Best information for those new to the MSP430?

Recommended Posts

For Energia compiler users, this link is very important, key to most features:  https://github.com/energia/Energia/wiki/Hardware

Also, I forget on here where I found this compiled list of short cheats for energia:

But it is always good to have handy for noobs like me.

As you progress in your development of an embedded system based upon the MSP430, you will eventually have to cut your dependency on your dev board. When you do this, you will have to give your system the ability to be programmed.

 

Whether by JTAG or by Spy-Bi-Wire, you will have to assimilate and understand the information inside this document. Otherwise, you will have a brick coming off the assembly line.

 

Do want to make a million bricks or a million dollars?

 

Knowing this information will save you time, money and prevent ulcers!

Yeah, things have changed after three years.

 

I have noticed that TI changes little things in the filename and then the link breaks.

And yet two more years into the future, many things have changed even more. Personally, I'm finding it very easy to goolge things like "msp430 ADC" and find a working example very quickly. Of course, having morethan 4-5 years hands on experience with microcontrollers, and embedded Linux has not hurt one bit .  .
