Thanks for the reply Rei Vilo, In my setup, I am not utilizing the LDO on the MSP-EXP432P401R, and have removed the jumpers connecting to the debugger side of the board. I am instead utilizing an external buck boost converter to power both the MSP432 and the CC3100. The goal here is to be able to power both off of battery power. It would simplify the setup if I could only provide 3.3v and not both 3.3v and 5v.
Hello, I am attempting to externally power a MSP-EXP432P401R (rev 2.1) & CC3100BOOST (rev 3.3) independent of USB connections.
