Add MSP432 support to Arduino?

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know if MSP432 (black) can be added to the standard Arduino setup?

The reason: I've got an Adafruit Feather M0+ board working with Arduino, so the ARM Cortex-M compiler is "already there". I'm hoping maybe I could remove Energia (since I don't need the '430 support). If I add the JSON board file for the black MSP432 launch-pad, will the Arduino IDE get everything it needs to play with the MSP432?     https://energia.nu/packages/package_msp432_black_index.json

Also, is there a JSON file for the Tiva TM4C123 launch-pad?  (same reason, have a Tiva, want to move everything over to one IDE).

Thanks!

But I don't care about that multitasking - does anyone know if it would work otherwise?

Yes, I know the black MSP432 has been abandoned, but I'm not going to throw away perfectly good hardware.

Thanks for the response!

not json but instructions given for linux

Assumes you have openocd and arm-none-eabi-gcc in your path. Probably won't work for windows. Probably will work for OSX.

Although the Arduino IDE should be able to consume the Energia packages, there is a difference between the arduino-builder in Arduino and Energia which makes the msp432 package incompatible with the Arduino IDE. See the pull request here: https://github.com/arduino/arduino-builder/pull/119. I have it on my list to find a different solution and be able to use the stock arduino-builder at which point the Arduino IDE should be able to consume the Energia package.

For TivaC and MSP430, it is possible to use it in the Arduino IDE. Just put this in the preferences: http://energia.nu/packages/package_energia_index.json. Then pull up the board manager and install TivaC support.
