  1. I am preparing to purchase equipment for a student lab and am heading towards the SimpleLink MSP432 Launchpad (to have wiFi integrated and avoid a wifi boosterpack). To make the lab interesting the EDU Booster pack looks good (switches, joystick, light/temperature, LCD, servo motor controller) but this course traditionally also makes use of stepper motors and keypad, so that leads me to to think that I want to buy the Launchpad plus 3 boosterpacks: EDU + stepper + keypad. Can I use 3 boosterpacks on a single launchpad (all at one time)? Thanks.

  3. Hi everyone, I am new here so please forgive if I am posting this in the wrong place. I am trying to develop a simple game (snake or tic tac toe) using the boosterpack mkii and MSP430FR6989 but I am having terrible hard time even getting started with the project. I would also like to know which libraries to download and etc. There are a lot of tutorials for boosterpack mkii but none of them use the FR6989 board. If someone could get me started and guide me the right way it would be really appreciated.
  4. Hi, I am looking to interface CC3200 Launchpad with Kentec K350QVG 3.5" LCD Booster pack using Energia. I can't find any library suits for CC3200. Does anyone interfaced this display with CC3200? If so, can any one guide me? Thanks
  5. Now here's a set of fancy booster packs! It's a fully integrated automotive radar. http://www.ti.com/lsds/ti/sensing-products/mmwave-sensors/awr/awr-tools-software.page#tools Those rectangles on the right with wiggly traces to the IC are the radar antenna. RF magic! The "CAUTION HOT SURFACE" warning label also promises excitement. Too bad they will cost $299 according to the press release. Posting in the ARM sub-forum as the radar IC features an R4F ARM core. Though the booster packs probably work with beefier MSP430 LaunchPads too. Edit: Here's the mmWave landing page. The AWR also has the non-automotive sibling IWR, including similar booster packs. http://www.ti.com/lsds/ti/sensing-products/mmwave-sensors/mmwave-overview.page
  6. TI has updated the Battery BoosterPack, price is $24.99 USD from TI: 3.7V 12000mAh lithium polymer battery On- board lithium polymer charger On- board gas gauge USB charging with indicator LED Battery status outputs
  7. Does anyone have the test firmware for the original Educational BoosterPack as shown on the YouTube video: It would be very helpful to me to see the code for this testing script. Thank you for any help with this.
  8. This library allows you to quickly and easily connect your LaunchPad project to Exosite's Data Platform in the cloud. It connects your project using a MSP430F5529 LaunchPad and CC3000 BoosterPack. Two software packages are available: the Exosite barebones-template solution and a real-world example in the form of the Exosite BBQ Companion Combination. Both of these use-cases have code available for the Energia and Code Composer Studio IDEs. Present Support: MSP430F5529 LaunchPad Future Support: Tiva C Series TM4C123G LaunchPad Required: CC3000 Wi-Fi Transceiver BoosterPack Optional: ADS1118 BoosterPack (bonus Energia beta-library available) GitHub Repository: https://github.com/a-whitehead/exositeLaunchPad Note: A free account on Exosite Portals is required: https://ti.exosite.com
