This is a project created by students in a Basic Circuit Theory course at the University of North Florida during Summer 2010. The students were tasked with using a Texas Instruments MSP430 microcontroller along with an analog sensor of their choice to create an embedded system. These students decided to use a resistive force sensor fed into a unity gain buffer and then to the ADC of the msp430. A simple program was created in C that allows the students to show a force in grams on an LCD display when pressure is applied to the sensor.
