The MSP430 microcontrollers (MCUs) are ideal in applications in which battery life is critical. These microcontrollers require only 0.1 μA of current in low-power RAM retention mode. In this mode, the MCU must have power to retain volatile memory. In some systems with charge pumps, the TPS3619 can be used to shut down the charge pump to save system power consumption.
