MSP430 Launchpad Servo Control
saigai replied to bluehash's topic in Code vaultHi all! I'm the author of the video in question. I was pleasantly surprised to find that my little learning experiment was being linked to by msp430 related sites In the video I used the TP1 and TP3 connections (if I remember the names correctly, near the USB anyway) on the launchpad to draw 5V directly from USB. It gives enough juice to do some basic servo testing. For more servos however I had to switch to an external power supply. In the future I hope to build a little robot arm/leg. I'm just not sure about what material to use yet.
