You're right in your assessment of its usefulness in data logging. <br /><br />General comment to everyone: I know a lot of people have written asking if I'm going to continue. The current plan is to do so, but I have a lot of things changing in my life right now that take priority. I do hope to get to the point where I'm able to return; thanks for your interest and patience!Davidhttps://www.blogger.com/profile/02144862918620225279noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-8853820565211362966.post-22174848552770470972011-06-26T13:37:39.563-04:002011-06-26T13:37:39.563-04:00Hi David,

Also it further reduces power consumptionsPChttps://www.blogger.com/profile/17774764882646072400noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-8853820565211362966.post-7210974418438914822011-06-10T22:59:57.279-04:002011-06-10T22:59:57.279-04:00Get your Dissertation finished.

Thanks for the excellent blog, this pos...Hi David,<br /><br />Thanks for the excellent blog, this post has inspired to make a nice LC meter with my launchpad.<br /><br />I wanted to point out what I believe to be an error in your error calculation. Specifically the dC/dF calculation. Here's how I think you obtained the derivative.<br /><br />C=t/R * 1/ln(1/F)<br />x=1/F<br /><br />For this derivative t/R is a constant so we are only interested in the second term. Using the reciprical derivative rule<br /><br />Dx 1/ln(x)= -(1/x)/(ln(x))^2<br /><br />Substituting x=1/F back our final result would be<br /><br />dC/dF=-t/(R(ln(1/F))^2) * 1/(1/F)<br /><br />Which is the result you obtained. The problem is that as soon as you make the substitution x becomes a function of F, and since you're looking for the derivative of C with respect to F and not x the chain rule applies. The general derivative of the ln function is<br /><br />Dx ln(x(F))=x'(F)/x(F)<br /><br />Applying this definition we find <br /><br />Dx ln(1/F)= -F^-2/F^-1= -F/F^2= -1/F<br /><br />With this in tow, using the reciprical rule again we find that dC/dF is <br /><br />dC/dF= t/R * (1/F)/(ln(1/F))^2<br /><br />Which is what I believe to be the correct answer. I could very well be wrong but I thought I would bring it up and see what you thought.<br /><br />With the corrected derivative, you'll find the effect of F on the error is greater then you originally thought.<br /><br />I confirmed the general derivative of the ln function in my edwards & penney textbook. <br /><br />Thanks again, for the inspiration.<br /><br />JorgeJorge Garciahttp://support@cadsoftusa.comnoreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-8853820565211362966.post-64559855838302153412011-05-02T04:19:44.036-04:002011-05-02T04:19:44.036-04:00hi David, ur blog has been really helpful. i am to...hi David, ur blog has been really helpful. i am totally new to microcontroller.. anyway could please explain on ur next lesson how to use Timer to generate PWM..<br /><br /><br />thank u very muchsanjuhttps://www.blogger.com/profile/14453788538996870679noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-8853820565211362966.post-14118864555377959082011-04-27T11:30:08.543-04:002011-04-27T11:30:08.543-04:00I'm glad it's been helpful.

I know, for example, that it optimizes libraries like stdio to save room (an example I'll share when I do a post on UART etc.), and I would imagine it's possible to optimize the compiler further.<br /><br />Another option is to get one of the newer G2xx devices that has more memory and similar capability to the chip you're using now- you might be able to snag a couple of free samples to try out!Davidhttps://www.blogger.com/profile/02144862918620225279noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-8853820565211362966.post-49394047661008836952011-04-25T09:50:04.393-04:002011-04-25T09:50:04.393-04:00Hi,

I have a question about the Launchpad kit: do you know if the CCS-4 debugger dumps the bootloader code along with the user program onto the MSP430xxxxx at debug time? I am running out of program space and I need every bit of space available.<br /><br />Thanks.<br />ABAnirbanhttps://www.blogger.com/profile/00285530012534090130noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-8853820565211362966.post-23692008577743976702011-02-21T15:42:32.975-05:002011-02-21T15:42:32.975-05:00Great to see another tutorial in the making.
