TI LaunchPad
« on: June 26, 2010, 10:23:09 PM »
Texas Instruments came up with this new development platform for their MSP430 micros. They offer it for cheap, at $4.30 including shipping (I got free shipping to Canada) that can get even half price with coupon code HALFMSPTOOL. Yep, I got it for $2.15. Why? I don't know, just for the buzz and to see what good can come up from using it. I guess it's similar with AVR Butterfly but a lot cheaper. Oh, and all the programming stuff it's free too.

You can order it from here:
