  1. Thank you for the response! I understand the basic concept of it but I guess I will just have to see how it works by trial and error then.
  2. Yes I do plan to have a "dead zone" around the off position. How would I set that in the ADC? Also how would I figure out what my control value is? Would I have to hook up the pot i am using and write a program to print the values in the serial monitor? Or what is the best way to do this. Again I have taken a few courses on the basics of programming the MSP430 line but this is my first attempt at actually doing a project on my own with no instructions. I really want to learn how to do this and I have already spent countless hours reading and taking classes and now my next step is t
  3. Hello I am going to say that I am very new to Embedded systems. I could have started with the arduino as everyone else seems to do but I wanted to really understand how MCUs work so I opted for TIs MSP430 Line. I have read a lot of the documentation for the FR2311 and just have some general questions about how to go about using it most efficiently. First what my end goals are, I want to be able to control two DC motors that are bidirectional with speed control through a pot for each motor. They will be controlled via a L293DIC. I also want two push buttons that turn on or off
  4. Has anyone heard about Energia supporting the newest G2 MSP board? I ordered it and tried it with the existing board profile and it didn't work. I was really trying to get the rev. 1.5 board because I am tired of switching the jumpers every time i want to use the serial monitor.
  5. I ended up just getting some of the 2553 ICs ang now I don't have that problem anymore. I also updated the drivers for the board it self so that might have done the trick. Thanks for your response!
  6. I cannot get this led to dim. It will flash on and off but no PWM as far as I can see. I copied the code right from the website here. http://energia.nu/Tutorial_Fading.html and wired everything the way it should be. Using a 220Ohm resistor instead of the 10k they had in there BOM. What am I doing wrong? I am using the MSP430G2231 chip and have all my settings in energia set accordingly I really don't know what I am doing wrong or if I have a faulty chip? Looking for someone to point me in the right direction.
