MSP430 Mixed-Signal Microcontroller
The MSP430 is an ultra-low-power microcontroller including numerous devices with diverse peripheral sets aimed at different applications. The architecture is optimized for extended battery life in portable measurement applications, thanks to five low-power modes.
The device is equipped with a powerful 16-bit RISC CPU, 16-bit registers, and constant generators, all of which help to code efficiency. The digitally controlled oscillator (DCO) enables a one-second transition from low-power to active mode.
