Could you please share links to recorded seminars on the below roadtests.
Tiva C Series TM4C1294 Connected LaunchPad
TI Haptics Enabled Gaming Controller BoosterPack
TI Fuel Tank BoosterPack & MSP430F5529…
Thank you for the chance to test this kit out, looking forward to writing a review and seeing how this board performs.
Moreover, I did manage to get an Example Project working with LED's all on, but it so seems that this kit was not intended to be a Launchpad ?? , I mean there isn't any easy way around this damn kit. It tool me 2-3 weeks getting a Simple blink Led Working ?? I wanted to use this kit in my Bluetooth Controlled Mobile Robot Project(technervers.com), but instead I ended up using MSP430 and Even demonstrated it at Makerspace Bangalore. I will do a review once I am settled at my new Room. I don't think it will be as a good review as i did for few kits before due to the fact that I have to learn Loads of stuff before I even get somewhere near being comfortable with this kit .
@Kas Lewis : thanks for the links, I will publish the Blink LED Example using CCS6 on my GitHub Hope that Helps . And thanks again
Hey @Kas Lewis, Sorry for the late Reply,
I had mentioned in a comment as soon as I received the kit, that the processor on the Launchpad is F28027 rather than F28027F. I got the samples couple of weeks ago but I don't have proper tools to replace a LQFN Package without damaging the original MCU. Further I have recently shifted my room So !!
reference picture comparing the 2 MCU.
Looking over my kit it is also a F28027 and the boosterpack uses a F28027F, I will check if what I have is compatible or not but this might explain some of the issues we are having. I wonder if everyone got a F28027 instead of an F28027F. Anyways the lack of documentation for the F28027 demo code is not making it any easier. I have put in my review but is neither complete or anywhere close to my standards of acceptable, but with what TI has delivered I'm not sure to much more is possible.
If it is not possible to do much more with this kit I don't expect or really want E14 sending another one as its been so long since this road test was started even if I only received everything a little over 2 months ago. We will see what can be done and report back. Gurinder as for getting the code to compile and run I was given this link http://e2e.ti.com/cfs-file.ashx/__key/communityserver-discussions-components-files/171/7776.C2000_5F00_launchpad_5F00_ba… from TI and found it helped with one demo, I still can't get any other demos to run. There is another page that they have pointed me to that may also have some help, I am in the process of going through this too. There may still be a chance to write a decent review about half of the kit at least here is to trying...
Well, I did try out the CCS6 thingy and nop it doesn't work !! It compiles and even burns the code but it doesnt debug !! that's actually strange..
Further, I am kinna busy till 14th Oct, some deadlines , so i have stopped playing with the kit for now !! may be will do so after 14th . It's 2AM here, do i guess i should go to bed now will post my findings !
That is the approach I would take. I got two road tests on the same day applied for them weeks apart so just trying to make a game plan on how to get everything done in the right amount of time as well as update my CC3100 code for the new firmware and enable it to work on the CC3200. So with all that it may take me a week or so to actually get down to posting useful comments on E14.
That being said I have looked at this road test a bit and I cant seem to find a quick easy way to get started with it, could not find demo code to run in CCS, if you could point me in the correct direction that would definitely help me get started with this road test sooner and help me start posting useful comments here sooner too.
Code Composer Studio (CCS) v5 is a complete, Eclipse-based integrated development environment (IDE) that supports the C2000 LaunchPad. This tool enables developers to program, debug, and compule code directly onto your LaunchPad evaluation kit. CCS is available for free without any restrictions when used with the XDS1000 emulator on the C2000 LaunchPad.
