  1. @all: I wanted to ask about DLL. I read about the MSP debug stack and how it is important (giving the interface between the PC software and the target MCU). I have read about the FET, which we use and how it gets updated if it doesnt have the latest drivers. I wanted to know little about the DLLs. I know this is off-topic. Since I'm trying to understand more about the debug world it is good to know what exactly the DLLs do?
  2. @@roadrunner84 @ Rickta59 and @@spirilis : thanks for the inputs! I will try to gain some more knowledge and get back to it later! I will try to use the BSL of the launchpad which I have. Lets see! thanks!
  3. @jazz: thanks for the reply. I had read very roughly the 2 documents before posting this question. The docs give the details. However, I wanted to know the overall significance of the different downloading/debugging/firmware-update mechanisms and how and when are they mostly used depending whether the controller is under-development phase or in the customer side. Thanks. I will try to get more info regarding this topic. Regards, Vin43 "thank you"
  4. thanks for your inputs. I wanted little more clarification and info regarding burning the chip/debugging. As a new to microcontroller usage, I have below points: Please enlighten me with you experience. Googling is ineffective in these questions! 1. In cheap-launchpads (LP), we have In-circuit-debugger: where we just connect the LP to the PC via the USB and everything (downloading the hex, debugging) is done by the In-circuit debugger. Then why cant we have in-circuit debuggers on all development kits? 2. I had a microcontroller-kit, with pin-outs on all the pins (used in development/tes
  5. Hello all, I have been trying to understand the importance of the BSL. From the TI doc, "Programming with the BSL" I realize that BSL is used to access Memory, during the different phases of the controller. My question is: why do we need this BSL? is it required to calibrate the controller? like setting the temperature and operating conditions, before the controller takes the program execution address from the reset vector? Generally, from my understanding and usage: we used the JTAG, FET tool to download the code onto the controller, to debug the code. Then why do we need the BSL
  6. Hi chicken Oh, now I understand it. This is so different from FR series. Thanks a lot! ~vin43
  7. Hello all, I'm getting confused with the configuration of the clock in my G2553 device. I tried to find in the forum regarding this post but couldnt clear my doubt. 1.The DCOCTL has DCOx and MODx fields but there is no table in the user guide mentioning the values to be given to these fields to get the required DCO Freq. 2. To get 1Mhz DCO clock I used DCOCTL = CALDCO_1MHZ; BCSCTL1 = CALBC1_1MHZ; and I got 1MHz DCO. 3.When I check the DCOCTL and BCSCTL1 in the debugger the values are DCOCTL = 0xBC BCSCTL1= 0x86 4. It means that there is modulation. I dont know
