Texas Instruments Grace Graphical Peripheral Configuration Software

Texas Instruments launched their free Grace software platform for enabling and configuring MSP430 microcontroller peripherals. The TI Grace software is a visual plug-in that enables developers to interact with buttons, pull-down menus and helpful pop-ups to generate easy-to-understand C code that automatically configures the low-level register settings of analog-to-digital converters (ADCs), operational amplifiers (op amps), timers, serial communication modules, clocks and other peripherals.
