Report on "The three day workshop on MSP430 microcontroller and DSP processors".


The Electronics and Communication department of Christ university faculty of engineering, Texas instruments India University program and EdGate Technologies private limited arranged “The three day workshop on MSP430 microcontroller and DSP processors” in association with academic staff college on 17, 20 and 21 October 2014.
Day 1: 17-10-2014: MSP430 Theoretical aspects
The program began with a detailed study of MSP430 microcontroller architecture. It is a 16-bit mixed signal microcontroller designed for low cost low power applications. The design is based on the Von-Neuman architecture with reduced instruction set. The processor speed is 25MHz and have 256 KB flash memory with 18KB RAM. 

DAY 2: 20-10-2014: MSP430 Hands On and Introduction to DSP Processor TMS320C6000
The hands on session started with setting up the board for programming with the software tool Code Composer Studio. The programming is based on C, which will be compiled and written to the memory by the Code Composer Studio itself.

Further hands on was done on how temperature sensor and ADC interface works on the board is demonstrated and experimented. Displaying the room temperature and the voltage level given by a potentiometer integrated to the board was the two experiments carried out.

DAY-3: 21-10-2014: Key Note Speech by TI University Program DirectorMr.SanjaySrivastava and Hands on Session on the TMS320C6000 DSP

Key Note Address
In his speech Mr.Sanjay Srivastava commented positively on the activities initiated by the departments toward the growing technological trends. The main theme of the talk was about the “Internet of Things”
Internet of Things is the development of the current technology by which all the devices and belongings of a person is synchronized. Agreeing upon the current imbalance on the over usage of technology, Mr.SanjaySrivastava shared his belief that the time when the users are matured enough in case of electronic gadget is not far. He emphasised much upon the usage of the technology towards the societal development in rural India.

Several questions were raised by the faculty members ranging from the aim of the TI university program to the current global market of the electronics.The answers were the real eye openers.
