Mini Mood Light v1 Kit

The Mini Mood Light is a small interactive and reprogrammable coloured light generator circuit.  The mood light consists of a Texas Instruments MSP430 micro controller connected to two RGB LEDs, four buttons and some supporting components all on a custom circuit board. Detailed assembly instructions are available on Instructables. The kit is available from http://partfusion.com/products/mini-mood-light-v1/ for €20 and posted worldwide from Ireland for €2.

DIY LED Sign with MAX7219 Dot Matrix Module STM8S003F3 MCU for AVR PIC MSP430 Arduino ARM STM32

To satisfy electronic DIY hobbyists, ICStation has developed MAX7219 Dot Matrix Module. It uses the Max7219 chip which do a great job on saving of MCU I/O. It can not only control each point individually, but also can be extended without limitation to meet your requirements on LED Sign, Team Logo and so on. What's more, it's controlled by the STM8S003F3 MCU with 1K data storge space which is low cost, low power consumption, very powerful. Major Building Portions of Electronic DIY Kits: 1. The 16pcs of MAX7219 Dot Matrix Kits are ready 2. Decomposition the pin header 3. Welding the SMD and max7219 Chip 4. Welding the electrolytic capacitor 5. Welding the pin header 6. Assembling the PCB 7. Setup the Dot Matrix 8. Wire Connection 9. Power the Dot Matrix and testing with our Code Follow the steps: https://www.instructables.com/id/DIY-LED-Sign-with-MAX7219-Dot-Matrix-Module-STM8S0/

Solar charger schematic using mppt

I am facing problems with my solar charger circuit using mppt. The main problem is the mosfet switching followed by the dc-dc converter. When i connect my circuit to MSP430 to give PWM at gate voltage drops across the solar panels. I am using a pnp and npn combination to drive the NMOS IRF540. Please help me with the schematic ..

Link in instructable .pdf file doesn't work

The link in the .pdf version of my instructable to a .zip file appears broken. The link in the instructable itself is fine.  How are the links .pdf version of instructables maintained and how can I get them updated? My instructable is         https://www.instructables.com/id/MSP430-Based-Chronulator-using-Launchpad-chip/ I am not a PRO member, so the only .pdf instructables I can see are ones that I authored. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

VAWT a new way to wind generation

Guys need help to realise its feasiblity and pros & cons. This project will comprise of a renewable energy source which is controlled by TI msp430 controller by closed loop system. This renewable energy source will use a magnetically levitated vertical axis wind turbine with single phase permanent magnet alternator made by our team. There will be 3 stationary wind guide vanes/flaps of concave shape on the outer periphery of turbine. These vanes will be controlled by dc gear motor for constant wind flow and protection against high speed winds. Using perturb & observe MPPT algorithm on DC-DC boost converter, constant DC voltage for GRID integration is made. A lower energy Bluetooth module will send data on user computer about whole system parameter, hence making the whole system to be smart and hence data is saved in database. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fC5hYLjhO9U
