Anyone have a spare LaunchXL-F280049C board I could buy?

If anyone has the above spare DSP board that I could buy for making the Clough42 ELS, I'd appreciate it. It seems the earliest published delivery dates are around the end of July 2022. Have a Grizzly G0752Z which is basically a G0602 with a VFD and DRO. I would like to add an ELS, but can find a Piccolo board. I could even replace it for you when I get my own. Hey it's a long shot, but one never knows, if one doesn't ask.

Would a F28069M work? I have one that I will never use. Still in the box.

For what it's worth, keep an eye on the TI store - I had to buy a replacement and the estimated restocking date was some time months in the future, but checked again a few days later and they were in stock again. This was around December-ish.

Unfortunately not. The ELS uses some quadrature hardware that I think is unique to the board, also the interfaces are different.

I signed up for notification of stock from the TI store about a month ago. I check every week or so, but so far, 0. However, thanks for the tip to keep checking. Maybe something will pop up.

Perhaps that explains it - I've always wondered why Clough42 used TI hardware. I've done a lot of programming on various microcontrollers (Motorola, Microchip, TI, Arduino/Mega) and the TI's have generally have been the least impressive in terms of software tool chain support. (My opinion).

OK. When I read Clough42's article, I thought it would be nice to learn a different MC but lost interest since.

The TI chip was designed as a motor controller, so it does have that going for it. I have no doubt that some M4 Arduino could do the same thing, don't need to go to an M7. It's just a pia to reverse engineer the hardware, keeping the same interface, so one can exploit existing displays and keyboard, and porting or rewriting the code.

If I can't get a board by this summer I may try porting to an M4 Arduino. Have a board with a touch display that's unused.

Have to agree with your assessment of their tool chain, others are far more advanced.
