Energy Measurement Design Center for MSP430 MCUs




The Energy Measurement Design Center is a rapid development tool that enables energy measurement using TI MSP430i20xx and MSP430F67xx flash-based microcontrollers (MCUs). It includes a graphical user interface (GUI), documentation, software library and examples that can simplify development and accelerate designs in a wide range of power monitoring and energy measurement applications, including smart grid and building automation. Using the Design Center you can configure, calibrate, and view results without writing a single line of code.

You can set up a design in less than five minutes:

  1. Drag and drop an MCU, voltage sensors, and current sensors into the GUI workspace.
  2. Configure each sensor and the MCU according to your system configuration.
  3. The GUI will check for errors before generating the source code.
  4. Import the code into an IDE and program the MCU.
  5. Easily calibrate the MCU using the GUI and view the results.
