Название: MSP430 Microcontroller Lab Manual Автор: James Kretzschmar, Jeffrey Anderson, Steven F. Barrett Издательство: Springer Серия: Synthesis Lectures on Digital Circuits & Systems Год: 2023 Страниц: 215 Язык: английский Формат: pdf (true) Размер: 10.1 MB
This book is a practical reference for using Texas Instruments MSP430 microcontrollers. It provides a series of hands-on laboratory exercises. The labs may be completed in a traditional laboratory setting or at home using the Digilent Analog Discovery 2 Test Instrument. This book can be used as a reference for planning future projects using the MSP430 microcontroller. The authors focus on applications of the main peripheral modules available on the MSP430 microcontroller – CPU clock, Basic Input/Output, Timer, Analog-to-Digital Converter. They also provide examples of how to develop Pulse Width Modulation signals, and how to use Interrupts.
Texas Instruments is well known for its analog and digital devices, in particular, Digital Signal Processing (DSP) chips. Unknown to many, the company quietly developed its microcontroller division in the early 1990s and started producing a family of controllers aimed mainly for embedded meter applications for power companies, which require an extended operating time without recharging. It was not until the mid-2000s, the company began to put serious efforts to present the MSP430 microcontroller family, its flagship microcontrollers, to the academic community and future engineers. Their efforts have been attracting many educators and students due to the MSP430’s cost and the suitability of the controller for capstone design projects requiring microcontrollers. In addition, Texas Instruments offers a large number of compatible analog and digital devices that can expand the range of the possible embedded applications of the microcontroller.
This manual provides a thorough, practical laboratory introduction to the Texas Instruments MSP430TM microcontroller. The MSP430 is a 16-bit reduced instruction set (RISC) processor that features ultra-low power consumption and integrated digital and analog hardware. Variants of the MSP430 microcontroller have been in production since 1993. This provides for a host of MSP430 products including evaluation boards, compilers, software examples, and documentation. All labs use the Texas Instruments MSP-EXP430G2ET LaunchPad which uses the MSP430G2553 microprocessor. This LaunchPad was introduced in June 2018 and is the replacement for the MSP-EXP430G2 LaunchPad. The labs have been designed to introduce you to the basic functionality of the MSP430G2553 microprocessor. The manual features use of the Digilent Analog Discovery 2. However, other laboratory equipment may be used. The manual is intended for an upper level undergraduate course in microcontrollers or mechatronics but may also be used as a reference for capstone design projects. Also, practicing engineers already familiar with another microcontroller, who require a quick hands-on tutorial on the microcontroller, will find this book very useful.
