Things one requires for starting with MSP430 programming

MSP430 Launchpad Development toolkit, laptop/pc, Code Composer Studio.

We can purchase the kit from  http://www.ti.com/ . We have to make an account on the website for the same. The software code composer studio is available from www.ti.com/launchpadwiki . We require license for ccs v5.

The Launchpad kit contains the experimenter board, microcontroller chip, connectors, USB cable.

MSP-EXP30G2usb-a-to-b-10ft-cable

Connect the USB cable to the corresponding ports on the laptop and experimental board. There is a preinstalled programme on our microcontroller. If the LED on the board blink then everything is ok. The pattern in which they blink depends on the program that is burnt on the microcontroller.
