BOOSTXL-SHARP128 with MSP-EXP430FR5969
Kris2475 posted a topic in Energia - MSPHi All, I've been trying to get my BOOSTXL-SHARP128 to work. I've done loads of searches, but I can't find a solution. Does anyone know how to get the module to display a simple "Hello!" type message using Energia? Please see my code - below. It just seems to display lots of lines and dots. Any ideas what I'm doing wrong? Any help would be much appreciated.
MSP430 and BOOSTXL power consumption
Kris2475 posted a topic in Energia - MSPHi, I’m trying to get my MSP-EXP430FR5969 (or preferably MSP-EXP430F5529) to work with BOOSTXL-SHARP128 at a few uA when it is not selected or being written to, i.e. when it’s idle. My MSP430s consume only a fraction of a uA in lowest power mode, but as soon as I add myScreen.begin() to setup(), it all goes crazy. In my sketch (below), I have set all ports as outputs to ensure there are no floating inputs. This reduces current consumption from several hundred uA to ~160 uA. I then connected my BOOSTXL-SHARP128 to my MSP-EXP430FR5969 via jumper wires to LCD_DISP, LCD_CD, SPI_CLK, SPI_
