I am working on a school project that requires me to use the MSP430 microprocessor. While the entire class is working primarily with the MSP430G2553 launchpad, I have elected to use the MSP430F5529 launchpad as it uses a superior microprocessor in every respect. I have experience programming AVR chips and I could draw the minimum circuit for the ATMEGA1284p and ATMEGA328p blindfolded, I cannot seem to find a schematic of the minimal circuit for the MSP430F5529 on the web anywhere. Also I would like to point out that as an AVR guy, the documentation provided from Ti is pretty bad by comparison. Any information on these two topics would be helpful.
Hey guys. I recently got a Launch pad -- MSP430G2 board ( Rev B ) [only the board and the USB cable from a friend]. I downloaded Energia for my Mac running OS X 10.9. [maverics]. Though the Power LED lights up, the board is not recognised by the IDE. I don't know if the problem is with the board, the cable or the IDE. Though the board was detected for a short period of time and I was able to just uplaod the Blink sketch into it. Now when I connect to a USB power or my MAC, led1 just keeps blinking. I am unable to program it. I hope you guys can help me spot the problem so that I can rectify it and make use of the board to learn Embedded systems. Thanks in advance.
