what is usbserial library in Energia??

Recommended Posts

I've noticed a library called usbserial in energia ,which I haven't found in arduino. What is this library all about??

Does this library allows us to communicate our msp430 to the computer directly through usb??

If you guy's worked with this library please tell me what it is........

Certain MSP430 products have a built in USB peripheral such as the F5529 mentioned above. The USBSerial library exists to allow you to use this USB port as a serial port back to the host PC where the USB device should be detected as a USB-Serial adapter.


Its rather similar to the leonardo which also has a USB port setup as a serial port.


Its essentially an alternative to the older system of having another chip on the board performing USB-Serial functionality, such as an FTDI on older arduinos.
