Porting to msp432

Post by boniface » Mon Apr 25, 2016 11:56 pm

Dear microPython community,

I would like to port microPython to msp432.
And, I wanted to know if anyone else is interested and/or has already tried doing it. or maybe some people on the forum can help me in my efforts.

Regards
Boniface

Do you have this board https://store.ti.com/msp-exp432p401r.aspx ?

Nice,

Have you look in the "OutOfBox"-Software from
http://software-dl.ti.com/msp430/msp430 ... x_FDS.html
Package: MSP-EXP432P401R_Software_Examples_linux.tar.gz
In directory: /Firmware/Source/OutOfBox_MSP432P401R/driverlib
Maybe useful...?

Do you have found some driver packages?
Or any point to start with?

Hello Tetraeder,

Sorry, it took me quiet a while to put some basic things together. That was the reason for this late reply. And now, i will actively work on it.
I have started working on the msp432 port and was somehow able to compile the files of the minimal port for the msp432.
Hope you are still interested.

Regards

Where did you order it from? Mine took just a few working days, but there are lots you can do even without having the board.

Here is my repo:
https://github.com/BonifaceBassey/micro ... 432/msp432

Let me know if you have any contributions.

I compile it, but get error as below.

CC build/_frozen_mpy.c
make: *** No rule to make target 'drivers//driverlib/MSP432P4xx/gcc/msp432p4xx_driverlib.a', needed by 'build/firmware.axf'. Stop.

I'm using ubuntu 14 and had the same issue. The /gcc/ folder was not in drivers/driverlib/MSP432P4xx/. I updated my driverlib folder with "MSP432_DriverLib_3_10_00_09" from TI's website and that issue is gone now.

It appears to compile with no errors. Did you use "xdsdfu" to load "firmware.bin" to the msp432 board?

Thanks
