The MSP-BNDL-FR5969LCD (MSP-EXP430FR5969 LaunchPad Evaluation Kit with 430BOOST-SHARP96 LCD Display BoosterPack) kit is an easy-to-use Evaluation Module for the MSP430FR5969 microcontroller. It contains everything needed to start developing on a MSP430 FRAM Technology platform, including on-board emulation for programming and debugging. The board features on-board buttons and LEDs for quick integration of a simple user interface as well as a SuperCap allowing standalone RTC operation without an external power supply.
The MSP-BNDL-FR5969LCD development platform is based on the first device in the MSP430 ULP FRAM platform – the MSP430FR5969 device. The MSP430FR5969 device features embedded FRAM, a non-volatile memory known for its low power, high endurance and high speed write access. The benefits of FRAM and the ultra-low power features of this kit can be used in a wide variety of applications ranging from metering and consumer electronics to unconventionally powered sensors.
Free software development tools are also available, such as TI’s Eclipse-based Code Composer Studio and IAR Embedded Workbench.
