Design and Development of a Low-cost Embedded System Laboratory using TI MSP430 LaunchPad

  title={Design and Development of a Low-cost Embedded System Laboratory using TI MSP430 LaunchPad},
  author={Naveen Kumar Uttarkar and Raghavendra Rao Kanchi},
In this paper, we present a series of experiments starting from Hello World!, up to project-based experiments using Texas Instrument (TI) MSP430 LaunchPad, which is an inexpensive kit from TI, USA. Two dedicated boards are designed and developed to perform experiments described herein, which are an outcome of the author’s experience in teaching computer architecture and embedded systems in theory. These experiments can be introduced to the under-graduate students of engineering: electrical… Expand
