MSP-EXP430F5438 Experimenter Board Introduction
The MSP-EXP430F5438 Experimenter Board is an evaluation board meant to evaluate the capabilities of
the MSP430F5438A family of microcontrollers. Built to complement the MSP430's high degree of mixedsignal integration, the Experimenter Board showcases external peripherals such as a dot-matrix LCD, twoaxis accelerometer, microphone, audio output, a serial USB connection, and RF add-ons. Delivered with
an example software project to help firmware designers understand how to program the new peripherals
of the MSP430F5xx family of devices, there is no better way to learn how to use the MSP430F5438A than
with the MSP-EXP430F5438 Experimenter Board. This document details the hardware, its use, and the
example software.

1.3
Tools Requirements
1.3.1 Hardware
An MSP430 Flash Emulation Tool (MSP-FET430UIF) or an equivalent programming tool is required to
download code and debug the MSP430F5438A. The JTAG programmer is connected to the MSPEXP430F5438 Experimenter Board through the JTAG header located in the top center of the board. The
MSP430F5438A utilizes the standard 4-wire JTAG connection. For more details on the installation and
usage of the Flash Emulation Tool, see the MSP430 Hardware Tools User's Guide (SLAU278).
1.3.2 Software
Texas Instruments' Code Composer Studio (CCS) is an MSP430 integrated development environment
(IDE) designed specifically to develop applications and program MSP430 devices. CCS, CCS Core
Edition, and IAR Embedded Workbench can all be used to evaluate the example software for the
Experimenter Board. The compiler limitation of 4 KB prevents IAR KickStart from being able to be used for
the evaluation of the example software.
The example software, titled "User Experience," is available online as MSP-EXP430F5438(A) Example
Software (SLAC227). The User Experience application must be loaded onto the MSP430F5438A that
comes with the kit and is documented in Chapter 5. When compiled and run using an IDE, the APIs that
have been included in the example software can be used to develop unique applications with the
Experimenter Board. The APIs can serve as interfaces to the internal hardware modules of the
MSP430F5438A (for example, ADC12 or UCS) as well as external peripherals and components (for
example, buttons or an LCD). Chapter 3 describes the steps required to compile and run the example
software using Code Composer Studio.

4.3.2 eZ430-RF2500T Interface
The eZ430-RF2500T module can be attached to the MSP-EXP430F5438 Experimenter Board in one of
two ways – through an 18-pin connector (RF3) or a 6-pin connector (RF4). The pins on the eZ430RF2500T headers are multiplexed with the pins on the CC-EM headers allowing the EZ430-RF2500T
module to behave identically to a CC-EM daughterboard. Power must be provided to the EZ430-RF2500T
module by setting the jumper RF PWR. The eZ430-RF2500T connection should always be made with the
antenna facing off of the board. For more information on the connections to the required eZ430-RF2500T,
see the eZ430-RF2500 Development Tool User's Guide (SLAU227), available through www.ti.com/ez430.
4.3.3 USB-UART
The USB interface on the MSP-EXP430F5438 Experimenter Board allows for UART communication with a
PC host and also converts the USB power to 3.3-V power source for the entire board. The USCI module
in the MSP430F5438A (UCA1) supports the UART protocol that is used to communicate with the TI TUSB
chip for data transfer to the PC.
4.4
Two-Axis Accelerometer
The MSP-EXP430F5438 Experimenter Board supports a two-axis or three-axis accelerometer, ADXL322
or ADXL330. Three analog signals, one for each axis X, Y, and Z are connected to input channels one,
two, and three of the MSP430F5438A ADC12 module, respectively. The board is currently populated with
ADXL330. If the user would like to use a two-axis accelerometer, the ADXL330 would need to be removed
and correctly replaced with the ADXL322. No further modifications to the board are required. The
accelerometer is powered through pin P6.0. This interface, especially in conjunction with other on-board
interfaces such as the LCD, enables several potential applications such as g-force measurement or tilt
sensing. For more information on the accelerometer chip, see the manufacturer’s data sheet. [6]
4.5
Analog Signal Chain
The MSP-EXP430F5438 Experimenter Board provides a complete analog signal chain enabling numerous
audio applications such as speech recording, playback, or real-time audio signal analysis.
4.5.1 Audio Input Signal Chain
The MSP-EXP430F5438 audio input chain is based on a noninverting op-amp gain stage positioned
between the microphone and the MSP430F5438A ADC12. The circuit utilizes a Texas Instruments
TLV2760, optimized for low-power operation. The power for the TLV2760 is supplied directly from
MSP430F5438A port pin P6.4, which can be turned off to remove power consumption when the TLV2760
is not in use. The op-amp has a cutoff frequency of approximately 4 kHz, which targets typical speech
frequency range. See the MSP-EXP430F5438 schematic (Section 6.3) for the op-amp circuit.
The microphone is connected to the MSP430F5438A ADC12 input channel five via an analog filter circuit.
The microphone is enabled or disabled via the same MSP430F5438A port pin as the TLV2760, P6.4.

