D437 demo board with
F437 datasheet and
user's manual .
WISE 2.1d board (F149 based).
and User's Manual.
Applications and tools:
- New Digiscope program (C#/.NET program).
Old version of Digiscope program (Visual Basic).
You might need MSCOMM32.OCX in System32 directory for this version.
- Program template (take a look at functions send_data and AD ISR),
and include files.
Packets contain information about two signals (channels CH1 and CH2) with two bytes each and a chekcsum (sum of all four bytes), implemented as follows:
samples = CH1 & 0xFF;
samples = (CH1 >> 8) & 0x0F;
samples = CH2 & 0xFF;
samples = (CH2 >> 8) & 0x0F;
cs = 0;
cs += samples[x];
Application notes and utilities:
OS and kernels:
- TinyOS Forum.
TinyOS is an open-source operating system designed for wireless embedded sensor networks. It features a component-based architecture which enables rapid innovation and implementation while minimizing code size as required by the severe memory constraints inherent in sensor networks.
- FreeRTOS portable, open source,
mini Real Time Kernel - a free RTOS. Recently ported to MSP430 family.
