MSP-EXP430FR5969 LaunchPad development kit is the fastest and affordable solution in the ultra low power domain specifically for evaluation purposes. The evaluation module is well equipped with essential features like embedded FRAM, noted for its ultra low power consumption; high endurance and high speed write access.
MSP430FRxx FRAM platform Board has got everything for development and evaluation purposes starting from the onboard emulation for programming, debugging and energy measurement. It features the onboard LED, programmable buttons and a support of segmented LCD displaying the customizable features support of flexible software configurable pins as well as a SuperCap allowing standalone applications without external power supply. The onboard emulation for programming, debugging and energy measurement adds more advantage in handling the device smartly and effectively.
User get more flexibility by adding the booster pack support onto 20 pin dedicated for the same, this allows to expand the device supportability with features like graphical LCD, Wireless connectivity, environmental sensing and much more.
The FR5969 LaunchPad introduces the usage of EnergyTrace++TM technology for measurement of both the vital on state conditions of the CPU and its peripherals and the MCU current consumptions. This brings immediate revolution in the optimization of the ultra low power applications. Further the usage of advance MSP-FRAM UTILITIES software libraries enable the low power consumption and intelligently restore the system due to any power failure.
The out-of-box provided with the MSP-EXP430FR5969 LaunchPad features a graphical user-interface that enables two modes. The first of these modes is the live temperature mode, where data is measured using the on-chip temperature sensor of the MSP430FR5969 and streamed back to the GUI via backchannel UART. The second mode demonstrates the data logging capabilities of FRAM by disconnecting from the computer and using the on-board super capacitor for power. In this mode, the microcontroller will go to sleep and wake up at 5 second intervals to log temperature and capacitor voltage data. These values can be uploaded and graphed when reconnected to the computer.
