MSP430 board guest PCBs

Posted on Thursday, November 29th, 2012 in MSP430, PCBs by DP

Boseji from m8051 gave us these PCBs on the second day of the Bangalore geek tour. We added them to our free PCB drawer.

The QFP package MSP430F5310 is a nice MSP430 chip that can be programmed and debugged using the MSP430 launchpad. They are presently under CC-BY-SA so you can go ahead if you ever need modifications.

Specifically for the Low Cost MSP430G Series – DIP/SMD. They are presently under CC-BY-SA so you can go ahead if you ever need modifications.

    The images are reversed between the two board (the OFN entry in the PCB drawer shows the DIP board).

    What’s “CC-BY-SA”? What where are the schematics for the boards so you know what to put where?

    The board on the Right hand side is the combination of 4 boards:
    The partial schematics of the MSP430F5310 are located here:

    And this is the article featuring this board:

    The other parts includes a GPS module breakout, MMA8453Q accelerometer breakout and TPS780330220 breakout.

    The Board on the Left hand side is a GP board for MSP430G Series microcontroller.
    Both having compatible DIP and SSOP breakouts with som GP area for prototyping,
    On the back side of each you have a tiny TPS780330220 regulator circuit in case you need to power using higher voltages.

    Hope that this is helpful.

    Warm Regards,
