CCS clock cycle counter

Recommended Posts

Enabling the clock really slows down execution. It seems to single step and count the cycles of each instruction. Is this a limitation of the G series parts or do all MSP430 lack a hardware instruction cycle counter? Is there any way to enable/disable the clock with the keyboard?

I am using Code Composer Studio (CCS), not IAR Kickstart - sorry that wan't clear. Target is the Launchpad with G2231.


It is running on the hardware because the I/O responds as expected. A software simulator would certainly be a great addition to CCS.


I have also noticed that the first cycle count after enabling the timer is often 1 higher than it should be. Anyone else see this behavior?
