TI has a new launchpad MSP430FR5994 LaunchPad Development Kit based on the MSP430FR5994.
The new controller is in "Preview" status , but looks interesting -- 256KB FRAM + 8KB RAM + a Low-Energy Accelerator for Vector Math Operations ( TI claims 35x Faster Than ARM Cortex-M0+ Core for 256-Point Complex FFT ).
Check the app note Benchmarking the Signal Processing Capabilities of the Low-Energy Accelerator (Rev. A) for details.
The launchpad itself is interesting as it has an on-board micro SD card and super capacitor. Has any one got hands on experience with this one? I was thinking of getting one for a data-logging application, 256KB FRAM + SD card combo is very much tempting.
Would like to hear from you guys , has TI finally going in the right direction, as far as MSP430 is concerned, with the LEA in the fight against ARM?
