MSP430FR2355 microcontrollers

MSP430FR2355 MCUs integrate four configurable signal-chain modules called smart analog combos, each of which can be used as a 12-bit DAC or a PGA to meet system needs.  

MSP430FR2355 LaunchPad development kit

The MSP-EXP430FR2355 LaunchPad kit is based on the MSP430FR2355 MCU with 32KB of memory, four configurable smart analog combo modules (12-bit DACs and PGAs), a 12-bit ADC and two comparators.

Temperature transmitter reference design

Low-component count, low-cost solution for 4- to 20-mA loop-powered, resistance-temperature detector (RTD), temperature transmitter.
