My project uses an eZ430-rF2500 pair and CCS/Grace for the IDE.
Has anyone been able to create an empty CCS Grace Project and successfully include the SimpliciTI stack? I found a few tutorials online for importing SimpliciTI into a project, 2 were good but both were missing steps. After getting the stack completely installed and compiled in a standard, empty MSP430 project, I attempted installing into a Grace-enabled project. It fails to compile and gives issue with the __system_pre_init() but the error is vague.
I can use code from SLAA325a and get the radio enabled with no issues. I can also use Grace to enable the SPI on USCIB0 and communicate with the CC2500, again, no issues.
I would really like to use SimpliciTI as I want to incorporate the chronos into the project at some point (albeit with a different transceiver).
If anyone could test creating an Empty Grace Project for the ez430-rf2500 and install SimpliciTI that would be great. Let me know what you come up with.
This sounds like a real challenge, just in terms of time. You'd have to extract things from the BSP, such as Timers and ISRs, and move those into a Grace project. Definitely doable, but with some work!
I personally dislike the SimpliciTI BSP quite a bit, but once you figure it out, it is at least usable to a large degree. It would be nice if TI created a Grace version though, as they seem to be moving more towards that.
Man, I thought this thread was dead and there was no interest. I did manage to create a Grace project and include SimpliciTI. My programming skills have already exceeded the need for Grace and I've moved forward with my projects.
Once I figured out the SimpliciTI's included BSPs, I've created them for the MSP430G2553, MSP430FR5739 and MSP430F5529. Helps to have all my processors communicating now.
That's exactly where I ended up. I didn't even realize Grace was on the system, and just ended up using the SimpliciTI BSPs. At this point, switching over is just not worth it at all.
I found the one difficult thing about using the SimpliciTI stack is getting the correct EM board to do packet sniffing!
