Getting started with MSP430 launchpad development using Code Composer Studio v7.x

code composer studio tutorial for msp430 launchpad microcontroller

Code Composer Studio (CCS) is an IDE to develop software for microcontroller's from Texas Instruments like MSP430,MSP432,Tiva/Stellaris etc.CCS is based on Eclipse platform and supports a plug and play architecture in which multiple compilers/debuggers can be used for developing and debugging software.

In this tutorial we will learn to develop software for the MSP430 family of microcontroller's using the Launchpad development board.Here we will use both the TI's proprietary compiler as well as the free and opensource mspgcc compiler for building code.

ATtiny LED Control using RS485 protocol from PC

ATtiny PC RS485 communication software in CSharp dot net framework

In this tutorial ,we will control 4 LED's on the ATtiny Quad Motor Control Board from a Windows PC through a RS485 link.The Control progam running on the PC which control the LED's are written in C# and runs on the .Net Framework.The control code can also run unmodified on a Linux PC with Mono Framework installed.

8051 Software Development using SDCC

8051 programming using small device c compiler tutorial

Small Device C Compiler (SDCC) is a free opensource (GPL) C compiler for 8051 based microcontrollers .It consists of linker, assembler, simulator and debugger for developing software for the 8051 architecture.

SDCC is completely free and there is no restriction on code size.

In this Tutorial ,we will learn how to configure,compile and generate hex file using Small Device C compiler (SDCC) for the 8051 architecture.

8051 Software Development using Keil uVision IDE

8051,8052,nuvoton w78e052ddg embedded software development tutorial using Keil uvision ide

Keil uvision IDE is a popular embedded software development IDE which is widely used to program the 8051/8052 architecture.It is quite popular in the Academic as well as Engineering community.

In this short tutorial we will learn how to setup the Keil uvision IDE,Compile a C program and generate hex code for the 8051/8052 architecture.

 

Selecting a Microcontroller Architecture for your Embedded Project

comparing 8051,PIC,AVR and MSP430 architecture for embedded projects

Selecting a Microcontroller architecture for your embedded system project can be one of the easiest or difficult decisions you will ever face as an electronics engineer or as a casual hobbyist.There are bewildering arrays of micro controllers from hundreds of vendors with different price points and feature sets.

The best and easiest advice i will give to any person is to go with an architecture or microcontroller you are already familiar with.Most of your embedded projects can be implemented with your favorite micro controller architecture.However this approach will not work when you are working on a project with strict constraints on Power,Space or project budget.In such cases we have to select a custom microcontroller architecture that will suit our unique needs.

This article written for students or hobbyists who  are starting out on embedded systems and wants to select their first microcontroller.
