MSP430FR2633: CapTIvate projects for CAPTIVATE-PROXIMITY
Part Number: MSP-CAPT-FR2633
I have an older eval kit of the MSP-CAPT-FR2633 that came with the CAPTIVATE-PROMITY Rev B board. I could not find any example files for it, and upon further research I found it was discontinued.
If possible I would still like to use it for some basic functions for testing: Left zone enables a GPIO. Right zone enables a different GPIO. Center zone disabled. The hand motions across the left or right zone will alternate enabling/disabling their respective GPIOs, so that I can power cycle external circuits.
I tried setting up in the Captivate Design Center the Proximity sensor, but the element count only allows for 1, I cannot select 2 (for the left/right zones). Am I doing this right?
Are you trying to sense only proximity or proximity gestures?
We are glad that we were able to resolve this issue, and will now proceed to close this thread.

In reply to Leonardo Estevez:
Only trying to sense proximity. And turn down the sensitivity to 2 cm instead of the default 10 cm.
In reply to Thomas McCue:
The attached zip includes the example project which runs the sensors + the gesturing and LEDS.
It also contains the CapTIvate Design Center project file.
The version of the CapTIvate Design Center project *.ser was created in an earlier version.
You can still open it in the latest version of design center but will probably see a warning to rebuild with the newer version.
You should copy the RX/TX assignments (take a snippet) and re-create with same RX/TX assignments.
Once you rebuild it should talk with your PCB.
I took the example project and remade with latest version, it worked. I then turned the sensitivity down so physically pressing the PCB will count as a touch, instead of the original example where hovering your hand about 10cm up counted as a touch.
Now I just need to have in code for two separate GPIOs to enable high/low when I touch the left or right zones (I want to power cycle two external circuits with each touch as on/off). I'm a hardware guy, so I'm a little slow to figure things these things out in software. Any help you can provide on this would be much appreciated.
I recommend you look at this example in resource explorer:
