MSP430™ FRAM Microcontrollers Intellectual Property Encapsulation (IPE)
The memory of many microcontrollers’ applications contains information that should not be accessible by the public. This may include both the application code itself as well as configuration settings for certain peripherals. The IPE module allows the protection of memory that contains this kind of sensitive information. The Intellectual Property Encapsulation IPE ensures that only program code that is itself placed in the IPE protected area has access to this memory segment.
