So, now we need debugger for our Launchpad. Since lmicdi have limited command set (am I wrong?), I need full-fledged debugger, so I’ll use OpenOCD.
Now, I’ll try to compile lmicdiusb, and install arm-none-eabi-gdb for on-board debugging…
DON’T FOLLOW THIS HOWTO!!!
It seems that arm-none-eabi-gcc 4.6.2 from ports has some problems with FPU (floating point)!!
I’ll update this post when I figure out which one!
Since I have two of these boards, and my primary OS is Mac OSx, I’ll try to setup loader and toolchain on it.
Ok, it took me few days to continue, but here is breakout of flex cable connector, for breadboard.
It doesn’t look pretty, but no shorts and everything is connected.
Pins 1 and 2 are GND and Vcc, and i think that pin 3 is for contrast.
I’ll try to connect it to propeller in next few days…
I have small lcd display, I think it’s 20×2 chars, from old photocopy machine that I dissasembled, that I never tried to use it. But, it’s using flexy cable for connection so I first had to desolder original one! And of course, it doesn’t have standard, breadboard, spacing! So, I’ll try to connect it to breadboard with some wires…
