After pasting this system into the window, it can save you As utilizing the identify “flash_led. ” The window will now appear like this: on the most sensible of the window are 5 button icons. One has a checkmark. That button will reason Energia to ascertain this system for mistakes. the subsequent button has an arrow. That button will ship this system to the LaunchPad desktop and begin that application working. sooner than you could run your application, you first have to attach the pc operating Energia on your little LaunchPad machine. this is often easy—simply plug one finish of a USB cable into the LaunchPad and the opposite finish into the massive desktop. because you loaded the drivers for the LaunchPad if you happen to put in Energia, your desktop understands the way to converse with the little LaunchPad desktop. There are just issues left to do to make your software paintings. First, inform Energia which board you're utilizing. The instruments menu has a Board merchandise. you're utilizing the “msp430g2553” board (because there’s an MSP430G2553 chip within the LaunchPad): subsequent, inform Energia which communications port the LaunchPad is attached to. it really is most likely the final port at the checklist within the instruments menu Serial Port menu merchandise. If it isn’t, Energia will whinge and you'll attempt the others in flip: Now, finally, you could click the Energia button that has the little arrow on it. that might ship your software to the LaunchPad and begin it working. you need to see the pink LED at the board begin to flash.

Listening is termed enter, and conversing is named OUTPUT. because you intend to make an LED flash, you're conversing, so set the mode of the pin that's attached to the purple LED at the board to OUTPUT. that's what the road does within the setup() functionality. within the loop() functionality, you switch the LED on through atmosphere that pin to excessive, utilizing the digitalWrite() functionality. Your little LaunchPad computing device is especially quickly. it might run thousands of strains of code each moment. in the event you easily became the LED off back without delay, it can now not seem to flash, simply because your eye can’t become aware of flashes that ensue thousands of occasions in step with moment. so that you have to upload a hold up among turning the LED off and again on back.
