    ELEMENT14 - BOOSTXL-HAPTOUCH - MSP430, HAPTOUCH BOOSTER PACK, FOR LAUNCHPAD 3.5 5 2 2
    TI Haptics Enabled Gaming Controller BoosterPack - Review In conclusion: sure it has it's pluses and minuses, sure it's either cheap and free or buggy and edgy, but hey, that's what i had in mind, to do my own transparent research about this product and find as many strengths and weaknesses as i could. From my personal point of view, the Haptouch Boosterpack it's a good and unique piece of equipment with more potential to exploit giving the programmability capabilities that makes it so versatile for other precision applications and robotics.

    TI Haptics Enabled Gaming Controller BoosterPack - Review I have been trying to get the HapTouch GUI to work reliably, but with little success. My main system is Windows 7 Ultimate with 8GB Ramand an AMD quad core processor, it takes just under two minutes for the GUI to open up, a further forty seconds to populate the text boxes and then it can only randomly find the USB UART Port Read More: http://www.element14.com/community/roadTestReviews/1732 May 6, 2014

    1. Works as a gaming controller with popular web- and PC-based gaming platforms.
    2. Design your own haptics effect sequences, and distribute them to others.
    3.Beyond just listening to music, you can experience it, using Immersion’s audio2haptics feature.

    A: 
    The LaunchPad essentially serves as a smart USB-to-I2C bridge. The emulator on MSP430 LaunchPads provides a backchannel UART through which the target MSP430 can communicate with the PC. When the LaunchPad is attached to the PC over USB, the backchannel produces a virtual COM port on the PC. This application report provides LaunchPad software that receives UART commands from the PC and translates them to I2C for the BoosterPack.

    A: 
    HapTouch BoosterPack sold by element14 has the software already preprogrammed in the factory. If you bought this, then you do not need to program it yourself unless you want to make changes. Unlike the LaunchPad, the BoosterPack does not have its own emulator. It must be programmed via JTAG, using an MSP-FET430UIF (a “FET tool”).
