Design Automation


Peripheral configuration software

8 June 2011 Design Automation

Texas Instruments has developed the Grace software platform, a free visual


plug-in that allows developers to enable and configure low-power MSP430 microcontroller peripherals through a graphical user interface (GUI).

With the new software, developers can interact with buttons, pull-down menus and helpful pop-ups to generate easy-to-understand C code that automatically configures the low-level register settings of analog-to-digital converters, operational amplifiers, timers, serial communication modules, clocks and other peripherals. By simplifying the peripheral configuration process, Grace enables developers to focus on their differentiated application layer and user experience.

As a free Code Composer Studio IDE plug-in, Grace software seamlessly integrates into the MSP430 microcontroller tool chain and development process, compatible with all MSP430G2xx (Value Line) and MSP430F2xx devices, most eZ430 modules and the LaunchPad development kit. Open-source tutorials and project examples are also included. Additionally, Grace software technology is scalable, with the potential to support other TI embedded processing solutions.

The Grace software platform is available for free download at www.ti.com/grace-pr-tf
