Texas Instruments has launched 64 ultra-low-power MSP430 Value Line microcontrollers (MCUs) that are said to offer 16-bit performance at an 8-bit price.

The MSP430G2xx2 MCUs include integrated capacitive touch I/Os, allowing developers to interface directly with capacitive touch pads, eliminating the need for additional hardware and components.

In addition, the MSP430 MCU Value Line expansion provides extra package and memory options, providing developers with increased design flexibility.

Supported by Texas Instruments' Launchpad development kit, free software and broad third-party support network, the G2xx2 MCUs are said to enable an easy upgrade to 16-bit performance while maintaining the ultra-low Value Line price.

The G2xx2 MCUs feature increased memory ranges of up to 8KB Flash to support more advanced applications.

Additional package options with increased pin counts (20-pin TSSOP and PDIP) offer more flexibility when programming and designing form factors.

Other features include: optimised efficiency with ultra-low standby power of 0.4microamps and UART, comparator and serial communication; supported by complete hardware and software development environment with free, downloadable software debuggers and compilers, including Code Composer Studio IDE and IAR Embedded Workbench and Launchpad development kit; code compatible across MSP430 platform providing easy migration path for added scalability.
