Texas Instruments Expanded Portfolio of MSP430 MCUs Available from Mouser


June 13, 2017Mouser Electronics, Inc., the industry’s leading New Product Introduction (NPI) distributor with the widest selection of semiconductors and electronic components, is now stocking the MSP430FR599x and MSP430FR596x microcontrollers, the latest MSP430™ microcontrollers from Texas Instruments (TI). The ultra-low-power, ferroelectric random access memory (FRAM) microcontroller portfolio targets a wide range of sensing and measurement applications.

The TI MSP430FR599x/MSP430FR596x microcontrollers, available from Mouser Electronics, extend the portfolio up to 256 KBytes of integrated FRAM technology, which is a non-volatile memory technology that offers excellent 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 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 256 KBytes of FRAM, allowing for expanded application code and addressing applications with large RAM requirements, all while offering write speeds 100 times faster than flash with no buffering or pre-erase required. The microcontrollers are supported by several development tools, including the MSP-EXP430FR5994 LaunchPad™ development kit, which contains everything needed to evaluate the microcontroller, including an onboard debug probe for programming, debugging, and energy measurements.


The MSP430FR599x and MSP430FR596x microcontrollers are ideal for a wide range of applications, including metering, building and factory automation equipment, and portable health and fitness devices.
