MSP43FG461x Series of microcontrollers is the first to incorporate MSP430x architecture with an extended 1 MB memory model, allowing access to 16 times more memory than the 64 KB available today. Extended addressing modes designed for the large memory allow optimal high-level code density with backward compatibility and make it possible to develop sophisticated real-time applications in modular C libraries. Higher C-code density and faster execution is achieved reducing the number of cycles up to 25% when addressing peripherals, flash, or RAM, and more than 50% for a full context store. MSP43FG461x MCU Series includes up to 120 KB of flash and up to 8 KB RAM to provide a complete signal chain on chip (SCoC) solution for portable devices that require highly integrated intelligent peripherals and larger memory options on one chip.
