||ACTIVE||A complete software package for MSC, HID & CDC USB implementations.|
The USB Developers Package for MSP430 is a software package containing all necessary source code and sample applications required for developing a USB-based MSP430 project. The package only supports MSP430 USB devices.
- MSP430 API Code Stacks - Contains all necessary API's and examples to get started with USB development, using the CDC (Communications Device Class), HID (Human Interface Device) and MSC (Mass Storage Class) classes. The USB API also supports composite devices where a single physical device contains multiple USB interfaces. For example, a USB device may be a CDC+HID+MSC composite.
- USB Field Firmware Updater - A Windows Visual Studio project for building an application that upgrades MSP430 firmware in the field, using the MSP430's on-chip USB bootstrap loader (BSL).
- Windows HID API (Human Interface Device class) - A Windows API enabling communication between a PC application and an MSP430-based device running the MSP430 HID API stack. It enables HID to be used for general-purpose USB communication, rather than being limited to mice and keyboards.
- USB Descriptor Tool - A code generation tool that quickly configures the USB API stack for any combination of USB interfaces (single or composite), including descriptor generation – simply run the Tool and begin writing applications. It saves the developer's time and reduces the chance for errors.
