ezFET Lite custom PCB
Texas Instruments has a range of 16 bit microcontrollers, the MSP430. To program these requires waht they call a Flash Emulation Tool (FET). Thankfully all their affordable development kits contain a small stripped down FET, know as the ezFET Lite. TI has open sourced this design and provide both the firmware and the schematics. I was given a tag-connect cable as a giveaway through the 43oh, MSP430 community forum. I decided to create a custom PCB to connect directly to the tag-connect cable.
