Cannot program MSP40G2553 with Launchpad Rev1.4

Recommended Posts



I have a Launchpad Rev1.4 and had ordered a few samples of MSP430G2553 from TI. I am not being able to program the 2553 with energia. It gives me back the following errors:



tilib: MSP430_Erase: Could not read device memory (error = 6)

ihex: error on line 37

tilib: MSP430_Run: Could not read Enhanced Emulation Module register (error = 20)


I have cross-jumped my RX/TX wires as suggested on this page https://github.com/energia/Energia/wiki/Hardware. However I am still not able to program it. Currently I wish to send the simple blink example to it which is as follows :-

void setup() {                
  pinMode(RED_LED, OUTPUT);     

void loop() {
  digitalWrite(RED_LED, HIGH);   // set the LED on
  delay(1000);              // wait for a second
  digitalWrite(RED_LED, LOW);    // set the LED off
  delay(1000);              // wait for a second

It works perfectly if I change the jumpers back and use my MSP430G2231. Please help me figure out the mistake. I have attached my jumper configuration in the attached file. Please let me know if any other mod needs to be done if I want to program my G2553 with my Launchpad(Rev1.4).

That looks correct.  IIRC, there was a firmware update for the v1.4 LaunchPads, maybe to support the G2553...

Keep the chip inside the DIP socket when you do this I guess.  Not sure why it's needed since this flashing process is for the Emulation layer up top, not the G2553.
