Radiation Hardened Mixed-Signal Microcontroller



The MSP430™ ultra-low-power (ULP) FRAM platform combines uniquely embedded FRAM and a holistic ultra-low-power system architecture, allowing innovators to increase performance at lowered energy budgets. FRAM technology combines the speed, flexibility, and endurance of SRAM with the stability and reliability of flash at much lower power.

The ultra low-power architecture of the MSP430FR5969-SP showcases seven low-power modes, optimized to achieve power efficient distributed telemetry/housekeeping systems.

The integrated mixed-signal features of the MSP430FR5969-SP make it ideally suited for distributed telemetry applications in next-generation spacecraft. The strong immunity to single-event latchup and total ionizing dose, enable the device to be used in a variety of space and radiation environments.
