This six part training walks through the usage of the MSP430FR5969 LaunchPad. The training explains the working of the demo code that is pre-programmed in the LaunchPad. You will also learn how to setup CCS projects and initialize and use key peripherals in the MSP430FR59xx family of MCUs.
The MSP430 ultra-low-power microcontroller family now includes the MSP430FR4x/FR2x series of MCUs with unmatched flexibility in the form of the industry’s lowest-power software-configurable LCD driver, abundant IO and unified non-volatile FRAM. These easy to use microcontroller series can be evaluated with the low cost MCU development tool, the MSP430FR4133 LaunchPad. Target Socket boards can also be paired with the MSP-FET programmer/debugger for development in a full system.
This 7 Part Series with the MSP430 5xx Experimenters Board will cover the following topics:
- Active and low power mode operation
- Mixed signal application example
- Hardware timers to conserve power
- Implementing a fully optimized ADC12 routine
- MSP430 tools, resources, and conclusions
While the market requires better power performance, it also continuously demands more functionality from devices. The challenge many developers face today is maintaining or improving battery operating life while simultaneously increasing a device’s capabilities. For many devices, it is not feasible to increase battery size or capacity; this means that developers need to achieve higher performance within the same power footprint, if battery life is not to be compromised.
These video series will talk about the different types of motors used in the industry; DC, Brushless DC, Steppers, Permanent Magnet Synchronous, and AC Induction. To gather a better understanding of motors, differences of these motors with advantages and disadvantages of each will be shown. Basic motor drive circuits will be discussed from full H-Bridge drive to half-bridge for 3-phase motors. Other drive concepts such as 6-step commutation along with drive issues such as current recirculation will be discussed. Field Oriented Control will also be discussed and how

This training series details the key features of MSP430 MCUs featuring CapTIvate technology, enabling you to get started on your next great capacitive touch design and get to market more quickly.
As more and more IoT products are being connected to the internet, the security of these devices is becoming increasingly important. A security-focused approach should be taken when building IoT products to protect users’ privacy and block any malicious activity.
This training series covers LEA or Low Energy Accelerator a vector math co-processor, the performance benchmark, and how to get started on the new MSP430FR599x. LEA is capable of performing various signal processing tasks efficiently without any CPU intervention. For example, LEA can perform a 256-point complex FFT in just ~5k cycles whereas a Cortex-M4F would take approximately 17k cycles (3.6x improvement).
This series outlines a number of Embedded Security Fundamentals as well as a portfolio overview for MSP430 and MSP432 microcontrollers. These are just some of the topics covered in this series:

The Internet of Things (IoT) is now part of the smarter grid through the adoption of IPv6 communications networks. These 6LoWPAN-based networks address key concerns such as standards-based interoperability, reliability, low power, and long-distance connectivity.
Non-technical losses (“theft”) account for billions of dollars of revenue loss for utility providers around the world as individuals are able to hack meters to slow or stop the accumulation of energy usage statistics. This loss has driven increased requirements for enhancing the protection designed into new smart meters. This training session will discuss different methods of attacking smart meters and how TI’s analog portfolio can be used to detect or even prevent these attacks. In one scenario magnets are used to saturate any transformers present in the system.
Advanced closed-loop control systems for factory, process, and power automation markets require powerful MCU solutions that can interface to variety of industrial communications protocols. As new features and capabilities are added, these protocols may evolve several times during the lifetime of an industrial product. As a result, system providers can benefit from solutions that flexibly support multiple communications protocols and in-service updates without updating hardware.
