Why MSP432? The MSP430 is a popular microcontroller designed and marketed by the Texas Instruments (TI). It comes with some powerful peripherals such as ADC, Timer, SPI, I2C, UART, and so on. It has a 16-bit proprietary RISC architecture meaning only TI makes the products. Due to popularity of ARM architecture, many semiconductor design companies are moving away from proprietary architecture and adopting the ARM as the CPU of choice in all their designs. This is the case with MSP430. The MSP432 is an ARM version of the MSP430. In other words, all the MSP430 peripherals are moved to MSP432 with ARM instructions and architecture as the core processor. Another major feature of the MSP432 is its lower power consumption which makes it an ideal microcontroller for use in designing low power devices with IoT. See the link below: http: //www.ti.com/lsds/ti/microcontrollers_16-bit_32-bit/msp/low_power_performance/msp432p4x/overview.page Why this book? While there are several MSP430 textbooks on the market, currently there is only one textbook for MSP432. This textbook covers the details of the MSP432 peripherals such as ADC, Timer, SPI, I2C and so on with ARM programs. It also includes the programs for interfacing of MSP432 to LCD, Serial COM port, DC motor, stepper motor, sensors, and graphics LCD. All the programs in the book are tested using the MSP432 LaunchPad trainer board from TI. See the link below: http: //www.ti.com/tool/MSP-EXP432P401R#buy

1) Our ARM book series The ARM CPU is licensed and produced by hundreds of companies. The ARM Assembly language instructions and architectures are standardized and all the licensees must follow them. The first volume of this series (ARM Assembly Language Programming & Architecture by Mazidi & Naimi) covers the Assembly language programming, instructions, and architecture of the ARM and can be used with any ARM chip, regardless of the chip maker. Since the licensees are free to design and implement their own peripherals, the peripherals of ARM chips vary greatly among the licensees. For this reason, we have dedicated a separate volume to each licensee. This volume covers the peripheral programming of Texas Instruments (TI) ARM Tiva C series. Throughout the book, we use C language to program the Tiva C Series TM4C123G chip peripherals. We use TM4C123G LaunchPad(TM) Evaluation Kit which is based on ARM(R) Cortex(R)-M4F MCU. See our website for tutorials and support materials: http: //www.MicroDigitalEd.com/ARM/TI_ARM_books.htm 2) Who will use our ARM textbooks? The primary audience of our textbook on ARM is undergraduate and graduate engineering students in Electrical and Computer Engineering departments. We assume no background in microcontroller and embedded systems programming. It can also be used by embedded system programmers who want to move away from 8- and 16-bit legacy chips such as the 8051, AVR, PIC, and HCS08/12 family of microcontrollers to ARM. Designers of the x86-based systems wanting to design ARM-based embedded systems can also benefit from this series.

Real-Time Bluetooth Networks

Shape the World

Author: Jonathan W. Valvano

Publisher: Createspace Independent Publishing Platform

ISBN: 9781540353092

Category: Bluetooth technology

Page: 300

View: 6982

Welcome to Real-Time Bluetooth Networks - Shape the World. This book, now in its second printing December 2017, offers a format geared towards hands-on self-paced learning. The overarching goal is to give you the student an experience with real-time operating systems that is based on the design and development of a simplified RTOS that exercises all the fundamental concepts. To keep the discourse grounded in practice we have refrained from going too deep into any one topic. We believe this will equip the student with the knowledge necessary to explore more advanced topics on their own. In essence, we will teach you the skills of the trade, but mastery is the journey you will have to undertake on your own. An operating system (OS) is layer of software that sits on top of the hardware. It manages the hardware resources so that the applications have the illusion that they own the hardware all to themselves. A real-time system is one that not only gets the correct answer but gets the correct answer at the correct time. Design and development of an OS therefore requires both, understanding the underlying architecture in terms of the interface (instruction set architecture, ISA) it provides to the software, and organizing the software to exploit this interface and present it to user applications. The decisions made in effectively managing the underlying architecture becomes more crucial in real-time systems as the performance (specifically timing) demands go beyond simple logical correctness. The architecture we will focus on is the ARM ISA, which is a very popular architecture in the embedded device ecosystem where real-time systems proliferate. A quick introduction to the ISA will be followed by specifics of TI's offering of this ISA as the Tiva and MSP432 Launchpad microcontroller. To make the development truly compelling we need a target application that has real-time constraints and multi-threading needs. To that end you will incrementally build a personal fitness device with Bluetooth connectivity. The Bluetooth connectivity will expose you to the evolving domain of Internet-of-things (IoT) where our personal fitness device running a custom RTOS will interact with a smartphone.