4.5.2 Audio Output Signal Chain
The MSP430F5438A generates a high-frequency PWM signal to emulate the functionality of a DAC. The
duty cycle of the PWM is derived from the ratio between the emulated voltage and the rail of 3.3 V. This
PWM output signal is filtered heavily to emulate a constant voltage value. This output is then connected to
a Texas Instruments TPA301 audio amplifier.
The audio output circuit utilizes the audio amplifier to amplify the filtered output signal from the PWM and
feed the amplified signal into the audio output jack. The amplification is sufficient to support non-amplified
headphones as well as amplified speakers. For more information on the TPA301, see the device data
sheet (SLOS208).

Example Software – User Experience
5.1
User Experience
This section describes the example software that shows various functions of the MSP-EXP430F5438
Experimenter Board. To begin evaluation of the User Experience example software, make sure that the
MSP430F5438A is correctly oriented in the socket before connecting power to the experimenter board.
Pin 1 should be located at the top-left corner of the socket and aligned with the small arrow that is visible
on the socket (see Figure 1-1).
After the device has been programmed with the example software and the board is supplied with power,
the LCD should load the splash screen displaying the TI logo. Pressing the center direction on the joystick
(push down) starts the normal operation of the board.
5.2
Main Menu
The main menu displays a list of applications and settings that users can choose from. Additionally, the
menu also displays time and battery voltage on the LCD screen. Navigation in this menu can be done with
the joystick (up, down, center to select) and/or the push buttons (S1 to exit, S2 to select/enter). Each
application in the menu is described in the following sections.
In this screen, if there is no action from user within 10 seconds, the board goes into standby mode. By
default, the board returns to active mode if any button is pressed or the board is tilted.
5.2.1 Clock
Select this option from the main menu to display an analog clock. After 10 seconds, the backlight is
disabled to conserve power.
Press center on the joystick to return to the main menu.
5.2.2 UniBall
UniBall is an accelerometer demonstration in which the user can control the movements of a ball on the
LCD screen by tilting the board. The LCD initially loads the TI logo as the background, and the ball
appears as the dot on the TI logo. The user can tilt the board to move the ball and erase the TI logo in the
process. The TI logo is reset periodically.
Press center on the joystick to return to the main menu.
5.2.3 USB-UART
This application displays a UART terminal to communicate with a host PC via USB cable at 57600 bps.
Users can type in a terminal window to send characters to the LCD screen of the MSP-EXP430F5438
board. The board also sends characters to the PC if there are any actions on the joystick or the push
buttons. Make sure jumpers JP5 (USB TX/RX) are set horizontally to properly communicate with the PC
terminal.
Press center on the joystick to return to the main menu.
Advanced Debugging Tip: When jumpers J5 are connected vertically, the UART connections become an
echo for both the MSP430 and the terminal window.

