  1. If you are new to the MSP430 then you're probably drowning in information right now. It's true that there are a zillion configurations to make before the 430 will do what you want it do do. So I'm betting that you are asking yourself "Where do I start?" I humbly suggest the following TI application notes and books that will get you going in the right direction: 1. slaa294: MSP430 Software Coding Techniques This application report covers software techniques and topics of interest to all MSP430 programmers. The first part of the document discusses the MSP430 standard
  2. Hello I joined this forum so I can receive guidance as I advance in knowledge in mcu and circuit design! I am currently studying for a computer engineering degree but I can't wait to start having all the fun! My friend recommended me on the msp430. My first project (besides a blinking led) is to play a classical piece on an electric buzzer! I know a microcontroller really isn't made to hold all those variables but I managed to get the first 100 notes in!! I am very pleased with it but when I take the ic out onto the breadboard I'm starting to have issues -_-'. My ultimate goal is to make a fun
  3. This is the first PCB that I have designed and sent off to be manufactured. Yesterday I received the boards, soldered them up, and they work! This write-up outlines the process I used in the hope that it will be useful to other hobbyists and builders. There are links at the end which provide additional detail. Selecting a Project The project consists of a small board with a MSP430G2553 microcontroller and an nRF24L01 radio. I started with a radio attached with jumpers to a LaunchPad quite some time back and then built one on a proto-board. The photograph below shows a G2553 with r
  4. Hey all, I've been staring at this for a while and for the life of me I can't figure it out. I've been trying to adapt the library here: http://jan.rychter.com/enblog/msp430-i2c-usi-library-released for the F2003, which should be rather straightforward, as most of the register names and functions are similar. However, I'm able to get it to build and compile, but when the code gets around to the first send command, it goes into low power mode and never actually sends it. The pins are set, the LPM0 bits are correct, the interrupt vector name is correct, and a number of other things seem to go a
  5. Hello! I was wondering if anyone would be able to help me with starting off with the Msp430 Launchpad, as I just got it less than an hour ago and i uploaded "blink" onto it using Energia. I was wondering if anyone could provide a link/give me a course on programming with Energia, but please bear in mind that i am only 14 . And how do the "pins" in a sketch copied from Arduino correspond to those on the Launchpad? Would Pin0 on Arduino be Pin1.0 on Launchpad? you can contact me at eshanwells@gmail.com hope to hear from you (43oh community) soon! Short

    43oh vs E2E

    Quick newbie question: Is there a difference in what I should post to E2E vs the 43oh forums? They seem to fill the same niche. I got the vague impression E2E was for more serious engineers, so I've been posting my newbie question here, but I really have no idea. Thanks!
  7. Beginner's question here: The Stellaris Launchpad has "stackable headers". What does that mean? Does it mean I can use more than one Booster Pack on the same Launchpad? I would think that each pin could only act as one input/output, so what would be the purpose of "stacking"?
  8. It's been years since I've done programming. I've played around with .NET dialects of VB and and was toying with Java a while back, but my most thorough programming experiences have been with Pascal, Applesoft Basic and TI Extended Basic on the TI-99/4A. So now that I've firmly dated myself as a product of the 1980's.... It seems a prerequisite will be C / C++ knowledge, unless someone knows of alternative IDE's, so I presume I'll need to delve into either (both?) of those. Any suggestions on good primer materials? Which leads back to the topic: which IDE would be most suitable for a b
  9. Hello, as I wrote in my presentation post, I'm totally new to MCUs and programming. I've always loved to start using Arduino stuffs but, because off the cheap cost of Stellaris Launchpad, I decided to buy it. I'd like to know where can I start from in the meantime. Books, sites, tutorials, manual...anything in your mind are accepted. My goal is to realize something different from a "blinking led" Thank you very much and...thrilled to begin.
