  1. I'm trying to set up an eclipse / gcc / gdb / mspdebug based development environment to work on a custom msp430 based board that the company I work for produce. I have set up eclipse with the tools which come with ubuntu 15.04, and it's almost working apart from a weird bug in the debugger. When you watch a local variable in the main function, eclipse displays an incorrect value. This bug has been around for a while, as I've noticed it before (see this and the following page: http://forum.43oh.com/topic/1419-eclipse-plugin-for-mspdebug-and-msp430-gcc/page-3). The bug has been fixed in the most recent version of mspgcc from the old sourceforge site, but this is 2 years out of date now, and the development has moved to a project hosted by texas instruments: http://www.ti.com/tool/msp430-gcc-opensource . I would like to use the most recent version from ti if possible; I've tried compiling it and it builds OK, but I can't find a compatible libc and set of device specific header files which will work with it. When I try to use the libc that comes with ubuntu, it says it's incompatible. Also, when I pass the flag '-mmcu=msp430f5510', which used to work before, msp430-gcc throws an error. I've also noticed that the msp430 support appears to have been merged back into the upstream mspgcc (and presumably the other gnu tools), which is another way I've thought of going. So my question is, given all this, what's the best way to go to set up an up to date open source toolchain for the msp430? I could just compile the most recent version from the old sourceforge project, but would rather use something more up to date if that is possible.
  2. Hi, I am trying to learn debugging Stellaris launchpad using gcc. I am using the GCC arm embedded toolchain. And I am trying to debug the blinky example project in the stellarisware. But GDB complains that it can't find the debuggin symbols. I have tried defining the symbol "DEBUG" in the source code, but that failed. Please tell me how I can fix this issue?

  3. I got a bit tired of not being able to debug on the NXP LPC1114, which supports SWD only (no JTAG). I discovered Black Magic Probe (http://www.blacksphere.co.nz/main/blackmagic), which is an open source project that uses an STM32 to export a GDB server via an USB serial device. It support both JTAG and SWD and should support a wide range of Cortex-M0, M3, and M4 targets. It can be used both for debugging and flashing of the target device. There is dedicated hardware for this, and it can be run on the F4-discovery boards as well. Unfortunately, I do not have any F4-discovery boards lying around. But I do have a couple of Stellaris Launchpads that do nothing but sit in their box. So I added the necessary code to allow the Black Magic Probe firmware to be flashed on the Stellarpad (which really wasn’t that much). Currently, UART0 on the LM4F is used, which is connected to the on-board debugger module that exports it via USB as a CDC ACM serial device. The pinout is as follows: JTAG TMS / SWD IO - PB5 JTAG TCK / SWD CLK - PB0 JTAG TDI - PB1 JTAG TDO - PE4 TRST - PA5 SRST - PA6 IDLE LED - PF2 / Blue LED ERROR LED - PF3 / Green LED You can grab the code from GitHub and try it out yourself: https://github.com/xpgdk/blackmagic/tree/stellaris_launchpad Please try it out, and let me know if there are any issues.

  4. Can I use gdb to debug programs on the Stellaris (or Tiva) Launchpad under Windows? If so, where do I find the instructions on how to set it up? I find lots of things for using gdb under Linux, or even under cygwin, but somehow I am missing the bit about how to use gdb with the launchpad under windows. (I have used CCS for debugging, but dealing with a larger project here with its own build system would be a bit of a bother to try to convert it to CCS, and the problem might even be gcc specific.) Figure I am probably either missing the obvious, or trying to do something that can't be done, but don't know which. Thanks Edit: Some other freely available debugger would be okay also (just as long as works with gcc).

    Debugging with Energia?

    Is there any chance to implement debugging with Energia? The manual procedure works fine with Terminal windows on Mac OS X, although everything is manual. One of the unparalleled key feature of the LaunchPad is the built-in hardware debugger. Alas, how to use in an easy way? I'd like to set breakpoint and monitor variables. Here's the manual procedure. On a first Terminal window, launch /Applications/Energia.app/Contents/Resources/Java/hardware/tools/msp430/mspdebug/mspdebug rf2500 gdb On a second Terminal window, launch /Applications/Energia.app/Contents/Resources/Java/hardware/tools/msp430/bin/msp430-gdb /var/folders/kd/70m4ltxn14l086ddy860ff3c0000gn/T/build2770014008396495792.tmp/mySketch.cpp.elf with mySketch being the name of the sketch on Energia and /var/folders/kd/70m4ltxn14l086ddy860ff3c0000gn/T/build2770014008396495792.tmp/ the name of the path. To know the name of the path, check the Show verbose output during compilation on the preference pane of Energia and have a look at the console. Something like /var/folders/kd/70m4ltxn14l086ddy860ff3c0000gn/T/build2770014008396495792.tmp/mySketch.cpp.elf should appear at the end after a successful compilation. On the second window of the Terminal, a prompts appears: (gdb) Type (gdb) tar rem localhost:2000 Now you can type commands like (gdb) list For more information about the gdb commands, please refer to the manual available at the http://sourceware.org/gdb/download/onlinedocs/'>GDB: The GNU Project Debugger
