Energia -> MSP430-JTAG-TINY-V2 -> CC430

Recommended Posts

Hi everybody,

I find the Energia very very cool project, and i'm very new user of it, so bare with me if the questions sound stupid.

 

I would like to know if anyone of you has some experience with Energia using MSP430-JTAG-TINY-V2 for program a CC430F513. If not which will be the most "compatible way for Energia" to communicate with the CC430.

 

I do have also a ez430 usb programmer the i've got with the ez-chronos watch, would be that a better option? Which one whould you suggest?

 

Thank you in advance

This programmer should work fine with CC430.  I don't use it myself, but I know others who do.

 

Energia on CC430 will need to wait.  CC430 is quite similar to regular MSP430F5, so the basic parts might be ready.  I expect that PanStamp is taking extra time to integrate all the PanStamp RF features, which may not matter to you at all.

I know that the programmer works. I use it already, no problem with that. I would like to know if Energia will support JTAG programmers like the Tiny V2

 , and about RF i'm very interested in those, about specific PanStamp RF why not... even if i'm more on the DASH7 side...

 

What about the usb programmer that cames with the ezwatch would be that ok ... i'm not familiar with the TI Stellaris boards so bare with me if the questions are stupid.

As far as I know, Energia uses the TI spy-bi-wire "ez430" interface.  I am pretty sure this is protocol-compatible with 430 JTAG, so I think it should be fine.  The bigger issue might be the compatibility with Olimex's custom DLL.  I have never had any luck with Olimex programmers, so clearly they are not drop-in replacements for TI's programmers.

 

Alternatively, you can just hookup an ez430 SBW to your CC430.

 

I'm not sure if you are just being nice about DASH7, but I'm happy to hear it anyway :)

Cool so having a chrono watch i can evantually use it with Energia with the spy-bi-wire interface (which i believe is the one used on stellaris boards). Of course i'm being nice about the DASH7 :) we are using the wizzimote for our project, i should say that we did not get enough luck :/ . But DASH7 is very promising would be nice to have more resources about DASH7 CC430.

I haven't worked on OpenTag for CC430 since December 2012, but as soon as we get HayTag finished (does not use CC430), I'll port-back all v5 updates and changes to CC430.  That should help.  In the last year a lot of work has been done to improve usability through better architecture and nicer APIs.  

 

I'm also interested in finding an intern who knows Arduino/Maple/Energia/Wiring to work with me on a wiring-based API for OT.  I'm waiting for PanStamp to finish their CC430 port (using Energia), because that will make the job easier.

I'll love to see that, our project (aside project) is running on a "custom" protocol but we would like to switch to DASH7 as soon as possible. I see that our small team is struggling with finding good docs and resources for implement dash 7 on the CC430 is not really straight forward ... anyway ... Which micro do you use for HayTag?

That looks very very interesting keep us updated.

Which micro do you use for HayTag?

Currently STM32L151.  We do a lot of DSP, so the 32bit ALU with multiply-accumulate helps a great deal.  We might move to a Cortex M0+ in the near future, though.

 

I see that our small team is struggling with finding good docs and resources for implement dash 7 on the CC430 is not really straight forward.

We're still a small community. After we release HayTag in early 2014, I have scheduled 4 weeks simply to work on documentation.
