Low cost, ultra low power MCUs

Texas Instruments has introduced what it says are its lowest-cost ultra-low-power MSP430 MCUs for sensing applications. The latest additions to the range are the MSP430FR2000 and MSP430FR2100, with 500byte and 1kbyte of memory, respectively, along with a new development kit (pictured).

According to TI, its latest MSP430 MCUs offer developers the flexibility to customise 25 common system-level functions, including timers, input/output expanders, system reset controllers and EEPROM, using a library of code examples.

The company says a common core architecture, a tools and software ecosystem and extensive documentation make it easy to choose the best MSP430 value line sensing MCU for a particular project.
