MSP430F1232 can not debug & programming
Our customer use the MSP430F1232 MCU,I provided few sample to him that MCU can be debug & to burn code .But my customer bought 400 pcs MSP430G1232 chip .Those MCU can not debug & to burn code . I got my customer return MCU to test . I tried on CCS4 ,IAR & SmartRF flash programmer to download or to burn code also can not work .I do not know what's difference Please help me to solve this problem. More detali information as below :
Sample MCU mark Sale MCU
lline one : M430F1232 MSP430F1232
line two : O2TG4 1ITG4
line 3th : CQZ4D ALGTF
SmartRF flash programmer info is : Not able to identify
IAR info is : Could not find device (oe device not support)
CCS info is : Could not find device (oe device not support)
Thanks & Best Regard!
Likely, the new bought MCUs are of a newer silicon revision that is unknown to the MSP430.DLL he has installed on his system. The programmer needs to exactly know the device (down to silicon revision) and therefore software updates are required for new or updated devices.Usually, newer CCS and IAR versions come with the latest MSP430.DLL which in turn will update the original TI FETs automatically.
If you have a full icense of CCS/IAR and don't want to update, it might be possible to install a free version on another PC and copy over the drivers/dlls. But beware, the newest GCC and IAR use an incompatible dll and driver model, so you cannot use the latest one.
I still hope there will sometime be a tool that manages all this driver/DLL hassle.

I had IDE license . The CCS4 & IAR can be updata UIF firmware but it is completed update also can not find device or device not support. I tried CC5 same as problem.
I would try to use the PIF instead of UIF. I would also try to use BSL instead of JTAG.
(For the same reason I try to use Window-XP instead of System-8).
