Microcontrollers (MCU)

MSP430 ultra-low-power sensing & measurement MCUs

One platform. One ecosystem. Endless possibilities.

The TI MSP430™ microcontroller (MCU) portfolio offers a wide variety of 16-bit MCUs with ultra-low-power and integrated analog and digital peripherals for sensing and measurement applications. MSP430 MCUs are supported by development kits, reference designs, software, training, documentation and online support to get you from concept to prototype to production quickly.

Value line & general purpose MCUs

MSP430 MCUs as low as $0.25 in volume with wide range memory options from 0.5KB to 256KB. Integrated analog and digital peripherals include ADCs, DACs, Op Amps and LCD drivers.

Capacitive touch sensing MCUs

MSP430 CapTIvate™ MCUs easily add low-power capacitive touch buttons, sliders and wheels to your MCU application. Reliably detect touch through plastic, glass and metal overlays in the presence of noise and moisture.

Ultrasonic & mechanical flow sensing MCUs

System-on-chip MSP430 MCUs for high-accuracy water, heat and gas flow measurement. Utilize integrated ultrasonic sensing front end and DSP capabilities with low energy accelerator.
