Evaluation Type: Evaluation Boards
Did you receive all parts the manufacturer stated would be included in the package?: True
What other parts do you consider comparable to this product?: MCU with external FRAM or battery-backed RAM
What were the biggest problems encountered?:
I have used this EVB just for one purpose - to get rid of external FRAM or battery backed RAM in our quadrature encoder application, where we must store position (a few bytes) for the case of power interruption.
The EVB is usual as all "red" boards from TI - no useful written documentation, but you can find everything on web. Code Composer is really usable, all the installing and connecting went very fast and straight-forward.
In fact, I got a working application in about 5 hours. Then I left it on the bench to rewrite the FRAM as fast as it could --- and it really works, it has not died:) This week I am going to prepare a final design based on this MCU.
