MSP430FR6043: Ultrasonic Transducer interface on 6043

Part Number: MSP430FR6043

I am trying to use the 6043 for a water flow application. I have the transducers hooked up directly to the 6043. I am developing with the 6043 template example. I am only getting a 1 mhz pulse coming out of ch0 and no pulse out on ch1. I noticed that the gas meter application only uses one of the channels. Is this something I have to set up in software to interface the transducers directly? I have the evm 430-6047 board and have it working fine. My plan is to created the header file using the 6047 board and USS_Design and then use that for my custom 6043 board.

    Garret,

    We have a demo project example for water on the FR6043.  This can be found below. 

    http://software-dl.ti.com/msp430/msp430_public_sw/mcu/msp430/USSSWLib/USSSWLibWater/latest/

    If you are using the template project for water, you need to be sure that the correct build configuration is selected for water, which is single tone.   To set this, right click on the project-->Build Configurations-->Set Active-->Select SINGLE_TONE. 

    Based on the information you supplied, it does sound like the project is set up for multi tone gas. 

    Best Regards,

    Eddie
