Part Number: MSP430
Function: 16-Bit Ultra-Low-Power Microcontroller
Manufacturer: Texas Instruments
The MSP430 is Ultra-low-power microcontroller.
TI’s ultra-low power MSP430 MCUs have been designed to serve in wireless-enabled applications with a variety of system architectures. The following paper presents four different IoT architectures and highlights how MSP430 MCUs can easily be designed with a wireless connectivity solution to kick start an IoT design.
Wireless MCU solution
Ultra-low-power MSP430 MCUs are designed to serve in four different connectivity architectures.
As shown in the diagram below, the first architecture is the wireless MCU solution that runs the network stack and the host application in one chip. TI’s CC430 family is an example of a wireless MCU well suited for this architecture. This solution provides tight integration between the MCU core, peripherals, software, and a sub-1 GHz RF transceiver, creating a true wireless MCU solution that is easy to use. TI’s CC2541 is another power-optimized wireless MCU example. It enables Bluetooth ®low energy (BLE) and proprietary 2.4 GHz network nodes to be built with low total bill of-material (BOM) costs. The CC2541 combines the performance of a leading RF transceiver with an 8051 MCU.
This configuration is ideal for small to medium RF protocol stacks where memory space can be evenly allocated for RF physical layer, RF protocol, and the top-layer application. Tight integration allows for highly optimized code and performance for transactions between physical and protocol layers.
