The latest trends in industrial automation have presented many challenges with respect to microcontroller (MCU) development:
Achieve more performance on a reduced power budget
Collect more precise sensor data to make better decisions
Operate in increasingly harsh environments
Fit the entire design in a space constrained location
These challenges are commonly seen in factory automation and control environments where the MCU can be used to process sensor data, store the date or take immediate action, and communicate that information via wired or wireless communication protocols ranging from the digital HART® protocol on a 4-20mA current loop, to Bluetooth® Smart 2.4GHz solutions.
The MSP MCU portfolio offers differentiated options to meet any and all of these needs. Here are some of the latest TI Design Reference Designs to help you get your system off the ground:
HART® Field Transmitter - Full HART and 4-20mA field transmitter solution interfaced to a Resistance Temperature Detector (RTD) using the MSP430FR5969 MCU
IO-Link Field Transmitter - Hall-sensing proximity sensor and temperature sensing multi-variable field transmitter using the MSP430FR5738 MCU
Electricity and Flow Measurements:
Electricity Measurement - A high accuracy 2 phases embedded metering application using MSP430i2040 MCU.
Inductive Flow Measurement - Water Meter Reference Design for two LC Sensors, using the Extended Scan Interface (ESI) on the MSP430FR6989 MCU
Ultrasonic Flow Measurement - Ultrasonic flow meter (water, gas or heat meter) with LCD built using a Time-to-Digital converter and the MSP430FR6989 MCU
Wireless Vibration Monitor - Monitor the health of motors and machines to accurately predict and schedule maintenance (or replacement) using the MSP430FR5969 MCU and the CC2650 multi-protocol wireless MCU
System State Restoration:
Compute through power loss – Detect power loss and save system state without the need for large capacitors or a backup battery by leveraging the speed and endurance of FRAM
