Hi Guys, My name is Nathan. I've lurked around here on 43oh a bit, but this is my first official post. I've been working with the MSP430FR5969 for several months now and I've quickly grown to really like it. It seems to me TI's FRAM processors should really be getting more exposure for battery powered development in both professional and maker communities. To that end - I was hoping to get some feedback on a product idea. We've packaged the FR5969 into a tiny coin-cell powered module. The module can operate as a stand-alone processor or it can plug into an UNO-form-factor breakout board with an eZ-FET lite programmer, allowing you to program it with CCS or Energia. We're waiting on the first PCB's to debug the base product right now, but the goal would eventually be to offer with with a handful of matching small daughter-boards to add WiFi, BTLE and either the Sharp LS013B4DN04 hybrid screen or an e-ink display - all except the WiFi would be powered directly by the coin cell (WiFi would require a couple AAA's). It might make sense to have a few sensor boards too depending on interest level (humidity/temp, compass, GPS, accel, gyro, prox, etc.) Does that make sense? Any thoughts? Is this a product you think people would be interested in? It doesn't seem like anyone is offering really well-packaged small, ULP, battery powered MCU modules, especially with Arduino code compatibility and this would fill a good niche (certainly one I have some uses for anyway). Anyway - I'd appreciate any feedback or suggestions. Thanks. NC
