Hello everyone, I want to buy a couple of prototyping boards (capes?) for the MSP430. What I need is an equivalent to the Arduino prototyping shields, i.e, a PCB which will plug into the Launchpad board with a proto typing area which I can solder components to or put a small plugboard on to. Do they exist and can I purchase them in the UK? Thanks, Steve G0XAR

( not comparing the MSP430 to PIC or AVR but they have software that does just that ) I've downloaded and looked CCS 5.5, IAR 5 and Energia and cant se...

Hi Folks, I am attempting to write/read a Microchip 24FC1025 eeprom using the intrinsic i2c on a Texas Instruments MSP430F5438A chip. This may be a mistake because I got no hits when searching the Microchip forum for msp430 or F5438. Has anyone done this successfully and, if so, what are the pitfalls to watch out for? It is my understanding that this eeprom has two slave addresses...

Hey Folks, Some of you may remember I just had a problem bit-banging an i2c interface to an eeprom, Microchip 24FC1025. That problem remains unsolved, with IAR and myself continuing to work on it, but right now, I am trying to interface with the eeprom using the TI built-in I2C USCIB2. I have been fighting to make a very simple (I thought) TI example titled "MSP430x54x_uscib0_i2...

I've gone back to an older design to upgrade the software. The design uses an MSP430F149. A couple of months ago I upgraded Kickstarter to slac050aq, or version 5.52. It seemed to be OK for the newer micros I was working with, but now it seems to be behaving strangely. It won't revert to compiler mode from debug mode, it crashes. It doesn't seem to recognise or act on most breakpoints, i...
