The MSP EXP430FR5739 experiment board has four mode to run the demosoftware

- Mode 3 Accelerometer Demo.
- Mode 4 - Temperature Sensor Demo.


the full description of the demos can be found in the MSP EXP430FR5739 board user guide.
In the mode 1 and 2 in demo you can see the difference between the write speed of the FRAM and flash memory.