  9. Buy: The 43oh Store or Rob's Tindie Store. The newest version of the Ethernet BoosterPack is based on the newest chip from WIZnet, W5500. P1.5 - SCLK P1.6 - MISO P1.7 - MOSI P2.3 - /CS P2.4 - /INT P2.5 - /RST Configuration jumpers are on the bottom, PMODE1-PMODE3, LINK LED, and ACT LED. LED jumpers control which LEDs are used, on board or socket. Available on Tindie.
  10. I am wanting to buy an original Educational BoosterPack. Please contact me if you have one or know of one for sale. Thank you. mekkatronix@yahoo.com
  11. I have few questions for users of LCD BoosterPacks.
  12. New LCD BoosterPacks are here. Both are 2.4" 320x240, one with touch panel, one without. Both feature the same pinout as their "little" 2.2" brother, same configuration options and SD socket. Can be used with my graphics library without any changes! Available on Tindie 2.4 LCD BP v3.pdf 2.4 LCD BP v2.pdf
  13. I just got the msp430G2 launchpad with the MSP430G2553 mcu. For stepper motor driver im using the boost-drv8711 boosterpack. I was able to get it running with the tutorial that it came with. However i cant run it with Energia. It might be because of the enable bit (0x0) but i dont know how to set it 1 on energia. Do any of you have any experiance of this setup ? The motor im running is bipolar sanyo denki 103h5208-5240. My code so far is like this (i used the arduino example, board pin layouts in attachment): #include <Stepper.h> const int stepsPerRevolution = 200; // change this to fit the number of steps per revolution // for your motor // These are the pins for the driver STEP/AIN1 , DIR/AIN2, BIN1,BIN2 Stepper myStepper(stepsPerRevolution, 9, 10, 12, 13); void setup() { pinMode(9, OUTPUT); // same as above pinMode(10, OUTPUT); pinMode(12, OUTPUT); pinMode(13, OUTPUT); pinMode(6, OUTPUT); // pin for the nSleep which wakes up the board digitalWrite(6, HIGH); // set the speed at 60 rpm: myStepper.setSpeed(60); // initialize the serial port: Serial.begin(9600); } void loop() { // step one revolution in one direction: Serial.println("clockwise"); myStepper.step(stepsPerRevolution); delay(100); // step one revolution in the other direction: Serial.println("counterclockwise"); myStepper.step(-stepsPerRevolution); delay(100); }
  14. I'm using CC110L Boosterpack with TIva C. I tried example codes provided in Energia. I want to use this boosterpack for my project. And I'm using Keil for programming. So any one can provide CC110L and SPI libraries for Keil???????
  15. It seems that Farnell (Element 14) and TI have been working on a LiPo BoosterPack. eStore Press release
  16. Hi 43oh! It seemed like there was some interest in my solid state relay board, so I figured I'd post up the design files. Because of liability reasons (being high voltage and what not) I can't produce this, but your welcome to get some boards made and solder them yourself. Be warned, soldering the heat-sinks to the board is VERY DIFFICULT! You'll need a board pre-heater, hot air, and some good flux. Schematic: triac_board.pdf Design package (in EAGLE 6.5): triac_board.zip Cheers!

