The MSP430 is a 16-bit, ultra-low power, mixed signal microcontroller from Texas Instruments. The strengths of the MSP430 lie in its easy-to-learn, C-compiler friendly, 16-bit CPU partnered with flexible low power modes and intelligent, low-power peripherals. As a catalog market product, its versatility is applied across a number of different end-equipments including medical equipment, electricity and sub-metering, and home appliances such as smoke detectors, thermostats, etc... With over 230 parts available, there is likely to be an MSP430 for almost any application.
MSP430 Wiki Overview
If you are new to MSP430:
- Please feel free to browse our MSP430 Getting Started category for articles that cover some of the basic MSP430 knowledge you need to get started!
- Check out the MSP430 LaunchPadspage. Each LaunchPad is created to provide everything you need to get started with MSP430 microcontroller development!
- Get started with your MSP430 Launchpad by taking a workshop. You can see a schedule on the training site Getting Started with the MSP430 LaunchPad Workshop (click on Dates and Times link in the margin) or download the materials from the MSP430 Workshop wiki page.
For those of you who are new to the MSP430 Wiki, this site is the place that the MSP430 community constructs its technical knowledge in an easily search-able, cooperative environment. The architects of the Wiki have tried their best to construct the site such that no categories need to be added. However, the feedback of the Wiki community is critical to the success of the project so feel free to post comments and suggestions to the Discussion tab on this main page. The discussions will be checked periodically as we seek to integrate and organize the full breadth of knowledge that exists within the MSP430 community.
