My Launchpad development board arrived today and either I am in the wrong forum or I get to be one of the first to pose a question.
The preloaded demo application (temperature sensor) appears at first to be running correctly (i.e. the LED's blink on startup and change color according to temperature) but when I run the example GUI on my PC (XP Pro fully patched) I select the appropriate serial port then I get nothing. Running Hyperteminal (2400,N,8,1) also does not indicate any output is being received.
I downloaded IAR Embedded Workbench and successfully built the example code and debugged on the development board, and stepped through the Transmit() function. A good learning exercise but everything looked fine. I therefore suspect an issue with the internal chip timing, a problem with the serial/USB interface on the development board or a setup/compatibility issue with my PC. All tricky issues to diagnose on my first day playing with a new micro.
So my question are these a) has anyone else encountered this issue b) has anyone solved it?
