Mixing low-power LCDs and FRAM technology

October 9, 2014 OpenSystems Media

If you need to integrate a low-power LCD into your design, I’ve got the answer for you. Well, actually, Will Cooper from Texas Instruments has the answer, not me. Will will be speaking on Tuesday on an E-cast that addresses this topic. One of the keys to making this work is non-volatile FRAM technology.

In the E-cast, Will will take a look at common challenges faced in low-power LCD applications. Using the MSP430FR4x ultra-low-power microcontroller and the LaunchPad development kit as the design example, you will learn how to reduce system size and power while cutting your development time.

Don’t get freaked out thinking that this this will be a product pitch with the MSP430 (I’ve seen the slides). It’s actually a great example of how LCDs work, how they are properly integrated into a system, and the different tradeoffs you’ll have to evaluate along the way. I wouldn’t recommend it if I didn’t think it was a good use of your time.
