My Favorite Company

Texas Instruments is one of the easiest companies to work with, besides having some of the best products when it comes to power efficiency, they provide excellent recourses to complete a design. This includes background information, application reports, and most of the time helpful technical support. The company webpage is easy to browse for components that you need, and after you select one, the sample usually arrives the next day. TI has a huge inventory of useful ultra-low power components, such as temperature sensors, but the one that stands out the most is its MSP430 family of microcontrollers. These devices should be considered in any embedded system. However, there is one drawback for inexperienced developers. Besides the great resources TI offers, this family of microcontrollers has very limited external recourses such as books. I found that the books that do exist are simply a reorganization of TI’s user guides. Nevertheless these microcontrollers are a safe bet for a power efficient design, especially when coupled with design expertise.
