  1. This is a prototype of a magnetic sensor BoosterPack for the TI MSP430 Launchpad. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=whgsB5hb-Pk The board has 3 Hall-effect magnetic sensors that sense a magnetic filed in the z-axis to the sensor. The BoosterPack has a latched output sensor (on/off by changing magnetic field direction), unlatched output sensor (on/off by changing magnitude of magnetic field), and analog output sensor (output follows strength of magnetic field). The sensor outputs are connected to analog input pins of the MSP430 LaunchPad. 10 LEDs are connected to digital output pins of the MSP430 LaunchPad to indicate the output of each of the sensors, and 1 LED indicates when power is connected to the board. The demo programming was quickly and easily written by a novice programmer using the Energia software. We see applications for this BoosterPack as an educational demo on magnetism and programming, a toy for young hobbyists and inventors, and as another building block in the MSP430 LaunchPad ecosystem. Any and all stimulating comments would be much appreciated! Thanks.
  2. Hi all! The current project I'm working on with Stellaris is a stepper (step, direction) driver. I have these TB-6560 drivers that I got on eBay for cheap (here), and I've successfully driven the motors using the 32 bit timer. I've been able to set the frequency using a variable, etc, and hoping to implement acceleration, etc. The goal is to eventually write an entire gCode interpreter and be able to drive the CNC via a serial connection that dumps gCode to the Stellaris. I'm running in to a weird problem though. I'm attempting to add a control panel I got form Deal Extreme that connects via software SPI. I've been able to successfully interact with it using a library developed by Dan Oprescu. Works great in its own CCS project. I can read buttons, update the 7-seg displays, light LEDs, and everything works great. I've moved his library into my stepper project, and all hell breaks lose. As soon as I include the TH1638.h header in my stepper project I get hundreds of build errors. The really weird part is they don't seem to be coming from any of my code files. They are all coming from compiler includes in iosfwd and exception. I looked around on the web and I found something about including pre-compiled headers being a problem, but I'm a bit lost in this. I compared all the CCS project settings between the TM1638 project example, and my stepper project, and nothing seems out of place. I'm sure I'm missing something, but I have no clue how to debug this. If anyone has any ideas that would be greatly appreciated. I've attached my code so far if anyone has a few minutes to look it over! I'll keep posting here as I progress through the project as well! Suggestions and pointers welcome! EDIT (10-15-2012) Here's (attached) the latest updates to my code with the solutions listed below, if anyone is interested. I'll probably copy it over to github and then post it under the code section before too long here. I want to get it a little further before I do that. I'm sure I'm doing some things wrong here and I may have to change approaches, but this is what I've got so far! EDIT 2 (10-15-2012) Here is a link to the project git repo. Feel free to clone and code! https://github.com/VirtualEnder/Stepper Stepper.zip
  3. 27 years old finnish hardware engineer guy says hello! I just recently registered in to this forum, but i have been lurking around for a while now. This forum has been a great help to me and there have been some very interesting projects out there, I'm hoping to see more of them. Regardless that my job title is hardware engineer, I've done some programming too, mostly in C. C++ and C# are familiar languages for me too. Umm.. not sure what to say, isn't this enough ? Feel free to ask if you have questions! (No, there's no polar-bears in here, only regular ones and a beer which is named as 'bear' = Karhu in finnish - which i like Oh, if there's any finnish readers out there and you are interested in MSP430 programming, check out my webpage which has finnish tutorials about Launchpad (url at the end). Of course other nationalities are welcome too, but since it's written in finnish you propably won'd understand it... But hey, I got some youtube videos also! Comments are welcome. That's it. Be nice or else santa won't bring you any new gadgets to play with. BR. Mika 'CsCrazy' V
  4. Hey all, I'm relatively new to all this and I have been trying to get a temperature sensor to work with the launchpad. As in my previous posts I was trying for the DS18b20. I have the port of the code project on the back burner because there is a hell of a lot I need to learn to be able to port that over. So just to get something off the ground I have been trying to use the LM35 to read some temps. Here is the code I'm running float tempC; float tempF; void setup() { Serial.begin(9600); } void loop() { tempC = analogRead(6); //read the value from the sensor hooked up to pin 6 tempC = (3.3 * tempC * 100.0)/1024.0; //convert the analog data to temperature (Assuming 10bit ADC and 3.3v ref voltage I suspect this is where I'm screwing up) tempF = ((9.0*tempC)/5.0)+32.0; Serial.println(tempC); Serial.println(""); Serial.println(tempF); Serial.println(""); delay(1000); } The issue is that It is showing very high values. Like the order of 178 c? I also tried chaning the tempC calculation to tempC = (tempC*100.0)/1024.0 It gets closer but still not quite. (I'm monitoring through the serial monitor and I have not made any changes to the jumper position to my 1.4 board) Any and all help is appreciated. Regards, Alex
  5. Hi there! I'm totally new in MCU programming) I have the g2553 microcontroller and I need some program to make two PWMs and to control shift of impulse fronts one from other by clicking buttons. Try to explain: ___---___---___---___ ___---___---___---___ <click!> ____---___---___---__ ___---___---___---___ I think shift by adding __delay_cycles() to one of pwms is not too bad idea, but i totally have no thoughts how to get two PWMs. Sorry about my english:)
  6. Looking to trade a Stellaris LaunchPad for, well... A Stellaris Launchpad. I'd like to participate in the upcoming halloween contest, but i don't have a launchpad quite yet. I was hoping that if someone has a extra stellaris launchpad, that they would be willing to send it to me, and once i finally received my order i'll send back a new one, postage paid. Closed. Received my launchpads from TI.
