I am currently working with the MSP430FR5739. The missing piece is a port of TI's SimpliciTI networking stack running on the FRAM line of MCU's.

Embedding FRAM technology in an MCU architecture such as this of MSP430, is a great enhancement which results in even less power consumption. I had the chance to work with a combination of MSP430 and FRAM devices, in my final year project using discrete FRAM chips, aimed at the implementation of a portable wireless temperature data logger, with great results as regards low power consumption. Arming MSP430 with FRAM ranging from 256KB to 512KB, will enable sufficient data logging in such applications without the need of external FRAM devices.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
