  1. Hi all, I've just installed Energia and am trying to upload blinky to an G2553 Launchpad: Using new (SLAC460L+) API MSP430_GetNumberOfUsbIfs MSP430_GetNameOfUsbIf Found FET: COM11 MSP430_Initialize: COM11 tilib: MSP430_VCC: Could not set device Vcc (error = 10) Firmware version is 31000003 MSP430_VCC: 3000 mV tilib: device initialization failed the selected serial port tilib: device initialization failed does not exist or your board is not connected Any ideas about what I might be doing wrong? thank you.
  2. Hi Bob, Again, thank you very much for your input. Hmm...I'll probably do a little of each step you've outlined. And I'll keep the mantra of "If it was easy anyone could do it" in mind. all, again, thank you for your help! Scott
  3. All, Thanks for raining on my parade Seriously, though, thank you for your input. One thing I should've mentioned is this is for pedagogical purposes, not for development. For example, it might make a good demo for MOOC to show students a level up from the "real" code, but not requiring a lot of skill with using libraries, include paths, linking, etc. Probably the easiest thing for me to do is get to know the Energia library better. Other than that, maybe you can help me figure out an easier way to debug.The Energia code is very robust, easy to use, yes, but it can take some ti
  4. Hi all, I started writing a few "hybrid" code examples based on Energia projects. They're called hybrid because they're based on Energia examples but are written more of a compact form, using few header files. For example, they do not try to hide the main() routine like Arduino/Energia (this is great for beginners/prototypers, but not for understanding the microprocessor). Energia and CCS examples are somewhat complementary: Energia is easy to use/hard to follow, TI code is hard to use/easy to follow. Hi-level vs. low-level. So I wanted something in between. Hence, hybrid. They a
  5. Thanks, good info. I didn't know that about the updates.
  6. Hi all, I just wanted to add a couple comments as a newbie. 1. Is there a "netiquette" for indicating that an issue is resolved? 2. I came to 430h because (as I recall) I was referred here by e2e. So now it's forever ingrained in my head that "oh, 430h is the Enegia form". But then I read in a post that users are worried that 430h is just going to be seen as an Energia. So I'm glad that's it's more than just for Energia. It also seems to be a bit more soft around the edges/friendlier than e2e. 3. For pedagogical purposes, I would like to use Energia projects in CCS. The p
  7. Let me know if you have a problem with the above steps.
  8. I solved the problem by following these steps exactly: copy <energia directory>\hardware\tools\DSLite\DebugServer\drivers\MSP430.dll to <energia directory>\hardware\tools\msp430\bin\ edit <energia directory>\hardware\energia\msp430\boards.txt an change the 2 occurrences of rf2500 with tilib restart energia and you should be able to upload to the MSP-EXP430G2 with MSP430G2553. Apparently this is a known issue but there's some question about whether it's resolved using latest versions of the tool. The issue is also posted on github: https://github.com
  9. Hi, I had the exact same problem. I fixed it by editing a file according to: github.com/.../Common-error-messagese2e.ti.com/.../539487 This is posted on the TI forum here: https://e2e.ti.com/support/microcontrollers/msp430/f/166/t/580238?tisearch=e2e-sitesearch&keymatch=energia usbutil%3A unable to find a device matching 0451%3Af432 Or you can search the TI forum using: "energia usbutil: unable to find a device matching 0451:f432"
  10. Thank you both for the info! I don't see a "this solved my problem" check box so I'll just say thank you.
  11. Hi all, I'm new to Energia but have been using CCS for about five years. Is there a way to run Energia code in CCS? Is the best way to copy all the source files into CCS? thank you!
  12. Hi all, Where can I find source code for the Energia libraries? In particular, I'm looking for the source code for digitalWrite() and digitalRead(). thank you.
  13. I'm having the same issue: usbutil: unable to find a device matching 0451:f432 Has anyone found a solution?
