Quick Start Guide
Meet
the
LaunchPad.
Meet the MSP-EXP430G2 LaunchPad experimenter board. LaunchPad is a complete
USB-based development and experimenter tool providing everything you need to launch
your own MSP430TM Value Line applications.
1.
Software and Driver Installation
Go to www.ti.com/launchpadwiki. Here, you can download free and
unrestricted compilers & debuggers, including:
• Code Composer StudioTM version 4 (CCS)
• IAR Embedded Workbench Kickstart
Both will install the necessary drivers for LaunchPad.
2. Connecting the Hardware
Connect LaunchPad using the included USB cable to a Windowsenabled PC. If prompted, please allow Windows to install the software
automatically.
3. The Demo Application - Internal Temperature Measurement
Embedded, USB-powered
emulation tool
Additional resources @
www.ti.com/launchpadwiki
Integrated DIP target socket
supporting up to 20 pins
On-board programmable
LEDs and pushbuttons
Supports all MSP430 Value
Line and Spy Bi-Wire devices
LaunchPad includes a pre-programmed MSP430G2231 device. Once
connected via USB, the demo will start an LED toggle sequence.
Pressing button P1.3 will start the Temperature Measurement mode.
A reference temperature is measured at the beginning of this mode,
and can be recalibrated with another button press. LaunchPad signals a rising or falling
temperature by varying the brightness of the red or green LED, respectively. Temperature data
is also communicated via back-channel UART through USB to the PC.
4. Launch Your Own Applications
Both CCS and IAR offers full debugging and development capabilities.
Just select the appropriate MSP430G2xx device in your project
setting and start developing your application. Code examples,
development resources, and complete list of compatible devices can
be found at www.ti.com/launchpadwiki.
