The interfacing of the 3-V MSP430x1xx and MSP430x4xx microcontroller families to circuits with a supply of 5 V or higher is shown. Input, output and I/O interfaces are given and explained. Worse-case design equations are provided, where necessary. Some simple power supplies generating both voltages are shown, too.
