MSP430G2955 PCBs Available

13 posts in this topic

PS- With the memory resources of this chip, I totally think an Arduino Esplora-ish game machine is in order.  PCB with d-pad pushbuttons on the left side and 2 or 4 pushbuttons on the right.  LaunchPad boosterpack headers in the middle for any of the LCD boosterpacks we have.  Anyone a fan of this idea?

Uh, for what it's worth, I did get a quote from Mouser for the G2955 TSSOP-38 chips .... minimum order 200, $1.75/pc with 4-6wk lead time.  Don't think anyone's doing enough with these yet that they need a group buy of that scale ;-)

Looks like waiting a few months pays off?

 

Digikey is listing MSP430G2955IDA38R at $3.37 in single unit quantity, $3.02 each at 10, $2.72 each at 25.

 

 

 

edit- I typo'd. Had 2995 instead of 2955 in the text. URL / link is correct though.

Yup!  Sure looks like it... Would like it if Mouser got off their ass and stocked them, but Digikey works too.
