LaunchPad shipping with MSP430G2553

Started by Jim December 6, 2011
I ordered another LaunchPad from TI on Nov 29 and was pleasantly suprised when it arrived on Dec 2, populated with a 20-pin PDIP MSP430G2553, and a spare MSP430G2452. The G2553 has 16K FLASH, 512 Bytes SRAM, 2 16-bit timers, USCI_A (UART/IrDA/SPI), USCI_B(SPI/I2C), 8 Comparators, Temp Sensor, and 8-chan 10-bit SAR ADC. In other words, enough FLASH, RAM & peripherals to get into some fairly complex projects!

I had bought a couple of LaunchPads, about a year ago, which came with the MSP430G2231/G2211 chips. These were very limiting in capability, so, as soon as I found out the G2553 was available, I ordered samples to populate both of the original LaunchPads. I have used them to play around with CCS and GRACE, learning to configure the peripherals and to develop sw algorithms and routines. This is directly compatible with and transferrable to a larger MSP430F2618, on which I am developing an application that is far beyond the capabilities of the LaunchPad.

I just thought others might be interested in knowing that the new LaunchPads are shipping with much higher capacity chips!

Where did you order from? Digikey? Newark?

What's the price of this Launchpad populated with MSP430G2553?  I've designed a forth assembler/compiler/decompiler+tinyForth which can play with it. It's fun and joyable.

Digi-Key has the chips in stock, but they aren't available from any UK
suppliers yet. I might order a couple of samples for my Launchpads.

Another interesting feature is the touch sensor inputs.

I requested samples of the MSP430G2553 chips, directly from TI, earlier this
year and was shipped two of them, free.

I ordered the LaunchPad directly from TI. Price is $4.30, and shipping is free (in US, that is, don't know about elsewhere).
