SLAS740A January 2013 – October 2015 RF430F5978
TI offers an extensive line of development tools, including tools to evaluate the performance of the processors, generate code, develop algorithm implementations, and fully integrate and debug software and hardware modules. The tool's support documentation is electronically available within the Code Composer Studio™ Integrated Development Environment (IDE).
The following products support development of the RF430F5978 device applications:
Software Development Tools: Code Composer Studio Integrated Development Environment (IDE): including Editor C/C++/Assembly Code Generation, and Debug plus additional development tools.
Hardware Development Tools: For a complete listing of development-support tools for the RF430F5978 platform, visit the TI website at www.ti.com. For information on pricing and availability, contact the nearest TI field sales office or authorized distributor.
To designate the stages in the product development cycle, TI assigns prefixes to the part numbers of all RF430 MCU devices and support tools. Each commercial family member has one of three prefixes: RF, P, or X (for example, RF430F5978). TI recommends two of three possible prefix designators for its support tools: RF and X. These prefixes represent evolutionary stages of product development from engineering prototypes (with X for devices and tools) through fully qualified production devices and tools (with RF for devices tools).
Device development evolutionary flow:
X – Experimental device that is not necessarily representative of the electrical specifications of the final device
P – Silicon die that conforms to the electrical specifications of the final device but has not completed quality and reliability verification
RF – Fully qualified production device
Support tool development evolutionary flow:
X – Development-support product that has not yet completed TI's internal qualification testing.
RF – Fully-qualified development-support product
X and P devices and X development-support tools are shipped against the following disclaimer:
"Developmental product is intended for internal evaluation purposes."
RF devices and RF development-support tools have been characterized fully, and the quality and reliability of the device have been demonstrated fully. TI's standard warranty applies.
Predictions show that prototype devices (X and P) have a greater failure rate than the standard production devices. TI recommends that these devices not be used in any production system because their expected end-use failure rate still is undefined. Only qualified production devices are to be used.
TI device nomenclature also includes a suffix with the device family name. This suffix indicates the package type (for example, RGC) and temperature range (for example, I). Figure 8-1 provides a legend for reading the complete device name for any family member.

This integrated circuit can be damaged by ESD. Texas Instruments recommends that all integrated circuits be handled with appropriate precautions. Failure to observe proper handling and installation procedures can cause damage.
ESD damage can range from subtle performance degradation to complete device failure. Precision integrated circuits may be more susceptible to damage because very small parametric changes could cause the device not to meet its published specifications.
