I bought the MSP-FET430U48B because I wanted to use the msp430F5342. It came with a document titled "READ ME FIRST" that tells me to use the enclosed CD to install IAR Systems Embedded Workbench Kickstart!!! I was planning on using CCS, I don't need to learn another tool. Does anyone know why I have to use IAR?
You do not need to use IAR. Code Composer Studio is absolutely an option.
