  • Did you miss the recent webinar with Element14 about Ultra-low-power design and debug using the MSP430FR5969 LaunchPad ? It covers a breakdown of the new MSP430FR5969 FRAM microcontroller , the LaunchPad, related BoosterPacks (i.e. Wi-Fi, Sub-1GHz, LCD...
  • Planetary Resources is pushing the boundaries of resource mining by reaching out, just a little further to the asteroids that have orbits close to Earth. We know of nearly 11,000 near-Earth asteroids in our Solar System, and thousands more are discovered...
  • Near Field Communication is still a fairly new technology, but paired with MSP430 microcontrollers, it unlocks the doors (pun intended) to a number of applications. In addition to access control, the new Field Powered NFC Reference Design (TIDA-00217...
  • Summer has arrived along with the sunshine and vacations that come with it! So how can MSP430 microcontrollers make it even better? Let’s look at a few examples: It’s time the shade came to you In Texas, it can get a bit warm out to...
  • Sometimes the right tool for the job is under your nose, or has been around for several years – you just didn’t know it. We’d like to expose you to some great technology you may not be aware of. For any application where you require...
  • Last week we gave you a glimpse at the MSP430FR5969 LaunchPad . It features the recently released MSP430FR5969 MCU with integrated non-volatile FRAM memory technology...and it just so happens to be the lowest power in the industry! We have an upcoming...
  • Are you interested in a training about your new MSP430FR5969 LaunchPad Development Kit (MSP-EXP430FR5969) ? Do you want to see how this LaunchPad stacks up to the rest before you make the move to our new MSP430 FRAM MCU platform? Are you thrilled to see...
  • Over the past couple weeks you may have heard rumblings about the new MSP430FR59x microcontrollers (MCUs) now available from Texas Instruments. These are the lowest-power microcontrollers in the world and offer a whole host of integrated analog and digital...
  • This post was contributed by Blessing Osakue - MCU Product Marketing Our new MSP430FRx ultra-low-power FRAM microcontrollers (MCUs) take development to a new level. They are the first to integrate FRAM technology ; solving traditional problems encountered...
  • With the release of EnergyTrace Technology and the MSP430FR59/FR69 devices , it is easier than ever before to minimize the power consumed by your microcontroller. What you may not realize, is that sometimes an ultra-low-power MCU and optimized software...
