The "T" shape of the MSP430-5510 board enables easy breadboarding for development of applications running on the Texas Instruments MSP430F5510 microcontroller.
The MSP430-T5510 board was designed as a platform for EasyMSP and Energia. These projects are under development to create an Arduino-like language and IDE for the MSP430 architecture.
Note: The picture shows this board installed on a solderless breadboard for illustration purposes only. The breadboard is not included. If you need a breadboard, see the Basic Solderless Breadboard.

Add-on UEXT Modules Available This board has a universal extension connector, UEXT, which allows you to add a peripheral module easily. The UEXT can provide I2C, RS232, SPI and power to the external device. Please see the UEXT Boards Category for a full list of modules that can plug into the UEXT port.
Powering the Board The board can be powered via the mini-USB connector, from the JTAG/SBW interface, or through the VIN and +5V pins which will go through your breadboard. It comes pre-loaded with a bootloader and a simple LED and button test.
