Not for nothing but TI has a $0.49 16-bit microcontroler in the MS430 line. It comes in very small packages too (you just ignore the extra pins). -- - Mark -> --

Does anyone know if there is an adapter to program this device with a PICStart Plus? -Robert Scott Ypsilanti, Michigan (Reply through this forum, not by direct e-mail to me, as automatic reply address is fake.)

I wonder if you ever bought MSP430 at this price? Our distributor always charge us more than the budgetary prices on Ti web site. I wonder if this is local case or in the aim to show how cost effective are their products TI anounce these prices without enough margin for their disti chain.

so you need to take your nice 5v supply and use a 555 to create the ac power??? martin Serious error. All shortcuts have disappeared. Screen. Mind. Both are blank.

I heard that someone is working on a chip that runs on solar cells on top. You just need to make sure there are enough lights on it. But again, I could have been dreaming.
