I have a few questions I wanted to get clarification on.
I have developed some demo code using CCS 5.2 on the MSP430G2 Launchpad w/ M430G2553. (mine looks like the image in the next link)http://processors.wiki.ti.com/index.php/Getting_Started_with_the_MSP430_LaunchPad_Workshop
Now I want to flash this onto the processor so that it boots with this algorithm (no debugger connected).
Can CCS 5.2 do this without extra hardware (i.e. using just the PC and USB connection to MSP430 launchpad)?
If it cannot, I saw that the MSP-FET430UIF device should allow me to flash the algorithm. http://www.ti.com/graphics/tool/msp-fet430uif.jpg
Is this correct?
If this is true, could someone point me to the documentation for connecting the board to this emulator b/c I do not see where the connection would be made (there is no 14 pin jtag connector that I can see)? Or if I am on the wrong path, plz point me to the correct tool for this so that I can purchase it?
When you use the CCS 5.2 debugger to run code on a MSP430 device, the program gets stored in flash and run from the flash while debugging.
It you power up the MSP430 without the debugger connected, it should just run the last program which was loaded from the CCS 5.2 debugger. i.e. you don't need extra hardware.
The Launchpad has the appropriate circuitry support to allow CCS to program the flash of the MSP430G2553. The USB connection goes to the on-board JTAG emulation function that supports Spy-Bi-Wire to the MSP430G2553. The MSP-FET430UIF is not required.
That was exactly what I needed to know. Thanks Guys!
