Ther seems to be a website already:

(I can not load the datasheet, can anybody else load it?)

"MSP432P4x microcontrollers are the ideal combination of TI's MSP430 low-

processing capabilities of ARM's 32-bit Cortex M4F RISC engine. MSP432P4x
MCUs cater to a large number of embedded applications where both efficient
data processing and enhanced low-power operation are paramount."

Matthias,

I downloaded it and can send it directly to you if I get your email.

Thx, I also got it (after switching to a different browser ;-).
However MSP432 is a interesting part :-).

Yes but I always found Energy Micros a real dog to work with!

But no LCD drive, no USB .....
I will stick to the ST offerings for now, thank you

I ordered one of the new MSP432P401R Launchpads from TI last week, and received it today. They are good value at $12.99.

I installed the latest CrossWorks for ARM (3.4), but the new devices and board are not supported.

Why "a real dog"?

Yes. They are late - too late. I guess - there will be MSP432 with USB and
LCD in the future - but then other ARM are in the design ...

I guess the MSP432 is to retain current MSP430 users as they can migrate
their code (almost) keeping the peripheral drivers.

I placed an order some years ago, and paid for it by CC immediately, I
bought 2 each of their first development tools. almost 4 years later,
out of nowhere I received various letters, emails and other threats to
sue me for non-payment. Their books weren't in order, but they blamed
me, and got quite shitty about it. The old CC had been replaced, so it
was difficult to get a copy. Eventually I did and they seemed to go
away. 3 months later I received another bunch of similar threats over a
$60,000 order which I'd never placed, it was from another company based
in the USA. Again they refused to accept they'd made a mistake, so I had
to waste time and money proving them wrong. never got an apology for
either, or reimbursed for my costs. So "a real dog".

So far I haven't seen anything in their product range that I can't do
with an MSP, and the G series is as affordable as anything out there. I
could move to another family for the sake of it, the MSP430 is getting a
bit long in the tooth, and Ti are moving it well away from the stuff I'm
interested in, but, frankly, I haven't found an application yet, I
wanted to do, that the MSP430 can't handle.

Cheers
