Part Number: MSP430F6736A
I am working on power measurement project and using MCU having part number "MSP430F6736AIPNR" of 80-Pin package.
I can see there is difference in power Pin as well so wanted to verify our schematic with respect to power pin and its decoupling. Please cross check and share your valuable feedback on this.
Please see my notes below.

In reply to Eddie LaCost:
Thanks for your valuable feedback. I agree on all points and updated same in attached latest schematic. please check and review this.
One Query i have, I was checking reference schematic and i found that AUXVCC3 is not powered externally, it is just connected with VDSYS and DVSYS. Why is it not connected with external power source?
I am referring "TIDR106" schematic. Please clarify this.
In reply to SUMIT RANJAN:
See table 1 in the users guide for that design below. The design includes a jumper on AUXVCC3 which can be removed and external voltage applied if needed.
The schematic looks better now.
Do i need to conenct AUXVCC1 and AUXVCC2 with external voltage or just with cap it is ok?
As per table looks like there should be either external voltage or it should be with GND. This is confusion for me, can you please clarify more in details.
If you are using the AUXVCCx functionality, then you should use an external voltage. If not using AUXVCCx, it should be grounded. The reference design uses jumpers to allow for either functionality.
I am really confused. You mentioned AUXVCCx but in my design which i shared in that AUXVCC3 is only powered externally and rest two AUXVCC1 and AUXVCC2 is terminated with decap.
It is not grounded and nor used with external supply. I am not planning to use auxiliary power system so on AUXVCC1 and AUXVCC2 it should be connected with GND or with decap only?
Please update on this. And update on schematic, That is right or need some modification?
I recommend following the SLAA517E application report. If the AUX pins are unused, they should be grounded.
