The MSP-EXP430FR2433 LaunchPad™ development kit is a member of the MSP430™ Value Line Sensing MCU family. The LaunchPad kit provides a quick evaluation and prototyping tool for the MSP430FR2433 microcontroller (MCU). This series provides an overview of the LaunchPad kit’s features and the out-of-box temperature sensing demo.
Simple functions such as timer replacement, input/output expanders, system reset controllers and stand-alone EEPROM are common on PCBs. Low-cost, ultra-low-power MSP430™ value line microcontrollers (MCUs) offer cost savings when replacing digital and analog functions in a system. Watch this series to see how MSP430 MCUs can be used to enhance communication, pulse width modulation, systems and housekeeping, and timer functions in your next design.
Managing heat dissipation has always been a critical concern for any power supply designer, and this concern has only grown in importance as output current levels have increased while IC package sizes have gotten smaller. This page serves as your ultimate resource for all training materials and technical documentation related to keeping your switching regulator running cool.
There are numerous ways to address thermals. This library of training content is broken out by some of these key approaches to improving the thermal performance of your switching regulator.
The TI-RSLK is a low-cost robotics kit and classroom curriculum which provides students with a deeper understanding of how electronic system designs work. Developed with university faculty, Jon Valvano of UT Austin, the TI-RSLK is designed to supplement university curriculum.

PT100/500/1000 Resistance Temperature Detectors (RTDs) are widely used in grid infrastructure and factory automation applications where high precision temperature measurement is often required. Technical requirements include either 20 mK precise Differential Temperature Measurement (DTM) for heat and cold meters from 0 to 180°C or better than 400 mK precision over the full range of -200 to 850°C for industrial sensor transmitters.
As switching converters have evolved, they have taken on a host of new features to operate more efficiently and quietly. To some, however, all these new features listed on the front page of the datasheet may seem foreign. This training series dives into those features to explain the true benefits of each and help you decide which are necessary for your power supply design. Specifically covered in this series are the buck converter topics of:
The LVDS training series is designed for learning the fundamentals of Low Voltage Differential Signalling technology. It begins with an overview of LVDS technology, and then expands on the advantages of using LVDS such as noise immunity, EMI reduction, low power, and etc. Next, M-LVDS and communication typologies commonly used with LVDS/M-LVDS Interface are explained. Typical use case of LVDS interface and how to calculate LVDS data rate are presented in this training series as well.
