Since I am working on the Robotics Boosterpack with @@HylianSavior and @@jwp071, I decided to make a prototype with the box LaunchPad comes with. I've used Firmata to send command to LaunchPad. Check out my other post here. A quick overview of what's inside. Hardware - G2 LaunchPad Box - MSP430F5529LP - Fuel Tank Boosterpack - DRV8833 Motor Drive Control - HC-06 Bluetooth - Pololu Gear Motor - Caps, wires, breadboard Software - Firmata over serial (enabled by Bluetooth) - Energia Library on LP - NodeJS on PC
Programming a microcontroller for the first time can be a daunting task. What if you can remotely control your microcontroller by simply clicking few buttons on a PC GUI? With Energia support, I was able to port existing Firmata code used for Arduino onto LaunchPads. Firmata is a serial communication protocol that allows a host (PC) sending commands to the microcontrollers (MSP430). You can use it to toggle pins and LEDs, or read digital and analog inputs without writing any C code. This makes it super easy to test out your new sensor or debug your circuit. Bluetooth simply creates a
IR Remote Control Demo Project for the Stellaris LaunchPad Evaluation Board A demo to read Sony IR remote control commands using TIMER1A and PORTA PA2 Requires an IR Receiver device( TSOP1738 or similar ) connected to PA2 and a TV remote control. What you will need: First you will need a reciever/detector device like the TSOP1738 from vishay. That particular device is tuned for a 38khz carrier (most common) but if you happen to have a 36khz or 40khz device it will probablay work too. The one I used worked fine at 3.6v and can be powered right off the board. It's a 3 pin device, GND, VCC an
