Recently finished my first msp430 based robot, a Basic Light seeker! This was a project to get me to learn more about the MSP430 microcontroller. In this project specifically, using multiple ADC inputs and PWMs ( 2 PWMs was a little tricky on the MSP430G2452 but eventually got it ). The robot turns according to the difference between the light values on the left and right, using two Photoresistors/LDRs. The robot is powered my a set of 4 to 5 NiMH 1.2-1.4V batteries which directly power the l293d Motor Driver IC and DC motors, and is also fed into a LP2950-33 3.3V LDO to provide re
This is a project I made while I was learning about the MSP430's ADC10 peripheral and messing with multiplexing of 7-segment LED displays. It is a test bed for analog sensors where the 10-bit value of the analog input on the MSP430 mcu ( a MSP430G2252 in this case ) is displayed on two 2-digit 7-segment displays, which are being driven via a TPIC6B595N Power Shift register ( the SPI is currently bit-banged ). This has come quite handy for testing sensors quickly for my robotics projects and such. Here is my blog post that goes into the project in detail: http://emdinventor-blog.tk/msp430-
