  1. Oh God, I've got 2 in the mail. I really hope I didn't get more 1.4's ... should be here today. Jim
  2. While it might in theory effect the operation, one of my LP's have the 32K crystal installed, and well I failed to look at the pin out for the booster, but communication isn't actually effected by it when using the demo application right out of the box without any modifications to the booster pack. And yes my crystal was soldered correctly as I did the LP Workshop and used their test code to make sure that I soldered it as intended. Jim
  3. I ordered all 3 kits, and it seems that the Sensor one is coming in first. So I was wondering if anyone had any advice on companies that produce compatible sensors for it that are decent? Jim
  4. Thanks oPossum forgot about adding pictures. :shh: Jim

  6. Yes they are shipping out of Texas both versions at will. As someone who has done shipping/receiving I know exactly what happened. They have space for 2 boxes out in front of the shelf, and it just depends which one the guy happens to grab till the ones in the back filled with the newer 1.5's end up being the only ones left. Thing is Harte Hanks is the one actually shipping the LP's I think so they probably do not even know that the changes have been made as they are a shipping/direct marketing company not TI itself. Atleast other then manufacturing date, there is no actual reference t
  7. Well I still have $20 on my Paypal account. Gave one of the 2 1.4 boards away today. Ordered 2 more, if I don't get v1.5's I'll wait a few weeks before using up the other half of my paypal balance. Jim
  8. So you think if I reordered the LP I might get lucky? Mind you my order was done on the 12th. So I still think it might be hit or miss. :shock: Jim
  9. I personally will just be going ahead starting this weekend and using the CC1100 software that TI released and seeing how it may or may not need modification to work with the CC110L. Anaren is just the middle man, with a "module" but TI is still the source. Jim
  10. You should spread the love and give them away to friends. That is what I did with my newly obtained 1.4 boards. My feeling is this, the more the msp430 community grows the more opportunities we have to grow with it. Just my 2 cents. Ignore as appropriate. -rick I just got 2 new LaunchPads both version 1.4 as well. I've already given away one LP, will give these away to a new home as well. At $4.30, and for TI to send them to me by next day FedEx to Canada, I know its a relatively big loss leader and wouldn't feel right getting them to waste even more money about it since technical
  11. Mine in the mail now, hopefully they are the new revision. :eh: Jim
  12. Generally (or atleast me and a few others) tend to keep our boards right side up, not upside down in storage. With a Arduino for example, you end up having to keep the "shields" in a upside down direction to keep them on the female headers instead of the male ones. If the male headers are being used to support the shield/booster you tend to have a tenancy that the legs will bend due to loading on the board (accidentally of course). However since female pins are one solid plastic unit, there is less of a tenancy to break or bend pins as you'd have to tear out the plastic from the soldered p
  13. I am a fan of male headers on the platform. And female to male cables can be had from Sparkfun etc. Male headers on the bottom of any PCB is lousy idea in my opinion. Too much risk for damage cause of it, where as female headers on the bottom of a PCB will generally act as legs and not bend, twist, or conduct onto the board. So far both digital Pot EVM's (such as the TPL0501EVM) come with female headers, as well as the CC110L modules. Even if TI is slow to set a standard, at least they are setting one that makes more sense then having a .160" gap between headers so regular prototyping
  14. In case anyone is wondering. I hope this isn't greedy but only looking for 80$ plus shipping. Cause TI doesn't charge shipping or taxes so all I would need is 80$ for a eZ430-Chronos 915 Mhz watch, Capacitive Booster Pack, and a TPL0501 booster. Jim

  16. Hello, I am new to the MSP430, but I purchased a boosterpack set so I can experiment with them during my Christmas break as wireless development interests me. It is running off the SPI connection between the MSP430 and itself which is nice. I'll probably attempt to write my own SPI <-> CC110L library over the next few months. Wish me luck! Jim
