I'm on a mission from God to permit updating firmware on F5xx, F6xx, FRxx, etc. using TI's BSL-Scripter software and a generic USB-to-Serial adapter like the CP2102, which could be embedded in a project. As things stand, Scripter requires either a "Rocket" programming device or an MSP-FET because it is those devices which actually generate the pattern on /Reset and TEST that invokes BSL on the target device. I've written a short program that produces the special pattern on DTR and RTS of a CP2102, but when I run Scripter immediately thereafter, it brings both of those lines low and keeps
A new WIN32 version of BSL-Scripter.exe has been compiled which allows BSL flashing using generic USB-to-UART adapters such as the FT232, CP2102 and CH430 as the hardware interface. It can be used with MSP430 F5xx F6xx, and FRxx parts with UART BSL. This version has a new MODE line option "INVOKE", which causes Scripter to directly generate the BSL hardware invocation sequence on the adapter's DTR and RTS outputs, which in turn are connected to the /Reset and Test pins on the target device. It produces the pattern shown in Figure 2 of slau319w.pdf and slau550s.pdf, which is normally gen
I don't know if this has any application for Energia, but might be of use to someone at some point. I've been working on a way to embed a generic USB-to-UART adapter like the CP2102, FT232 or CH340 in an MSP340 project so firmware can be updated without having to buy a Launchpad. The newer MSP430 parts presented a problem because BSL-Scripter, TI's software for BSL flashing for those parts, doesn't transmit the special invoke pattern on /Reset and Test. Instead, it just brings both lines low, which messes things up. I gave up on trying to recompile Scripter, but I've written a Wind
