Ultra-low-power, low-cost MCUs targets consumer electronics, lighting and touch pads

January 26, 2011 | Paul Buckley | 222902120
Texas Instruments Incorporated has released 64 new ultra-low-power MSP430 Value Line microcontrollers (MCUs) that offer 16-bit performance at an 8-bit price.

The new MSP430G2xx2 MCUs include integrated capacitive touch IOs, allowing developers to interface directly with capacitive touch pads, eliminating the need for additional hardware and components.  Additionally, the MSP430 MCU Value Line expansion provides extra package and memory options, providing developers with increased design flexibility.      

Supported by TI's $4.30 LaunchPad development kit, free software and broad third party support network, the G2xx2 MCUs further enable an easy upgrade to 16-bit performance while maintaining the ultra-low Value Line price.      

Availability and pricing      

The new MSP430G2xx2 MCUs are priced from $0.33 for 100K units and samples are immediately available. The MSP430 MCU Value Line LaunchPad development kit (MSP-EXP430G2) is priced at $4.30.
