TI: implement simple sensing functions with lowest-cost MCU family
Developers can now implement simple sensing solutions through a variety of integrated mixed-signal features in TI’s new family of MSP430 value line sensing MCUs. Additions to the family include two new entry-level devices and a new TI LaunchPad development kit for quick and easy evaluation.
Developers now have the flexibility to customize 25 common system-level functions including timers, input/output expanders, system reset controllers, EEPROM and more, using a library of code examples. A common core architecture, a tools and software ecosystem, and extensive documentation including migration guides make it easy for developers to choose the best MSP430 value line sensing MCU for each of their designs. Designers can scale from the 0.5-KB MSP430FR2000 MCU to the rest of the MSP430 sensing and measurement MCU portfolio for applications that require up to 256 KB of memory, higher performance or more analog peripherals.
The new MSP430FR2000 and MSP430FR2100 MCUs (with 0.5 KB and 1 KB of memory, respectively) and the new development kit join the MSP430 value line sensing family which includes the MSP430FR2111, MSP430FR2311, MSP430FR2033, MSP430FR2433 and MSP430FR4133 microcontroller families and their related development tools and software.
