MSP430 Board

The F5132EX experimenter board allows you to proto-type and test your design ideas. It is based on an MSP430F5132 micro-controller from Texas Instruments. A large (4.5" by 3") proto-typing area can accommodate various surface mount  and through-hole components. Need a larger memory for big programs?  The F5137EX upgrade increases the flash memory size to 32KB and the SRAM to 2KB .
