For all you guys who are into microcontrollers......TI is trying to take over some lost market shares of Arduino and so on.
You can now order the MSP430 LaunchPad development tool in the TI webshop for only $ 4,30 incl shipment worldwide!!! Check it out at www.ti-estore.com/Merchant2/merchant.mvc?Screen=PROD&Product_Code=MSP-EXP430G2

More specs at the TI Wiki http://processors.wiki.ti.com/index.php/MSP430_LaunchPad_%28MSP-EXP430G2%29

Happy programming..... ;)


I just saw this on fatwallet and bought 2. They're backordered, but should ship early-August. I can't wait... <$5 for chip, mini-dev board, USB interface, and LED's. Nice! I have an arduino kit I bought and haven't put together yet, but this is just too cheap & tempting to pass up.

you can also buy direct from TI at their website (http://focus.ti.com/docs/toolsw/folders/print/msp-exp430g2.html) for $4.30 with free shipping. They're shipping now. I got mine in 2 days.
