The TI MSP430 family of ultra-low-power microcontrollers consists of several devices featuring different sets of peripherals targeted for various applications. The architecture, combined with extensive 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 5 µs.
MSP430BT5190 is a microcontroller configuration with three 16-bit timers, a high-performance 12-bit ADC, four USCIs, a hardware multiplier, DMA, an RTC module with alarm capabilities, and 87 I/O pins.
The MSP430BT5190 microcontroller is designed for commercial use with TI's CC2560 based solutions in conjunction with Mindtree's Ethermind stack and SPP. This MSP430BT5190+CC2560 platform is ideal for applications that need a wireless serial link for cable replacement, such as remote controls, thermostats, smart meters, blood glucose meters, pulseoximeters, and many others.
