    Anyone received their Launchpad?

    Hi there, Has anyone received their TI launchpad kit (MSP-EXP430G2) yet? I'm still waiting on two of mine. Its hopefully here by next week.
  5. I was planning to get some PCBs done for my Launchpad when they come in. This will also be a good starting point for me to learn schematic PCB design. Does anyone have any suggesstions? I know Eagle is widely used. Is this mostly preferred? Thanks!
  6. Thanks! I'm thinking equalizer.

    Any new updates on this?
  9. o_o nice! One question though - Is the schematic as simple as connecting the VCC, GND, DATA and CLK?

    Hello From Michigan

    Welcome Joe!
  11. Someone was able to connect to the Launchpad using a MAC. If anyone is using a Mac as a development machine, this may be of help: http://processors.wiki.ti.com/index.php ... h_Homebrew

    Quick and dirty 74HC595 shift register demo

    you should be able to. Looks like they do the same thing. 8-bit serial in, parallel out.

    MSP430 tools for linux

    Nice writeup. If you can hook it up to Eclipse, there is no need to learn GDB commands(maybe minimal)... and you get a graphical GUI debugger.

    Gatesphere, did you look at low power RF for the MSP430? Looks like they are based over zigbee. http://focus.ti.com/mcu/docs/mcuorphan. ... ntId=24576
