Topic: Arduino as an ISP for Texas Instruments Microcontroller? (Read 1 time) previous topic - next topic

In a nutshell, what do you think these MSP430s do that AVR does not?  I see there are a bunch of options on Digikey but mostly they have the same peripherals, similar number of pins, similar amounts of flash and RAM, very slightly better clock speeds (up to 25Mhz instead of 20Mhz) than tiny/mega AVR (not including XMEGA AVR which compares even better than plain AVR at 32Mhz and additional peripherals such as DAC).  I get they are 16 bit, but does that often matter?  Anyway, what is the draw?

I have only come here seeking knowledge. Things they would not teach me of in college.

I can get the TI chips for free.

I guess I may just invest in a LaunchPad and use Energia. The $10 isn't too bad, it's the 2-4 week backorder that had me searching.

TI will sample to almost anybody.   :smiley-mr-green:  I just got some programmable gain amplifiers to test out on an idea that I have.  I prefer samples when I have no idea what the hell I am doing and am at my most likely to fry something.

I downloaded above Energia IDE . It worked similar to arduino only we need to make changes in library and port naming.
The wire library didn't worked. Wire liberary works fine unless sda and scl  pins are connected . Once pins are removed MSP gets hangs. I would like to is it normal behavior with MSP kits or not.
