TI’s introduces a new rapid prototyping device on experimental scale, which means developers can test and design many varied prototypes with no scope for ready to market final production phase. It supports the attest new generation MSP430 microcontroller with integrated Ferroelectric Random Access Memory (FRAM). The latest MSP430 devices are industries newest low power consumption device with capability of quick data read/write with expandable memory support.
Due to such features board finds enormous application in energy harvesting, wireless application, automatic metering infrastructure and many more. Many compatible add-ons board find great usage for developing industrial standard application, such as CC2520EMK, a wireless evaluation module.
MSP430FR5739 device is an experimenter platform which required power and debug source through integrated ez430Emulator or TI Flash emulation tool.
