MSP430 Puppy

IMG_5529MSP430 Puppy is an open-source development board, built around the MSP430F5510 microcontroller from Texas Instruments. The tiny, bread-board friendly form factor (57.9 x 22.8 mm2) makes it an ideal choice for testing and prototyping. MSP430 Puppy offers 20 GPIOs along with 4 ADCs, brought out on 28 pinheads on the periphery of the device

Development

The MSP430 Puppy was designed and developed by a team of contributors mentored by Prof. Dhananjay V. Gadre at Texas Instruments' Centre for Embedded Product Design (TI-CEPD), Netaji Subhas Institute of Technology, Dwarka, Delhi, India. The product development cycle was spread over a couple of months starting from October 2014. Prof. Gadre and his students intend to promote this low-cost programmer in the upcoming microcontroller trainings across colleges in India and abroad.
