About msp430 launchpad

MSP430G2 launchpad is a development board developed by Texas Instruments. The msp430g series is a series of micro-controllers. The cost of launchpad is $9.99. This is a one time investment. Once you have the launchpad, you’ll open an entire new world for yourself. Texas Instruments launchpad contains the following hardware:

  • MSP-EXP430G2 LaunchPad
  • MSP430G2553 microcontroller (with demo code)
  • MSP430G2452 microcontroller
  • Mini-USB cable
  • Quick Start Guide
  • 32kHz external crystal

(Note: You can order the board from TI itself. The link is : http://www.ti.com/tool/msp-exp430g2 )MSP-EXP30G2.jpg

Texas provides free samples of these microcontrollers. So whenever you’ll need a microcontroller, you can search their website and order free sample of whatever you like. This enables to divert you money into other electronic equipment that you require. All in all I encourage all of you people out there who like coding and controllers to get your hands on launchpad.

P.S: If you have any query regarding how to order these samples, feel free to contact me.

    • First of all there are limited number of samples one can order per year. The steps are as follows:
      1) Goto ti.com
      2) Click on my.TI login
      3) Create your account
      4) Goto ti.com again then add samples to sample cart and order.
      P.S: It would be better if you order microcontroller IC’s because the normal IC’s are easily available in college laboratories.
