HOWTO: MSP430G2553 Hardware UART

I made a small example showing how to use hardware UART through USCI_A on the TI Launchpad with a MSP430G2553 MCU. Receiving is done through interrupts. Got to the HOWTO page Get the code at github Note: If you have an MSP430 MCU which does not support hardware UART (e.g. the MSP430G2231), have a look […]

libconio Usage Documentation

Add the usage documentation for “libconio” an other “libemb” component. The article describes using “libconio” for basic console IO through “libserial”. Go to “libconio” usage documentation “libconio” is part of “libemb”

libserial Usage Documentation

Next “libemb” component got its usage documentation: “libserial”. The article describes sending receiving with “libserial”, as well as how to use the ring buffer provided with the library. Go to “libserial” usage documentation “libserial” is part of “libemb”

HOWTO: MSP430G2231 Software UART

Update: I made a second example based on the one TI has in it’s examples. It is based on Timer_A for RX and TX. You can find that example in the “timer-a-uart” branch. This example shows how to use software UART on the TI Launchpad with a MSP430G2231 MCU (which does NOT have a hardware […]
