  • New Toys, Bigger msp430 and a stellaris launchpad

    New toys came in the other day from the 43oh.com store.
    I ordered 2x msp430f5510 USB dev boards, created By Robg , also I received a Stellaris Launchpad (on loan till mine come in) .

     

    These are Nice little boards, and will work great for any one trying with a Launchpad and would like to try some of the bigger flagships. These are very easy to solder and get up and running.

    To program them, all I did was connect the RST, TST, Vcc, Gnd between the launchpad and the dev board. Ran mspdebug, and it worked on the first try.

    Sorry for the poor screen shot.

    As of right now, I am working on porting msp430USBDev API from TI. It is both IAR and CCS code, and both will not work out of the box with mspgcc.

    But with some minor changes I think I can get it to work.

    There is a Port of the devpack, but It has an autogen.sh file that makes the makefile and links things automatically…… and in general I had issues with it, it compiled correctly but did not run on my 5510, even after I changed the minimal configuration options it gave.
    Now I don’t know what the guy changed or what he did to get it to work other then some linker options about the usb buffer/ram.

    I will give an update on this as soon as I get it to work.
