MSP430 Launchpad as I2C host for audio products

For many, the shift from an evaluation board and software to a stand-alone platform is a daunting task. Getting a self-booting demonstration requires significant time and effort to generate the correct I2C script and generate the code for the microcontroller that will eventually boot your device.

This project removes many of those barriers by providing a framework that simple wakes up, and boots over I2C. This framework is designed to work on the MSP430 Launchpad development tool.

Connection between the launchpad and the target hardware (your own hardware, or an evaluation board) is simple. You only need to connect the three wires and plug in the power. The framework also allows for a serial port terminal to be used to send additional I2C instructions after bootup, another useful debug point.
