  1. Nice video. I'm thinking this is probably because the silicon die itself is very small, and the only reason the chip itself is that large is to allow for the through hole contacts. As long as you don't cut into (or otherwise destroy) the silicon, you should be able to do whatever you want to the chip.
  2. This item apparently will not ship to the united states, but the price is outrageously cheap. Does anyone have a cheap source for them that ships to the US? I would love to do this project over spring break.
  3. Hello everyone, I'm fairly new to the whole MCU thing, so I'm just trying to wet my feet with my own sample program. I'm using the launchpad and am working with the sample chip that came with it, although I don't think that will affect my problem too much. What I'm trying to do is create a pulse width modulation with the LED that varies in intensity for a given period. Now it turns out this isn't too difficult, and I've gotten it to work. But to familiarize myself with the inputs as well as outputs I would like to have the button on the launchpad control the period based on two button pre
  4. Hello everyone, I'm fairly new to this microcontroller business, however I am not new to analog and digital circuits. Hopefully with time I can get to know everyone around here, although because I am still going to school for computer engineering I don't have much free time for projects. I've tried to find some example codes to mess around with, and it seems like different compilers like different types of code, which is taking some time to get used to, but I'm still excited to learn more about how to program these things.
