  1. It is a clone-killer, obviously. However, in this type of PCB / USB connection I prefer on board integrated type, and not this one that is easily breakable.
  2. Stand alone software/hardware solution, that is working on any Linux I tried, and can be integrated in Energia. http://forum.43oh.com/topic/9337-where-do-i-find-the-script-that-runs-after-clicking-upload/?do=findComment&comment=76641
  3. MSP430F51x2 are 5V tolerant. FET-430UIF is stone age device, extremely slow, with FET same as on G2 LP. TI is working right now on hardware revision of MSP-FET, so if you want to buy one, be sure that this one is with new hardware revision. For low cost entry to MSP430 world, my advice is always for MSP430F5529 LP with updatable and open software / hardware design. Never for old and slow, closed and not updatable G2 LP (or any other board version with integrated this old FET).
  4. BTW, there is SD card open source example for MSP430F5529 inside TI USB stack (http://www.ti.com/tool/msp430usbdevpack). It is possible to plug MSP430F5529 by USB to PC and device will be enumerated as disk, with log file on it, that can be opened by notepad.
  5. It is working fine on OS X, after "boards.txt" and "platform.txt" update, located at Energia.app/Contents/Java/hardware/energia/msp430/ and copied flash to Energia.app/Contents/Java/hardware/tools/msp430/bin/
  6. I guess that this is OS related, because on Ubuntu, flasher log is present.
  7. Files are located at "energia-1.6.10E18\hardware\energia\msp430". I add my flasher to "programmers.txt" sbwplus.name=sbwplus sbwplus.protocol=sbwplus and to "platform.txt" # sbwplus tools.sbwplus.upload.params.verbose= tools.sbwplus.upload.params.quiet= tools.sbwplus.path={runtime.tools.mspdebug.path} tools.sbwplus.cmd.path={path}/bin/flash tools.sbwplus.upload.pattern={cmd.path} -f "{build.path}/{build.project_name}.hex" -e -w -v flash.exe is copied to bin dir. I tried to uplad blink sketch to msp430g2553 with "Upload Using Programmer", but this faild with "missing program.tool configuration parameter". After I modified in "boards.txt", MSP-EXP430G2553LP.upload.tool from mspdebug to sbwplus, device is flashed with "Upload". I checked outside of Energia, and device was flashed corectly. Is there any way for enabling Energia to display inside black cmd window, output from my flash.exe that is standard cmd application. Like here... What is line in hex file generated from blink example, before file end, 4 bytes located at address 0? :10FFF00068C068C0B0C168C068C068C068C000C0E0 :040000030000C00039 :00000001FF EDIT: OK, I found that record type 03 is used as start segment address related to 80x86 processors. Don't know about relation with MSP430 (value C000h?). AFAIK, IAR doesn't generate this.
  8. Where is this configuration text file? BTW, I am using Windows version, 1.6.10E18.
  9. I already answered you on e2e topic... https://e2e.ti.com/support/microcontrollers/msp430/f/166/t/577077 Lowest cost solution is BSL. Just take care that BSL password is equal to vector table. With wrong password device will lost calibration constants stored inside info A segment. If I remember right, new devices (for example G2553) are with some options regarding this, that are explained in device datasheet.
  10. Mailbox can be used for exchange data (or log) by SBW / JTAG between master and released target device. Unfortunately, it is not supported by TI tools. http://forum.43oh.com/topic/2972-sbw-msp430f550x-based-programmer/?p=54286
  11. FULL CCSv6 license files are now available for NO cost and available for download... http://processors.wiki.ti.com/index.php/Licensing_-_CCSv6
  12. One counter is counting input pulses, and another one time period (400 * 20000 = 8000000, MCLK = 8 MHz, 1 second).
  13. It is completed. Board size is 3.8 x 3.8 cm (1.5 x 1.5 in). Only CLI (open source) executable is needed on OS side, no dll / driver / installation, except (unsigned) inf file for Windows. Basic version and version with Mailbox / UART / I2C bridges working on: any Linux I tried: Ubuntu from 10 till 16, Fedora Workstation x86_64 23.10, openSUSE Leap 42.1 x86_64, CorePlus 6.4.1 (bootable USB stick) OS X from Lion (10.7.5) till Yosemite (10.10.5) Windows XP / 7 There will be website with all details about it. If you have any questions, let me know.
  14. Why than you didn't put note inside promotion that CCS 7 will be free, without license. And why (not updatable / unsupported) G2 LP was part of promotion, why not 5529LP. Why you are selling G2 LP at all anymore?
  15. IAR making software tool for different micro families. They are living from selling this. TI was selling software tool for their own product. It was not possible to build code for Atmel or PIC devices by CCS, so I don't get it why it was selling at all. Only reason that I can think of is that CCS was producing 2 times faster in half size binary related to IAR. And yes, it is really funny that TI was selling CCS license, few days ago, packed together with old, slow, and not-updatable FET, with limited support (or not supported at all) on new OS's.
