MSP430 Low Power Consumption Principle

  • The MSP430 series single-chip microcomputer is a 16-bit ultra-low power consumption mixed signal processor (Mixed Signal Processor) with a reduced instruction set (RISC) that Texas Instruments (TI) began to market in 1996.

    The MSP430 single-chip microcomputer is called a mixed-signal processor because it integrates multiple analog circuits, digital circuit modules and microprocessors with different functions on one chip to provide a "single-chip microcomputer" solution for practical application requirements. This series of microcontrollers are mostly used in portable instruments that require battery power.
