Keywords:MSP430F51x1? MSP430F51x2? Timer_D? capacitive touch detection? PWM DACs?

This application report discusses the use of the high-resolution feature of the Timer_D module introduced in MSP430F51x1 and MSP430F51x2 devices. Timer_D enables applications that require high resolution such as capacitive touch detection, PWM DACs, advanced LED lighting, and digital controllers for power supplies. This application report provides an advanced description of the use and calibration of Timer_D in high-resolution mode. The examples shown in this document refer to the data sheet of the MSP430F5172 microcontroller, but the concepts are applicable to all devices with a Timer_D module. When working with this document, refer to the device-specific data sheet for all specifications.
