Demonstration
Connect the device USB port on the side of the LaunchPad to a standard computer USB port. Slide the
power select switch to the left to choose power from the USB device port. The LaunchPad with the Sensor
Hub BoosterPack attached enumerates on the USB bus as a composite HID keyboard and mouse. A solid
blue on the RGB LED indicates that the USB is properly enumerated. A quickly blinking red on the RGB
LED indicates that the motion system is operating correctly.
Hold the LaunchPad with the buttons away from the user and toward the computer; the USB device cable
should exit the right and bottom corner of the board. Roll or tilt the LaunchPad to move the mouse cursor
of the computer up, down and left, right. The buttons on the LaunchPad become the left- and right-mouse
click buttons. The buttons on the Sensor Hub BoosterPack are not currently used by this example. A quick
spin of the LaunchPad generates a PAGE_UP or PAGE_DOWN keyboard press and release, depending
on direction of the spin. This action simulates page scrolling. A quick horizontal jerk to the left or right
generates a CTRL+ or CTRL– keyboard event. This action creates a zoom effect in many applications,
most often in web browsers. A quick vertical lift generates an ALT+TAB keyboard event. This action
presents the computer user with an opportunity to select between currently open program windows. A
quick twist to the left or right moves the window selector. A quick jerk in a downward direction selects the
desired window and closes the window selection dialog.

have executed a special agreement specifically governing such use.
Only those TI components which TI has specifically designated as military grade or “enhanced plastic” are designed and intended for use in
military/aerospace applications or environments. Buyer acknowledges and agrees that any military or aerospace use of TI components
which have not been so designated is solely at the Buyer's risk, and that Buyer is solely responsible for compliance with all legal and
regulatory requirements in connection with such use.
TI has specifically designated certain components as meeting ISO/TS16949 requirements, mainly for automotive use. In any case of use of
non-designated products, TI will not be responsible for any failure to meet ISO/TS16949.
