TI-RSLK MAX Module - 1 Running code on the LaunchPad using CCS

The purpose of this module is to learn software development methodology and understand how to set up an Integrated Development Environment (IDE), to then import and export Code Composer Studio (CCS) projects, as well as critical debugging information to understand the memory usage and performance of the software on the processor.

TI-RSLK MAX Module 2 – Voltage, current, and power

The purpose of this course is to review basic electronic components and the electrical properties needed to interface sensors and actuators to a microcontroller. You will learn how to measure reactance of a capacitor and use your project to measure current and voltage. The electrical properties of the capacitor will help you design circuits that “filter” or remove noise from your robot.

TI-RSLK MAX Module 3 – ARM Cortex M

This module serves as a brief introduction to the ARM Cortex-M microcontroller, assembly programming language and some debugging techniques. Understanding how the processor works is essential for the design of embedded systems, such as the one used in your robot.  

TI-RSLK MAX Module 4 – Software design using MSP432

This module is an introduction to C, a general-purpose programming language, in addition to the concepts of compiling and debugging using the MSP432 and TI Code Composer Studio™.  Debugging skills are a valuable tool when developing complex systems involved with robotics.

TI-RSLK MAX Module 5 – Building the robot

In this module, you will create the robot. You will then be able to measure the voltage, current and energy for a battery while managing voltage regulation. This will allow you to build the circuits needed to power the robot.


In this module, you will interface a line sensor (infra-red sensor) to the microcontroller and learn how to write software to initialize GPIO pins.  The line sensor is a simple and accurate sensor for solving robotic challenges.

TI-RSLK MAX Module 7 – Finite state machines

This module will demonstrate how to use finite state machines as a central controller for the system. Finite state machines are an effective design process to have in your embedded system tool box and can be used to solve problems with inputs and outputs.

TI-RSLK MAX Module 8 – Interfacing input and output

The purpose of this module is to develop interface switches and an LED so the robot can effectively detect wall collisions. Many sensors and actuators deploy LEDs, so understanding how they operate will be important to building your robot.

TI-RSLK MAX Module 9 – SysTick timer

In this module, you will learn the fundamentals of SysTick timers and pulse width modulators (PWM), including how to measure pulse times and period with a logic analyzer and amplitude with an oscilloscope. It is important to understand the concept of PWM as we will use it to adjust power to the motors.

TI-RSLK MAX Module 10 – Debugging real-time systems-interrupts

This module provides an intro to how flash memory operates, including debugging techniques for real-time systems and how to generate periodic interrupts using SysTick. Minimally intrusive debugging is essential for real-time systems to evaluate performance while the system runs in real-life situations.
