New (soon to be) valueline chip. MSP430G2955 56kb Flash 4kb Ram!

Recommended Posts

Next to the 32k/4k/ and 48k/4k devices, I'd love to see a 32k/20k device too, but I guess that's not going to happen. Depending on the application I sometimes run out of RAM quite fast. I suppose for these circumstances I'd need an MSP430FR device :)

All the information that's publicly released can be found from the release described at http://forum.43oh.com/topic/3559-information-on-upcoming-msp430-devices/

 

No I don't have any more information than that, yes I was told it was ok to release it, no I don't work for TI, and no I have no idea when any of these might become available.

well for those who act fast, digikey has 1 of these boards in stock that come with the 2955, and mouser has 2.  (digikey HAD 2... hehe)  so I should have a 2955 in my hot little hand just as soon as USPS can get it here

 

they're 90 and 100 bucks respectively... but hey, whats a cnote between friends.

They have those on the website too, but they don't come with the chip?

 

Actually, wow, two of each 2274, 2744, and 2955:

The March 2013 MCU Newsflash email that TI sends out teases "Stay Tuned for Some EXCITING MSP430 Valueline MCU news, coming March 26". Seems we got a release date for these chips. @bluehash

i recently added pin maping for msp430g2553 28pin to my energia compiler.

 

since this one is new and has more timers and stuff it's probaly not that easy has changing pin maping to use with energia right?

 

I don't know how energia files are organized. Then can someone help me adding the registers for analog pins and the new timer?

I want to change the microcontrolers of the robotics club i'm in to msp430. This new ones are excelent but altough i'm able to use code composer, the club is for beginers and it's beter for them to start in C++ istead of assembly. Energia is the best choise for msp430.

So i need to make msp430g2553 28pin and the new msp430g2955 compatible with energia.

 

btw i find interesting only having to change the pin mapping to use msp430g2553 28pin. Don't i have to add a register to other file? for the port 3.x? there aren't any in 20pdip

MSP430G2755 would be a Atmega328 ender especially if they end up making it in a DIP package.

Interesting....seems like they're gunning for the Arduino chips indeed :-)

But this also means they have to increase the flash limits of the free version of CCS right?  Does anyone know the code efficiency (flash size) taken of MSP430 vs. AtMega328 code?

thanks. i know stellaris works with adc inputs until 5V. but i don't know how.

 

another question. do i have to change anytigh else besides de pins_energia.h to make it works on energia?
