Is the MSPhere project work stopped completely ?

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

As someone moving from Atmel's (both baremetal and Arduino/clones) to MSP430, I was really jubilant to find something like MSPhere, but looking at the blog and this forum, I get the impression that the project has been stopped/abandoned. Can the project owner comment ? Is there any hope of reviving the work ?

 

For me, if TimerA, GPIO work reasonably well, without excessive bloat (beyond say 15-20% of native C code), it is good enough, although having I2C/TWI and PWM abstraction would be good. If someone has used MSPhere for such tasks, with reasonable level of success, would like to hear from them.

 

cheers,

Jay

Hi Jay,

 

Sorry to have let this lament for so long, but as far as I'm concerned, the MSPhere project is dead. I had some unfortunate life events pull me away from mcu work, and I've since lost interest in this project. Not to mention, there have been several other projects that attempt the same thing and pull it off much better than MSPhere... friendly_launchpad and EasyMSP come to mind, as does a neat little project porting the Arduino IDE to a LaunchPad compatible form: Energia. Hope this helps!

The Energia project seems to have a lot of potential for those who want an Arduino environment. I got it sort of

working on Ubuntu 11.04. It still seems to need some work. I did get it to compile some of the sample programs

and then run with the Serial Monitor. * I have my Launchpad connected to an FTDI serial usb device hence the ttyUSB0 *

 

-rick

 

Here it is with the 'TimerSerialExample':

Hmm.... Interesting.

 

Whats the size of the binary?
