In this latest lesson we learn about the USCI peripheral, write a UART driver, as well a menu which allows us to change the frequency of the blinking LED on the fly! Check it out:
If you think your MSP430 project could use a performance boost, the ARM Cortex-M4F powered MSP432 lines of devices are sure to do the trick. Get the launchpad for only 12.99! That’s an amazing price considering it includes a JTAG debugger for ARM!
This latest lesson is all about timers and creating a simple timer library that can be used for practically any application. We make some modifications to our code to use this library to blink the LED instead of the the using delays. Check it out here:
Our third installation in the hardware tutorials – Circuit Fundamentals 2 – has been added. Enjoy!
Finally our first lesson of 2015 – lesson 7 on upgrading the build system is now available here. In this tutorial we look at reorganizing our code and using makefiles to simplify the build.
Lesson 6 on interrupts is now available here.
[M. Emre TÜRE] was bold enough to take these tutorials to the next level and compile MSPGCC on his Raspberry Pi. It took him 6.5 hours but he was successful! He has offered to distribute the compiled toolchain, so let me know if you are interested. Big thanks [M. Emre TÜRE]!
Kevin, our hardware expert, has released lesson 2 on circuit fundamentals. Check it out here!
Simply Embedded now has our very own Twitter feed @simplyembedded. Go ahead and give us a follow!
Great news everyone. We now have a new tutorial section dedicated to embedded hardware written by Kevin. He will be starting his own site but until then he will be mooching off mine. Jokes aside, he actually wrote these specifically for a software oriented crowd, and when he does get around to making his own site, it will be in much more detail. The tutorials will be focusing on subjects relevant to what is covered on the software side. Kevin has over 12 years of experience in digital design and he a great teacher so check out it out. Lesson 1: The Basics.
