Hi, I've just started playing with the MSP430 (MSP430G2252) and i'm having lots of problems with getting myself up to speed. If anyone could help me out on the basic, it would be greatly appreciated... my background is in the hardware and i am no expert at programming For the beginning of my project (just to get me working on the right track), i'm trying to make a countdown with 2x 7segment displays while using a 16bit shift register. At startup, i need to read the value of Port1 (to find out the value to start the count from), calculate the 2x8bit value to be sent to the shift register .. t
Earlier this year I happened to be in Singapore in transit, and took the opportunity to visit Sim Lim Tower - a high-rise mall full of electronic components shops! Amazing place, and amongst other things (including super-cheap kits for the kids to build!) I picked up three 5x7 LED matrix panels for a dollar each (!!). They didn't have any part numbers that I could see, but after experimentation they turned out to be row-anode devices and once I figured out the pinout I decided to build a project out of them. As any of us who have children know, it's a daily battle to get kids to brush thei
Hello everyone! I'm continuing my project of creating an RGB LED matrix capable of displaying live images being transmitted from a laptop via a serial cable to the MSP430G2553. At the moment, I'm coding four 8x8 Common Anode RGB LED matrices joined together to create a 16x16 display. Hardware I'm using: - 3 * TLC5940s (one for each colour) - 2 * 74HC595 shift registers (drives the columns/anodes) I'm using code provided by RobG from this link <http://forum.43oh.com/topic/2315-tlc5940-examples/> and this one <http://forum.43oh.com/topic/3328-rgb-to-hsv-conversion-with
