This will DEFINITELY take off. This is amazing. Almost exactly what I've been looking for. only a couple lines of code to blink an LED. All i was asking for. You just made the MSP430 a contender against the Arduino. In 2 hours, I have been able to do more with my MSP430 than i have in the last 11 months, despite going through all the tutorials, GRACE, code stealing from the templates, etc. TI should send you a nice fat check. I know i'll be donating, and this is the first piece of software i ever said that about! get a software serial for the USI based controllers (like for the 2231 and F2012), get those pins straight, and then give us a low powered mode calls (like -- powerMode(LMP1) ), and you just revolutionized the whole game.


Sorry, i'm really excited. i just made it spin a servo motor and light up LEDs in under an hour. You have have no idea...just...thank you all who helped.

Thank for the kind words!

You probably already figured out that there is a TimerSerial implementation for devices that do not have hardware serial (USCI). Example is in File->Examples->TimerSerial. As for the low power modes, it is on the TODO list.

Let me tell you how long I have been waiting for someone to do this! The MSP430 is a great chip and the launchpad is a great board! The traditional tool-chain is pretty horrible though, especially for new users! Now we have a great development environment to work with! Finally we have a cheap low power solution with a great IDE right in the hobbyist usability range! Thank you thank you thank you! I'll be excited to watch development continue and this project mature! Keep at it!
