[Energia Library] Jaffl: Just another FatFs library

Recommended Posts

I have been searching for a FatFs Energia library for the FR5969 a while and haven't come across anything that worked, so I decided to try make one. If there is one out there.... ahhhhhhhhhhghhghgh.


The library is called Jaffl: Just another FatFs library  :)   


It is located at:  https://github.com/geometrikal/Jaffl



  • It is written for the MSP430FR5969, mainly because transmit and receive SPI bytes routines hard coded to USCB0. If someone can make this more generic it would be welcome.
  • The Jaffl wrapper is based on the FatFs wrapper by David Sirkin.
  • The latest FatFs version (ff11) is used, but not all functions may have made it to the wrapper.
  • The diskio.c MMC interface comes from the TI example code for the MSP430F5529 LaunchPad with a few changes: 1. there were extra functions added to attach the SPI init / change speed / cs routines. 2. Class 6 and 10 cards weren't initialising, so instead of sending CMD0 once before failing (during disk_initialization()) it keeps sending every 1ms until it gets the right response, or one second has passed.
  • f_printf was changed to f_vprintf in ff.c and modified to accept va_list instead of the normal variable argument designator (the dots: ...) . This is because Jaffl.printf wraps it, and needs to pass the variable arguments as va_list.

A quick test example:

#include "SPI.h"
#include "Jaffl.h"

int counter = 0;

void setup()
  Serial.print("Begin, return code: ");
  Serial.print("Open file, return code: ");
  Serial.println(Jaffl.open("test.txt", FA_WRITE | FA_CREATE_ALWAYS));

void loop()
  Serial.print("Print file, return code: ");
  Serial.println(Jaffl.printf("Hello world: %d\r\n", counter++));
  Serial.print("Sync, return code: ");

The code isn't polished, but seems to work. I will be doing on going testing as this will be used in another project, but I've put it up now to get feedback and help spot bugs. 99% of the code came from other sources so thanks to those people. Its all on github so if you have changes do a pull request.


2015-03-18 - Added MISO internal pull up to get some cards to work.

I tested your port on the new Launchpad MSPFR5994:
This card already has an SD card mounted, and everything works perfectly.
Thank you very much for your work
