Ever thought of making something that could work straight for like 20 years? That too without giving much concern about performance issues. Texas Instruments’ MSP 430 is certainly one of the most effective solutions here. This micro controller has been diversely used in several applications which range from industrial to automation, need to fashion, and medical to security. Texas Instruments has made sure that this platform gets all the latest technological updates and the developer has to compromise in terms of the features that he wants his MSP based project to have. A prominent example of this is the capability of MSP to work with wireless protocols. Wi-Fi, NFC, Zigbee protocols can be easily implemented on MSP MCU platforms. Customizations in terms of packaging immensely accelerate the adaptability of this MCU. A vast catalogue exists in this series which puts it in a totally different league when compared to other mixed signal MCU platforms.
