: http://www.nihamkin.com/2016/04/30/connecting-msp430-with-ili9341-tft-display/ This might be a little redundant as I see now that there is a dedicated msp430 graphics library that supports this display, still I want to believe it has some value for the community.
