Excerpt: The MSP430 is a mixed-signal microcontroller family from Texas Instruments. Built around a 16-bit CPU, the MSP430 is designed for low cost, and specifically, low power consumption embedded applications. The architecture dates from the 1990s and is reminiscent of the DEC PDP-11. The MSP430 is a popular choice among hardware designers for low powered embedded devices. The electric current drawn in idle mode can be less than 1 microamp. The top CPU speed is 25 MHz. It can be throttled back for lower power consumption. The MSP430 also utilizes six different Low-Power Modes, which can disable unneeded clocks and CPU. This allows the MSP430 to s...
