The MSP430™ LaunchPad™ development kit now has USB. The MSP-EXP430F5529LP is an inexpensive and simple development kit for the MSP430F5529 USB microcontroller. It offers an easy way to start developing on the MSP430 MCU, with onboard emulation for programming and debugging as well as buttons and LEDs for a simple user interface. Rapid prototyping is simplified by the 40-pin BoosterPack™ plug-in module headers, which support a wide range of available BoosterPack plug-in modules. You can quickly add features like wireless connectivity, graphical displays, environmental sensing, and much more.
You can either design your own BoosterPack plug-in module or choose among many already available from TI and third-party developers. The MSP430F5529 16-bit MCU has 128KB of flash memory, 8KB of RAM, 25-MHz CPU speed, integrated USB, and many peripherals – plenty to get you started in your development. Custom USB functionality can be quickly added using the free open-source USB tools and examples available in the MSP430 USB Developers Package. This includes the MSP430 USB Descriptor Tool, which quickly customizes any combination of USB interfaces and automatically generates your USB descriptors for those interfaces. Free software development tools are also available: TI's Eclipse-based Code Composer Studio™ IDE (CCS) and IAR Embedded Workbench™ IDE (IAR), and the community-driven Energia open-source code editor
USB-enabled MSP430F5529 16-bit MCU – Up to 25-MHz System Clock – 1.8-V to 3.6-V operation – 128KB of flash, 8KB of RAM – Five timers – Up to four serial interfaces (SPI, UART, I 2C) – 12-bit analog-to-digital converter – Analog comparator – Integrated USB, with a complete set of USB tools, libraries, examples, and reference guides
The eZ-FET lite emulator, with the application ("backchannel") UART. (Now open-source!)
Ability to emulate and develop USB applications with a single USB cable, made possible with an onboard USB hub
Power sourced from the USB host. The 5-V bus power is reduced to 3.3 V, using an onboard dc-dc converter.
Both male and female 40-pin BoosterPack plug-in module headers, configured for stacking. 20-pin BoosterPack plug-in modules can also be attached.
