Posted on Tuesday, May 29th, 2012 in MSP430 by DP

The MSProbot is one of the projects The Longhorn Engineer featured at the Bay Area Maker Faire 2012. It’s an MSP430 Launch Pad with tank treads, a prototyping area, and sensor breakouts.

Check out our interview with Parker and see the MSProbot in action.

  • Drone: So these go for around $330 USD and NO published calibration procedure online or otherwise? Given what's inside - I don't think I'll be considering...
  • Pekka Akselin: This is ridiculous!? :-) We are back at 256(!) byte EPROMs that needed multiple, a handful, of voltages to run! :-(
  • KH: Let's try a back-of-envelope calc balancing energies. From MCP1700 datasheet, there are graphs for a 200mA load step. Estimate the energy shortfall as 12uJ. Say...
  • Daniel: It's been a week and my comment is still awaiting moderation. Apparently the CIA doesn't want their involvement known?
  • KH: Agree, so okay, I guess he must have learned from somewhere. 100nF and 1000uF is so far apart, that was jarring; it's more magic incantation...
