I'm trying to use a Launchpad 430 to program a board that has an MSP430G2553IRHB32R. I am doing this on a Windows 10 machine. I've removed the jumpers on the Launchpad and connected VCC and Ground to the other board. I've also connected RST and TEST pins. I created a simple blinky sketch which runs just fine with a stand alone Launchpad 430. However, when I attempt to program my custom board with the same code, I get the following error. MSP430_GetNumberOfUsbIfs MSP430_GetNameOfUsbIf Found FET: HID0003:COM5 MSP430_Initialize: HID0003:COM5 Firmware version is 20409001 MSP430_VCC: 30
Hello, I'm new to MSP430.(if I make a mistake, pls tell me!) I just bought a MSP430G2553 and I read that it supports BSL via RS232. I have a FT232 usb -> serial lying around. Could anybody give me a schematic on how to connect my G2553 to my FT232? (and also give me the software for it pls!) (I could instead just buy a Launchpad, but I don't have any money right now! ) Thanks alot!
I have ordered some ESP8266 modules and discovered you can flash the firmware in order to make it program over WiFi. This allows me to use the ESP8266 as a standalone IOT node. But to get the firmware on the ESP you need to flash it. As far as I can make out, the programming actually happens over RX TX and you need USB to Serial. As I'm not keen to buy stuff in double, I wonder if I can use the launchpad to program the ESP8266.I remember I've read somewhere that the BAUD rate is limited to 9600, but is it the MSP430 chip who's limiting it? f it's possible to do so, do I need to take some preca
Hi all, I want to use an MSP430 Launchpad as a "programmer" for standalone MSP430[...] chips, the same ones used in the Launchpad itself. I thought about removing the existing chip from the board, attaching a ZIF socket through some PCB to all the IO pins, and putting the chip-to-be-programmed on the ZIF socket. I figured it's essentially the same as replacing the chip in the Launchpad socket itself, only easier on its metal pins. Will it work, or am I missing something? Perhaps I'll need to remove the LED jumpers? Anything else? Thank you very much in advance!
