I am working with the MSP430F5529 Launchpad w/the Pervasive Display Gen2 EXT2 board and various eInk displays (BW, BWR). There seems to be a wide array of official(?) and unofficial SDKs, FW dev kits, boosterpacks, etc. available with varying degrees of compatibility with this particular LaunchPad. I am looking for some basic pointers on creating a simple GUI tool for sending images to the display. I can compile the latest 1.21 FW (via CCS using PDI Apps as target), flash the FW and run the (precompiled) PDI Apps Ver 1.21.exe GUI tool to send images to display, however it seems there is no source code for this GUI tool provided(?). Or, am I just not looking in the right place? Is there a project and/or document that explains/demonstrates creating a simple GUI or command line to interface with the hardware (for example making calls to the PDI_apps_drivers command handlers) to send an image to the display. So far I have found two projects which seem to have potential for good starting point(?): CCS IDE and EPD Extension Board Gen2 (EXT2)_v1.21 using the PDI Apps target _preferable_ (or the MSP430F5529 specific example target). Energia IDE (or Visual Micro MSVS plugin) and EPD_Demo.ino with the Pervasive_EPD_BoosterPack2 (I'd prefer to use C++, but not completely opposed to python if necessary as starting point.) Thanks for any pointers in the right direction.
Hi all, Based on reading the 430 forum and Github Energia/Pervasive issues lists, it appears that someone has successfully setup and tested the EPD Booster with Stellaris (LM4F120). I have acquired an older 2.7 Pervasive Display (which appears to require PWM) and booster board (version 1.5). Using Energia, I can successfully directly connect using my MSP430G2553 so I know the board/display is ok. I want to connect the EPD to my Stellaris -- since there is a PWM requirement, I believe I will need to use the wireharness (instead of direct connecting) and set up a macro for PWM to connect from a Stellaris pin to pin 9 of the EPD. In the EPD_PINOUT_Energia.h under the EPD_PINOUT under sketches, I see the PWM macro for MSP430F5529 -- what is the equivalent macro and pin mapping for Stellaris? The header below it for LM4F120 in EPD_PINOUT_Energia.h simply uses Pin 9 (which is ok for the newer displays which do not require the PWM). Please advise. Thanks! Jim
