16-bit Low Power FRAM MCUsTexas Instruments announced what it asserts are the industry’s first ultra-low-power ferroelectric random access memory (FRAM) 16-bit microcontrollers. The MSP430FR57xx FRAM Series ensures data can be written more than 100 times faster and uses as little as 250 times less power than flash- and EEPROM-based microcontrollers, according to the company. The on-chip FRAM allows data retention in all power modes, supports more than 100 trillion write cycles, and delivers flexibility by allowing developers to partition data and programming memory with changes in software. The FR57xx Series addresses power consumption and write endurance barriers, and it is positioned as enabling developers to make more cost-efficient data logging, remote sensing and wireless update capabilities in new products that do more and last longer.
