Description

MSP430FR215x and MSP430FR235x microcontrollers (MCUs) are part of the MSP430™ MCU value line portfolio of ultra-low-power low-cost devices for sensing and measurement applications. MSP430FR235x MCUs integrate four configurable signal-chain modules called smart analog combos, each of which can be used as a 12-bit DAC or a configurable programmable-gain Op-Amp to meet the specific needs of a system while reducing the BOM and PCB size. The device also includes a 12-bit SAR ADC and two comparators. The MSP430FR215x and MSP430FR235x MCUs all support an extended temperature range from –40° up to 105°C, so higher temperature industrial applications can benefit from the devices’ FRAM data-logging capabilities. The extended temperature range allows developers to meet requirements of applications such as smoke detectors, sensor transmitters, and circuit breakers.

The MSP430FR215x and MSP430FR235x MCUs feature a powerful 16-bit RISC CPU, 16-bit registers, and a constant generator that contribute to maximum code efficiency. The digitally controlled oscillator (DCO) allows the device to wake up from low-power modes to active mode typically in less than 10 µs.

The MSP430 ultra-low-power (ULP) FRAM microcontroller platform combines uniquely embedded FRAM and a holistic ultra-low-power system architecture, allowing system designers to increase performance while lowering energy consumption. FRAM technology combines the low-energy fast writes, flexibility, and endurance of RAM with the nonvolatile behavior of flash.

MSP430FR215x and MSP430FR235x MCUs are supported by an extensive hardware and software ecosystem with reference designs and code examples to get your design started quickly. Development kits include the MSP-EXP430FR2355 LaunchPad™ development kit and the MSP-TS430PT48 48-pin target development board. TI also provides free MSP430Ware™ software, which is available as a component of Code Composer Studio™ IDE desktop and cloud versions within TI Resource Explorer. The MSP430 MCUs are also supported by extensive online collateral, training, and online support through the E2E™ support forums.

For complete module descriptions, see the MSP430FR4xx and MSP430FR2xx Family User’s Guide.
