    Did you run through the manual serial-to-USB procedure in the Troubleshooting section of the Quick Start Guide? See if that's the issue. If not, try uninstalling those two com ports, and plug it back in for a fresh start. Look for the 3 requests to install firmware. If it does it automatically, then I'm not sure where to go from there. You can try to manually connect by using the Connection -> Connection Wizard from the GUI.

    I'm not sure if the latest CodeGen version is supported in linux, but in order for it to work with the new F2806x device, you'll need:
    - CCSv4.2 or later
    - CodeGen Tools v6.0 Beta (available from the Update Advisor, not sure if they've released it for linux)
    - Install ti_c2000_f2806x_flash_setup_4.2.0.1.exe (from the "extras" folder of the CCS install on the DVD) to your CCSv4 directory
    - Install ti_c2000support_setup_1.0.0.0.exe (same as above)

    No open source compiler.
    You can use the 38Kb limited edition CCS.

    I found these boards and thought that maybe is one those but I really can't tell. I made a search in TI's e-Shop and there is nothing similar to a Smart metering board. Kind of a mistery....
     
    Is something like Gift horse actually. The complete phrase is; A caballo regalado no se le miran los dientes. I found a very similar phrase in English; Don't look a gift horse in the mouth.

    Hi all,
     
    Browsing through DangerousPrototypes blog today, I saw Ian posted some info about TI's floating-point Piccolo MCUs. Texas Instruments has development boards with F28069 in memory stick form factor on promotion now ($11 if using the promo code Piccolo11 at checkout).
     
    It seems those Piccolo MCUs have far more capabilities than I'll ever use in my simplistic projects, but there are a lot of clever people in this forum who may find it useful
     
    You can see and order the dev board here:

    Here is where I got this tip from:

    Cheers,

    markey1979 got a reaction from gatesphere in 50% off from Ti e-store............   
    Ti sent me an email for 50% off a cc2591 evaluation module. The Promo code is LRG5-SA02RK. I thought I would throw that out there if anyone is interested. Its only $50us instead of $100. The cc2591 is a 2.4Ghz range extender that compliments their other CC wireless offerings.
     
    They said this offer was for today ( 01/27/2010) but, at the bottom it implies longer.

    markey1979 reacted to Lizard787 in NES Controller   
    The program reads an NES Controller. The Data pin is connected to P1.0, the latch pin is connected to P1.1 and the Clock Pin is connected to P1.2. I'm using the controller adapter from parallaxhttp://www.parallax.com/Store/Accessories/HumanInterfaceDevices/tabid/822/CategoryID/90/List/0/SortField/0/Level/a/ProductID/613/Default.aspx to hook up the controllers. After it is done reading the controller it jumps to the subroutine "Finished".
    The inputs are stored in Register 12 which goes:
    A B Select Start UP DOWN LEFT RIGHT
    1 is pressed, 0 is unpressed.

    #include "msp430.h" ; #define controlled include file NAME main ; module name PUBLIC main ; make the main label vissible ; outside this module ORG 0FFFEh DC16 init ; set reset vector to 'init' label RSEG CSTACK ; pre-declaration of segment RSEG CODE ; place program in 'CODE' segment init: MOV #SFE(CSTACK), SP ; set up stack ;42 If Button Press main: CLR.B &P1DIR ;41 If No Button Press BIS.B #7Fh, &P1DIR ; main program ADD.B #7Fh, &P1DIR CLR.B &P1OUT BIS.B #02h, &P1OUT ;Latch Up CLR R4 CLR R13 ;Button State CLR R12 ;All values stored CLR R5 ;Counter BIS.B &P1IN, R13 ;Gets data1 status ;02 is button pressed 03 is not BIS.B #03h, R4 ;Math to get button status SUB.B R13, R4 CLR.B &P1OUT CMP.B #01h, R4 ;Compare values JNE NextButton ADD.B #01h, R12 NextButton: ;67 althogether (A pressed) 15 or 16 INC.B R5 ;Counter CMP #08h, R5 ;Checks How many times loop has run JEQ Finished ;Insert To whereever you want to go after inputs read CLR R13 ;Reset CLR R4 RLA.B R12 ;Rotate for new value ADD.B #04h, &P1OUT ;Clock High BIS.B &P1IN, R13 ;Gets INput CLR.B &P1OUT;Clock Low CMP.B #04h, R13 JNE NextButton ADD.B #01h, R12 JMP NextButton END
    When I tested it I connected four LEDS on pins P1.4 to P1.7 and added the code. Since I only added four led's it only outputs either the multi directional button presses or the normal(A B Start Select) button. IF you try this code make sure you erase the END command on the first section of code i posted.

    Finished: CMP #10h, R12 JLO Displaay BIS.B R12, &P1OUT JMP main Displaay: RLA.B R12 RLA.B R12 RLA.B R12 RLA.B R12 BIS.B R12, &P1OUT JMP main END
    EDIT: Optimized the code(Removed 1 instruction). EDIT 2: Removed another instruction

    lol, the post was in 2008 and back then there were no linux drivers. i start w/ the ez430u early 2010 and had seem thru all the linux support gradually build up to what we have today.
     
    good luck w/ your projects. i hope the CNC host control is just a matter of comm port configurations.

    what about the 3410 w/ ubuntu, it is working reasonably well under 9600bps? is there anything u want to achieve thru it is not working? explain and may be there is already a solution. the linux driver is not ideal but works reliably.
     
    as for the emulator part of the launchpad, it is close to a ez430-rf2500 dongle (same usb id, same emulator interface), if u are interested in re-purposing it the best information can be found here.
