MSP430 PC GUI evaluation tool


Nathan Zimmerman has developed this PC GUI evaluation tool for the MSP430. Coded in VC++, the GUI allows control of all the peripherals on a MSP430 controller. He’s currently testing it using the MSP430G2553.

This GUI would be very handy to have from a hardware/software test debug standpoint. For example, say I wanted to test out some SPI sensor I purchased, I could use a GUI such as this to send custom SPI packets to the device I’m testing and read/observe results live. That as opposed to having to write a micro.c file to do the communication and re write it every time something doesn’t work.
