So I have my MSP430 launchpad with g2553 and g2452 lying around for year now and finally have a reason to use it. I'm a total noob (I mean I programmed some assembler and C in college and know some basic stuff about MCUs but never actually put it to use), but my for my first project I've picked a tough one. That way I'll be challenged and won't get bored. So I've just bought a motherboard that only has 2 fan connectors on it, but I need at least 4 of those, so I decided to make a fan controller. I could just use some 7805s but what's the fun in that? The idea is to use the inferior msp43
I'm interested in some applications combining a microcontroller and wifi for home automation. My plan is to use an MSP430 with a cc3000 wifi module. I have started some high level functional block diagrams and am interested in any opinions on correctness and suggestions on specific 430 MCUs for the applications. Thanks in advance for any suggestions! Alarm Panel Window Blinds Ceiling Fan Dog Door Garage Door Door Lock Pool Pump Water Heater
I have several of these case fans installed on my PC. Each fan uses four standard 5mm LEDs like the one pictured here. I'd like to replace each LED with an RGB LED controlled by a ws2801 ic. I plan to design a small PCB which would include the ws2801 controller along with a 5mm RGB LED. I would probably just control the whole thing with a Launchpad and use the USB to UART connect for communication with a visual basic or python app on the PC side. The board I'm planning would almost identical the Sparkfun ws2801 breakout, the only differences being the dimensions and LED type. This will
