TI MSP-EXP430FR5969 LaunchPad Evaluation Kit now at Mouser

Mouser Electronics is now stocking the MSP-EXP430FR5969 LaunchPad Evaluation Kit from Texas Instruments (TI). This new TI LaunchPad is an easy-to-use rapid-prototyping kit for TI's MSP430FR5969 microcontroller featuring 64KBytes of FRAM (Ferroelectric Random Access Memory). FRAM is a non-volatile memory known for its low power, high endurance, and fast write access. The onboard MSP430FR5969 16-bit microcontroller supports speeds up to 16MHz and has integrated peripherals for communication, ADC, timers, and AES encryption.

The TI MSP-EXP430FR5969 LaunchPad Evaluation Kit provides a simple user interface through on-board buttons and LEDs, and includes a 0.1mF super capacitor (SuperCap) that allows standalone applications to operate without an external power supply. The user interface enables two modes: the first mode is a live temperature mode, where data is measured using the on-chip temperature sensor of the MCU and streamed back to the user interface through the backchannel UART. The second mode demonstrates the data logging capabilities of the MCUs' 64KB of embedded, non-volatile FRAM, by disconnecting it from the computer and using the on-board super capacitor for power. The included 16-bit MSP430FR5969 MCU supports CPU speeds up to 16MHz, and has integrated peripherals for communication, ADC, timers, AES encryption and more.

Additional features of the MSP-EXP430FR5969 LaunchPad Kit include an onboard eZ-FET emulation with EnergyTrace++ Technology that enables developers to analyse power consumption down to 5nA resolution in real time for each peripheral. To allow for rapid prototyping, the kit also features a 20-pin LaunchPad standard that leverages the BoosterPack ecosystem. TI's BoosterPack enables technologies such as wireless connectivity, graphical displays, and environmental sensing.

The MSP-EXP430FR5969 LaunchPad Development Kit includes the MSP-EXP430FR5969 evaluation board, a micro USB cable and a quick start guide. The evaluation kit, combined with the MSP430FR5969 microcontroller, gives designers the freedom to develop for a variety of ultra-low-power applications, ranging from metering, wearable electronics, consumer electronics, the Internet of Things (IoT), industrial and remote sensors, home automation and energy harvesting.

Free software development tools are also available for the MSP-EXP430FR5969, such as the Eclipse-based Code Composer Studio and IAR Embedded Workbench, through the Texas Instruments website.
