Texas Instruments  MSP-EXP430FR2311

The MSP-EXP430FR2311 LaunchPad™ development kit is an easy-to-use microcontroller development board for MSP430FR2000, MSP430FR21xx and MSP430FR23xx MCUs. It contains everything needed to start developing quickly including on-board emulation for programming, debugging and energy measurements. The board features on-board buttons and LEDs for integration of a simple user interface and an optical sensor interface to get started with your development. The kit comes with pre-programmed code for testing the light intensity and use of integrated op-amp on the MSP430FR2311 MCU.


The MSP430FR2311 MCU included on the LaunchPad kit is the world’s first MCU with a configurable low-leakage transimpedance amplifier (TIA), with 50 pA current leakage and 4KB of FRAM unified memory. The device also has integrated smart analog features (integrated op-amp, comparator and ADC) to help connect a variety of industrial sensors enabling a single-chip implementation for many sensing applications. Rapid prototyping is simplified by the 20-pin BoosterPack™ headers and a wide range of BoosterPack plug-in modules to add more features and functionality.


The MSP-EXP430FR2311 is based on experimental silicon. The MSP430FR2311IPW20 device used in this version of the MSP-EXP430FR2311 is a prototype device and has not met or completed Texas Instruments internal reliability qualification requirements. The device used in this development kit is for prototyping purposes only and not intended to be used in production systems. Therefore, device is used on an “as is” basis and Texas Instruments makes no warranty of fitness for a specific purpose.
