What embedded processors are used in the NI WSN Gateway, Router and Node products?

There's been many design patterns for WSN nodes since 1999 i.e.

What is NI's WSN solution based on?

 

Thanks,

Hello chromaburst,

 

You should take a look at this Developer Zone article.  It mentions what microcontroller is used in our WSN nodes as well as other introductory information.

 

From the linked article: "NI WSN measurement nodes are powered by a TI MSP430 microcontroller that is optimized for low-power, multiyear deployment instead of processor speed, memory, and computing power. "

Thanks David - looks like that gem was buried! As you probably know there's a whole host of variants on the TI MSP430 as described here:

http://focus.ti.com/en/multimedia/flash/selection_tools/mcu/mcu.html?DCMP=dsps_arm_102109&HQS=Other+...- very nice tool!

 

It would be good to get a definite answer on the entire product range, when you also consider these microcontrollers are usually paired with a RF transceiver, such as the CC2520.
