I would like to write one or two more posts while we are waiting for our LaunchPads to come in. I have been throwing a few ideas around in my head about what to write of next, and can't decide; so I thought I would ask anyone and everyone who reads this blog to give me their opinions (I know your all out there, Google Analytics says so :-P )
I have four ideas so far:
1. Peripherals and Microcomputer Architecture - This would talk about some theory behind RISC processors and also would talk about the peripherals that come with our MSP430s (and other µCs).
2. How to Read Data Sheets and User Guides - I would go over the TI data sheets and user guides and give tips on how to get useful and meaningful information out of them.
3. Useful Tools and Practices - I can talk about the equipment I use during development, all of the equipment I have comes from a "student budget", which is probably less than the average hobbyiest (maybe not, who knows?).
4. My Take on Microcontrollers and TI - I can discuss what I think about the MSP430 compared to other chips, and talk about where I see things going in the future as far as µCs goes.
Whatever you guys would like me to write about I will. This blog can go in any direction pertaining to the MSP430 and LaunchPad. Maybe someone has something particular they would like me to write about other than these three things. I'm actually hoping for some suggestions and constructive critisim about my blog (even if it is about my bad grammar). If I don't hear any feedback, expect to see one of those four ideas posted somewhat soon.
The goal here is to start up a nice community around the MSP430. In the past I've seen a chip become popular because there was one place with nice information about it that people can get started with. From there a community will build up. I've set it up so you don't have to register to make comments, so please, comment away.
PS: I'm working on changing the hyper-link color since I know it's hard to read on the dark background (at least it is for me).
