Using the MSP430-EXP430FG4618 Development Tool and the eZ430 kits blink the LED1 half the speed.

Laboratory gpio: lab2 - blinking the led half the speed

Introduction

The hands-on laboratory consists of configuring the I/O ports, setting up the input lines to read push buttons and the output lines to feed LEDs. The following exercises have been developed for the three hardware development tools.

The first to be discussed is the MSP-EXP430FG4618 Experimenter’s board. Modifications are later made to suit the other development boards. The main differences between the boards are related to the specific ports in which the buttons and LED are (or can be) connected. For the development of this laboratory, Code Composer Essentials v3 has been used.

Procedure

Using the Lab1: Blinking the LED example, independently of the hardware development tool, reduce the value of the software delay to half its previous value.

#include "msp430xG46x.h" void main (void){volatile unsigned int i; WDTCTL = WDTPW | WDTHOLD; // Stop Watchdog TimerP2DIR |= 0x04; // Configure P2.2 as Output while(1){ // Infinite loopi=30000; // Delay do (i--);while (i !=0); P2OUT ^= 0x04; // Toggle Port P2.2 using an exclusive-OR} }

- In order for a rate of two blinking LED state transition each second, the software delay loop should count to approximately 15000 {15000 / 32768 = 0.5 sec};

i=15000; //Delay

This example and many others are available on the MSP430 Teaching ROM.

what about nanotechnology for water purification
RAW Reply
please someone correct me if I'm wrong but I think one can use nanoparticles, specially silver nanoparticles for water treatment.
Damian
yes that's correct

is there industrial application of fullrenes. What is the method to prepare fullrene on large scale.?
Rafiq
industrial application...? mmm I think on the medical side as drug carrier, but you should go deeper on your research, I may be wrong
