    • On-board micro SD Card
    • Super Capacitor (0.22 F)

    The MSP-EXP430FR5994 LaunchPad Development Kit is an easy-to-use Evaluation Module (EVM) for the MSP430FR5994 microcontroller (MCU). It contains everything needed to start developing on the ultra-low-power MSP430FRx FRAM microcontroller platform, including on-board debug probe for programming, debugging and energy measurements. The board features on-board buttons and LEDs for quick integration of a simple user interface as well as an SD card port allowing the user to interface with SD cards, as well as a super capacitor (super cap) that enables standalone applications without an external power supply.

    The MSP430FR5994 device features 256KB of embedded FRAM (Ferroelectric Random Access Memory), a non-volatile memory known for its ultra-low power, high endurance, and high speed write access. The device also features 8 KB of SRAM, supports CPU speeds of up to 16MHz and has integrated peripherals for communication, ADC, timers, AES encryption, Low-Energy Accelerator (LEA), a new hardware module to the FRAM family, designed for fast, efficient and low-power vector math and more – plenty to get you started in your development.

    Rapid prototyping is simplified by the 40-pin BoosterPack™ Plug-in Module headers, which support a wide range of available BoosterPacks. You can quickly add features like wireless connectivity, graphical displays, environmental sensing, and much more. Design your own BoosterPack or choose among many already available from TI and third party developers.

    Free software development tools are also available, such as TI’s Eclipse-based Code Composer Studio (CCS) and IAR Embedded Workbench. Both of these IDEs support EnergyTrace++™ technology for real-time power profiling and debugging when paired with the MSP430FR5994 LaunchPad.
