MSP430 Launchpad (MSP-EXP430G2)
For the cost of a sandwich, you get a complete and easy to use MSP430 tool, that can be used to kickstart your learning and development of MSP430. Yes – the MSP430 costs just $4.30 and has everything that you need to kickstart your project.
Launchpad integrates a DIP Target, that can support upto 20 pins. This allows the MSP430 Value Line to be inserted into the socket and you are ready to start your development work. The Launchpad also has on board push buttons, LEDs and IO pins for communicating with external devices.
What do you get for $4.30
For $4.30, you get MSP430 Launchpad that has a development board ( a fully Assembled baord), 2 programmable MSP430 microcontrollers, one mini-USB cable, PCB connectors for expandability, external crystal for increased clock accuracy, and free & downloadable software integrated development environments (IDEs) – everything you need to get started today.
Scalable – The LaunchPad is a simple introduction to the MSP430 microcontroller family. As application requirements change, programs developed on the LaunchPad can be migrated to higher end MSP430 devices.
