MSP-TS430RGZ48C: Confirm Device revision including this EVM

Guru 24520 points

Dear all,

Please let me confirm the following questions.


Regarding to the web page, this EVM is in XMS430FR5969IRG.

It seems that this device is the older sample.  Is my understanding correct?


Do you have a plan that the EVM  will change from the older device to the latest one( Mass production one)?

If possible, we would like to evaluate the latest one by using this EVM.

Please let me know if you have any question.

Best regards.


  • Samples are free, including free shipping. It is only logical that those free samples are given from the remaining older series first, before shipping the latest and best to everyone for free who can click a button on a web page.

    If you want the latest, buy one. If you still get an XMS version where a later revision was promised, then you can complain.
    It is neither illegal nor ethically incorrect to evaluate something you actually bought. :)

  • Hi Jens,

    Thank you for your advices.

    We will advise to order the device sample to the customer.

    Best regards,


  • Not order a (free) sample form TI, but buy it from TI or distributor. Samples may be from experimental or older silicon. Bought parts should never be experimental silicon, and always newest revision if directly bought form TI (some distributors may still have older revisions on stock but should tell so, and never sell experimental silicon as regular. If so, complain)
