C5000™ Audio Capacitive Touch BoosterPack
The Audio Capacitive Touch BoosterPack (430BOOST-C55AUDIO1) is a plug in board for the MSP430™ Value Line LaunchPad development kit (MSP-EXP430G2). The kit offers a complete reference design for capacitive touch solutions, using the capacitive touch I/O ports of select MSP430 Value Line microcontrollers. This reference design allows designers to easily control the C5000™ ultra-low-power DSP using TI’s MSP430 microcontroller for crystal clear playback and record of MP3 audio/voice files. Using the Audio BoosterPack, programmers realize the power and efficiency of the C5000™ DSP without having to learn how to program the DSP. And the combination of the lowest standby power microcontroller (MSP430) with the lowest total power DSP (C5000) allows manufacturers to deliver ultra-low-power devices with extremely long battery life.
