This is a smaller project which combines the MSP430 Breakoutboard with an Arduino System.
This is something like TI vs Microchip.
Surely also there are controllers which are more suitable for a Datalogger but i enjoyed the simplicity of the Arduino Ecosystem and the energy saving of the MSP430 + MQP2013.
So in general a Datlogger has to Store Data in Intervalls so there is a lot of time which the controller and the peripherals are powered without actually using them.
Surely there are more ways to save energy but i liked my approach.
The MSP430 is powered continuously, a timer runs down and when it is up, the Power for the Arduino is engadget. After the Arduino has completed its job, it pulls low a certain IO line.
This is the signal for the MSP430 to cut power.
Depending how well this works maybe i will do a designated PCB for this project.