    EduKit BoosterPack

    After couple of years and many ideas, I have finally settled on a design for my experimenter's board. Say hello to EduKit BoosterPack. The EduKit BP comes with 1.8" color LCD and 8 accessory connectors. Each connector provides access to power and 2 or 4 MCU pins and are used to connect accessory boards. Those boards will allow user to perform tests and experiments, and could be used to teach about MCU's. There are also 4 jumpers on the board, which are used to change LCD's connections. LCD can use SPI1 (UCA0) or SPI2 (UCB0,) CS and D/C have also 2 possible connection options. Accessory boards can be simple, for example switch, LED, or potentiometer, or can be more complex, like shift register, mic with amp, sensors, MIDI, GPS. The EduKit is meant to be used with MSP430G2 LaunchPad (though it could be used with any other LP,) and will come with a library that will allow easy setup and use of LCD. User can write his code and then display results using one of the included functions (text, bar graph, etc.)
  18. I am confused about the compatibility of BoosterPacks. According to the TM4C123 pub spmu296.pdf: * The TM4C123 is compatible with the "TIVA C Series LaunchPad BoosterPack XL" * The outer column of pins are also compatible with MSP430 "LaunchPad-Compatible BoosterPacks" In the TM4C129 pub spmu365a.pdf it describes the first and second BoosterPack XL. "‘A’ and ‘D’ make up the outer BoosterPack standard pins, ‘B’ and ‘C’ make up the inner BoosterPack XL standard pins." On examining the pinouts between the 123 and 1294 for these 2x10 pins, none of the pin functions match. How do I identify which boards a BoosterPack will be compatible with? Some BP descriptions say " for the MSP430." Most do not mention compatibility.
  19. Interesting: The MSP430FR4133 reference designs for a thermostat and a water meter come with BoosterPack headers. However the pin-out seems to be only partial. At least it's sufficient to use SPI/I2C. More here: http://e2e.ti.com/blogs_/b/msp430blog/archive/2014/10/16/new-reference-designs-available-based-on-the-new-msp430fr4133-mcu.aspx
  20. Here are two BoosterPacks from 4D Systems, 96 x 64 pixels OLED and 128 x 128 pixels TFT. They both contain powerful GOLDELOX graphics processor, 5 switches, and a microSD socket. GOLDELOX and LaunchPad communicate using async serial interface. The memory card can be used to store images, icons, video clips and data. Work on the library is in progress.
  21. Hi Everyone! Recently, I released a Bluetooth Low Energy BoosterPack based on the BLE112 module from Bluegiga. The full-featured BoosterPack is a bit expensive, but there are a few different options that can make the BoosterPack very reasonable. I wanted to create this post so that you guys can ask me any questions you may have about it. Blank PCB: $10 - The BLE BoosterPack was designed with 0805 components and other easy to solder parts making it easy to hand assemble. For $10, you get a blank BoosterPack that can you assemble yourself. The layout and bill of materials (BOM) is available on GitHub. If you need help with finding a component on Mouser or Digikey, let me know. BLE Only: $40 - This options contains all you need to use the BLE112 module with a LaunchPad. Additionally, the USB connector is included, allowing stand-alone use with your PC and USB firmware updates. This means that you don't need the CC Debugger to update the BLE112 firmware. Complete with Linear Regulator: $50 - Rather than using a switching regular, this option uses a linear regulator to reduce cost. Other than using a different regulator, this is the full-featured BoosterPack. Complete with Switching Regulator: $65 - If you care about maximizing your battery life, this is the board for you. Using the TI recommended switching regulator, this board can has unbeatable power consumption. Check out the demo video for a bit more info. While the full-featured board is a bit pricey, it does include all you need to make your project completely wireless: A BLE module, a lithium battery charging circuit, and low-power voltage regulator. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to comment here. Thanks guys!

    Remote Control RedBot

    Using my RedBot BoosterPack I have created a small remote control robot. The motors + chassis costs $15 from SparkFun so it's a pretty low cost solution to get started in robotics. On the controller side I use the CC1101L for wireless communication and the Educational BoosterPack MKII for the joystick. The F5529 LaunchPad simply reads the joystick value and decides which way the robot should move and transmits the data using the CC1101L. Here is a picture of the controller, note the CC1101L is on the bottom of the LaunchPad to make the joystick easy to use. On the robot side the F5529 LaunchPad is connected to the CC1101L BoosterPack to receive the data from the joystick. It then uses the RedBot BoosterPack to control the robot. The GitHub repository is located here, which includes hardware + software. The remote control code isn't uploaded yet but will be once I clean it up. And now a video of it in action (phone quality).

    RedBot BoosterPack

    I have finished my first revision of the RedBot BoosterPack. For those that don't know SparkFun has a robotics kit they call the "RedBot". Which is basically an Arduino, robot chassis and a bunch of sensors. This BoosterPack basically replaces the Arduino and allows you to plug in your favorite 40-pin LaunchPad to interact with the hardware. Check out my GitHub link below for more information on the differences. SparkFun sells the robot chassis and motors for $15 on its website, using it with this BoosterPack and a LaunchPad is a low cost way to get into robotics. I have started to port the Arduino library to Energia and currently have support for the motors. The GitHub project below has a lot more info and the current project status. GitHub: https://github.com/zlalanne/redbot-boosterpack The BoosterPack by itself: The BoosterPack + F5529 LaunchPad mounted to the robot chassis. The chassis from SparkFun includes all screws + standoffs to mount correctly Sideview of the BoosterPack + F5529 LaunchPad mounted to the robot chassis
