Multiple Time Bases on a Single MSP430 Timer Module

On dangerousprototypes.com, they refer to an other interesting TI app-note which describes how to use multiple time bases on a single MSP430 module: However, in some applications, multiple time bases are needed to generate multiple output frequencies. Normally this is done using multiple timer modules, but this might require upgrading to a part with many […]

HOWTO: MSP430G2553 Hardware UART

I made a small example showing how to use hardware UART through USCI_A on the TI Launchpad with a MSP430G2553 MCU. Receiving is done through interrupts. Got to the HOWTO page Get the code at github Note: If you have an MSP430 MCU which does not support hardware UART (e.g. the MSP430G2231), have a look […]

HOWTO: MSP430G2231 Software UART

Update: I made a second example based on the one TI has in it’s examples. It is based on Timer_A for RX and TX. You can find that example in the “timer-a-uart” branch. This example shows how to use software UART on the TI Launchpad with a MSP430G2231 MCU (which does NOT have a hardware […]
