The stack pointer holds the address of the most recently added word and is automatically adjusted as the stack grows downward in memory or shrinks upward. Status register, SR: This contains a set of flags (single bits), whose functions fall into three categories. The most commonly used flags are C, Z, N, and V, which give information about the result of the last arithmetic or logical operation. The Z flag is set if the result was zero and cleared if it was nonzero, for instance. Decisions that affect the flow of control in the program can be made by testing these bits.

Many portable devices include liquid crystal displays, which the MSP430 can drive directly. • Some MSP430 devices are classed as application-specific standard products (ASSPs) and contain specialized analog hardware for various types of measurement. It is impossible to pick a single number to demonstrate the low-power consumption and great caution is needed when comparing different manufacturers’ claims. 5 mA when operating at its top speed of 16 MHz. 5 V. 2 mA if a speed of 1 MHz is acceptable.

Another feature of the MSP430 that stems from its recent introduction is that it is designed with compilers in mind. Most small microcontrollers are now programmed in C, and it is important that a compiler can produce compact, efficient code. The MSP430 has 16 registers in its CPU, which enhances efficiency because they can be used for local variables, parameters passed to subroutines, and either addresses or data. This is a typical feature of a RISC, but unlike a “pure” RISC, it can perform arithmetic directly on values in main memory.
