TI worked in conjunction with CircuitCo to design an affordable, easy-to-use and highly-integrated BoosterPack for MSP430 LaunchPad users! CircuitCo knocked it out of the park with this brand new BoosterPack, which has been dubbed the "Educational BoosterPack". It's available today for order at Digikey for just $24.95.
It's a great first BoosterPack for MSP430 LaunchPad users who are looking to create innovative solutions and projects. The BoosterPack is highly integrated with the following components:
- Back-lit Character LCD Display
- Dial analog potentiometer
- 3-Axis analog accelerometer
- RGB LED
Also, this Educational BoosterPack was created with Energia in mind! Energia is a great open-source code editing tool/compiler that the online community has developed! It comes with very intuitive APIs and function calls for reading analog signals, sending and receiving serial communication, toggling I/O & more to help make microcontroller development even easier. So be sure to download this awesome software at www.energia.nu to get up and running on this new BoosterPack quickly!
