TI Demonstrates Ultra-Low Power MCU Advancements During 4th Annual MSP430 Advanced Technical Conference

Oct 10, 2005


Attendees of the 2005 Texas Instruments (TI) (NYSE: TXN) MSP430 Advanced Technical Conference (ATC) will be the first to learn the latest MSP430 ultra-low power microcontroller (MCU) technology and expand their MCU design expertise through a choice of over 50 challenging courses. As battery-powered, portable consumer and industrial applications become more sophisticated and power requirements outpace industry progress in battery capacity technology, developers increasingly leverage TI MSP430 MCUs to advance their portable power management capabilities. ATC attendees will experience the MSP430 through hands-on labs and in-depth technical seminars and will collaborate with MSP430 MCU technology experts, including senior applications, silicon designers, customers and third parties to learn tips and tricks to aid their designs. At the US ATC location, NASA astronaut, Don Petit, will address attendees on the opening day. For ATC course details and registration information, please see www.ti.com/atc05.

When & Where:

• US: November 1-3, 2005 in Dallas, Texas
• Europe: December 6-8, 2005 in Landshut, Germany
• Asia: November 15 in Taipei and November 17 in Hangzhou, China

Conference Activities:

In addition to technical sessions and labs, new 14-pin, 4x4mm footprint MSP430F20xx devices (www.ti.com/msp430expansion) will be featured along with soon-to-be announced first devices in a family of enhanced MSP43FG46xx processors that include a 1MB memory model. Additionally, ATC provides the opportunity to mix and mingle with MSP430 customers for an insider view into the low power MCU market and industry hot topics.


The registration rate is $595 in the US, 795 EURO in Europe and RMB240 or NT$950 in Asia which includes accommodation and meals (when applicable). Attendees will also receive a SoftBaugh D4270 demo board. For more details, see www.ti.com/atc05.
