Description PWM Controlled Meter MSP430 project

Use a MSP430 Launchpad to drive an antique Voltmeter. This is just a project to demonstrate an practical application using the MSP430 Microcontroller.

I had to modify the meter sligtly since is has a 10V full scale while the MSP430 runs on 3.3Volt.

The MSP430 is programmed to drive the meter directly using PWM.

Currently the setup is running in demo mode only, meaning that is goes from0 to full scale and back continiously.

I'm thinking of implementing serial communication, effectively converting it to an MegaBitmeter.
