This is my fourth post on the TI FR2xx microcontrollers that feature FRAM memory.  The links to the previous posts are at the bottom of this post.   Introduction   I saw today where the MSP-EXP430FR2433 LaunchPad has been added to Energia, a modified version of the Wiring/Arduino IDE for select Texas Instruments microcontrollers and LaunchPads.   Energia   I have used Energia quite a bit in the past and most Arduino code and libraries will run on it, or at least port ...
This is my third post on the TI FR2xx microcontrollers that feature FRAM memory.  The links to the previous posts are at the bottom of this post.   Introduction   The small breadboard breakout I designed for the FR2000 and FR2011 arrived in the mail today.  I was lucky and OshPark put my PCB alongside a rush order and I received it one week from submission - great!  I soldered it up and got it to blink without a problem - again, great!  In this post I will describ ...
Introduction I previously made a post on the MSP430FR2000 but decided to expand it into a more general series on the MSP430FR2xx family of microcontrollers.  I will aim this at people with microcontroller experience who may not be familiar with the MSP430 microcontrollers and FRAM (Ferromagnetic RAM).  In this post I will show how FRAM can retain the contents of a variable in memory for future use, even if power is lost.   The FR2xx series is a relatively low cost line with memo ...
Introduction This is my first look at the Texas Instruments MSP430FR2000 microcontroller.  It got my attention because of this recent post at Texas Instruments:  http:/
ewscenter.ti.com/2017-11-08-Texas-Instruments-offers-25-functions-for-25-cents-with-new-MSP430-TM-microcontrollers Twenty five functions for 25 cents sounds pretty good but be aware that if you are a hobbyist buying in small quantities you won’t be able to get these MCUs for anywhere near 25 cents.  However, ...
