The largest FRAM LaunchPad yet - https://store.ti.com/msp-exp430fr6989.aspx- $17.99 (128KB FRAM, 2KB SRAM)


That one must've snuck in undetected!


Similar to the FR4133, this has a built-in LCD.  A number of you got FR6989 Target Boards for the "ESI Project" campaign TI did last year, this is that same chip in LaunchPad form, and this has 40-pin XL headers instead of the puny 20-pin headers on the FR4133 and FR5969 launchpads.


Tool website - http://www.ti.com/tool/msp-exp430fr6989

It appears to have the eZFET with EnergyTrace.

Nice to see they've populated the 40-pin headers *and* the LCD at the same time.

I bet there will be some sort of discount when they officially announce this new LP. 


I have noticed that TI does this regularly.

Yes! Yes! Stay tuned!



You can buy it for $13.99 now.

Apparently it's now back up to the $17.99 price.


Surprising, I guess since I just received an email today (June 21, 2015) stating it was $13.99. But following the links to order, both from the email and from @@bluehash post, it comes up at $17.99. On the upside, shipping costs doesn't change regardless of the quantity ordered.

A bit late to the party, but I just ordered 3 of these for EUR 10.34 each at Farnell in the normal DEV version. The LAB KIT DEV version sells at EUR 22.59 but I can't spot any differences between the two :huh:

A tad cryptic. But the lab kit includes a set of common components needed if this was your first dive into electronics. It seems to be paired with a udemy course.
