Ultra-low-power FRAM technology now joins the LaunchPad family.

The MSP-EXP430FR5969 LaunchPad Development Kit is an easy-to-use microcontroller development board for the MSP430FR5969 MCU. It contains everything needed to start developing quickly on the MSP430FRxx FRAM platform, 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 as well as a SuperCap allowing standalone applications without external power supply. The MSP430FR5969 microcontroller features embedded FRAM (Ferroelectric Random Access Memory), a non-volatile memory known for its ultra-low power, high endurance and high-speed write capabilities. Rapid prototyping is a snap thanks to 20-pin headers and a wide range of BoosterPack plug-in modules enabling technologies such as wireless connectivity, graphical displays, environmental sensing, and much more.

The FR5969 LaunchPad also enables the use of EnergyTrace++™ technology for measuring MCU current, while tracking both CPU and peripheral states. This technology brings optimization for ultra-low-power applications to a whole new level. Furthermore, software libraries such as the MSP-FRAM-UTILITIES are available to enable lower power consumption and intelligent system state restoration after power failure on FRAM microcontrollers.

The out-of-box provided with the MSP-EXP430FR5969 LaunchPad features a graphical user-interface that enables two modes. The first of these modes is the live temperature mode, where data is measured using the on-chip temperature sensor of the MSP430FR5969 and streamed back to the GUI via backchannel UART. The second mode demonstrates the data logging capabilities of FRAM by disconnecting from the computer and using the on-board super capacitor for power. In this mode, the microcontroller will go to sleep and wake up at 5 second intervals to log temperature and capacitor voltage data. These values can be uploaded and graphed when reconnected to the computer.

The MSP-EXP430FR5969 LaunchPad is also available bundled with the 430BOOST-SHARP96 Dot Matrix Memory LCD BoosterPack on the TI Store. 

You can browse all documentation online with TI Resource Explorer and start development with the online CCS Cloud IDE. Other professional development environments are also available, such as TI's Eclipse-based Code Composer Studio and IAR Embedded Workbench.

More information about the LaunchPad, as well as supported BoosterPacks, can be found at the TI LaunchPad website.
