MSP430F5437A: About Vcore connections

Part Number: MSP430F5437A

Hello,

I'd like to ask if the following connection of Vcore(MSP430F5437A pin#49) is correct. Please refer to the picture.

VCORE doesn't look like being connected correctly. The datasheet says as follows:

CVCORE : Recommended capacitor at VCORE 470nF.

All voltages referenced to VSS. VCORE is for internal device use only. No external DC loading or voltage should be applied.

Can you please check and give us an advice?

Thanks, HJ.

  • Hello HJ,

    Your interpretation of the datasheet is correct, the circuit connection for VCORE pictured above is incorrect. The only connection that should be present on the VCORE pin is a capacitor to ground as is referenced in your post.

    Best regards,

    Matt
