New 8-bit MCU range from TI

9 June 2010 DSP, Micros & Memory

Texas Instruments recently unveiled the MSP430 microcontroller (MCU) Value Line that claims to offer 16-bit MCU performance and low power consumption at 8-bit MCU prices. The roadmap includes more than 100 MCUs to be released over the next 15 months, providing developers with a broad portfolio to best fit their memory, peripheral and packaging configuration needs.

The new MSP430G2xx devices are code compatible across the MSP430 MCU platform, enabling easy code migration and upgrades to higher-end devices as application requirements evolve. They are also supported by TI’s easy-to-use MSP430 tools, free software and broad third party support network.

The devices feature five power modes with standby current consumption of 0,4 μA and <1 microseconds wake-up time. They integrate peripherals such as 10-bit ADCs, UART, comparator and serial communication. The first 27 MSP430G2xx devices are immediately available and include up to 2 KB Flash and 128 B RAM; future devices will include up to 16 KB Flash and 512 B RAM.
