A Reference and Dictionary of electronic circuits, microcontrollers and other chips. Basic Theory and Components too.
Here you can find some information and experiments on the TI Launchpad – MSP430 series, Atmel AVR/Arduino and Microchip PICkit2 / PIC16F series.
MSP430 LaunchPad and Value Line MCUs provide a complete development environment to enable applications including 3D glasses, gaming controls, touch sensing, smoke/fire detectors, wireless networking and more.
The LaunchPad development kit is a MSP430 MCU Value Line kit. The open source kit includes all of the hardware and software needed to easily launch designs based on TI’s MSP430 Value Line MCUs, they offer up to 10X performance and 10X battery life over 8-bit MCUs. LaunchPad supports rapid prototyping and development by allowing developers to quickly drop-in MSP430 Value Line MCUs to evaluate, program or debug devices.
