The SimpleLink™ Ethernet MSP432E411Y microcontroller EVM is an evaluation platform for SimpleLink Arm®Cortex®-M4F-based Ethernet microcontrollers. The MSP432E411Y-BGAEVM demonstrates the MSP432E411Y microcontroller with its on-chip 10/100 Ethernet MAC and PHY, USB 2.0, LCD controller, External Peripheral Interface (EPI), hibernation module, motion control pulse-width modulation, and a multitude of simultaneous serial connectivity. The MSP432E411Y-BGAEVM also features a fully compliant 40-pin BoosterPack™ plug-in module header, a user switch, two user LEDs, and dedicated reset and wake switches.
The preprogrammed quick start application on the EVM is an application that performs a self-test on the onboard SDRAM by writing and reading back values in memory using the MSP432E411Y EPI. The self-test blinks an LED to indicate that the test passes. Figure 1 shows the MSP432E411Y-BGAEVM with key features highlighted.
