Texas Instruments (TI) rolled out 64 new ultra-low-power MSP430 Value Line microcontrollers (MCUs) that offer 16-bit performance at an 8-bit price. The MSP430G2xx2 MCUs feature integrated capacitive touch IOs, which enable developers to interface directly with capacitive touch pads without additional hardware and components. The TI G2xx2 MCU Value Line also include extra package and memory options. Samples are available now. The new MSP430G2xx2 MCUs are priced from $0.33 for 100K units.
Texas Instruments introduced the MSP430 microcontroller (MCU) Value Line that offers 16-bit MCU performance and ultra-low power consumption at ultra-low 8-bit MCU prices. The new MSP430G2xx MCUs are code compatible across the MSP430 MCU platform, enabling easy code migration and upgrades to higher-end devices as application requirements evolve. The MSP430G2xx microcontrollers are priced from $0.25 for 100K units. Samples can be ordered now. The roadmap includes over 100 devices to be released during the next 15 months.
