Hello good folks! from Houston Tx


Recommended Posts

Figured I might as well join up so I can actually ask questions and participate. I've trolled thru the wealth of information on this site over the last week or so. It's been quite invaluable to getting me up and going with the launchpad. My experience is mostly with basic stamps and picaxes so I'm used to using a BASIC style programming language, although I have done some c# and c++ with visual studio. So figuring out C for the msp430 has been a challenge. I'm currently trying to figure out how to use a TAOS light to frequency IC with the msp430. Minimal luck so far. I guess I should post questions about that elsewhere? Anyway, great website and great info!

Hey Dave, good to have another Texan around here. Are you working with the TSL230R? I've got a project going with that as well. After I clean up the code and comment it better, I'll share it on another thread. The trick is to user a timer to set a count window. Count the number of ticks in the window and go from there.

Yes, the TSL230R would be the guilty party! Yep, I figured out I needed to use the Timer A in capture mode(from another post) and I get that conceptually...it's just the details and syntax that are getting me all mixed up. But I'm new and just starting now to absorb it all so I'm reading as much as I can and seeing how far I can get on my own. If you DO get your code on this working and cleaned up, please let me know(PM me if u want). I'd appreciate it.

Hook 'em!

Dave
