Discussions on how to get your MSP JTAG programmer up and running.

I found myself wanting a dedicated power monitor to use while developing battery-powered application circuits, so I built one using the MSP430G2402.

This device has already helped me identify and eliminate about 40% of the power usage of a project in-progress.

Right now, I just have the code as a zip file on the download tab, but if anyone wants to develop additional features, I can check the code into Subversion and create some branches.

The board can be ordered for about $12 (for 3 boards) by uploading the Eagle .brd file to I don't make any money from oshpark.

Nice board and write up! I have a 430 laying around that just found a new purpose.

This would go over well at the forums too.

Good idea. I just posted it over there as well.

I submitted it to SparkFun to see if they wanted to make and sell them, but no go.
