This past week or so has produced some promising movement as well as some valuable learning experiences, I will outline these below.   ADXL362 Dead As noted in Blog Entry 3, I have been working to get the SPI working in a useful and simple format. While working on this there were issues in determining if it was the code or the ADXL362 that was not working correctly. This is where the first lesson was learned, the true value of simple and cheap test equipment. By simply connecting the break ...
The past week has been spent trying to get a reliable SPI connection between the MSP430F5529 and the Analog Devices sensors as well as mapping pin connections for all devices needed for this project.   SPI Connection The initial design plan was to use one SPI module for all SPI devices, this would include the CC3100 as well as the accelerometers and temperature sensor. The spi.c file was altered to allow for multiple device selects and all code was changed through the tcp_socket demo proje ...
Its been a while since my last update. In this time I have received the contest kit, which I will outline below, and outline a basic approach to move forward taking into account the short period of time left for this project. There has also been some analysis done on data rates and possible data representation for end users.   Kit Outline Looking over the system there was a clear need for a single wireless connection that could handle all the data. A quick calculation was done to determin ...
I would like to say a big thank you to Element14 for hosting this challenge. I would also like to say thank you to the supporters, Analog Devices, Tektronix, Electrolube and Leeds Becket University for selecting my proposal and giving me the opportunity to take this idea further.   Project Outline This objective of this project is to monitor an athlete to determine if any critical harm may have occurred or will have the potential to occur. The technologies that will be incorporated are as f ...
