Description: LaunchPad is an easy-to-use development tool from Texas Instruments intended for both beginners and experienced developers. The LaunchPad offers everything you need to get started with your microcontroller-based projects in a small package.
The LaunchPad development tool is a part of what TI calls "the Value Line series," meaning the devices are inexpensive and accessible even for hobbyists. The integrated DIP target socket allows all 14 and 20-pin MSP430..
The Texas Instruments MSP430 family of ultralow-power microcontrollers consist of several devices featuring different sets of peripherals targeted for various applications. The architecture, combined with five low power modes is optimized to achieve extended battery life in portable measurement applications. The device features a powerful 16-bit RISC CPU, 16-bit registers, and constant generators that attribute to maximum code efficiency. The digitally controlled oscillator (DCO) allows wake-up from low-power modes to active mode in less than 6?s.
The MSP430x11x2 and MSP430x12x2 series are u..
