What is the default frequency of DCO in MSP430G2553?

DCOCLK – DCO is an integrated Digitally Controlled Oscillator which do not use any external crystals. The DCO can generate a wide variety of frequencies ranging from few 100 kilo hertz to 10’s of MHz. The oscillator has a first startup time and is the default clock of the MSP430 after reset.

How many input ports does msp430g2553 have?

MSP430 microcontroller series usually has 8 bit ports numbered as Port 1, Port2, Port3 etc. MSP430G2553 microcontroller has only two input output ports Ports 1 and PORT 2. As shown in pinout of MSP43052553 microcontroller each port is of 8 bits.

Where do I find the driver for the MSP430G2?

You can find the driver instructions below. Download and open Energia on your system. Connect your LaunchPad to your computer over USB. Select MSP430g2553 under Tools > Board, and select the correct serial port under Tools > Serial Port. If you don’t see a selectable serial port, you likely have a driver issue.

How to use Input Output pins of MSP430G2 Launchpad?

As explained earlier MSP430G2 launchpad have 16 GPIO pins and we can use any pin as a digital output pin. pinmode function is used to initialize GPIO pins either as an input or output. First argument to the pinMode function is a pin number to which we want to declare as a digital output and second argument is type either OUTPUT or INPUT.

What does the Register PxDIR do in MSP430?

In MSP430 the register PxDIR controls the direction of the port (Input or Output),here x refers to the Port number eg P1DIR for Port1.Writing a 1 will make the corresponding Port bit as output and a Zero would make corresponding Port bit as input.The register PxOUT contains the data that is available to the outside pins.
