The MSP430 series of microcontrollers are ideal in applications where battery life is critical. These microcontollers require only 0.1?A of current in low-power RAM retention mode; In this mode the microcontroller must have power to retain volatile memory. In some systems with charge pumps, the TPS3619 can be used to shut down the charge pump, saving system power consumption.
