TI’s second Back To School promotion is live. This one is hot as the SA430 originally sells for $249.00. With the BTS sale you get it for $24.99 and free shipping. This is a good debug tool to have in your electronics toolbox.
The MSP-SA430-SUB1GHZ Spectrum Analyzer is CC430-based reference design that can be used to implement an easy and affordable tool to jumpstart RF development in the sub GHz frequency range. More and more electronic devices include a built-in RF link. RF transceivers are inexpensive – but the equipment to design and debug such systems is not. The CC430-based spectrum analyzer provides an affordable development tool that reduces the time needed on expensive measurement equipment. The system is recognized as a USB device and is operated from a powerful yet simple graphical user interface that is available for free to download.
