MSP430 VFD clock – Manhattan style

Tuesday, May 10th, 2016

Daniel has a nice write-up about building his Manhattan style VFD Clock based on the MSP430G2553 microcontroller and the MAX6921: I know that and IV-18 based clock isn’t anything original. In fact, Adafruit used to sell a kit for this exact purpose. I don’t really care that it’s not original,...

Clock with retro display

Thursday, April 10th, 2014

Marcus Linderoth built a clock using a TI MSP430g2553 microcontroller and a HPDL-1414 display, that is available at Github: After having ported Contiki to the Launchpad, I was eager on doing something with it. I built this simple clock with a vintage HPDL-1414 “smart four-character 16-segment alphanumeric” display and a msp430g2553....

MSP430G2553 sensorless BLDC motor control development

Tuesday, July 9th, 2013

Tribes over at the 430h forum has been working on a sensorless BLDC motor controller using a MSP430G2553: My current project is to build a controller for a sensorless BLDC motor using a MSP430G2553. I want to realize trapezoidal control with Back-EMF/zero-crossing detection. I plan to detect zero-crossing with the...