Frequently Asked Questions, References, and Schematics
6.1
Frequently Asked Questions
1. Which devices can be programmed with the Experimenter Board?
The MSP-EXP430F5438 board is designed specifically to demonstrate the MSP40F5438IPZ and the
MSP430F5436IPZ silicon. Future MSP430 devices may be released which are also supported.
2. The MSP430F5438A is no longer accessible via JTAG. is something wrong with the device?
Verify that the jumpers are configured correctly. See Chapter 4 for jumper configuration.
Verify that the target device is powered properly.
If the target is powered locally, verify that the supplied VCC is sufficient to power the board. Check the
device data sheet for the specification.
3. I did every step in the previous question but still could not use or communicate with the device.
In the case that you are using the REV_02, check if you are using the test version of silicon, the
XMS430F5438. Improper programming of the device could lead to a JTAG total lockup condition. The
cause of this problem might be an incorrect device selection when creating a new project in CCS
(selecting XMS430F5438 instead of MSP430F5438) or programming the device without a stable power
source (low battery, switching the Power Selector while programming or absence of the MSP430
power jumper JP1 during programming).
Regardless of the revision of silicon, completely reset the device, first unplug all power sources and
connections (JTAG and USB cables). Set the Power Selector Switch to FET mode. Use a jumper cable
to briefly short one of the GND test points with the 430 PWR test point. The device should now be
released from the lockup state.
4. Does the Experimenter Board protect against blowing the JTAG fuse of the target device?
No. Fuse blow capability is included in all Flash-based MSP430 devices to protect the user's
intellectual property. Care must be taken to avoid enabling of the fuse blow option during
programming, as that would prevent further access to the MSP430 device via JTAG.
5. I am measuring system current in the range of 30 mA. Is this normal?
The LCD and the LCD backlight require a large amount of current (approximately 20 mA to 25 mA) to
operate. This results in a total system current consumption in the range of 30 mA. If the LCD backlight
is on, 30 mA is considered normal.
To make sure that the board is operating as expected, disable the LCD and the LCD backlight and
measure the current again. The entire board current consumption should not exceed 10 mA in this
state. Note that the current consumption of the board could vary greatly depending on the optimization
of the board configurations and the applications.
The expected current consumption for the MSP430F5438A in standby mode (LPM3), for example, is
approximately 2 µA. Operating at 1 MHz, the total current consumption should not exceed
approximately 280 µA.
6. The battery option for the Power Selector Switch does not seem to supply enough current for
the Experimenter Board.
The LCD and the LCD backlight require large amount of current to operate. Prolonged operation with
the LCD enabled could drain the batteries at a fast rate. Replace the batteries if the battery voltage
measured drops significantly.

7. I have trouble reading the LCD clearly. Why is the LCD contrast setting so low?
The LCD contrast is highly dependent on the voltage of the system. Changing power source from USB
(3.3 V) to batteries (approximately 3 V) can greatly reduce the contrast. Fortunately, the LCD driver
supports adjustable contrast. The specific instruction can be found in the LCD user's guide. The MSPEXP430F5438 software driver also provides the function call halLcdSetContrast() to adjust the contrast
in software.
8. When I run the example code, nothing happens on the LCD.
Possible sources of error include:
• Make sure that the SYS PWR jumper (JP2) and the 14-pin JTAG cable are properly connected.
• The contrast settings differ from board to board. Try switching between the different power
connections (FET, USB, and BATT) to see if the contrast looks better. The example software also
allows you to increase or decrease the contrast settings.
• Revision 0-03 of the MSP-EXP430F5438 board is incompatible with revision 0-02 (distributed in
limited quantities for the Advanced Technical Conference 2008). The revision number can be found
on the back of the experimenter board. In Revision 0-03, P8.7 is grounded to differentiate this
revision from previous revisions of the board, and the example software uses the internal pullup
resistor on P8.7 to check this pin for compatibility with the software version. If the software and
hardware do not match, the code never exits a while(1) loop at the beginning of the
UserExperience() function of UserExperience.c.
9. What is the correct orientation of the part in the socket?
Pin 1, denoted by a single small indented circle on the device package, must align with the arrow on
the socket.
10. When I compile the code, I get the following error: could not open source file ..\MSPEXP430F5438 HAL\hal_MSP-EXP430F5438.h.
The length of the file path that Eclipse can accept is limited. Move the project higher in your directory
structure (closer to the root directory of the drive) and the project should compile without error.

