MSP430FR6989 LaunchPad Development Kit


Detailed Description


The TI MSP430FR698x and MSP430FR598x families of ultra-low-power microcontrollers consists of several devices featuring different sets of peripherals. The architecture, combined with seven low-power modes, is optimized to achieve extended battery life for example in flow metering applications. The devices features a powerful 16-bit RISC CPU, 16-bit registers, and constant generators that contribute to maximum code efficiency.


The MSP430FR698x and MSP430FR598x devices are microcontroller configurations with an extended scan interface (ESI) for background water, heat and gas volume metering together with up to five 16-bit timers, a comparator, eUSCIs that support UART, SPI, and I2C, a hardware multiplier, an AES accelerator, DMA, an RTC module with alarm capabilities, up to 83 I/O pins, and a high-performance 12bit ADC. The MSP430FR698x devices also include an LCD module with contrast control for displays with up to 320 segments.



The MSP430 CPU has a 16-bit RISC architecture that is highly transparent to the application. All operations, other than program-flow instructions, are performed as register operations in conjunction with seven addressing modes for source operand and four addressing modes for destination operand.


The CPU is integrated with 16 registers that provide reduced instruction execution time. The register-toregister operation execution time is one cycle of the CPU clock.


Four of the registers, R0 to R3, are dedicated as program counter, stack pointer, status register, and constant generator, respectively. The remaining registers are general-purpose registers.


Peripherals are connected to the CPU using data, address, and control buses. Peripherals can be managed with all instructions.The instruction set consists of the original 51 instructions with three formats and seven address modes and additional instructions for the expanded address range. Each instruction can operate on word and byte data.
