mabye I will do a am/fm radio with this sh*t using a msp430 and lcd to make one that doesn
t suck
Rickta59
seems like ti is getting its butt kicked in the IoT space
the amazon deal with those Dash order button devices must have been a big win for ST
and I guess for broadcom also
http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:880427 need to package up an msp430 like this
zlalanne
that's pretty cool
would be good for intro to electronics classes too
Rickta59
i have an msp430fr5959 tssop-38 on a breakout board
something like that would be neat
what do you think i could charge for that?
zlalanne
like selling it on tindie?
Rickta59
yeah
zlalanne
idk much about 3d printing but I'm guessing the cost of materials is pretty low
idk like 10 bucks?
Rickta59
i was thinking the whole thing as a package
chip+passives+case
zlalanne
oh
yea idk $20 or so, how much is a launchpad?
Rickta59
yeah ..
$15?
zlalanne
yea looks like the launchpad is $16
Rickta59
maybe a better thing to do with an stm32 ebay clone
zlalanne
$23 with shipping
Rickta59
* just looking at the msp430fr chips alone .. are more than I thought
