    The MSP-EXP432P401R LaunchPad™ is an easy-to-use Evaluation Module (EVM) for the MSP432P401R microcontroller. It contains everything needed to start developing on the MSP432 Low-Power Performance ARM® 32-bit Cortex®-M4F microcontroller (MCU), including on-board emulation for programming, debugging, and energy measurements. The MSP432P401R device supports low-power applications requiring increased CPU speed, memory, analog, and 32-bit performance.

    This Launchpad includes an on-board emulator with EnergyTrace Technology, which means you can program and debug your projects without the need for additional tools, while also measuring total system energy consumption.

    All pins of the MSP-EXP432P401R device are fanned out for easy access. These pins make it easy to plug in 20-pin and 40-pin BoosterPacks that add additional functionality like wireless, capacitive touch and more. The out-of-box provided with the MSP-EXP432P401R LaunchPad features a graphical user-interface that enables the user to type in the desired beats per minute of an RGB LED, and select from over 16 million color options.
