Connecting the VFD Clock BoosterPack

Step 1 - Solder the Crystal

Your Launchpad should have shipped with a 13.768kHz crystal. To provide more accurate accurate time-keeping clock, you'll need to solder it to your Launchpad. Instructions for soldering your crystal can be found here

Alternately - you may uncomment the define for NOXTAL in main.c, but time kept by the device will be less accurate.
