Texas Instruments Releases New 16-bit Microcontroller with 256KB FRAM Memory


New Microcontroller offers 40 times the performance of other MCU's with ultra low-power operation


Texas Instruments have 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 new 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 3x3 mm QFN package.

The new 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.

Click for Larger Image - Texas Instruments Releases New 16-bit Microcontroller with 256KB FRAM Memory Easily process complex algorithms with MSP430FR5994 MCUs
The new MSP430FR5994 MCUs help you save power by spending 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 memory (FRAM) 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. MSP430 MCU developers now have a path to greater signal processing performance paired with the benefits of FRAM technology for a wide range of applications such as metering, building and factory automation equipment and portable health and fitness devices.

Refresh your old 8-bit design with new MSP430FR2111 MCUs
The MSP430FR2111 MCUs allow developers to upgrade legacy 8-bit or 16-bit designs with a cutting-edge, highly integrated MCU with FRAM memory technology. Even the most cost conscious developer now has a solution that integrates a 10-bit analog-to-digital converter (ADC), EEPROM functionality, comparator, real-time clock, enhanced timers, internal oscillator with a 16-bit MCU in a tiny 3x3 mm package and a starting 1ku price of less than $0.50. With up to 50 times the RAM of comparable 8-bit MCUs thanks to unified memory, developers will no longer need to program in assembly, which will get them to market faster, simplify software maintenance and increase code portability. Additionally, the new MCUs offer seamless migration and scalability within the MSP430 MCU portfolio. Customers can move from MSP430G2x MCUs to the new MSP430FR2x MCU family with ease and then scale within the FRAM portfolio thanks to a common core architecture, tool ecosystem and easy-to-use migration guides.
