Grace – Graphical User Interface for Enabling and Configurating MSP430 Peripherals

Speakers for this Event:
  • Adrian Fernandez, MSP430 Microcontroller Product Marketing Engineer, Texas Instruments  Learn More
  • William Goh, MSP430 Development Applications, Texas Instruments  Learn More
  • Grace – Graphical User Interface for Enabling and Configurating MSP430 Peripherals

    This presentation will introduce Grace, a new & free software development tool for MSP430 devices, which invites developers to click on buttons, drop down menus and text fields to generate fully-commented, easy-to-read C code. This enables developers to quicken time to market by accelerating the time needed to enable and configure peripherals for application development.

    In addition, this presentation will provide a live demonstration showing customers how Grace works and how it can make application development more efficient and solutions more robust.

    This software tool benefits microcontroller developers of all experience levels by providing customized view points offering various levels of abstraction from the bits and bytes of programming. After this talk, participants will be fully-armed for starting their next MSP430-based design.
