This application report discusses how to design a simple and ultra low-power grip detector BoosterPack for the MSP430 LaunchPadTM. The PINOSC feature in every msp430G2xx2 and msp430G2xx3 device makes it possible to eliminate all the external components when implementing a capacitive touch design. All the components used in the grip detector, such as capacitive sensors, LEDs are all integrated in a BoosterPack, which is completely compatible with the MSP430 LaunchPad interface. And this grip… CONTINUE READING
