  1. I'm using the same version of Ubuntu with no real problems. Could you post what you see that indicates the port shutting down? Is it dmesg ouput? I've got rules in /etc/udev/rules.d/ to blacklist Modem Manager for TI devices. I had a custom set but I think that the TI/Red Hat GCC or Energia installed something newer. 70-mm-no-ti-emulators.rules ACTION!="add|change", GOTO="mm_usb_device_blacklist_end" SUBSYSTEM!="usb", GOTO="mm_usb_device_blacklist_end" ENV{DEVTYPE}!="usb_device", GOTO="mm_usb_device_blacklist_end" # TI USB Emulators ATTRS{idVendor}=="2047", ATTRS{idProduct
  2. That explains it. My SN falls after the range that Adrian mentions in the post about the update, and was manufactured / shipped right after that. Thanks for the info!
  3. Not sure. Did the original LaunchPad MSP-EXP430G2 ever get support for the newer tilib / MSP Debug Stack V3? I've not updated the emulator on mine, so it's still running the old original ez430-rf2500 firmware. The Spy-bi-wire will work even with the UART pins disconnected, but you cannot use the backchannel for UART communications. Should program just fine though.
  4. I don't think it's firmware unless it's *really* ancient. I've been using a 1.4 LP with the 2553, and my 1.4 LPs are from 4/2011 and have never had a firmware update. It predates the G2553. The only thing that I have to do on mine is swap the UART TX/RX pins if I wish to use the backchannel. What OS are you using? Can you communicate instead with the MSP430 Flasher? http://processors.wiki.ti.com/index.php/MSP430_Flasher_-_Command_Line_Programmer?DCMP=MSP430&HQS=Other+OT+msp430flasher
  5. Just got my half-price MSP-FET in the mail today. MSP-FET Backchannel UART support was added in MSP Debug Stack The firmware version and driver versions match this on my system. I default my terminal (Linux) to 9600 bps and this is normally fine with the FR5969 and F5529 Launchpad built-in EZ-FET. However, when I use the MSP-FET on the 5969 LP, I have to bump the speed of the port up to something higher and back down to 9600 before data begins to pass correctly. Has anyone else observed this? Again, the EZ-FET on the same FR5969 LP is fine. When I switch to the JTAG heade
  6. As I suggested... We've taken a few steps backwards. I'm sure that we can get it all ironed out quickly though. Lot of bright people in these forums.
  7. This is awesome! Sad to see that the HubPages site is down. Any estimated price for the kit?
  8. Anyone else notice that the compiler throws a lot of pointless warnings for mcu headers that aren't included as system includes? For instance: -isystem/opt/ti/gcc/include is fine where -Iopt/ti/gcc/include generates the following: /opt/ti/gcc/include/msp430fr5969.h:1256:1: warning:
  9. Still, that's nice code for people who can use it. Thanks for posting it!
  10. I ordered a FET even though we almost don't need them with Launchpad EZ-FETs. I'm sure it has its advantages with the speed boost and standard connector / cable.
  11. So, I've finally tried this in binary form to get it running quickly. Initial assessment is that the build and packaging is a bit weird. Interesting that libmsp430 is included, and in the /bin directory, but that's probably for the GDB agent with firmware update capability. Overall it's organized better than the beta version. It's a bit less forgiving than MSPGCC was with iinclude files and LD paths, but I guess that's what Makefiles are for. The included slau591.pdf manual makes it all pretty clear, and it's standard for GCC anyway. Seems to compile a few basic examples. Going to ha
  12. I'm still using yours... Cause it works. For what any of that's worth. May try Red Hat / TI's some day. Not yet. Appreciate the efforts though from all parties.
  13. I think that Energia will get an update soon. If you want to compile the library, you may be able to do it with hidapi and libboost. You may be able to loosely follow the Linux instructions here: http://forum.43oh.com/topic/5706-use-mspdebug-to-upgrade-msp430fr5969/ http://www.colotronics.blogspot.com.ar/2014/08/msp430-toolchain-in-ubuntu-1404-with.html Be aware that even if you can flash the board, you may run into problems with corruption and other issues that I've mentioned in other threads,. I guess that using TI's MSP-GCC-ELF compiler might resolve some of this as well as u
  14. I would assume that you need the newest MSP430 debug stack to support the new FR5969 LP with EnergyTrace. Older versions will not work. I compiled my own for Linux. Not sure of the procedure for Mac OS X. Where did you get it previously? Energia? http://processors.wiki.ti.com/index.php/MSP_Debug_Stack
