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: 3000 mV MSP430_OpenDevice tilib: MSP430_OpenDevice: Could not find device (or device not supported) (error = 4) tilib: device initialization failed the selected serial port tilib: device initialization failed does not exist or your board is not connected I have selected the MSP-EXP430G2553LP board and COM5. I cannot seem to get it to program my other board. I've tried several different USB cables. Used 2 different computers and 2 different Launchpads. I even attempted to program a different custom board that I had been able to program before. I'm using the latest version 18 of energia. Can somebody point me in the right direction as to how to solve this problem and be able to program my custom board? After that, does anybody know what I need to do to get the board.txt and pins file set up to work correctly with my 32 pin MSP430G2553... chip? Thanks for the help, Curtis
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 precautions (remove the MSP430 from the DIP, ...)?
igendel posted a topic in GeneralHi 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!
