Hello, we are using the MSP-EXP430FG4618

Does anyone know if there is any accessories or add on boards that we could use to gain access to the unused pins on the MSP430 ?


I saw the post below and didn't know if there was any other solution available:

    There are RF Daughter Card Connectors on that board.  RF1 gives you access to some pins.  The schematic is available at the end of the user's guide for that board for more options.
  • HI Jason,

    to make sure that I'm understanding right we can use the RF1 and RF2 Ports for access to the additional pins?

    Only thing required is using the EM2 Connectors?

    RF1 will give you access to just the pins identified by those net names.  I don't know which additional pins you want to access.  RF2 doesn't add any extra since it's only power and ground.
