The MSP430 microcontroller family offers ultra-low power mixed signal, 16-bit architecture that is perfect for wireless low-power industrial and portable medical applications. This book begins with an overview of embedded systems and microcontrollers followed by a comprehensive in-depth look at the MSP430. The coverage included a tour of the microcontroller's architecture and functionality along with a review of the development environment. Start using the MSP430 armed with a complete understanding of the microcontroller and what you need to get the microcontroller up and running! It includes contents such as: Embedded Electronic Systems and Microcontrollers; The Texas Instruments MSP430; Development; A Simple Tour of the MSP430; Architecture of the MSP430 Processor; Functions, Interrupts and Low-Power Modes; Digital Input, Output and Displays; Timers; Mixed-Signal Systems - Analog Input and Output; Communication; The Future - MSP430X; and, Appendices. It details C and assembly language for the MSP430. Companion Web site contains a development kit. Full coverage is given to the MSP430 instruction set, and sigma-delta analog-digital converters and timers.
