Day 5 of sampling the ultra-low-power MSP430FR6972 FRAM microcontroller and we have our final use-case to explain the value of the scalable FRAM MCU portfolio.
Beyond reducing energy, enabling smarter systems, connecting devices, and increasing security, there is another key area where a scalable portfolio can add value: SIZE. More and more applications are requiring both reduced form factors of microcontrollers and of the full system itself. Some examples include implantable drug delivery systems, or wearable electronics. While not quite on the same scale, both of these examples require efficient design and minimal footprints to meet the needs of consumers.
The MSP430 FRAM microcontroller portfolio offers over 100 options that include several package types and integrated analog and digital peripherals that can help reduce system size. The MSP430FR5738 MCU solves the problem in a more traditional way. It is available in a Die-Size BGA package (DSBGA), which has a very small 2mm x 2mm form-factor.
Another way to reduce size is to look at the system as a whole. Our more full-featured microcontrollers like the MSP430FR6972 MCU, offer a plethora of integrated components that can minimize the size of the complete system. These peripherals include:
All MSP430FRx MCUs enable some level of integration, but a full family of microcontrollers means you can expand the functionality of your products with at a minimized cost to your development.
