ANT MCU family from Dynastream Innovations based on the well known MSP430 series from Texas Instruments. It is to pair with the nRF24L01+ or nRF24L01 radio IC from Nordic semiconductor forming the AT3 chipset family. By far, this chipset family still delivers the best power consumption performance and is good for applications that absolutely demand low power operations. Popular option: ANTFTR2282   

Up to 8 channels. sensRcore available on certain options. QFN 6x6.
