The Never Ending Conversion

 In embedded C, MSP430

When using the ADC10 in an MSP430 with multiple conversions, the ADC10BUSY bit will stay on even after the conversions are done. Trying to be a good little programmer and checking to make sure the ADC is done will leave you hanging… forever. The conversions must be done for the data transfer and the data transfer controller (DTC) will set the ADC10 interrupt after it is done, therefore, the conversions must be done if the interrupt is run.
