MSP430F5438 BSL using Serial Comms ...
Has anyone successfully used the BSL_Scripter and a Bootstrap Loader interface that uses the TEST, RESET, with TA0.0 & TA0.1 as the serial interface?
when i try to download the Application code to the MSP430F5438 using BSL programmer(BSL_Scripter.exe)
i am facing following Problem...
BSL Scripting application 1.06The local time is: 12:19 on 30.04.2012------------------------------------------Initializing, Mode: 5438 COM: COM1 DONEChanging Baud Rate to 9600 DONEMass Erase: FAIL(ee)RX Password: FAIL(ee)Writing MSP430TB.txt to device: FAIL writing data block starting at 5c00CRC from 5c00 of 4096 bytes to 982b FAIL....
please help me...
Do you have the circuitry that manipulates TEST and RESET pins to put the MSP430 in the "bootstrap program" state? The pins normally used for serial communication on the MSP430 are not used when programming in the BSL mode. Instead, TA0.0 is used for transmission and TA1.1 is used for reception of the serial data. Is this the configuration that you are using?
Dear sir,i connected MSP430 to the PC using BSL programmer.the BSL programmer CKT diagram is given in "MSP430 Programming Via the Bootstrap Loader User's Guide" chapter 4.1This BSL programmer is connected to the port pins of MSP430 using FRC cable,Fig shown below...
If this is the circuit between the PC and the MSP430, (or the functional equivalent) and the signals are going to the correct pins on the MSP430, then the BSLScripter should work. It has worked in the past for me, as long as the processor was not an XPS430 or an MSP430 rev A part. My only other question is, are you powering the MSP430 internally or externally? I assume internally from your diagram above.
Dear Lane Mitcham,
i am not understanding ,
what do you mean by powering the MSP430 internally or externally?..
Are you powering through the programming interface, connector H4 (externally), or do you have a battery or power supply already powering the board (internally).
MSP430 is powering internally i.e( power supply already powering the board (internally).)
Sunil ShetMSP430 is powering internally i.e( power supply already powering the board (internally).)
If the BSL reports a failed mass-erase, this might indicate insufficient voltage/power to perform the operation.

Dear Jens-Michael Gross ,
MSP430 is powering at 3.3v.
