The new 32bit Cortex M4F MSP432 is already soldered on a Launchpad, get one from TI’s store:
It’s a new ARM Cortex M4F
12.99 USD + S&H = 1 MSP432P401R Launchpad
- 48MHz ARM Cortex M4
- 95uA/MHz active power
- 850nA RTC operation
- 14-bit 1MSPS differential SAR ADC
- AES256 accelerator
HW: XDS100, XDS100ET (the onboard version on the Launchpad)
SW: CCS. IAR search didn’t bring up nothing for now…
Because it’s ARM!
Available: FREE RTOS, TI RTOS, Micrium OS
I hope I’ll compare it soon with one of the EFM32 Gecko’s… straight on the desktop.
