Content for Energia


Energia is an open-source electronics prototyping platform started by Robert Wessels in January of 2012 with the goal to bring the Wiring and Arduino framework to the Texas Instruments MSP430 based LaunchPad. The Energia IDE is cross platform and supported on Mac OS, Windows, and Linux. Energia uses the mspgcc compiler by Peter Bigot and is based on the Wiring and Arduino framework. Energia includes an integrated development environment (IDE) that has it’s foundation in the Processing IDE (Processing→Wiring→Arduino→Energia). Energia is also a portable framework/abstraction layer that can be used in other popular IDEs. Utilize a web browser based environment with Texas Instruments CCS Cloud at or TI’s powerfull CCS Desktop IDE.

Plotting Live Data of a Temperature Sensor (TMP006) Using MSP432 LaunchPad and Python

“The TMP006 is a temperature sensor that measures the temperature of an object without the need to make contact with the object. In this tutorial well plot live temperature data from the BoosterPack (TI BOOSTXL-EDUMKII) using Python.”

Texas Instruments MSP-EXP432 - MultiTasking

“This is Texas Instruments MSP-EXP432 multitasking tutorial. Here you can see how to run multiple sketches that can communicate with main sketch, where all global variables are defined. Software used for this project is Energia. It’s IDE very …

How to implement Finite State Machines using Energia

“Finite State Machines (FSM) are widely used in embedded applications and are well suited to controlling things that are event driven. The potential benefits include: A formal method to capture and test all states and inputs, easily defined logic, and …

Internet Controlled RC Car

“This project allows a user to control an RC wirelessly via WiFi through the use of the app, Blynk, which must be downloaded on your phone. This project is a continuation from the Line Follower Robot project I posted previously …
