"Colorful" Ideas using MSP430 in LEDs

Other Parts Discussed in Post: MSP430G2201

Looking for inspiration to start on a cool project using the MSP430 microcontroller? Well, one of our community members, Greg Davill, recently built a LED matrix toy. Not only that, but he’s able to program and fit it all onto a small 8x8 bi-color LED matrix package! With his use of the MSP430G2201 microcontroller, only about 0.4 μA are used in sleep mode, outliving the shelf-life of the battery for extreme power conservation. Check out his blog for a quick overview of his project and watch it perform colorful tri-color animations that he was able to program with the MSP430G2201!
