The MSP430F16x Lite Development Board

Module by: adrian valenzuela. E-mail the author

Summary: This module describes the MSP430F16x Lite Development Board.

Overview

This module describes a full-featured development board for the Texas Instruments MSP430F16x series of mixed-signal microprocessors. This hardware system was designed to allow students or engineers to fully exercise and explore the capabilities of the MSP430 microcontroller.

This module is meant to serve as a general technical overview and instruction manual for the development board. The two pictures below show a general block diagram of the development system and a picture of the board that highlights some of the major peripherals.