Page: 568

View: 1447

The most visible use of computers and software is processing information for human consumption. The vast majority of computers in use, however, are much less visible. They run the engine, brakes, seatbelts, airbag, and audio system in your car. They digitally encode your voice and construct a radio signal to send it from your cell phone to a base station. They command robots on a factory floor, power generation in a power plant, processes in a chemical plant, and traffic lights in a city. These less visible computers are called embedded systems, and the software they run is called embedded software. The principal challenges in designing and analyzing embedded systems stem from their interaction with physical processes. This book takes a cyber-physical approach to embedded systems, introducing the engineering concepts underlying embedded systems as a technology and as a subject of study. The focus is on modeling, design, and analysis of cyber-physical systems, which integrate computation, networking, and physical processes. The second edition offers two new chapters, several new exercises, and other improvements. The book can be used as a textbook at the advanced undergraduate or introductory graduate level and as a professional reference for practicing engineers and computer scientists. Readers should have some familiarity with machine structures, computer programming, basic discrete mathematics and algorithms, and signals and systems.

Page: 366

View: 5725

Embedded systems are a ubiquitous component of our everyday lives. We interact with hundreds of tiny computers every day that are embedded into our houses, our cars, our toys, and our work. As our world has become more complex, so have the capabilities of the microcontrollers embedded into our devices. The ARM® Cortex™-M3 is represents the new class of microcontroller much more powerful than the devices available ten years ago. The purpose of this book is to present the design methodology to train young engineers to understand the basic building blocks that comprise devices like a cell phone, an MP3 player, a pacemaker, antilock brakes, and an engine controller. This book is the third in a series of three books that teach the fundamentals of embedded systems as applied to the ARM® Cortex™-M3. This third volume is primarily written for senior undergraduate or first-year graduate electrical and computer engineering students. It could also be used for professionals wishing to design or deploy a real-time operating system onto an Arm platform. The first book Embedded Systems: Introduction to the ARM Cortex-M3 is an introduction to computers and interfacing focusing on assembly language and C programming. The second book Embedded Systems: Real-Time Interfacing to the ARM Cortex-M3 focuses on interfacing and the design of embedded systems. This third book is an advanced book focusing on operating systems, high-speed interfacing, control systems, and robotics. Rather than buying and deploying an existing OS, the focus is on fundamental principles, so readers can write their-own OS. An embedded system is a system that performs a specific task and has a computer embedded inside. A system is comprised of components and interfaces connected together for a common purpose. Specific topics include microcontrollers, design, verification, hardware/software synchronization, interfacing devices to the computer, real-time operating systems, data collection and processing, motor control, analog filters, digital filters, and real-time signal processing. This book employs many approaches to learning. It will not include an exhaustive recapitulation of the information in data sheets. First, it begins with basic fundamentals, which allows the reader to solve new problems with new technology. Second, the book presents many detailed design examples. These examples illustrate the process of design. There are multiple structural components that assist learning. Checkpoints, with answers in the back, are short easy to answer questions providing immediate feedback while reading. Simple homework, with answers to the odd questions on the web, provides more detailed learning opportunities. The book includes an index and a glossary so that information can be searched. The most important learning experiences in a class like this are of course the laboratories. Each chapter has suggested lab assignments. More detailed lab descriptions are available on the web. Specifically for Volume 1, look at the lab assignments for EE319K. For Volume 2 refer to the EE445L labs, and for this volume, look at the lab assignments for EE345M/EE380L.6. There is a web site accompanying this book http://users.ece.utexas.edu/~valvano/arm. Posted here are Keil uVision projects for each the example programs in the book. You will also find data sheets and Excel spreadsheets relevant to the material in this book. The book will cover embedded systems for the ARM® Cortex™-M3 with specific details on the LM3S811, LM3S1968, and LM3S8962. Most of the topics can be run on the simple LM3S811. DMA interfacing will be presented on the LM3S3748. Ethernet and CAN examples can be run on the LM3S8962. In this book the term LM3Sxxx family will refer to any of the Texas Instruments Stellaris® ARM® Cortex™-M3-based microcontrollers. Although the solutions are specific for the LM3Sxxx family, it will be possible to use this book for other Arm derivatives.
