the reason I’m askiing is I’ve been a principal on TinyOS and have been supporting the MSP430 (and its more modern variants). The main project I’m using it on is a mammal tag and have been thinking of moving to RIOT.
When you say MSP430 does that include the CC430 that has the
Yes, it does. The cc430 is a MSP430 MCU.
How similar is the CC430 compared to a MSP430 and CC1101? Are they 100%
It's a long time since I worked with this SoC, but IIRC the main difference is
that you can control the CC11X1 by writing directly into its registers on the
cc430, while accessing it through SPI and GPIO in the non-SoC case.
