  1. Hi Fmilburn, Thank you for your remark. I tested your suggested code on new MSP-EXP430G using Fluke 187 multimeter connected in series to the Vcc pins of J3 after the jumper was removed and I measured 0.27 ?A which is good. Is there anything else I can do, in your opinion, to lower current consumption to 0.1 ?A ? Here is your the code I used: /* This example was derived from a posting by fmilburn3 Demonstrates a way to utilize LaunchPad low power modes with the sleep(), sleepSeconds(), suspend() and wakeup() functions in Energia. The LaunchPad will blink the red LED 3 ti
  2. Hi Fmilburn, Thank you for your remark. I tried your example, in the tutorial you mentioned above, on a brand - new MSP-EXP430G Luanchpad with a Fluke 187 multimeter connected in series with the Vcc pins of J3 after the jumper was removed and the circuit consumed 0.22 ?A during suspend mode. which is nice. Is there anything to do in your opinion to lower current consumption to 0.1 ?A ?
  3. Hi NurseBob Thank you for your most educating remark. I was not aware of the family user guide. slau144j.pdf at all. I changed my target board HW accordingly (attached bellow). I tied the RST pin to Vcc via a 47K resistor and the devise is running. I defined the GPIOs as in the the code I previously posted to Greeeg above with current consumption of 0.29 ?A. Is there anything else I can do, in your opinion to lower current consumption to 0.1 ?A ? Thank you Low Power circuit.pdf
  4. Hi Greeeg, Thank you for your meticulousness and good comment. I changed the code accordingly and the current consumption during LPM4 is now ~ 0.29 ?A. Attached bellow is the amended code: void setup() { pinMode(P1_0,INPUT_PULLDOWN); pinMode(P1_1,INPUT_PULLDOWN); pinMode(P1_2,INPUT_PULLDOWN); //pinMode(P1_3,INPUT_PULLDOWN); This input will be set later pinMode(P1_4,INPUT_PULLDOWN); pinMode(P1_5,INPUT_PULLDOWN); pinMode(P1_6,INPUT_PULLUP); //LED pinMode(P1_7,INPUT_PULLUP); //LED pinMode(P2_0,INPUT_PULLDOWN); pinMode(P
  5. Hi, I would like to report the results of the tests I did following my last post where I managed to reach 25
  6. Hi guys, I would like to report that following your comments I tried to set: pinMode(P1_3,INPUT_PULLDOWN); instead of the previous pinMode(P1_3,INPUT_PULLUP); and consequently I had to change attachInterrupt(P1_3,Interrupt, RISING);instead of the the previous attachInterrupt(P1_3,Interrupt, FALLING);. I needed to change the switch wiring from GND to Vcc. The results are that power consumption went from 75
  7. Hi , This last problem is solved by connecting the RST pin on the target board to VCC. The high current consumption did not go away just yet...
  8. Hi , Sorry for the confusion I caused. Is there any way to cancel my post in one of the forums?
  9. Hi @Mention, Thank you for your input. I have tried with and without all those INPUT_PULLDOWN but with no significant change in current consumption. I already tried to insert the LPM4 in different places including at the end of setup() but to no avail.
  10. For some reason, probably because I am new my reply to you seem to appear in the wrong place. So I will try again to insert my reply where I think it is right. I also attached the diagram as PDF attachment, I could not figure out how to make it appear nicely on the page. Hi greeeg, Thank you for your input. Attached please find the circuit diagram I use. I have no external pull down resistors at all. All other parts on my PCB, like 4 LEDs and one buzzer are active only when the program is awake. When in LPM4 mode all LEDs outputs are set to HIGH and the Buzzer output is set to LOW , s
  11. Hi, Thank you, I did but to no avail, still same current consumption, But I realized that when I disconnect the TEST jumper from the Luanchpad the program stop running. Any Idea ?
  12. Hi greeeg, Thank you for your input. Attached please find the circuit diagram I use. I have no external pull down resistors at all. All other parts on my PCB, like 4 LEDs and one buzzer are active only when the program is awake. When in LPM4 mode all LEDs outputs are set to HIGH and the Buzzer output is set to LOW , so no current should flow through these guys. Regarding the RX, TX, RST and TEST pins , when I disconnect RX and TX there is no change in current consumption , still 75 430h2.pdf
  13. Hi @Mention, Thank you for your advise. It is a very enlightening article which I read with great interest. I studied the practices mentioned at the "Ultra-Low Power with MSP430" link and successfully used the codes they suggested. Although I used their codes, I did not use their measuring method but instead I used analog method, namely, connected a micro Amper meter in series with the VCC line. I used different high quality ?A meters, they all show similar results. The code is working, the current goes from 5mA when in awake mode to 75 ?A when in LPM4 mode. I failed to understand what
  14. Hi, I am new to this form yet I have a question regarding MSP430G2553 low power mode (LPM4). My setup includes an MSP-EXP430G2 Launchpad with MSP430g2553 controller assembled on an external self made PCB with RX, TX, TEST, RST, VCC connected to the Luanchpad through a FLUKE 187 (high quality meter ) micro Amper meter and GND pins. I tried the recommended sketch, attached bellow, I found on another forum to test the LPM4 mode, including the "for(uint8_t i;i<20;i++) pinMode(i, INPUT_PULLDOWN)" routine followed by pinMode(P1_3,INPUT_PULLUP); and pinMode(P1_0,OUTPUT); It seem to work b
