Archive for the “TI Launchpad” Category

Trying to figure out what to do with the Value Line chips I decided to make a Persistence Of Vision text display, fitting in all the best bits of the ascii table.

The font in 5×7 pixels making the it 470 bytes including a smiley.

Ideally it wants a way of programming it without rewriting the whole program, perhaps a low speed soft serial on one of the Port2 pins, not sure yet.

The source file can be found here main.c

Having a strip of breadboard attached to the Launchpad is quite handy, the only minor problem is the pin labels, or lack of, since they’re printed on the PCB.

So I quickly made up these labels to stick on female header, they include extra GND and VCC labels.

If you have trouble with the GIF I’ve also made a PDF, which can be downloaded from this link
