This document explains the maximum ESD diode current specified for GPIO on MSP microcontrollers. Sometimes signals on specific pins exceed the supply of the MSP MCU. In such a case, the device can handle this overvoltage condition through the ESD diodes, but the ESD diode specification must be considered during application design. The items to be considered are described in this document.
