Texas Instrument Products!


Beagle Bone (shown to the left)
The Beagle Bone is a card sized Linux computer that connects to the Internet and runs various types of software. We will be using the Beagle Bone to run the motor and the remaining mechanical aspects of WASH3D! Thank you TI for letting us use the Beagle Bone!

MSP430-G2 (shown to the right)
The MSP430 G2 is a TI Launchpad. This device can be used to control various objects such as LEDs and speakers. For our project we are using the G2 to controll the UV lights and the computer fans.  Our team members who intern at TI were able to obtain these products. Thanks Texas Instruments for all your help!
