The Official MSP430 Blog

  • It's that time of year again and we want to make it easy to start developing on MSP430 microcontrollers ! This promotion will run for two weeks only, while supplies last. Check out the great deals we have on MSP430 LaunchPads and the MSP-FET using...
  • Not long ago, the BETA version of GCC (GNU Compiler Collection) for MSP430 was released. Now the partnership RedHat has resulted in the FREE production-ready compiler available integrated in CCS and stand-alone! It is available for use with all MSP430...
  • This guest blog post was contributed by Tariq Chang, Product Marketing Engineer responsible for sensor analog front-ends and nanotimers at Texas Instruments. TI's ultra-low-power MSP430 FRAM microcontrollers (MCUs) are the ultimate choice for designing...
  • Head over to the E2E forum now to get your questions answered.
  • Did you know that FRAM has been around for years? It combines the best of common memory technologies like SRAM and Flash and is now available in our new MSP430FRxx microcontroller series ! Want to dig a little deeper to understand the benefits of these...
  • Ready to get live support for your new MSP430FR59/69x microcontrollers? Head over to the MSP430 forum of the E2E Community on the following dates for live support ! Tuesday August 12th 11:00 AM - 13:00 PM (CDT) Wednesday August 13th...
  • Have you heard of TI's EnergyTrace technology yet? If not, you will want to keep reading - because debugging and power optimization of your MCU applications is about to get much, much easier! This new technology measures the time density of a software...
  • Did you miss the recent webinar with Element14 about Ultra-low-power design and debug using the MSP430FR5969 LaunchPad ? It covers a breakdown of the new MSP430FR5969 FRAM microcontroller , the LaunchPad, related BoosterPacks (i.e. Wi-Fi, Sub-1GHz, LCD...
  • Planetary Resources is pushing the boundaries of resource mining by reaching out, just a little further to the asteroids that have orbits close to Earth. We know of nearly 11,000 near-Earth asteroids in our Solar System, and thousands more are discovered...
  • Near Field Communication is still a fairly new technology, but paired with MSP430 microcontrollers, it unlocks the doors (pun intended) to a number of applications. In addition to access control, the new Field Powered NFC Reference Design (TIDA-00217...
