Hello Everyone,

I ordered the above since the eStore says 'In Stock' - it has been several days now with a status on my order:  'Pending' - so, 

Does anyone know when the Wolverine dev boards will be ready for shipment?

Thanks,
John W.

  • I called the support line - got a message - 'We are closed for a department meeting, please try again later.'

    So - if there's a TIer that can give a status on the Wolverine boards that would be great.

    Thanks,
    John W.

    Well, I received the Wolverine samples I ordered this AM - and - alas - no board to put them in!

    I received my free sample of the, XMS430FR5969IRGZR Ultra-Low Power 16-bit Micro-controller. But, I didn't realize that it wont work on my MSP-EXP430G2 LaunchPad. As, I had previously thought. I spent over an hour on the TI Site researching and I thought that it would work. But, I was wrong, it only works with the MSP430 Wolverine Board. I thought, Wolverine was the name of the XMS430FR5969IRGZR Processor. But, here I found... "The MSP-FET430U48C board is the first board you can use to evaluate Wolverines series parts.  No other board is available at the moment. However, this will not be the only Wolverine kit." From, (http://e2e.ti.com/support/microcontrollers/msp43016-bit_ultra-low_power_mcus/f/166/t/217992.aspx). But, I did Not find this page, until after I received my Sample XMS430FR5969IRGZR Processor. And from the Pictures on the XMS430FR5969IRGZR Page. I thought, from looking at the Picture (http://www.ti.com/product/msp430fr5969). That this processor was of a design, like the processors that came with the MSP-EXP430G2. And I could just plug it in to my board. But, this is not the case. So, sadly. I wont be able to Test and Review the XMS430FR5969IRGZR Ultra-Low Power 16-bit Micro-controller. I see that at least on other person may have had the same problem (link below).
