Scale from value line to high performance with TI's new unified memory 16-bit microcontrollers (MCUs)

Texas Instruments (TI) (NASDAQ: TXN) today expanded its ultra-low-power MSP430FRAM 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.”
