I would like to seek help in programming MSP430G2201.

That I am new to MCU field and it is my  first attempt to work with these, I have used Launch Pad to program some flash on other MCU but while trying to do on MSP430G2201 I have not succeeded. My trial is enumerated below.

I am using Launch pad to program MSP 430G2201 using TIDA-00386 remote code.

Upon Build when I click on Debug message as below appears. 


Error connecting to the target:

Could not find device (or device not supported)


I have connected Vcc, Gnd, RST and TEST pins of 2201 to the Launch Pad J3. I checked and confirmed correct connections offor Vcc and Gnd  on Pin # 14 and 1 of 2201 and so also the RST and TEST are connected correctly..

I have tried the above with CCS version 7 and earlier with version 6.2.


Target device is correctly configured as MSP430G2201 in CCS, USB port is also configured.


I have attached herewith two snap shots of wave forms of RST (Purple trace, channel 6 ) and TEST ( Grey trace channel 7). Both signals swing between 3.6 V and ground.


I seek you help so as to know where I may be going wrong.


Thanking you in anticipation.

J. A.
