Keywords:microcontroller? digital-to-analog converter? code library?

The MSP430 is a microcontroller solution designed for low-cost, low-power precision sensor applications because it consumes little power. The DAC161P997 is a 16- bit digital-to-analog converter (DAC) for transmitting an analog output current over an industry standard 4-20mA current loop.

This library provides functions to facilitate the interfacing of any MSP430 device to a DAC161P997. Any device within the MSP430 family can be used with this library, made possible by hardware abstraction. This allows the designer maximum flexibility in choosing the best MSP430 device for the application. This document provides descriptive information and instructions for using the library either for demonstration purposes or implementation into a project. This is the recommended starting point for developing software for the DAC161P997 and MSP430 combination. The software examples have been developed for the MSP430F5528 breakout board, but can easily be ported to another hardware platform.
