Texas Instruments Inc.

Texas Instruments introduces a Compute Through Power Loss (CTPL) technology to enable context save and restore across its MSP430 FRAM microcontroller (MCU) family, including the MSP430FR6972 MCU. The patent-pending technology enables instantaneous wakeup with intelligent system-state restoration after an application unexpectedly loses power. In addition, the device includes integrated smart analog and digital peripherals to reduce system cost, power, and size. Features include a low-power segment LCD controller, 12-bit differential ADC with internal window comparator, and a 256-bit AES accelerator. The MSP430FR6972 MCUs are available in production quantities starting at $2.15 each/1,000. For more details, visit
