Where are the msp430 development kits? All are obsolete on Mouser and Digikey.

I am at the beginning of a new project, and was considering using the msp430, but I cannot find an eval board or development kit.

Specifically, I am considering using one of the following processors (because i want at least 3 timers):

MSP430G2755
MSP430F5131
MSP430G2855
MSP430F5132
MSP430G2955
MSP430F5151
MSP430F5500
MSP430F5152
MSP430F5304
MSP430F5171
MSP430F5501
MSP430F5232
MSP430F5502
MSP430F5308
MSP430F5237
MSP430F5504
MSP430F5172
MSP430F5503
MSP430F5505

I want to start with a development kit to get the processor reference circuit, and sample code.

The only kits I can find are these 2, but THEY ARE OBSOLETE, and I can't find anything else.

MSP-FET430U38
   Comes with MSP430G2955IDA38R

MSP-FET430U40
   Comes with MSP430F5172IRSB

What happened to all the MSP430 support?

What's going on?

  • The MSP430 Hardware Tools User's Guide (SLAU278) clarifies which target board can be used for a specific MSP430 derivative. All of these target boards can be purchased on the TI eStore and some are available through authorized distributors such as Digi-Key or Mouser. Based on the MSP430 devices provided, you will most likely want the MSP-TS430RGC64USB for MSP430F55xx support or the MSP-TS430RSB40 for MSP430F51xx devices. All reference circuits and sample code are provided online.
