FRAM microcontroller range from Texas Instruments is available from Mouser
Adding to its new product introduction (NPI) programme, Mouser has added the expanded portfolio of MSP430 microcontrollers (MCUs) from Texas Instruments.
Mouser claims to offer the widest selection of semiconductors and electronic components. The distributor is now stocking the MSP430FR599x and MSP430FR596x microcontrollers, the latest MSP430 microcontrollers from Texas Instruments (TI). The low-power, ferroelectric random access memory (FRAM) microcontroller portfolio targets a wide range of sensing and measurement applications.
The TI MSP430FR599x and MSP430FR596x microcontrollers extend the portfolio available from Mouser up to 256kbytes of non-volatile, integrated FRAM technology.
Additionally, the MSP430 FRAM ecosystem includes thousands of existing software libraries, application notes, and driver framework to simplify development across the portfolio, says Mouser.
The microcontrollers help designers save power by spending more time in standby thanks to the newly integrated low-energy accelerator (LEA) for digital signal processing (DSP), which completes complex math functions nearly 40 times faster than other low-power microcontrollers. The microcontrollers feature up to 256kbytes of FRAM, allowing for expanded application code and addressing applications with large RAM requirements, while offering write speeds 100 times faster than flash with no buffering or pre-erase required.
The MSP430FR599x and MSP430FR596x microcontrollers are supported by several development tools, including the MSP-EXP430FR5994 LaunchPad development kit, which contains everything needed to evaluate the microcontroller, including an on-board debug probe for programming, debugging, and energy measurements.
The MSP430FR599x and MSP430FR596x microcontrollers are suitable for a range of applications, including metering, building and factory automation equipment, and portable health and fitness devices.
