TI 430BOOST-SENSE1 BoosterPack for LaunchPad
The Texas Instruments 430BOOST-SENSE1 MSP430 Capacitive Touch BoosterPack is a plug-in daughter card board for LaunchPad. This TI MSP430 Capacitive Touch Booster Pack for LaunchPad features several capacitive touch elements, including a scroll wheel, button, and proximity sensor. Also on-board this TI BoosterPack are 9 LEDs that provide instant feedback as users interact with the capacitive touch elements. A timer-based UART enables communication to a PC for feedback via GUI or hyperterminal. This BoosterPack also includes a pre-programmed MSP430G2452IN20 MSP430 Value Line microcontroller. When paired with the LaunchPad kit, the TI 430BOOST-SENSE1 Capacitive Touch BoosterPack provides a complete hardware and software reference design to enable developers to quickly and easily replace any physical button with a capacitive touch element. This is the simplest, most cost effective solution for adding capacitive touch differentiation in many applications, such as consumer electronics, point of sales machines and other devices with a physical button. LaunchPad is an easy-to-use development tool intended for beginners and experienced users alike for creating MPS430 MCU-based applications.
