  1. Hi All, Many thanks for your earlier help! I would like to use a larger PNLC display, such as the 400x240 (LC027B7DH01). Does anyone know if I can use the BOOSTXL-SHARP128 module to drive this larger display? If so, what changes do I need to make to the library? Thanks in advance.
  2. Thanks. I think I have it working now. Will share on this forum as soon as I have run some tests. Cheers!
  3. Hi all, I have recently acquired a color click board (https://www.digikey.co.uk/en/product-highlight/m/mikroelektronika/color-click-board) and would like to get it working with one of my MSP430 Launchpads. A sketch already exists for the Arduino (https://github.com/raivisr/TCS3471-Arduino-Library/blob/master/TCS3471/examples/ColorSensor/ColorSensor.pde) I have tried porting it over to MSP430, but have been unsuccessful. Do you have any suggestions as to where I may be going wrong? Problems are with undefined references. Thanks!
  4. I also have the same problem. Using MSP-EXP430G2553 & HC-05. I too can send data from my mobile, but can't receive anything. Using Energia (same code as kellyshen)
  5. I've commented out all of the display stuff and disconnected the BOOSTXL-SHARP128. I'm not sure why it was drawing so much current with the BOOSTXL and myScreen functions?
  6. Thanks for your reply. Regarding burden voltage, I have tried switching to mA range and read 0.14 mA, so I don't think that's the problem. I read the same current (140 uA or 0.14 mA, depending on DMM range) when the BOOSTXL-SHARP128 is not physically connected to the Launchpad. The current goes down to sub-uA when I comment out all of the myScreen functions.
  7. Hi, I’m trying to get my MSP-EXP430FR5969 (or preferably MSP-EXP430F5529) to work with BOOSTXL-SHARP128 at a few uA when it is not selected or being written to, i.e. when it’s idle. My MSP430s consume only a fraction of a uA in lowest power mode, but as soon as I add myScreen.begin() to setup(), it all goes crazy. In my sketch (below), I have set all ports as outputs to ensure there are no floating inputs. This reduces current consumption from several hundred uA to ~160 uA. I then connected my BOOSTXL-SHARP128 to my MSP-EXP430FR5969 via jumper wires to LCD_DISP, LCD_CD, SPI_CLK, SPI_
  8. Hi, I've tried this also, but I get the following error message:
  9. Hi All, I've been trying to get my BOOSTXL-SHARP128 to work. I've done loads of searches, but I can't find a solution. Does anyone know how to get the module to display a simple "Hello!" type message using Energia? Please see my code - below. It just seems to display lots of lines and dots. Any ideas what I'm doing wrong? Any help would be much appreciated.
