This is new member of OLIMEXINO family with Arduino like layout.
It’s based on MSP430F5510 microcontroller from TI with 32KB Flash, 4KB RAM, 25MHz clock, USB stack etc.
Texas Instruments USB stack is very optimized:
CDC Flash 5.1K RAM 268
HID Flash 5.2K RAM 260
MSC Flash 8.3K RAM 698
CDC+CDC Flash 5.4K RAM 294
HID+HID Flash 5.4K RAM 284
CDC+HID Flash 6.9K RAM 293
This board was specially designed to support EasyMSP project: http://code.google.com/p/easymsp/
The prototypes are in production and if there are no too much changes after the first protos we will have this board in stock ready for sale in March.
MSP430 are well known for the low power so this project is to unleash dataloggers, handheld applications and wireless nodes.
EasyMSP uses same Arduino language so people who develop with Arduino will use same syntax just having the convenience to work with more powerful and low power processor.
The presnce of lipo battery charger and UEXT connector makes handheld and RF applications easy.
