Welcome to MSP430.info!

This site is dedicated to the people developing with and for the MSP430, a microcontroller line from Texas Instruments.

Here you can find info on development tools including hardware and software tools. There is also a section for papers on MSP430 related issues as well as links to other sites containing info on MSP430 microcontrollers.

A moderated forum is available which is open to all registered users. Users may also submitt their own papers, news articels, links and suggest links and downloads.

In the pipe is a 'Getting started' tutorial that will help you to get your hands on MSP430 and start developing. A project that heavily relies on users input is the 'Code Snippets Box' which will contain several example code snippets that help you getting your application done.

Last but not least you can find or post job openings in the job forum. This may also be the ideal place to find people interested in cooperating in commercial and non-commercial projects.

So far this page is moderated by me, Jean Randhahn. If you like you can find out more about me.
