NOTES: - When you download the 'setup' file, you may notice that the ".exe" portion of the filename has been removed. If this happens, simply rename the file,
and append ".exe" to the end of the filename so you can run the installer. This is an issue with our server which we hope to resolve soon.
- If you are using an older device (without Driver Library support), we suggest that you read/watch
the chapter discussions in this workshop, but refer to the labs and solutions found in the 'G2553 Value-Line Launchpad Workshop

Running The Labs

Most of these sections includes an in-depth lab that will step you through the usage, programming and testing of the peripheral(s) or tool(s) covered.

To run the labs, you will need the following:

  • A Windows 7 or later computer with 1.5GB or more free hard drive space
  • Download and install CCS v6.0
    • Including MSP430ware
  • Install MSP430Flasher - Please see instructions in the Installation Guide (see link above)
  • The workshop course manual (see link above)
  • The labs and solutions files (see link above)
  • One of the following three Launchpad boards:
  • One female-to-female jumper wire (here’s a pack of them, as an example, from adafruit)
  • If you are using the F5529 USB Launchpad, you will need to use the new MSP-FET for measuring energy usage during the Low Power Optimization lab exercise. We provide them for in-class use.
  • MSP-FET (Flash/FRAM Emulation Tool) supports measurement of energy with the EnergyTrace feature for all MSP430 devices (US $115.00)
