TI’s unified memory 16-bit microcontrollers scale from value line to high performance



Texas Instruments has expanded its ultra-low-power MSP430 FRAM microcontroller (MCU) portfolio with two new low-power families targeting a wide range of sensing and measurement applications. The families include:
• MSP430FR5994 MCUs with 256KB FRAM and 40 times the performance of other low-power MCUs providing developers digital signal processing (DSP) capabilities with a new and easy-to-use integrated low energy accelerator (LEA).
• MSP430FR2111 MCUs to upgrade your 8-bit designs with the expanded TI MCU Value Line portfolio and the first to include unified FRAM memory in a small 3×3 mm QFN package.
The MCUs extend the portfolio from 2KB to 256KB of integrated ferroelectric random access memory (FRAM) technology, which is a non-volatile memory technology that offers unmatched flexibility and ultra-low power performance. Additionally, the MSP430 FRAM ecosystem includes thousands of existing software libraries, application notes and driver framework to simplify development across the portfolio.

The MSP430FR5994 MCUs spend more time in standby thanks to the newly integrated low-energy accelerator (LEA) for signal processing which completes fast Fourier transforms (FFTs), finite impulse response (FIR) and infinite impulse response (IIR) filters and other math functions nearly 40 times faster than an ARM Cortex-M0+ microcontroller. 256KB of unified FRAM memory allows for expanded application code, and addresses applications with large RAM requirements, all while offering write speeds 100 times faster than Flash with no buffering or pre-erase required.
The LEA module provides an optimized DSP library with support for more than 50 math functions and a plug-and-play design that allows developers to unbox our MSP430FR5994 MCU LaunchPad development kit and start processing complex math algorithms in less than five minutes.
