The Texas Instruments MSP430 family of ultra-low-power microcontrollers consists of several devices featuring different sets of peripherals targeted for various applications. The architecture, combined with five low-power modes, is optimized to achieve extended battery life in portable measurement applications. The device features a powerful 16-bit RISC CPU, 16-bit registers, and constant generators that contribute to maximum code efficiency. The digitally controlled oscillator (DCO) allows the device to wake up from low-power modes to active mode in less than 1 µs.
The MSP430F22x2 series is an ultra-low-power mixed-signal microcontroller with two built-in 16-bit timers, a universal serial communication interface (USCI), a 10-bit analog-to-digital converter (ADC) with integrated reference and data transfer controller (DTC), and 32 I/O pins.
Typical applications include sensor systems that capture analog signals, convert them to digital values, and then process the data for display or for transmission to a host system. Stand-alone radio-frequency (RF) sensor front ends are another area of application.
