This reference design demonstrates the configurable integrated analog of a MSP430™ FRAM microcontroller (MCU) for sensing and measurement applications. This specific design integrates drive of an infrared LED and simultaneous sensing of an IR receiver useful in a variety of sensor use-cases. As an example implementation, this photoelectric IR reflection solution demonstrates the MCU’s ultra-lowpower features with the benefit of FRAM technology and integrated transimpedance amplifier (TIA). A single CR123 battery provides power to the board to make it work more than 10 years.
