ULP Advisor(TM) Code Analyzing Tool -- BETA Now Available!

What is ULP Advisor?

ULP (Ultra-Low Power) Advisor is a brand new tool for guiding developers to write more efficient code to fully utilize the unique ultra-low power features of MSP430 microcontrollers.

Aimed at both experienced and new microcontroller developers, ULP Advisor checks your code against a thorough ULP checklist to squeeze every last nano amp out of your application. At build time, ULP Advisor will provide notifications and remarks to highlight areas of your code that can be further optimized for lower power.

Within these notifications, developers will get a description of the ULP rule in violation, and will also get a link to this ULP Advisor wiki for further information, links to relevant documentation, code examples and forum posts!

How do I participate in the ULP Advisor BETA?
