Additionally, the on-chip FRAM allows data retention in all power modes, supports more than 100 trillion write cycles, and delivers a new dimension of flexibility by allowing developers to partition data and programming memory with changes in software.

The FR57xx series eliminates existing power consumption and write endurance barriers, enabling developers to make the world smarter with more cost-efficient data logging, remote sensing and wireless update capabilities in new products that do more and last longer.

The new MSP430FR57xx microcontrollers start at $1.20 at 10K units, and samples and tools are immediately available. The MSP-EXP430FR5739 Experimenter’s Kit is $29. The MSP-TS430RHA40A Development Kit is $99.
