MPS430F5529L reading multiple potentiometer

Recommended Posts



i try to read five potentiometer and print this values to serial monitor. I use a for loop but don't work. only work when i use A0, A1,etc.. in analogRead function. Any idea?




  Reads an analog input on pin A0 to A4 (P6.0 to P6.4), prints the result to the serial monitor.
  Hardware Required:
  * MSP-EXP430G2 LaunchPad
  * 10-kilohm Potentiometer
  * hook-up wire

  This example code is in the public domain.

int i = 0;
int sensorValue = 0;

// the setup routine runs once when you press reset:

void setup() {
  // initialize serial communication at 9600 bits per second:
  Serial.begin(9600); // msp430g2231 must use 4800

// the loop routine runs over and over again forever:
void loop() {
  // read the input on analog pin A0-A4:
  for (i=0; i < 6; i++){
  sensorValue = analogRead(i);
  delay(300); // delay in between reads for stability

Hi @@morelius21


You are not reading A0, A1, etc. with your code.  You are reading pin numbers.  See the pin map at http://energia.nu/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2014/01/MSP430F5529.jpeg


In your loop, you are reading pin 0 first (doesn't exist), and then pin 1 (3.3V), etc.  What you should be doing is reading from pin 23 through 27.

Starting point is you have an off by one eror on the loop counter: the test should be "<5", not "<6" as you are trying to do it.


But, I think the main issue is that A0, A1, etc are aliases for pin identities, not channel values. You might try:

const int analogpins[]={A0, A1, A2, A3, A4};
for (int i=0; i<5; i++) {

thanks for all replies, 


@Fmilburn: ok i understand but the samme code in arduino uno work well my code, Maybe is coincidence with the pins coincidence i I was lucky


@@enl, you are right is i<5, i will yous your array, i find is the clearest way.


now the code work well, thanks!
