Texas Instruments Launches MSP430F525x Microcontrollers

Texas Instruments (TI) MSP430F525x microcontrollers

Texas Instruments introduced their MSP430F525x microcontrollers. The new TI MCU devices reduce power consumption in “always on” applications like smart phones, tablets and accessories. Developers who transfer sensor hub, keyboard control and battery/power management functionalities to MSP430F525x MCUs can create portable consumer devices that put power-hungry application processors and touch screen controllers on standby instead of draining the system’s battery. The MSP430F525x MCUs are available now. Prices start at $2.61 for 1K units.

Texas Instruments Announces Wolverine Microcontroller Platform

Texas Instruments introduced their new Wolverine MSP430 microcontroller platform. The TI ultra-low-power microcontroller consumes 50% less power than any other MCU in the industry (360 nA real-time clock mode and less than 100 µA/MHz active power consumption). The first devices based on this platform will be the MSP430FR58xx microcontroller series. They will be available for sampling in June 2012.
