This is a basic introduction to programming the MSP430 microcontrollers from Texas Instruments using the GCC toolchain.

Topics

  • What is a microcontroller?
    • How is the memory laid out?
    • What is a Register?
  • Installing the GCC toolchain.
  • Using GPIOs.
  • Using interrupts.
  • Using a timer (probably the digitally controlled oscillator).
  • Debugging (step your code on the microcontroller).

Materials

  • MSP430 launchpad, provided ($4.30).
  • A Linux or Windows PC, bring your own.
