OMG Anubis

OMG (OpenTag Module+Gadget) is a developers' kit produced by JP intended specifically for OpenTag, although potentially other firmware could be used as well. OMG specifies an OpenTag implementation coupled with a USB-TTY shell interface (the Gadget) as a fully integrated dev-kit interface with no host software dependencies.

The Anubis Model uses a CC430 for the OpenTag implementation, and an MSP430F5503 to implement the USB Gadget. Both are programmable via JTAG. The nomenclature is consistent: MSP430-based OMG kits, such as the Anubis, are named after Egyptian mythological deities, and the role of the specific deity indicates the form factor & features.

OMG Anubis core features:

  • Form-factor includes headers compatible with with TI Launchpad pinouts.
  • Standard pin positions for UART, SPI, I2C, 4x ADC, 4x digital/PWM in, 4x digital/PWM out.
  • Mini-B USB port
  • 2x bicolor LEDs connected to OpenTag Module
  • 1x bicolor LED connected to Gadget
  • 1x user button connected to OpenTag Module
  • 1x user button connected to Gadget
  • 1x bus switch for selecting JTAG to OpenTag Module or Gadget MCU
