Extend Battery Life With TI's First MSP430™ 5xx Microcontrollers Featuring Independent 1.8V IO Supply Rail For Simplified Co-processor Design

Additional features and benefits of the MSP430F521x/F522x microcontrollers

  • Bridge between application processor and other technologies, including sensors, keyboards, radio frequency (RF), Bluetooth® low energy (BLE) technology and Wi-Fi®, eliminating the need for expensive level shifting circuits to translate 1.8V signals to 3.6V signals, saving size, cost and power.
  • Active power at 290uA/MHz in Flash and 150uA/MHz in RAM, standby mode at 1.4uA and ultra-fast wakeup at 3.5us for ultra-low-power consumption.
  • Low-power peripherals including comparator, multiple communication interfaces (UART, I2C, SPI, GPIO), real time clock (RTC) module, 10-bit analog-to-digital converter (ADC) and multiple 16-bit timers.
  • Multiple package sizes offer versatility with 48- and 64-pin QFN, 80-pin BGA options with up to 128k memory and a 3.5mmx3.5mm YFF package (available in 1Q13), enabling small footprint in portable computing applications.
