Advanced signal processing on 16-bit MSP430™ FRAM MCUs with low energy accelerator (LEA)

This training series covers LEA, a vector math co-processor, the performance benchmark and how to get started.

This training series covers low energy accelerator (LEA), a vector math co-processor, the performance benchmark and how to get started on the new MSP430FR599x. LEA is capable of performing various signal processing tasks efficiently without any CPU intervention. For example, LEA can perform a 256-point complex FFT in just ~5k cycles whereas a Cortex-M4F would take approximately 17k cycles (3.6x improvement). Coupling with DSP Library, it enables customers to easily get started with their application development with signal processing like FFT and FIR filtering to name a few. The MSP430FR5994 comes with 256kb of FRAM, 8kb of SRAM and 6-channel DMA to list a few new enhancements to the FRAM portfolio.
