Mumbai, Jun 9 (UNI) Texas Instruments India today announced the launch of ultra-low power microcontrollers, MSP430F5xx, that can aid thousands of applications in fields such as medical, security, consumer goods and home automation.
These microcontrollers will offer 50 per cent more processing performance and 100 pc improvement in memory compared to previous generations. This will help electronic equipment manufacturers to offer products that consume very little power, thereby increasing battery life and offer lower operational cost.
In a statement here, Texas Instruments India Business Development Manager Shailesh Thakurdesai said ''The Indian Analog semiconductor market is estimated to be USD 437 million by 2009. Texas Instruments India, with over 40,000 products, has the largest product portfolio to tap this growing market. We expect this new generation of microcontrollers to make a big impact in the Indian electronics industry.'' The new generation of microcontrollers will particularly help in development of portable devices across industry segments. These microcontrollers will significantly enhance the performance of devices like panel meters, 3-phase meters, UPS and inverters, LED lighting, portable ultrasound scanners, electronic thermometers, wind and solar power generators, surveillance equipment in public buildings, electronic baggage scanners and radio frequency identification devices (RFID).
