    Is it possible to connect jumpers by removing the chip from the launchpad. Something similar to this. Kindly note that I am using MSP430 for the first time. Thanks

    Awesome tutorial! Just curious, has anyone tried doing multiple chips at the same time with 1 launchpad? I'm guessing one might run into power issues, but I've never tried it.
