Other Parts Discussed in Thread: MSP-TS430PZ100AUSB, MSP-FET
I am considering a new design featuring a TI MCU with USB. The current design features a msp430f559 and was wondering about the possibility of replacing it by the newer msp430fg6626. However, some questions come to my mind:
1) Regarding hardware, is there any development launchpad available for this family? Don't mind if it is a MCU slightly different to fg6626. Otherwise I read we could use MSP-TS430PZ100AUSB development board. How does this differ from a Launchpad, do we need an external programmer?
2) Regarding software, what are the programming possibilities of this fg6626? I am guessing full baremetal and driverlib support. Is the part fully supported by TI-RTOS as MSP432 is?
3) Regarding logistics, I noticed there are few units of msp430fg6626 available (digikey). Is there a particular reason for this? Is this part somehow reaching any kind of end-of-life? This part was released in 2018.
Well, please let me know what you think about the 3 questions.
Be safe and have a nice day!
