'[OT] TI embedded system.'
I just finished a 3x3x3 LED cube with my daughter (7 yo) using the LaunchPad, MSP430F2013, a shift register, 3x NPN, & 9v -> LM317.
Debugging without the uC in the Launchpad requires only TEST, RESET, and GND. Programming was done in IAR which I like a lot. Wrote functions for most LED patterns so she was then able to "program" different patterns by chaining the functions.
>From start to finish, this was a very quick project. I'm considerably more experienced with uCs then when I started with PICs, but given that, I still think the LaunchPad provided a very accessible way to learn a new platform. Can't wait for the 20 pin G series 430s.
For what it is worth, Microchip's datasheets are way, way better than TI's. TI seems to rely on App Notes very heavily while Microchip just puts everything into the datasheet. TI does seem to offer more sample code.
She had to do all the soldering (on perf board) with longer than necessary 30 AWG Kynar. Ended up being a very "modern art"-ish mass of red and blue loops inside a cathode/anode cage.
