This application report contains the results from benchmarking the MSP430 against microcontrollers from other vendors. IAR Systems' Embedded Workbench development platform was used to build and execute (in simulation mode) a set of simple math functions. These functions were executed on each microcontroller to benchmark different aspects of the microcontroller's performance. In addition, FIR Filter, Dhrystone, and Whetstone analysis are included.
