cambazz
hello
ike
world
cambazz
oh how are you ike, long time no see. how is it in bulgaria?
ike
imigrants are runnging faster from bulgaria, than from syria
cambazz
yes same here in turkey, they come here, they dont like it, they want to immigrate to eu, but everyone treats them like crap. not nice.
ike
why they don't stay in turkey?
instanbul is so beatifull
cambazz
because people treat them like sh*t, give them no food and water, and beat and ... them
well in the new msp432 board the pin names are no longer P5_5, etc..
anyone knows the new naming scheme?
ike
aren't syria's people your brothers?
or they are kurds?
cambazz
syrians are running away from isis, kurds are being killed by the govt in an effort to start a civil war, the president lost in elections and wont leave office.
i might become immigrant too if this civil war starts.

cambazz
yes there are lots of brainless racist bastards
ike
aren't there any brave man, descendant of Mustafa Kemal Ataturk who can kill Edogan?
Edogan is the one who orederd killing of those students
cambazz
its next to impossible, he is hiding in a castle, and being protected by a private army. also killing the sob will not result in anything. but his days are limited
i could get in trouble for saying that, but at least i am on ssl
ike
I know how you feel
here in bulgaristan old crasy people vote for the biggest di*khead
and young smart people are fleeing in germany, uk and canada
i'm not that smart, so I stay here ;)
membiblio
Hello.
cambazz
hello membiblio
membiblio
So what are you all guys working on, besides overthrowing people??? :)
Bad Joke or no one working on anything fun?
cambazz
i am building a battery charge analyzer, with the new energia mt
membiblio
Nice. All types of batteries or specific?
ike
are you going to charge or to discharge batteryes with that analyzer
cambazz
well i got a solar charger, and i am measuring bat/load/solar side with ina219 current meters, and displaying on them on a sharplcd
membiblio
And... most importantly - do you like Energia and why did you choose it instead of just using CCS v6 and MSP-GCC?
cambazz
much easier, i am a veteran coder of commercial systems, but in embedded development i am only hobby level, so i like energia, but probably pretty soon i will have to graduate from it
for the new board, the pin maps are not ready so i noticed even though i do pretty complicate stuff over spi and i2c, i cant do a simple digital read
membiblio
FYI CCS v6 - if you install Resource Explorer - they have samples of code built in so it reduces the learning curve significantly.
cambazz are you completely solar powered or just experimenting?
cambazz
experimenting
so i got a good question, these launchpads have this emulator on board right, for the msp432 LP it has a chip that says on it tm4c129. same as on hercules launchpad.
can it be used for something else?
membiblio
On other launchpads it is a msp430 and it basically emulates the MSP-FET and then communicates with the chip under test by BSP - I've heard people say that you can use it for anything else as long as the target/chip under test supports that mechanism. I use JTAG myself mostly.
There are jumpers between the USB programmer side and the Target side - right?
Oh there is also a uart back channel on some boards.
Is that what you were asking or was I way off base? :)
cambazz
yes there is some sort of switchable connector probably a jtag
membiblio: well, i was asking just for curiosity. i was wondering if i could delete the bootloader or what ever that is and use this as a dual cpu board, but of course, the pins are not there, so would not be really useful
membiblio
I'm not sure if it is JTAG - that is what I thought originally but now I suspect it is doing BSL (not P) - Boot Strap Loader - it is covered in detail in TI MSP430 BSL Guide # SLAU319J available as a pdf
Oh I see what you are saying. Hmm I don't know. Something for you to think on and hack at maybe?
cambazz
yes, it would not be good for msp430 but the msp432 has a tm4c129, which is quite powerful. but i just figured that even if it was possible, there are no pins going out, or few pins rx/tx maybe, so it would not be any use
membiblio
So you all were chatting about the refugee crisis in Syria and Hungary. I'm in Pittsburgh PA USA and watching the news twice a day. Crazy stuff. Why does someone just not do something about Syria or is that my naivete?
Also I was going to offer that one of the guys in the linuxcnc room is 'off the grid' totally he just uses solar, battery and inverter to power his home and business - inspiring right?
Spirilis
I think Syria is well out of hand for any simple "things to do" right now imo and the US has frankly stuck their head out too mucj
cambazz
i am learning everything about solar, batteries, and chargers. not that easy.
Spirilis
cambazz: yep there may even be JTAG pins for the emulator, but again not too many I/O pins to play with. It does have the USB 2.0 High Speed phy though so that might be cool to tinker with
cambazz
lets make a 43oh branded fake free energy generator video, like https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cqaTG9EHbKg
for like april fools day
Spirilis
the jtag pins on the LP allow you to use other ARM JTAG tools with the msp432. The tm4c129 is also on the Hercules b/c it uses ARM JTAG too and that tm4c129 is the foundation for TI's new XDS110 CMSIS-DAP JTAG tool
ike
and here there is a msp430 bitcoin miner https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e4wFkhafEdA
cambazz
ike: heh heh heh.
i am looking for something like a micro power generator like in watches, seiko watches for example, have a wheel that spins and it converts it to electricity.
ike: i think someone ripped this guy off giving him a msp430LP instead of a bitcoin miner.
ike
maybe he want to sell $4.30 devboard for $4 300
I remember on this channel one guy asking how to make his msp430 board mining bitcoins
