The MSP-EXP430FR2311 LaunchPad Development Kit is an easy-to-use microcontroller development board for the MSP430FR2311 MCU. It contains everything needed to start developing quickly on the MSP430FR2x FRAM platform, including on-board emulation for programming, debugging and Energy Measurements. The board features on-board buttons and LEDs for integration of a simple user interface and a Optical Sensor interface to get started with your development. The kit comes with a pre-programmed code for testing the light intensity and use of integrated Op-Amp.
The MSP430FR2311 MCU device is the world’s first MCU with a configurable low-leakage current sense amplifier, with 50 pA current leakage and 4 KB 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 has integrated Smart Analog Features (integrated Op-Amp, Comparator, DAC and ADC) to help connect a variety of industrial sensors enabling single chip implementation for most sensing applications. Rapid prototyping is simplified by the 20-pin BoosterPack headers and a wide range of BoosterPack™ Plug-in Module enabling technologies such as wireless connectivity, graphical displays, environmental sensing, and much more.
The MSP-EXP430FR2311 is based on experimental silicon. The MSP430FR2311IPW20 device used in this version of the MSP-EXP430FR2311 is a prototype device and has not met or completed Texas Instruments internal reliability qualification requirements. The device used in this development kit is for prototyping purposes only and not intended to be used in production systems. Therefore, device is used on an “as is” basis and Texas Instruments makes no warranty of fitness for a specific purpose.
