low cost target boards for eZ430-F2013 development tool

The eZ430-F2013 Development Tool was mentioned previously on this site. It allows development for MSP430F20XX microcontrollers at a low cost.

It is supplied with a single removable target MSP430F2013 microcontroller board as part of the USB key.

While this is great for development, it limits use for deployment. Now TI are offering additional eZ430 MSP430F2012 target boards at a very low price. Like the original target board, the microcontroller is presented with terminals for each pin of the chip.

The main difference between the MSP430F2013 and the MSP430F2012 appears to be in the ADC, with the former having 16bit Sigma-Delta A/D conversions with differential inputs, and the latter having 8, 10 bit, 200-ksps ADC channels.

The price as of this date is USD $10 for 3 target boards.
