Other Parts Discussed in Thread: MSP430I2021, MSP430I2031, MSP430I2041, MSP430F6736, MSP430F6736A, MSP430F6779, MSP430F67791, MSP430F6779A, MSP430F67791A, EVM430-I2040S, EVM430-F6736, EVM430-F6779,

Hello everyone,

We're happy to inform you that the new Energy Measurement Design Center (EMDC) and Software Library is now available on! We've received significant feedback about the legacy Energy Library as well as many requests for CCS support. The new EMDC should be much easier to use and also features CCS support! See the "Getting Started" section below for important links.



This rapid development tool enables energy measurement using TI MSP430i20xx and MSP430F67xx flash-based microcontrollers (MCUs) and includes a graphical user interface (GUI), documentation, software library and examples that can simplify development and accelerate designs in a wide range of power monitoring and energy measurement applications, including smart grid and building automation. Using the Design Center you can configure, calibrate, and view results without writing a single line of code.

You can set up a design in less than five minutes:

  • Drag and drop an MCU, voltage sensors, and current sensors into the GUI workspace.
  • Configure each sensor and the MCU according to your system configuration.
  • The GUI will check for errors before generating the source code.
  • Import the code into an IDE and program the MCU.
  • Easily calibrate the MCU using the GUI and view the results.


  • Supported measurements:
    • Voltage & Current (RMS & Peak)
    • Power & Energy (Active, Reactive, & Apparent)
    • Power Factor
    • Frequency

  • Supported current sensors:
    • Shunt
    • Current transformer (CT)
  • View estimated CPU bandwidth (library only) for supported system configurations
  • Generate source code projects for the Code Composer Studio™ IDE
  • Enables real-time target communication through a USB HID communication bridge featuring:
    • Single-point calibration
      • Gain
      • Phase

    • Real-time results
  • Works with:
    • Windows 7+ operating system with Java version 1.7+
    • Apple OS X 10.10.1+ with Java version 1.7+
    • Linux OS with Java version 1.7+
