Texas Instruments anounces new F563x and F663x MSP430 microcontrollers.

Posted on Thursday, December 8th, 2011 in MSP430, new parts by DP

Texas Instruments just announced the addition of F563X and F663X lines of microcontrollers to their MSP430 range. Here is the feature list of the new devices:

  • More memory options with 256kB flash and 18kB RAM allow the addition of wireless stacks, more application features, richer graphical user interfaces (GUI) and the addition of a real-time operating system (RTOS) to handle multiple tasks depending on the application design
  • Increased memory makes multiple USB APIs possible, providing more connectivity options and faster ramp to production when combined with TI’s free software in the USB Developer’s Package
  • The F663x family’s integrated 160-segment LCD controller offers increased performance and eliminates the need for external LCD control, reducing the overall bill of materials (BOM)
  • High-performance analog peripherals, including 12-bit analog-to-digital (ADC) and digital-to-analog (DAC) converters provide high-resolution sensor measurements and enable two-way, real-world interface options
  • Ultra-low standby power as low as 1.8 uA and fast wake-up in 3 us offer optimized efficiency

    160-segment LCD controller ? Nice, is it possible to use some kind of darlington array or something to use it to drive LED segments ?

    And their Code Composer Studio tool will probably keep supporting only 16KB code for their free version.

    Way to go TI!
