MSP430 Capacitive Touch MCUs featuring CapTIvate™ Technology Training Series

MSP430 MCUs featuring CapTIvate technology are the most noise-immune capacitive touch MCUs, and first to feature an IEC61000-4-6 certified solution. These MCUs feature the most configurable combination of buttons, wheels, sliders and proximity sensing interfaces, as well as support for metal touch, glove-proof and moisture-tolerant designs, all at the world's lowest power.

This training series details the key features of MSP430 MCUs featuring CapTIvate technology, enabling you to get started on your next great capacitive touch design and get to market more quickly.

Advanced Signal Processing on 16-bit MSP430 FRAM MCUs with Low Energy Accelerator (LEA)

This training series covers LEA or Low Energy Accelerator a vector math co-processor, the performance benchmark, and how to get started on the new MSP430FR599x. LEA is capable of performing various signal processing tasks efficiently without any CPU intervention. For example, LEA can perform a 256-point complex FFT in just ~5k cycles whereas a Cortex-M4F would take approximately 17k cycles (3.6x improvement).

Designing with Delta-Sigma ADCs: System design considerations to optimize performance

Delta-sigma analog-to-digital converters (ADCs) are oversampling converters typically used in applications requiring higher resolution. However, ADCs do not work by themselves. In fact, they require several key components around them, including a front-end amplifier, a voltage reference, a clock source, power supplies, and a good layout. Many devices integrate these features together with the ADC to offer a complete system solution, which simplifies the design for customers and minimizes board space.

Rapid prototyping training series

Rapid prototyping: Getting started with TI solutions

How many times have you said, “I would like to prototype an idea with TI silicon but I can not get software resources" or “I don’t know how to prototype/program.”

This training shows you how to get started prototyping on TI solutions with minimal or no programming, including the following tasks:

Anti-tamper Techniques to Thwart Attacks on Smart Meters

Non-technical losses (“theft”) account for billions of dollars of revenue loss for utility providers around the world as individuals are able to hack meters to slow or stop the accumulation of energy usage statistics. This loss has driven increased requirements for enhancing the protection designed into new smart meters.  This training session will discuss different methods of attacking smart meters and how TI’s analog portfolio can be used to detect or even prevent these attacks. In one scenario magnets are used to saturate any transformers present in the system.
