One of the largest supplies of microcontrollers and discrete components. Oh and those TI-89 calculators!


SMS example using Tiva C LaunchPad and SIM 808 GSM Module

In this article we will use the SIM808 evaluation board (evb-v3.2) to interface with the TM4C123GH6PM microcontroller to send and receive a simple SMS text. The code is applicable to any evaluation board of the SIM808 module. The TM4C123GH6PM microcontroller is an ARM architecture controller, so it will also be a good opportunity to get familiar w.......

MSP430 3-axis Accelerometer and Gyroscope Example Driver using the LSM6DS0

This post will detail how to connect an STMicro LSM6DS0 accelerometer and gyroscope to an MSP430G2553 and display its data on a GUI in real-time. The built-in GUI Composer inside of Code Composer Studio will be used to rapidly graph the accelermoter and gyroscope X,Y,Z coordinates. I will be using the STEVAL-MKI161V1 Adapter Board since it comes i....... Read More

Graphing UART Data with LabVIEW Example using MSP430

This post will cover how to start a new LabVIEW project and graph some simple data from the COM port on the TI MSP430 launchpad. LabVIEW is by far the easiest and most suitable program for graphing and analysis. I have used several GUI builders such as Qt Desktop, Qt QML, C# Visual Studio, python matplotlib, and Java Swing - all of which still do....... Read More

MSP430 Launchpad - GUI Composer Example

TI introduced a GUI tool to quickly help visual your embedded system. It works inside of the CCS IDE since v5.3. See the offical wiki documentation in order to learn more about the features. This post will be using the MSP430G2553 that comes with the Launchpad to demonstrate the powerful functionality of the GUI builder. Often times embedded syste....... Read More

MSP4340 LaunchPad - Simple UART Config and Echo

The Universal asynchronous Receive/Transmit (UART) is a vital communication protocol that is relatively easy to setup and use. It can be coded strictly in software using general purpose I/O pins, commonly referred to as bit-banged, or it can be implemented in hardware. The advantage of using the all hardware approach is that is frees the CPU to ex....... Read More

MSP430 Launchpad - Blinking your First LED

This post covers how to quickly get started using the MSP430 Launchpad. There are several variations of the Launchpad now circulating ever since its launch in 2010. I will be using the popular MSP430G2552, which is usually categorized under the MSP430G2XX series. You can easily start playing with one of these at a nearby hackerspace or on digikey.......
