Problem in Receiving char on MSP430F449

Discussion in 'Embedded' started by mahesh_shobhraj, Apr 3, 2005.

  1. Hi,
    I am having problem in receiving any char using the following code on
    MSP430-449STK2 board from OLIMEX.

    This code is as it is taken from example "fet440_usart01_19200" given
    with IAR.

    I have been struggling with this since ages.... :-(

    Any help in this matter willbe appreciated.


    #include <msp430x44x.h>

    void main(void)
    FLL_CTL0 |= XCAP14PF; // Configure load caps
    UBR00 = 0x36; // 1MHz 19200
    UBR10 = 0x00; // 1MHz 19200
    UMCTL0 = 0x00; // no modulation
    UCTL0 = CHAR; // 8-bit character *SWRST*
    ME1 |= UTXE0 + URXE0; // Enable USART0 TXD/RXD
    IE1 |= URXIE0; // Enable USART0 RX interrupt
    P2SEL |= 0x30; // P2.4,5 = USART0 TXD/RXD
    P2DIR |= 0x10; // P2.4 output direction
    _EINT(); // Enable interrupts

    for (;;) //
    _BIS_SR(CPUOFF); // Enter LPM0
    _NOP(); // Required only for C-spy

    interrupt[UART0RX_VECTOR] void usart0_rx (void)
    while ((IFG1 & UTXIFG0) == 0); // USART0 TX buffer ready?
    TXBUF0 = RXBUF0; // RXBUF0 to TXBUF0

    I can't go into it in detail, but how about this for an approach:

    (1) Take the character echo out of interrupt into a tight loop in
    main(). That eliminates interrupt snafus. Remember to test for character
    received etc.
    (2) Make it flash a LED when it receiuves a character. If it doesn't,
    the problem is on the receive side (have you selected port alternate
    functions etc.?)
    (3) Use a scope to check that the character is getting to the board at
    all, and if so, if anything at all comes out of the transmit port.
