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

SD24 to sample a resistive bridge with pulsed bridge supply

Hi, I want to use the SD24 (24 bit ADC in the MSP430AFE2x3) to sample a resistive strain gauge bridge (load cell) with 350ohms directly. This is no rocket science in case the bridge supply is at a DC reference voltage. But I want to save power! The bridge supply is power hungry (2.5V at 350 ohms). My idea is to pulse the bridge supply e.g. 10 times per second (the load is stable) and ...

Does anyone know of a simple way of randomising some data in assembler. I want to send a RF signal between noon and 1300 hours. There are quite a few transmitters and I do not want them to all send off at once. Each has a unique ID numbered from 1-65000. TIA Peter Peter Grey
