Configuring the DCO of MSP430

Clocks are the most important part of any microcontroller. These are the first thing one should know while beginning to use any feature of the controller whether it’s timer, interrupts, or ADC’s. All of them rely on the clock setting of the microcontroller and works accordingly. The MSP430 is not so different. However, it features a very easy to configure clock settings which might look a bit tough initially but once you get used to it, you will find it amazing to use. Unlike AVR, where you use super complicated fuse bits to change your clock source as well as the frequency, this is not the case with the MSP430. The clocks are easily configurable and importantly if you are using internal clock you can change its frequency at any… Continue reading
