Developing with the MSP430FR5969 Family is now enabled by the LaunchPad ecosystem.
The MSP-BNDL-FR5969LCD (MSP-EXP430FR5969 LaunchPad Evaluation Kit with 430BOOST-SHARP96 LCD Display BoosterPack) kit is an easy-to-use Evaluation Module for the MSP430FR5969 microcontroller. It contains everything needed to start developing on a MSP430 FRAM Technology platform, including on-board emulation for programming and debugging. The board features on-board buttons and LEDs for quick integration of a simple user interface as well as a SuperCap allowing standalone RTC operation without an external power supply.
The MSP-BNDL-FR5969LCD development platform is based on the first device in the MSP430 ULP FRAM platform – the MSP430FR5969 device. The MSP430FR5969 device features embedded FRAM, a non-volatile memory known for its low power, high endurance and high speed write access. The benefits of FRAM and the ultra-low power features of this kit can be used in a wide variety of applications ranging from metering and consumer electronics to unconventionally powered sensors.
enabling technologies such as wireless connectivity, graphical displays, environmental sensing, and much more. More information about the LaunchPad, supported BoosterPacks and available resources can be found at TI’s LaunchPad portal and the LaunchPad wiki for design resources and example projects.
The out-of-box experience provided with the MSP-BNDL-FR5969 uses the MSP-EXP430FR5969 LaunchPad and the 430BOOST-SHARP96 LCD BoosterPack. The display enables a better user experience and allows developers to more easily model their end application.
The MSP-EXP430FR5969 LaunchPad and 430BOOST-SHARP96 BoosterPack are available in a bundled package from the TI eStore, with part number MSP-BNDL-FR5969LCD. The MSP-EXP430FR5969 LaunchPad is not available standalone at this time.
Free software development tools are also available, such as TI’s Eclipse-based Code Composer Studio and IAR Embedded Workbench. More information about the LaunchPad, the supported BoosterPacks and available resources can be found at TI’s LaunchPad portal and the MSP430 LaunchPad wiki for design resources and example projects.
