Ideal in applications where the majority of the microcontroller life is spent in standby. The latest FRAM microcontrollers offer unique system advantages with unified memory, unlimited endurance and ultra-fast non-volatile writes.

The perfect choice for mostly ‘on' battery powered applications needing significant compute requirements. The new MSP432 microcontrollers in this family are 32-bit microcontrollers offering higher performance with a standardized ARM® core .

Lose power, not data, with revolutionary Compute Through Power Loss (CTPL) technology.

  • Enables instantaneous wakeup with system-state restoration after a power failure
  • Available for MSP430FRx MCUs
