Hey, so I'm trying to pass an arduino uno project to my launchpad msp430FR2433. I already programed the right pins for the servo and sensor and I succesfully uploaded the program to the board but I can't get it to work correctly. The only thing that it does is that puts the servo in position 0. is there a problem with programming or should I have an issue with the connections?? I'm also curious to know if the Launchpad supports both of these components such as arduino does. This is my program: (I'm using energia) #include <Servo.h> Servo servo1; // create servo object
ESI Project: Servo motor controllerI have been interested in making a servo motor controller. I wanted a microcontroller with a hardware quadrature encoder so when TI had a call for projects utilizing the Extended Scan Interface of the MSP430FR6989, I thought this might be a good fit. Servo motors have several advantages over stepper motors including increased torque, lower power consumption, feedback control to eliminate missed steps. The problem is that servo motors are rather expensive compared to stepper motors. I obtained several surplus double-shafted, coreless DC motors with planetary gearboxes for $14. They turn eas
