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.
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 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 ca
