cde 334 Posted March 7, 2013 Share Posted March 7, 2013 Just noticed this on the TI valueline list. http://www.ti.com/product/msp430g2955 Not many details, even though it's marked Active and not preview. No Datasheet, no summary. Just the specs. Key Features: 56kb Flash. 4 times the current limit. 4kb KILObyte Sram. 4096. That's EIGHT times the current valueline limit. 3 Timers (1 extra) USI AND USCI_A/B (Normally it's either/or) 8 Comparators. Not sure if this is 8 inputs to 1 Comparator, like normal, or 8 separate Comparators. ADC with 12 Channel (4 more than normal) $1.24 at 1000 units. 38 pin TSSOP It's basically blows the low level f51xx chips out of the starting gate. Cheaper, more ram and flash, better adc, extra USI peripheral. Only thing it isn't better is the processor speed, still at 16mhz compared to the f5xxx 20/25mhz. Best of all, it's a (relatively) friendly tssop package, instead of a tight pitched leadless quad pack (or even leaded quad flatpack). Every other f5xxxx chip outside of the f51xx that it beats is in a leadless or bga package. Guess TI did hear our pleas on low Flash and Ram limits. Edit: Just checked, same applies to the f2xxx series. This G2955 will beat out any Tssop (or bigger) f2xxx chip on all counts. OppaErich, RobG and bluehash 3 Quote Link to post Share on other sites
