The MSP430 LCD KIT-C provides a solution about the hardware and software to drive a segment glass LCD using the MSP430F413 microcontroller. On this board, a glass LCD with quadruplex backplane has been interfaced with the MCU. MSP430F413 is a ultra low-power MCU based on the MSP430 core targeting low-cost applications. Let't start a low-power project using The MSP430 LCD KIT-C.
PL2303 USB-UART converter cuircuit.
L1117-3.3V Positive Voltage Regulator.
DS18B20 temp sensor interface.
Segment LCD display.
All IOs taken out.
Jtag programmer/debugger Interface.
How can i upload the firmware (.txt)file without an external programmer?
This bootstrap loader provides a method to program the flash memory during MSP430 project development and updates. It can be activated by a utility that sends commands using the UART protocol.
The PL2303 circuit can enable the board into BSL mode by which you can program the board easily without an external programmer.(see the following 4 easy steps).
