LCD and Touch booster pack


Recommended Posts

Hello Larsie,

 

I have recently purchased your LCD Button Booster Pack from 43oh. I have been trying for the last week to download your sample code for CSS from: "lars.roland.bz/test/LarsLCD-CCS.zip" but have not been able to get through. I am new with the MSP430 platform and it would save me a lot of time if I could download that sample. Any help would be appreciated. By the way it looks like a well put together design and I think it may be a perfect platform for a prototype I am hoping to assemble in the next few weeks. Thanks again,

 

Paul

Hi,   After getting in contact with Larsie I managed to buy one of these modules. I went for the non-touch version since it has a space to mount an MSP chip on a DIP socket, bind that to an Anaren A

EDIT: I've entered some summary information about the board here, so you don't have to browse through the whole thread. Button board: 4 standard tactile buttons, that can be soldered on below the d

Thanks, just downloaded the file from your web page and it worked fine. I am just getting started with the MSP430 and was going to use CCS because that seems to be what TI pushs. Do you like IAR better? I am not tied to any editor yet, my background is in Visual Studio, PLC code, and scripting languages used in industrial motion controls. I have also done some coding with the Arduino. Any advice is always apreciated. Thanks Again!

Larsie, What version IAR is the sample code written in. I downloaded 5.0 from TI but I am unable to get anything to compile without a linker error. I read in some blogs that there is some issues with this between versions of IAR. If not I am sure it is something I have set up wrong. Also is the sample code for the Touch Boosterpack or the DIP boosterpack with buttons or does it not matter? Thank You!

I just received the Lars -LCD_touch_boost, nice.. I downloaded the CC code was able to compile with a warning about the compiler version different. I have 4.1.2. The code runs as is though as I was exploring and testing I found that the large font mode does not work. I do see that it is available for numbers and and a few letters. But when attempting to use the large font everything get displayed as a solid block. If i modify the indexing into the the array 'numchar[x] [y]' where the 'x' is a hard coded number the proper display is shown. Has anyone else come across this?

Correct the small fonts work but the large fonts do not a solid box is displayed. Stepping through the code I noticed that 'numchar[chr]' returns 0xff always. If I hard code a value for 'chr', say '0' is works. It has to be with how the multi dimensional is being handled. For test purposes I did the following for all cases with success

 

if(mychrIdx == 0 ) mychar = numchar[0];

if(mychrIdx == 1 ) mychar = numchar[1];

if(mychrIdx == 2 ) mychar = numchar[2];

if(mychrIdx == 3 ) mychar = numchar[3];

SPIWrite(DATA, mychar);
