We are having some trouble determining which EVM to use for our project. What we need is the MSP430, the ability to take in 18 digital inputs, and the ability to drive a 4 phase stepper motor controller that will drive the motor. The EVM would ideally have an external power supply, and be able to be programmed through JTAG using the Code Composer Studio program. For the project we also need a stepper motor/controller. Do you have any suggestions as to what EVM to choose?
Have you had a chance to look at this post?
It really is going to depend on what you are going to be using the kit for. We have some good suggestions with the Applications page: http://www.ti.com/apps/docs/appshomepage.tsp?DCMP=TIHeaderTracking&HQS=Other+OT+hdr_a_apps
Else I would suggest this one:https://estore.ti.com/MSP-EXP430G2-MSP430-LaunchPad-Value-Line-Development-kit-P2031.aspx
I personally think you've done your research and should proceed, but just to be sure, I'm reccomending posting this thread to the MSP430 forum to see if we can get peer review!
I've moved your thread to that forum and we should see what review comes back.
In the mean time should you want to progress, we offer students a 25% discount on all tools and free Code Composer Studio evaluation.
