This report describes a BoosterPack for use with the G2 LaunchPad, such that when they are paired together, they become a haptics-enabled game controller for use with PC-based gaming platforms. The BoosterPack uses the MSP430TCH5E, an MSP430 derivative specially enabled to use the MSP430TCH5E Haptics Library. This library, in turn, is built around the TouchSense TS2200 haptics library from Immersion Corporation, the haptics industry leader. The BoosterPack also features use of MSP430's Capacitive Touch Library to accomplish inexpensive capacitive buttons. The app note further demonstrates how to use MSP430's TouchPro GUI to tune these buttons.
