In this MSP430 timer PWM tutorial the basic workings of the on board timer peripheral will be explained, along with some C code examples which can be downloadable at the end of the tutorial. Additionally the video below demonstrates the examples ‘A picture paints a thousand words, a video displays a thousand pictures’.
In part 2 of this MSP430 state machine project, I will overview the state machine logic, as well as covering the C programming code.
MSP430 state machine project tutorial demonstrates a simple state machine, with a human interface consisting of 4 buttons, an LCD and some interfacing electronics.
Microcontroller GPIO protection is an essential element of any circuit design.
GPIO ports generally have maximum voltage and current ratings, if these are exceeded it can result in the microcontroller being damaged or completely destroyed.