minimize the risk of electrical shock hazard.
Since the EVM is not a completed product, it may not meet all applicable regulatory and safety compliance standards (such as UL,
CSA, VDE, CE, RoHS and WEEE) which may normally be associated with similar items. You assume full responsibility to determine
and/or assure compliance with any such standards and related certifications as may be applicable. You will employ reasonable
safeguards to ensure that your use of the EVM will not result in any property damage, injury or death, even if the EVM should fail to
perform as described or expected.
You will take care of proper disposal and recycling of the EVM’s electronic components and packing materials.
Certain Instructions. It is important to operate this EVM within TI’s recommended specifications and environmental considerations per the
user guidelines. Exceeding the specified EVM ratings (including but not limited to input and output voltage, current, power, and
environmental ranges) may cause property damage, personal injury or death. If there are questions concerning these ratings please contact
a TI field representative prior to connecting interface electronics including input power and intended loads. Any loads applied outside of the
specified output range may result in unintended and/or inaccurate operation and/or possible permanent damage to the EVM and/or
interface electronics. Please consult the EVM User's Guide prior to connecting any load to the EVM output. If there is uncertainty as to the
load specification, please contact a TI field representative. During normal operation, some circuit components may have case temperatures
greater than 60°C as long as the input and output are maintained at a normal ambient operating temperature. These components include
but are not limited to linear regulators, switching transistors, pass transistors, and current sense resistors which can be identified using the
EVM schematic located in the EVM User's Guide. When placing measurement probes near these devices during normal operation, please
be aware that these devices may be very warm to the touch. As with all electronic evaluation tools, only qualified personnel knowledgeable
in electronic measurement and diagnostics normally found in development environments should use these EVMs.
Agreement to Defend, Indemnify and Hold Harmless. You agree to defend, indemnify and hold TI, its licensors and their representatives
harmless from and against any and all claims, damages, losses, expenses, costs and liabilities (collectively, "Claims") arising out of or in
connection with any use of the EVM that is not in accordance with the terms of the agreement. This obligation shall apply whether Claims
arise under law of tort or contract or any other legal theory, and even if the EVM fails to perform as described or expected.
Safety-Critical or Life-Critical Applications. If you intend to evaluate the components for possible use in safety critical applications (such
as life support) where a failure of the TI product would reasonably be expected to cause severe personal injury or death, such as devices
which are classified as FDA Class III or similar classification, then you must specifically notify TI of such intent and enter into a separate
Assurance and Indemnity Agreement.

IMPORTANT NOTICE
Texas Instruments Incorporated and its subsidiaries (TI) reserve the right to make corrections, enhancements, improvements and other
changes to its semiconductor products and services per JESD46, latest issue, and to discontinue any product or service per JESD48, latest
issue. Buyers should obtain the latest relevant information before placing orders and should verify that such information is current and
complete. All semiconductor products (also referred to herein as “components”) are sold subject to TI’s terms and conditions of sale
supplied at the time of order acknowledgment.
TI warrants performance of its components to the specifications applicable at the time of sale, in accordance with the warranty in TI’s terms
and conditions of sale of semiconductor products. Testing and other quality control techniques are used to the extent TI deems necessary
to support this warranty. Except where mandated by applicable law, testing of all parameters of each component is not necessarily
performed.
TI assumes no liability for applications assistance or the design of Buyers’ products. Buyers are responsible for their products and
applications using TI components. To minimize the risks associated with Buyers’ products and applications, Buyers should provide
adequate design and operating safeguards.
TI does not warrant or represent that any license, either express or implied, is granted under any patent right, copyright, mask work right, or
other intellectual property right relating to any combination, machine, or process in which TI components or services are used. Information
published by TI regarding third-party products or services does not constitute a license to use such products or services or a warranty or
endorsement thereof. Use of such information may require a license from a third party under the patents or other intellectual property of the
third party, or a license from TI under the patents or other intellectual property of TI.
Reproduction of significant portions of TI information in TI data books or data sheets is permissible only if reproduction is without alteration
and is accompanied by all associated warranties, conditions, limitations, and notices. TI is not responsible or liable for such altered
documentation. Information of third parties may be subject to additional restrictions.
Resale of TI components or services with statements different from or beyond the parameters stated by TI for that component or service
voids all express and any implied warranties for the associated TI component or service and is an unfair and deceptive business practice.
TI is not responsible or liable for any such statements.
Buyer acknowledges and agrees that it is solely responsible for compliance with all legal, regulatory and safety-related requirements
concerning its products, and any use of TI components in its applications, notwithstanding any applications-related information or support
that may be provided by TI. Buyer represents and agrees that it has all the necessary expertise to create and implement safeguards which
anticipate dangerous consequences of failures, monitor failures and their consequences, lessen the likelihood of failures that might cause
harm and take appropriate remedial actions. Buyer will fully indemnify TI and its representatives against any damages arising out of the use
of any TI components in safety-critical applications.
In some cases, TI components may be promoted specifically to facilitate safety-related applications. With such components, TI’s goal is to
help enable customers to design and create their own end-product solutions that meet applicable functional safety standards and
requirements. Nonetheless, such components are subject to these terms.
No TI components are authorized for use in FDA Class III (or similar life-critical medical equipment) unless authorized officers of the parties
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.
