Microcontrollers (MCU)

RF Connectivity with Microcontrollers

Radio Frequency Spectrum

Texas Instruments' MSP430 and Stellaris MCU's are an ideal fit for numerous wireless solutions with their unique combination of ultra-low power consumption and high performance integrated analog. By making RF design easy, performance-rich and power-efficient, Texas Instruments' MCU's help advance networking applications for Personal Area Networks, Mesh and IP networks, Proprietary Protocols and RFID. TI MCU and RF solutions are perfect for applications that include, but are not limited to, sensor hubs, wireless audio, remote controls, and personal health. They're also ideal for home and building automation applications such as alarm and security systems, automatic meter reading systems, active and passive RFID/NFC systems and other monitoring and control systems.

TI offers a broad range of hardware and software tools for the MSP430 and Stellaris microcontroller family as well as comprehensive collateral such as reference designs, application notes and user guides. These combined with a vibrant, active community ecosystem make development fast and easy. For more information visit www.ti.com/ez430 and www.ti.com/stellariswireless.
