At U$9.99 per LaunchPad board (plus shipping), this may “seem too good to be true.” Let me assure you that the offer is very real. It appears that TI is taking a loss on this deal (probably writing it off to advertising) , and hoping to make it up in higher units sold.
Now, you can build your own circuit to add to the LaunchPad. Insert the components just like you were using a regular solderless breadboard and then wire them to the LaunchPad signals present right on the board. Wah-laa, nice and simple. Create any kind of Booster Pack that you want, and with this soldered version, you have a nice quick prototype.
You may also add a simple 170-point solderless breadboard to allow a simple re-usable prototyping system. If you use 10-pin female-male pass-through headers you will have access to all of the 430's signals. Prototyping has never been simpler or quicker.
While designed for the original MSP-430 LaunchPad, this will work for the newer LaunchPads as well. The only issue is that the newer LaunchPads break out more signals, and so this protoboard (like any other MSP-430 Booster Pack) will only provide access to some of the pins.
Note: this kit does not include the LaunchPad, itself. You can purchase one of those directly from Texas Instruments, itself, at: http://www.ti.com/ww/en/launchpad/launchpads-msp430-msp-exp430g2.html

Welcome to the Granzeier Consulting Tindie Store. I am Art Granzeier, and my company produces kits and packs for budding engineers. Most of my target market is (supposed to be) high-school, college and young adult students who are interested in, or are working in EE (electronic engineering.) My secondary market (or at least it should be secondary - but mostly this is my primary market, at least until I get going enough to market to schools and school groups) is electronics/robotics hobbyists and non-electronics engineers who want to learn more about the electronics discipline.
I have a few text books that are nearly done, and a few more that are on their way. Once these are done, they will be offered with appropriate kits which will cover the lab work for the course. My ideal here is to get to be like the old Heathkit courses (on a more modern point, Andy Lindsay, from Parallax, does a pretty darned good job of writing, and I try to emulate him, with my own slant/point of view, somewhat.) I have been teaching, professionally, on and off since 1989, and have written a lot of my own course/quiz/exam material, so that is what I am using for my textbooks.
We ship, at least, every Monday and Thursday. Heavy ordering will prompt additional shipments.
