App note: 1-μA capacitive grip detection based on MSP430 Microcontrollers

Saturday, September 12th, 2015

An app note from TI, 1-μA capacitive grip detection based on MSP430 Microcontrollers (PDF!) This application report  discusseshow to design a simple and ultra low-power grip detector Booster Pack for the MSP430 LaunchPad. The PINOSC feature in every msp430G2xx2 and msp430G2xx3 device makes it possible to eliminate all the external...

MSP430 Bootloader by Dylek for value line series (RS232)

Thursday, February 5th, 2015

Daniel Duchna made his own MSP430 Bootloader and wrote a detailed description in his WIKI. It is as simple as usage of any other Bootloader. Firstly you have to flash 'MSP430 Bootloader by Dylek' to MCU. You can do it through 'MSP430 Flasher' provided by Texas Instruments on their WIKI

App note: Interfacing the KXP94 or KXR94 tri-axis accelerometer with the Texas Instruments MSP430F149 microprocessor to measure tilt and other motions

Sunday, September 21st, 2014

Capture motions with Kionix' Tri-Axis Accelerometers and a TI's MSP430F149. App note here (PDF) Kionix linear accelerometers function on the principle of differential capacitance. Acceleration causes displacement of a silicon structure resulting in a change in capacitance. A signal-conditioning CMOS technology ASIC detects and transforms changes in capacitance into an...

Wireless sensor node with MSP430G2553 and 8-pin adapter for NRF24L01+

Thursday, January 2nd, 2014

Tom has designed this Magic Mote wireless sensor, that is available at Github: I set out to design a wireless sensor PCB that could be inexpensively prototyped in quantities of 10. NRF24L01+ modules are exceedingly cheap (~$10 for 10), use very little power, and have sufficient range for most indoor projects. Low power...

Accurate-ish Pneumatic cylinder positioning with flow meter, ATX breakout and MSP430 LaunchPad

Friday, October 18th, 2013

arduinoversusevil writes: We're using the 43oh to control 12V solenoids supplied from a Dangerous Prototypes ATX breakout, and the Adafruit flow meter is feeding back position data to the 43oh. Surprisingly IT WORKS! For more build deets visit the blog Check out the video after the break. (more…)

Dot-Matrix MSP430 alarm clock update

Tuesday, August 27th, 2013

Markus Gritsch posted an update on his Dot-Matrix MSP430 alarm clock we covered previously: Using the ADC is a good suggestion. Thank you! The clock now has an additional state after turning the flashlight off, where it displays the battery voltage in volt. I also added an additional displaying mode where...

Sensorless Brushless DC Motor Drive with MSP430

Wednesday, December 19th, 2012

A booster board for the MSP430 LaunchPad controls brushless DC motors with or without sensors. A bunch of double NPN transistor MBT2222AD ICs drive the motors: I thought that I would share my project on the forum. I call it BLDC Booster. It is a booster pack for the MSP430...

Bitbang USB v1.1 on a MSP430

Friday, December 14th, 2012

M-atthias was successful in running bitbang USB v1.1 on a MSP430G2452. It's similar to the V-USB project that's used on AVRs. It takes ~2kb of room on the microcontroller. Yes, this is similar to the efforts of V-USB for AVR, but in a very early stage. I am in contact...
