    MSP430 Development Tools

     

    Gill Instruments offers a complete development tool solution for Embedded System LAB Based on MSP430 microcontroller family produced by Texas Instruments Corporation.
    MSP430 is a single chip solution for real world signals. As we know that signals will always be continue to be analog in nature and processing is going to be more and more in Digital.Think analog Act Digital!

    MSP430 is build around advanced orthogonal 16 bit RISC processor core along with intelligent analog and digital peripherals which can communicate with each other without any intervention of CPU. This will really help us to develop portable or wearable applications that have more functionality but still have 10+ years of battery life, Permanent Batteries or no batteries at all for energy harvesting systems that run off of solar power, vibration energy or Body temperature.

    Gill Instruments has been working with Texas Instruments form several years to develop an ideal Evaluation Tools and Reference Designs for Industries and universities to evaluate design and Build new application on MSP430 with no time.
