3-Pin MSP430?

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to remember if TI has a 3-Pin version of the MSP430.

 

I thought I heard or read that somewhere but I can't find the info anymore.

 

Has anyone heard of this too?

3-pin? No. But 4 pins is possible. Vcc, Vss, RST, and TEST are needed to program the Flash.

After programming the Flash, you could cut RST and TEST too and get a 2-pin "functional" chip!

The "function" is to sense Vcc and Temperature and transmit them to a near by radio.

I did that without connecting anything to any Port Pins. But I have not tried actually cutting off those pins,
