Code Composer Studio Graphing Tool Tutorial

  In this Code Composer Studio graphing tool tutorial, graphing variables will be demonstrated in Texas Instruments IDE.  The process is fairly straightforward and will be shown in a video as well as some screenshots so it can be easily replicated. Introduction For the demonstration a program running on the MSP430G Launchpad was used, with View more…

Switch Debouncing Tutorial

Switch Debouncing Tutorial Pt/2

  In this switch debouncing tutorial part 2 C code debounce algorithms will be looked at further, and their effectiveness.  All the software solutions shown will be demonstrated on the MSP430G Launchpad.  However the basic principle of operation shown in the examples, can be applied to all microcontrollers, particularly the last example which is based on some View more…

Switch Debouncing Tutorial

Switch Debouncing Tutorial Pt/1

  In this switch debouncing tutorial part 1 the cause and effect of switch bounce will be explained and demonstrated, then a cost effective hardware debouncing solution will be discussed, with oscilloscope captures to demonstrate the results.  The last section of part 1 will show a simple program based on the MSP430 , this can be used to see the View more…

C2000 Programming Model Guide Tutorial

C2000 Programming Model Guide

  In this C2000 Programming Model Guide, the two basic approaches to programming on the C2000 will be over viewed using the C2000 Launchpad.  Some code examples will be shown, as well as a code execution speed test comparing the two methods.  All the code is written in Code Composer Studio (CCS) v5.5, with the latest version View more…

C2000 Solar MPPT Tutorial 4

C2000 Solar MPPT Tutorial Pt/4

  In this fourth and final part of the C2000 Solar MPPT Tutorial, the system set-up and testing will be looked at.  This will involve the overall hardware set-up for testing, ADC calibration, reduction of noise on the ADC sampling, efficiency test and some improvements for future iterations.  The final C2000 solar MPPT tutorial C code is also View more…
