10 Beginner MSP430 Tutorials and Counting.

[B]eretta, the blogger from mspsci.blogspot.com has an amazing series for getting started on the MSP430. He starts right from the basics of his hardware setup to software, your first program, timers and then progresses to modules of the MSP. Each blog post comes bundled with source code and the occasional schematic. To make things easier for 430h readers, below is a list of his tutorial series.

An LED BiColor Clock – Geeky!

[K]enneth tries out his hand on the MSP by creating a geeky, yet simple LED clock.

All his code and schematics are on his site.

Create A Simple Launchpad Shield

Create A Simple Launchpad Shield

[K]enneth came up with an amazingly simple idea for creating your own Launchpad Shield – using nothing but a perfboard and a strip of female headers. No more worrying about header spacing.

The Baseboard will have two rows of headers for connecting to the shields and a third programming header to connect to the LaunchPad for programming.
