Sharp Infrared Distance Sensor
Fmilburn posted a topic in General ElectronicsThis post covers my experiences with a Sharp IR sensor marked 2YOA2I F 7I I received courtesy of @@bluehash clearing his desk a while back. Sharp IR sensors can be obtained that cover ranges from 4 - 30 cm up to 100 - 550 cm. This one has a listed range of 10 - 80 cm. The coverage envelope / angle was not listed in the data sheet but seemed relatively narrow. Current consumption is around 30 mA on average. Response time is listed as 39 ms. The output from the sensor is an analog voltage which is inversely proportional to the distance in a nonlinear manner. Of particular note to th
SHARP Memory Display Booster Pack
chicken posted a topic in Booster PacksAs discussed in this thread, I took a first stab at a Booster Pack for the 1.35" SHARP Memory Display. As suggested by @@greeeg, I added two footprints: FPC connector (on the back) zebra strip connector (on the front) While the outline is for the 1.35" variants (LS013B4DN01, LS013B4DN02, LS013B4DN04). The 1.28" (LS013B7DH03) and 1.26" (LS013B7DH01) displays should work too as the FPC cables are of similar length and zebra footprints are identical. The smaller, circular displays might work, but the length of the FPC cable might be too short. The larger displays have the same FPC ca
MSP430F5529 fails to show output of SHARP IR sensor
earthbound posted a topic in Energia - MSPHi, I'm trying to read analog values from a SHARP IR sensor GP2Y0A41SK0F using the MSP430F5529 launchpad. There was not any error when I verified and uploaded the codes in Energia. However, when I clicked on the Serial Monitor, nothing showed up. But when I chose the MSP430G2452 from the "Tools" menu, the monitor successfully showed the analog values. I connect Vcc (red wire) to 5 V pin, the ground (black wire) to GND pin, and the analog output (white wire) to P6.4 pin/A4 pin. The same thing also happened to the MSP430G2553 launchpad. It only works when MSP430G2452 is selected.
Displaying .c Images Using Energia Sharp LCD BoosterPack LibraryI have a MSP430FR5969 launchpad with the Sharp 96x96 LCD boosterpack. The out of the box application had a splash screen. I am aware that using CCS with the library, I could display .c images using the MSP430 image reformer that is included with the graphics library but I'm not really good at coding in C. I came from the Arduino, so I'm more familiar with the energia. Is there any way to display these .c image files on energia?
SHARP Memory Display Breakout and ExampleAlways a sucker for displays of any form and shape I ordered one of the 1.35 inch SHARP LS013B4DN02 memory LCD when it made the rounds last year. At $20 apiece it's quite expensive for its size, but it's sooo pretty I finally finished up the code and published everything on Github. https://github.com/a...-memory-display According to the datasheet, this display runs on less than 15uW. I was not able to measure current with my lowly multimeter, so I'm pretty positive that the MSP430 plus display use way below 1mA. If the display looks familiar, that's because it was featured i
