MSP430F5132: Source code for communicating with TIDA-01353 GUI

Part Number: MSP430F5132

Hello,

We are using TIDA-01353 eval board to run a BLDC motor. However, the source code is not available for this design on TI website.(http://www.ti.com/tool/TIDA-01353

  • We started using the source code for TIDA-00472 but that does not support GUI. Can you provide the source code supporting GUI for this board?

    Hello and thank you for your interest in TI reference designs. We received your question and have it queued for review and response from our Industrial Building Automation team. The design owner will be back in the office Monday and you will receive a response from him either then or Tuesday at the latest. We apologize for the delay. The software for this design was actually developed outside of the MSP430 team who initially reviewed your question.

    Best Regards,

    Hi,

    Unfortunately this design was based solely around the TIDA-00472 code and was not altered to keep porting firmware relatively easy for testing. There is not currently a GUI platform supporting this firmware.

    We have been trying to get our BLDC motor running with this board but no success. Once we program the board, the red LED starts blinking for a while and then it goes solid red or sometimes it goes off and the motor never spins. Any idea why this is happening and how to solve this issue? We appreciate your URGENT response.

    Hi,
    It is difficult to troubleshoot without knowing your exact setup and motor specs, have you modified the firmware parameters based on your own motor?
  • In reply to Brian Dempsey:

    No, can you explain what parameters we need to change?
  • In reply to user3758380:

    Also, what variables do we need to monitor on CCS?
  • In reply to user3758380:

    Please refer to Section 2.2.3 Customizing the Reference Code to see what parameters can be changed for your individual motor testing requirements. Its difficult for me to say what variables you need to monitor in CCS, if you read through the design guide and still cannot get the motor to spin, I would suggest monitoring the fault pins of the MCU (you can find these in the schematic, or design guide as well) to see if there are any issues there.

    Thanks for your response! We have got the motor spinning now. The only problem left is at start-up when we need the maximum torque at full load and motor is struggling to start up and needs to be helped. Any idea how to increase the starting torque for the motor? Appreciate your urgent response.

  • In reply to user3758380:

    Hi,

    I am glad to hear you got the motor spinning! For the startup torque, have you tried adjusting the START_UP_DUTY percentage or START_UP_MAX_DUTY percentage values. An increase in these duty cycle values for start up should allow for more startup torque with your motor.
