MicroTRAK Development Platform with MSP430F5473, Keypad, LCD US$269.00

MicroTRAK Development Platform with MSP430F5473, Keypad, LCD

The purpose of the MSP430 Training Lab is to familiarize the student with developing practical applications using the Texas Instruments MSP430F5437 microcontroller. This kit includes training manuals and a lab book with over 70 example projects.

You also can switch to other microcontroller architectures inexpensively through the modular MicroTRAK system.

MicroTRAK Overview

Whether developing a new project with or learning about microcontrollers, you will find MicroTRAK a highly versatile training system with support for microcontroller systems such as 8051, AVR, ARM, MSP430, PIC, Basic Stamp, and others.

MicroTRAK supports an array of peripheral boards and includes practical examples for C, BASIC and Assembly Language Programming, Keypad and LCD interfacing, I2C bus, Serial port programming, Motor control, Analog-to-Digital Conversion and many other fun and instructive projects.

MicroTRAK serves not only as a training kit but also as a rapid project development tool. Select a microcontroller board for the microcontroller family that you are familiar with, download software development tools, plug the peripheral boards and/or display/keypad for your project to the MicroTRAK carrier board, and you are near a tangible proof-of-concept for your project.

Retain your initial investment in your training kit when moving to a different microcontroller family. Simply change the microcontroller board and the optional I/O Module. All cables, carrier board, power supply, peripheral boards, keypad, LCD, etc. remain the same.
