About a year ago I made this stepper controller for my son's rotary table on his mill. I used the FET430UIF at the time as I've been lead to believe that wires to an off board chip from a launchpad just would not work. FET debugging with the FET430 was a real pain as I could not set more than one break point at a time with an MSP430G... chip. So this time around I figured I would try the...

Is anybody programming the MSP430 in Forth? For beginners there is 4e4th, "Forth for education", see http://www.4e4th.org http://www.4e4th.org/ and there is a special IDE for incremental programming, the 4E4th-IDE, including flasher. No IAR or other tools needed, see http://4e4th-ide.org http://4e4th-ide.org/ - for now it works only with the MSP430G2553. There are other Forth versions avai...

Just a questions to the Scan-IF interface of e.g. msp430fr6989 or msp430fw428. I am just in the beginning phase of a new project and have not used this interface before. How many rotary encoders (quadrature enoding) can I connect to them? It is not really clear. It has 3 channels and only channel 2 can count up and downwards? So I can use it with just one encoder? A alternative woul...

Hello, I have been trying to use EZUSB in a Linux VM using VirtualBbox. I attach my EZUSB to the vm successfully. But Ubuntu Linux doesn't detect it for some reason. I tried to use it directly to a Linux box (bypassing the VM) and it works fine with mspdebug. I believe people have tried it in VMWare workstation and player without success. Any pointers? Thanks. --=20 Cheers...

I am using a MSP430FR2111 with IAR Workbench 6.5 or 7.4 when it is installed. I find that I cannot alter the pins to toggle up and down. I have cleared the lock. There is no problem with my PCB as I can toggle a led artificially. If I remove all components and the track for the pin, it still does not toggle. I have tried a number of pins and also a number of boards. I was concerned about the ...

Can anyone advise if they have tried to obtain the above part. I am told by TI that it is active and in production. Digikey and Mouser both state it is a non-stock item and on a 6 week lead time, which is not guaranteed. It looks to me like this is another announcement that was made too early and one should not design with this just yet. TIA Peter Peter Grey Sigma Delta Technologies ...

Hello, my name is Trevor! I was wondering if anyone could help me generate 3 different sounds using a piezo speaker on a msp430 using only assembly language. I understand these different 3 sounds are different frequencies and are thus controlled by DCOCTL and the different BSCCTL registers. In theory, I believed a jump statement could go to different labels where the settings of the registers and ...

Hi, In summer 2013 I found a web page full of what I remember as being dozens of MSP430 assembly source code files, probably all open source. I believe it was on a TI page. I downloaded and used the 16x16-> 32 bit multiply and 32/16 bit divide routines, and I thought I had carefully bookmarked this very special page. Now I can't find the bookmark, or the page in hours of searching. Anybo
