Part Number: MSP430F47197
I get error when using the calibrator tool that comes with the 'SLAA409A - Three-Phase Electronic Watt-Hour Meter' design files.
I tried the calibrator tool that comes with the MSP430i20xx TIDC596 design files BUT the format must be wrong and values are all over the place.
1. how can i get SLAA409A calibrator tool to work under Win7 or Win10?
2. is there a way to reformat the calibrator tool that comes with TIDC596?
Can you please post an image of the error? I was able to open the SLAA409A calibration GUI just fine on my PC running Windows 7. Did they configure the correct COM port in the 'calibration-config.xml' file before trying to open the GUI?

Do you know if the communication indicator goes from Red to Green when they open the GUI and connect it to the EVM? Unfortunately, this is an older design, and I don't have this EVM to run the test on my PC.

If you're using the EVM430-F47197, I'd recommend using BOTH the source code and the GUI related to this design and NOT those for the EVM430-F67641. I suspect that either the firmware or the GUI itself or both changed between these designs. You can find the source code and GUI at the links below.
Hello Marc, I'm not sure why the software isn't linked on the EVM430-F47197 product folder, but I'll see if we can add it. I just did a quick search for SLAA409A and found it (link here, may need to use Firefox browser). Eventually, the customer will need IAR to modify the source code for their development. In the meantime, they could use UniFlash or Elprotronic's FET-Pro430 Lite to program the binary that comes pre-built with the source code. After downloading the .zip file, they can find the binary in the following location: slaa409 > Source > emeter-ng > Debug > Exe > emeter-47197.d43 Do you know why the customer isn't using one of our newer designs/EVMs like the EVM430-F6736 or the EVM430-F6779?

Here's the link to the .zip file directly:
No go, we got the same results. Data correct on LCD but not through configuration GUI.
Do you guys have an MSP430F47147 kit to try this on? I want to hold off reprogramming as long as possible.
