Designing a MSP430 Launchpad DC Motor/Stepper Motor Controller Shield Board using Kicad

The MSP430 is a mixed-signal microcontroller family from Texas Instruments.Built around a 16-bit CPU, the MSP430 is designed for low cost and, specifically, low power consumption embedded applications.

In the above video we will learn how to design a DC brushed motor controller and a stepper motor controller for the MSP430G2553 Launchpad board from scratch.

Texas Instruments released the MSP430 LaunchPad in July 2010. The MSP430 Launch Pad has an onboard flash emulator, USB, 2 programmable LEDs, and 1 programmable push button.

Here we will use Kicad to design a dual motor controller board that will teach the user to interface MSP430 with stepper motor and a DC brushed motor.
