ADC to UART problem - Code vault

UART_TX() seems to accept character arrays (ie: strings), but you pass it an integer value. First convert the integer to a character string before passing it to UART_TX()unsigned short value=ADC10MEM;char text[6]; // Longest string is "65536", which takes 6 characters (including the null termination) itoa(value, text, 10); // convert the value to a text string in base 10 numbers UART_TX(text); Thank you, this worked well forme, just instead of itoa, i've used sprintf..i was not sure which ".h" to add to work with itoa... here is my code...

Posted by Enrico Garante on Jun 25 2013 under ARM | PIC | Tutorials | ADC | MSP430 In this new episode of our journey into MSP430 I will explain the basics of Analog to Digital Conversion on the MSP430G2231.We will write a program that will read an ADC channel and will toggle some leds based on the result of the conversion.

MSP430 LaunchPad Tutorial - Part 3 - ADC

We start as usual with the inclusion of the header file for the MSP430G2231, the leds stuff and with the definition of a variable that will store the result of the conversion. We also declare a function that will initialize the ADC module. Robot Design - Analog Sensors and the MSP430 Launchpad. Analog Sensors and the MSP430 Launchpad This tutorial is an introduction to interfacing analog sensors to MSP430 series microcontrollers.

A sample circuit and program will be developed using a light dependant resistor (LDR) and the MSP430 Launchpad. The circuit functions as a simple light meter. Festkommaarithmetik. Das Problem[Bearbeiten] Ein immer wiederkehrendes Problem ist die Anzeige von Messwerten per UART/RS232 oder LCD.


Measuring temperature with your microcontroller using NTCs. Often you want to measure environmental variables with your microcontroller, e.g. brightness, temperature, humidity, gas concentration etc.

Measuring temperature with your microcontroller using NTCs

Measuring a temperature with a microcontroller can be done in several different ways depending on the accuracy required and temperature range involved. A thermistor (temperature dependent resistor) can be used as a cheap temperature sensor for temperatures ranging from -40°C up to 125°C. A thermistor is basically a semiconductor device whose resistance changes with temperature due to physical effects inside the semiconductor material. There are two types of thermistors: Basic ADC question - MSP430 Ultra-Low Power 16-bit Microcontroller Forum - MSP430™ Microcontrollers. BrandonAzbellI don't believe you would get results that are meaningful, if your reference moves around.

If you have such a scenario, I would suggest generating a reference voltage that is a known value through the entire input Vcc swing that the MSP430 device would be subjected to. If I knew my input voltage is going to be between 0.5V and 1.5V, would the internal 2.5V reference be a suitable choice? - /ge423/datasheets/MSP430Ref_Guides/Cexamples/MSP430G2xx3 Code Examples/C/ Untitled. Using the internal temperature sensor - Code vault. TI has some sample code for the internal temperature sensor, but it does not explain how to scale the ADC reading to useful units of degrees.

Here is a step-by-step explanation of how to do the scaling with integer math for degrees C, K and F. There is also sample code to display the temperature on a Nokia 5110 LCD. themo.jpg129.34KB888 downloads The data sheet (SLAU144) has this formula for converting temperature in degrees Celsius to voltage. V = 0.00355 * C + 0.986. Tutorial: Using the Internal Temperature Sensor on a MSP430. Tutorial: Using the Internal Temperature Sensor on a MSP430. Getting Started with the MSP430 LaunchPad Workshop.

CS4101. Announcements Final Project (Demo: 1/21/2013) Course Information. Msp430g2553 simple USCI UART print. USCI and ADC With the MSP430. In my power supply I am going to want to monitor four voltages. Because other pins will be handling UART and I2C communication, I’ll want to measure the voltages connected to the inputs A5,A4,A3,A0. I could do this by hand, by changing the input channel in ADC10DTC1 from INCH_5 to the other channels I want to sample, but the MSP430 has a mechanism for sampling from multiple inputs and returning all of the values via DMA (direct memory access). The following program incorporates several changes to make this work. It includes a new array, adc_result[] which will hold the result of our sequence of ADC conversions.

I’ve filled it initially with junk data (the numbers 7 through 12) for this experiment so we’ll be able to see that the conversions have been successful. The UART code is largely unchanged, though our message length has been extended to 42 characters in order to return all of the values at once. MSP430G2553/LaunchPad UART RX example - Code vault. MSP430 Getting Started. Polling - LED controlled by Push button Polling refers to querying a device on its state, such as whether a button is pressed or not.

The upside of polling is its relative ease of implementation, the downside that it requires the CPU to, perhaps constantly, check the device. The following waits while the device is not ready; when ready the device is serviced. Hardware UART. An example showing how to use the hardware UART on the MSP430G2553 to transmit and receive characters between a terminal on the computer and the MSP430 launchpad over the USB connection. In this example sending an ‘R’ or ‘G’ will turn the red and green LEDs on and sending an ‘r’ or ‘g’ will turn them off, respectively. To send and receive characters over the serial port you can use the serial monitor that is built into Energia, click on the magnifying glass button on the top right of the window.

Make sure the baud rate is set to the same rate as that specified in the code. You can also use a serial terminal program such as Br@y Terminal. Reference - Getting Started.

These are the most popular devices. MSP430 Launchpad. If you read much code written by the MSP430 community, you’ll notice a couple of differences from the code I have written. Two things in particular stand out to me. Where I have use names for constants like pin0mask, most code will use pre-defined constants, like BIT0. Anleitung zu Versuch 2 - MPTP.pdf. Illustrated guide to interfacing Maxim OneWire (1-Wire) devices DS18B20 on TI Launchpad MSP-EXP430G2.

Maxims proprietary one wire devices have been popular with hobbyist for a long time. The small and incredibly accurate (for hobbist) DS18B20 and DS18S20 series of temperature sensors from this family of devices have been used on many platforms. I too have used this temperature sensor, DS18B20 in particular in some of my hobby projects. MSP430 LaunchPad Taster Interrupt. MSP430 LaunchPad LED Timer. By Aldo Briano Timer A is used to blink the LED. After every overflow, the timer A generates an interrupt which is used to blink the LED. Since the timer is clocked by SMCLOCK (running at approx. 1Mhz), 8 overflows are counted to approximate blinking every 0.5 seconds. Create new Project Download Code Enjoy!
