Texas Instruments MSP430AFE2xx 16-bit Microcontrollers

Texas Instruments (TI) introduced the MSP430AFE2xx 16-bit microcontrollers. The analog front end (AFE) ultra-low-power MCUs are based on a 16-bit RISC architecture with a system frequency of 12MHz. The microcontroller has an energy accuracy with less than 0.1% error over a dynamic range of 2400:1. The MSP430AFE2xx features three independent 24-bit sigma-delta A/D converters, one 16-bit timer, one 16-bit hardware multiplier, USART communication interface, watchdog timer, and 11 I/O pins. The TI MSP430AFE2xx microcontrollers are available now. Prices start at $0.80 for 1K units.
