Texas Instruments MSP430F563x Mixed-Signal Microcontrollers, available now from Mouser, consist of several devices providing different sets of peripherals targeted for various applications. The architecture, combined with extensive low-power modes, is optimised to achieve extended battery life in portable measurement applications. The 16-bit RISC architecture, together with five low-power modes, is optimised to deliver extended battery life in portable measurement applications.
The device offers a powerful 16-bit RISC CPU, 16-bit registers, and constant generators that contribute to maximum code efficiency. The DCO enables the device to wake up from low-power modes to active mode in 3µs (typical).
The microcontrollers provide a high-performance 12-bit ADC, a comparator, two USCIs, USB 2.0, a hardware multiplier, DMA, four 16-bit timers, an RTC module with alarm capabilities, and up to 74 I/O pins.
Typical areas of application include analog and digital sensor systems, digital motor control, remote controls, thermostats, digital timers, and hand-held meters
