Hey, I am a rising high school senior who has been messing around and tinkering with electronics for as long as I can remember, soldered some kits starting in 3rd grade, first got introduced to programming with an Arduino about 2 years ago, Linux with a Raspberry Pi 1.5 years ago ( and then started tinkering with computers from my school's e-waste and installing Linux on everything, experimenting with running servers and SysAdmin stuff ), and now digging deeper into microcontrollers without the Arduino or Energia IDEs and their abstraction. Just finished my first robot ( a basic light seeker ) using a msp430g2452, programmed in C and compiled with mspgcc on linux, will probably share it soon! actually here is the code repository for it if interested (I expect it could use improvement would love any feedback): https://github.com/emdarcher/msp430_tank_robot the mspsci blog ( http://mspsci.blogspot.com/ ) has been extremely useful to me learning to use the on-chip peripherals and understand the datasheet and user guide. You can check out my blog here: http://emdinventor-blog.tk/ My school's FIRST robotics team: http://team4159.org/ I really like the msp430 microcontrollers ( just wish they had 5V tolerance like my little AVRs ) and am interested in taking better advantage of their low power cababilities. Also, I really want to go to BYU for college (and major in electrical engineering) and I recently found that their CS 124 ( http://students.cs.byu.edu/~cs124ta/ ) uses the msp430! So I am already learning stuff that could be useful in college, yay! (but they use CCS not mspgcc, so might have to adjust)
Hi all, just introducing myself! I was introduced to the msp340 in a computer programming class I am currently finishing up and I can say it has been eye opening. We have gone from the hardware level to assembly programing to higher level C programming. Coming from the arduino its cool to learn just what happens behind the scenes of the compiler/ programmer and realize just how inefficient some programs can be though they look basic in the higher level languages. Anyway, thats my rant, I'm looking forward to posting a recent project of mine here soon. Until then, have a wonderful day!
