MSP-EXP430G2 I2C Master Examples

Last week, I mentioned that in order for the I2C bus to function correctly when using the MSP430 Launchpad you might need to remove the jumper on P1.6. This is because P1.6 is the SCL pin and the connected LED may cause the output voltage to stray from the desired logic voltage levels. In this post, I will show a couple of examples of using the MSP430 Launchpad as an I2C master to communicate with slave devices. The library code can be downloaded towards the end.

Interfacing DS7505

The DS7505 digital thermometer and thermostat is a very versatile temperature sensor. It offers 9 to 12-bit digital temperature readings between -55 and +125 Celsius with an accuracy of 0.5 degree. It can be used with any MCUs that has I2C support or can be pre-programmed and used in standalone applications as digital thermostats. Continue reading ‘Interfacing DS7505’ »
