I was wondering if OpenCV can be used on embedded MSP430x1xx boards made by Texas Instruments?

Before asking if openCV is available, bigger issue is that MSP430 appears to have no Linux porting. It makes sense since this microcontroller has no MMU -- uCLinux could be an option but the MSP has really little amount of RAM, see this discussion. We could discuss about the necessary steps to port openCV but I'm afraid they would imply great effort to port or reuse libraries that openCV expects to find during compilation and runtime. Easiest option would be to get the openCV C code of the operations you want to use and migrate them individually into your project under TI CCS or gcc/ Eclipse.
