Introduction: POV USING MSP430 LAUNCHPAD

Hello every one here i give more detail about how to built this
project POV using MSP430 LAUNCHPAD. for this project i wrote library file Pov.h to work with Energia software. you can download that and use it for more easy programming. for do this project you need two steps.

  • design custom module.
  • using library file for programming.

Step 1: DESIGN CUSTOM MODULE

Picture of DESIGN CUSTOM MODULE

it is important necessary to connect 47k ohm resistor with msp430g2231 ic RST pin. then only the ic will work.my library file has limitation that it can work with only five leds to display words in pov display.in this i am using MSP430G2231 IC which has 2KB flash memory. so it can display small words alone in POV display. i suggest to use MSP430G2553 IC which has 16KB flash memory so it help to show more than one words in our POV display. The library file also support for MSP430G2553 only thing we need to change is that pin declaration in programming.


Step 2: USING LIBRARY FILE FOR PROGRAMMING

download my library file in zip format:

https://sites.google.com/site/msp430andarduino/Pov...

  • extract the library file copy the extracted folder "Pov".
  • open energia software folder.then open hardware folder -> msp430->library.
  • then paste the Pov folder in library folder.click the energia application.
  • goto file->examples-> pov->pov_hello.
  • it will open example program for pov.compile it and upload it in MSP430 LAUNCHPAD.then unplug the ic and insert it in custom module. all done . you are ready to go with this project.

if you don't have energia software download it from here.

Hi,

When i compile your code it shows fatal error. I dont know what is the reason forthat. Can you please say upto how many text we can display in your program...please mail to me xavierscientist@gmail.com

Its because of the SIZE of each letter. ex: If you use letter "M", you can only use 1 letter with it. I have edited the CPP file mail me. I will send you the edited Library file.

hi
i send reply to your mail id.

pamarthy made it! (author)2015-09-01

hey thanks man it worked very nice it was awesome the only problem is how much the speed it should spin

thanks man good work

do you have any other projects like this?
