The Texas Instruments MSP430 family of ultra-low-power microcontrollers consist 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 MSP430G2252 is an ultra-low-power mixed signal microcontroller with a built-in 16-bit timer, and up to 16 I/O touch sense enabled pins and built-in communication capability using the universal serial communication interface and has a versatile analog comparator. The MSP430G2252 has a 10-bit A/D converter. Typical applications include low-cost 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.
