  • Realizing Ubiquitous Wireless Connectivity with the World’s Lowest Power Microcontroller

    Wireless Connectivity is the overarching macro trend in technology of the 21st century. In today’s world of portable, battery-operated devices, wireless connectivity coupled with ultra-low power consumption is becoming increasingly important. From protocol and application processing to systems and power monitoring, microcontrollers play many key roles in wireless systems.

    This seminar is the second of a series from Texas Instruments to review the industry trends and solutions surrounding zero to low power consumption in embedded system designs. This webinar will focus on specific application studies around wireless connectivity and wireless sensor network solutions. TI’s MSP430 microcontroller platform of ultra-low power 16-bit RISC mixed-signal processors offers a wide range of single chip and two-chip low power, portable solutions for several wireless connectivity applications.

    The session will also cover helpful RF design features of the new MSP430-based sub-1GHz RF system on chip – the CC430. In addition, the speakers will outline how to use robust design support, technical documents, training, tools, and software to drive MSP430 ultra-low power microcontroller-based solutions in RF designs.

    This webinar is part of a series on Embedded Control Systems. For information about the recorded archive for this event contact Xtalks at (416) 977-6555 ext 371, or email register@xtalks.com
