Step 4: Connect battery supply voltage to the MSP430 microcontroller

  1. Connect a short red wire between A11 and the red 3V rail.
  2. Connect a short black wire between G11 and the blue 0V rail.
  3. Connect a 22 kOhm resistor (coloured bands: red, red, orange, gold) between D11 and G15. This resistor will keep the voltage high on the reset pin of the MSP430 (pin 16) when the robot is disconnected from the LaunchPad.
