Hi from Germany

Recommended Posts

Hello all together,

 

I am a new owner of the MSP430 launchpad. Like so many, I started Microcontroller with Arduino, I was playing around up to now with ATTinys and Megas. The MSP430 is interessting for me because of the low power functions. I want to work with CCS6 on a Linux Mint. Right now, my first project with the MSP430 will be a brainmachine, only to learn the handling of the chip. That will be challenging, because i will need three different frequencies, and  I want to achive this with the MSP430G2552 that has only 2 Timers.

 

Greetings,

 

Sven

Welcome! I was in the same boat, an Arduino user messing with ATmegas. I got an MSP430G2 launchpad as an order stuffer from Mouser and almost signed it off 'cause I couldn't figure out how to make it work on MacOSX... then found a tutorial and when I gave it a closer look found the clocking and interrupt handling quite interesting, and kept playing. Never looked back since.

I recommend using Eclipse, GNU compiler, mspdebug and the fine Eclipse plugin by xpg. You run Mint already so most of this is just a

sudo apt-get install

away. ;) Enjoy !

Thanks all for the nice welcome. Because of gcc and stuff for Linux, maybe later, in the moment, I first want to know about the chip. If I then get comfortable, than maybe I change over to the gnu side.
