Lose power, not data with new FRAM microcontrollers


New microcontrollers, a new LaunchPad and a new software library  - all unique in their own right for the industry! Our Compute Through Power Loss (CTPL) library is part of the new MSP-FRAM-UTILITIES and now enables MSP FRAM microcontrollers to intelligently save and restore system state on power failure.

Now automation and control applications can re-start exactly where they left off when power is unexpectedly lost. In addition, the new library enables you to use our lowest power modes x.5 on all MSP430 FRAM MCUs without the increased start-up time that typically must be considered. This means battery life can be extended further than ever before!

New FRAM microcontrollers

The new CTPL embedded software library is enabled by the nearly unlimited write endurance and 100x faster writes than typical flash-based microcontrollers. What's more, our MSP430FRx FRAM microcontrollers offer advantages in terms of power consumption (see ULPBench benchmark), unmatched flexibility (unified program/data code) and increased data security. Now you have even more options to choose from. The MSP430FR6972 microcontroller and derivatives are now available for purchase and offer integration that includes a 116-segment LCD controller, a 12-bit single/differential mode ADC with internal window comparator and a 256-bit hardware AES accelerator.

Discounted LaunchPad

We also have a LaunchPad development kit to support the expansion of the MSP430FR6x/5x series of FRAM MCUs. Featuring the MSP430FR6989 MCU, our most integrated FRAM device, this LaunchPad offers a 40-pin BoosterPack plug-in module connector and an on-board LCD. You also have direct access to the extended scan interface.

Are you ready for the best part? The MSP-EXP430FR6989 LaunchPad is available for $13.99 USD for the next month only! This is more than 20 percent off the regular price.
