This application report describes the interface of a 3-V MSP430 microcontroller (MCU) to a circuit with a supply of 5 V or higher. This report explains input, output, and I/O interfaces and provides worst-case design equations where necessary. This report also describes some simple power supplies that generate both voltages.
