C5000™ Audio Capacitive Touch BoosterPack

C5000 BoosterPack allows quick evaluation and simplified design of audio capacitive touch products

Image of Texas Instruments' C5000™ Audio Capacitive Touch BoosterPackTexas Instruments' Audio Capacitive Touch BoosterPack (430BOOST-C55AUDIO1) is a plug-in board for the MSP430™ Value Line LaunchPad development kit (MSP-EXP430G2). The kit offers a complete reference design for capacitive touch solutions, using the capacitive touch I/O ports of select MSP430 Value Line microcontrollers. This reference design allows designers to easily control the C5000™ ultra-low-power DSP using TI’s MSP430 microcontroller for crystal clear playback and recording of MP3 audio/voice files. Using the Audio BoosterPack, programmers realize the power and efficiency of the C5000™ DSP without having to learn how to program the DSP. The combination of the lowest standby power microcontroller (MSP430) with the lowest total power DSP (C5000) allows manufacturers to deliver ultra-low-power devices with extremely long battery life. 

Features
  • BoosterPack board with ultra-low-power C5000 DSP for crystal clear playback and recording of MP3 audio and video files
  • Pre-programmed microSD card with DSP function code for MP3 playback, record and music storage (file storage)
  • Mini-USB cable for connection with a computer to power up the system
  • Stereo single-jack headset connector (supports stereo/mono headphones with built-in microphone)
  • Initial demo headset with integrated microphone
  • Supported by a user interface for OLED display and MP3 playback/record application APIs 
  • MSP430G2553 Value Line Microcontroller pre-programmed with the ACTBP host demo application – this will replace the MSP430 on the separate LaunchPad (not included)
  • Capacitive-touch scroll wheel, proximity sensor, and on-board LEDs
  • Supported by a complete capacitive touch software library
  • USB mass-storage-device capability for the microSD card with provided USB cable
  • OLED display (monochrome, 96×16 pixels)
  • Quick-start guide included
