Tutorial – Program your Launchpad in Assembly

Tutorial – Program your Launchpad in Assembly

[H]obbizine has a detailed tutorial on how to program the MSP430 in assembly. The tutorial is aimed towards beginners with a step by step explanation of the code. The code is based on the Launchpad – green led turns on when the pushbutton is pressed and red when not. This should give you a start in assembly – especially when writing interrupts.

An MSP430 Based Chronulator – Interesting!

An MSP430 Based Chronulator – Interesting!

[D]oug found the Chronulator project at ShareBrained so interesting that he decided to implement one using Launchpad kit. If you are wondering – A Chronulator is an analog, retro-ish clock with modern, programmable guts. [D]oug used two panel meters – 50uA and 100uA for the minute and hour indicators.

Launchpad SPI Ninja

Launchpad SPI Ninja

Using his previous experience on his Atmel based BusNinja, [J]oby came up with the Launchpad SPI Explorer. The serial parser is based off his previously covered RPN Calculator. If you ever want to debug any SPI based device or sensors, you can talk to it using the Launchpad without writing any code. The interactive shell allows you to send SPI packets serially with the Launchpad acting as a gateway. Links inside.

Number Crunching – The Launchpad Calculator

Number Crunching – The Launchpad Calculator

[J]oby is busy crunching out projects on his newly acquired stash of MSP430 Launchpads. Following his Metronome project featured previously, he came up with a reverse polish calculator implementation complete with the parser and shell. Compared to the polish notation, you put in the operator after the operand. If you have a spare serial port and are in a geeky mood, keep a terminal open with a Launchpad connected to it.

An Awesomely Simple Launchpad Metronome

An Awesomely Simple Launchpad Metronome

[J]oby mailed in his Launchpad Metronome project. A visual metronome is a device which musicians use to keep time to beats. An LED flashes or a loud sound plays at fixed intervals. Who would have thought of using the Launchpad for this? No external components needed – all that is required is the onboard LED and pushbutton. Links after the break.

MSP430 Interface to a TI TLV5620 DAC – Generate signals!

MSP430 Interface to a TI TLV5620 DAC – Generate signals!

[G]atesphere, regular MSP430 tinkerer, came up with a library to interface the MSP430 to a TLV5620 8-bit quad-channel DAC from Texas Instruments. The MSP430 communicates to the DAC chip via a SPI interface. His code also includes support for simultaneous updating all four channels of the DAC. Links inside.

MSP430 Interrupt Primer – Watchdog Example

MSP430 Interrupt Primer – Watchdog Example

[J]ustin gives a short primer on using interrupts on the MSP430 – what to declare and how to service an interrupt. He does this using the Watchdog as an interval timer. His explanation is not too long. Reading through it once shiuld give you a fair idea on how to code up an interrupt. Link inside.
