MSP430 LaunchPad Development Kit

The MSP-EXP430G2 LaunchPad is an easy-to-use flash programmer and debugging tool that provides everything you need to start developing on MSP430 Value Line devices. The development kit includes a DIP socketed target board with integrated emulation to quickly program and debug MSP430 Value Line devices in-system through the Spy Bi-Wire (2-wire JTAG) protocol.

The Flash memory can be erased and programmed in seconds with no external power supply required due to the MSP430's ultra-low power Flash technology. The LaunchPad interfaces MSP430 devices to an integrated software environment such as Code Composer Studio Version 4 or IAR Embedded Workbench. These IDEs are free and unrestricted on MSP430 Value Line devices. The LaunchPad supports all MSP430G2xx Flash parts in a 14 or 20-pin DIP package.

MSP430 Microcontrollers, Texas Instruments

The MSP430 Platform is a range of mixed-signal, ultra-low power microcontrollers from Texas Instruments. The 16-bit RISC architecture is perfectly suited for wireless, low-power industrial and portable applications. This established range has a strong and popular position due to its ease of use and broad suite of development tools and support.
The MSP430 portfolio consists of over 400 devices ranging from the MSP430 Value Line to the revolutionary, highly integrated microcontrollers with embedded FRAM memory.This broad family of products offer integration suited to many designs and applications. High-performance peripherals include USB, RF, LCD controllers and Sigma-Delta ADCs. This allows designers to find the appropriate MSP430 device for many low power applications.
