4/30 promotion

Post by Philba » Thu Apr 30, 2009 12:23 pm

Hey, TI is offering fantastic discounts on their MSP430 development tools. It looks like 50% off. That's an awesome bargain. I've got their zigbee dev stuff on order. Here's the order page.
http://www.ti-estore.com/merchant2/merc ... y_Code=MCU


Add the code 430ROCKS during checkout to get the discount. Apparently it applies to only one product but it's still a deal. It's also only for today...

edit: hmmm, sorry that the url code thing doesn't work. use copy/paste

The copy and paste doesn't work.

Sweet! Ordered a EZ430-RF2500.

Shipping to Canada still sucks, but that's always a given. At least it's FedEx.

EDIT: It works on more than one item and ya, looks like 50%.

I have a feeling that 430ROCKS refers to MSP430, not April 30 :P

That's a logical thought but it was presented in a mailing from TI as a one-time promotion for april 30th.

I didn't even make the connection with the 430 and the date.

I got my eZ430-RF2500 kit today. Thanks. Won't be able to look at it for a few days, though. Work is going to be tough here.

They usually have a 430 Day starting about now, with sessions in most countries. They can be worth attending, as they give away an interesting freebie; I got an MSP430 "wristwatch" at one a few years ago.

I'm fairly disappointed with the range of the EZ430-RF2500 modules. They will not cover my house and even one floor is a little much for them at times and will cause them to fade in and out. This is strictly using the default sensor reading app that came with them as a test.

I'm assuming WiFi really effects these things, since they are 2.4Ghz.
