The BLINKY example program toggles the LEDs on the board and prints "AD Light" and "AD Temp" values to the serial port and the GLCD. The "AD Light" value depends on the light irradiation.

The BLINKY example project demonstrates assembling, compiling, linking, downloading, and debugging with the µVision IDE on the MCBTMS570 board. The on-board LEDs make it easy to visually verify that the program loads and executes properly. The HyperTerm terminal emulator program makes it easy to verify serial output.

Loading BLINKY

Open the project Blinky.uvproj located in the folder \KEIL\ARM\BOARDS\KEIL\MCBTMS570\BLINKY with the µVision menu Project - Open Project.

Open Project dialog

The µVision window Project displays the source files that make up the project.
