Stand-alone program or seamless integration into TI's eclipse-based Code Composer Studio software
Grace software generates easy-to-understand C code, which is directly inserted into your active project. This seamless integration into the integrated development environment (IDE) allows the Grace generated code to be debugged and downloaded into your MSP430 microcontroller just as if it was handwritten. Grace is also available as a stand-alone tool to support other IDEs, such as IAR Embedded Workbench.

Features
  • GUI-based configuration tool for setting up ADCs, OpAmps, Timers, Clocks, GPIO, Comparators, Serial Communication, and other MSP430 peripherals.
  • Generates easy-to-understand C code that properly configures your device
  • Compatible with LaunchPad and most eZ430 tools
  • Grace tooltips offer helpful popups and hints for properly configuring your MSP430 device
  • Minimizes any configuration conflicts or collisions between multiple peripherals

Install Instructions:
