GIVEAWAY: MSP430 LaunchPad

Posted on Friday, July 27th, 2012 in contest by DP

Today we announce the recipient of the  MSP430 LaunchPad.  There were lots of great ideas for projects based on the MSP430 LaunchPad, thanks for your submissions.

Chris gets a MSP430 for his open source aquarium automation idea:

I’m busy with some Opens Source Aquarium Automation project (well, the first phase will only be to automatically do some chemical tests) and for that I pondered the PIC18F range, but this would make a very nice part of the automatic tester… Details on the project will be on my blog in a couple of days, for now I’m trying to figure them out myself and doing some sketchup work for it

Thank you for participating, there were a bunch of great ideas. As always feel free to share your projects in the forum.

  • 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...

  • 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...
  • Max: I have a suspicion the hefty electrolytic cap might be some sort of cargo cult carry-over from other RF-based projects - for instance, I've seen...
