CCS/430BOOST-ADS1118: 430BOOST-ADS1118

Part Number: 430BOOST-ADS1118

Tool/software: Code Composer Studio

Hi,

We are trying to connect a 430BOOST-ADS1118 to a MSP-EXP430G2ET. We have changed the XXX2533 part which is on the MSP430 board with the one supplied in the 430BOOST-ADS1118 kit. Everything is working fine,and we can see the temperature on the screen of the 430BOOST-ADS1118 board.

We have two questions ? 

Q1. Is there any way I can get the temperature that I am seeing using my thermocouple on a file. Can I use CCS or any software to tap the 430Boost-MSP-EXP combo stacked dual-boards to get the data on to a file. I am trying to do some measurements which also needs calibration and the temperature is in the high range ( 200 + Degrees Centigrade ) . SO , I am trying to get the data off line so as not to get burnt by the flame. 

Q2. Is there any way I can program the "new" Part ( The XXX2533 ) with a higher temperature threshold, the programmer on the CCS is not allowing to me to do so. 

I have tried both CCS 5.3 and the latest 9.1 and I am sorry but I am unable to program the part.

Please some advice would be awesome

Thanks

  • Sudipta,


    Because of the nature of this question, I believe that you might get more support by posting this question to the MSP low-power microcontroller forum instead of this forum. For this forum, we can help with specifics about the ADC, and can answer questions about the function and communication with the device, but we don't have as many answers about the modifications of the code, and programming the MSP430 LaunchPad.

    Regardless, I'll ask some of the other application engineers here about the code for the 430BOOST-ADS1118 kit, but if I'm unable to get a good answer, I may have you post there (or I may be able to move your post).

    Hi Joseph,

    I have taken your advice and put the post in the MICROCONTROLLERS section. Could you please see if you can help ? 

    Regards and best wishes

    Sudipta,


    I've been talking to one of the engineers here, and we think that you would be better off using the original MSP430G2553 device on the launchpad. It's possible that the flash is locked on the board, and the original device would have been easily reprogrammed instead of taking a new device.

    If you can get the code running, we may be able to help you, but we're really here to help with the ADS1118 instead of the LaunchPad. As I mentioned in the previous post, this question might be better off in the MSP low-power microcontroller forum. I'm afraid I'm not up on the inner workings of the LaunchPads and their microcontrollers.
