Tool/software: WEBENCH® Design Tools

Hi am Using Texas Instruments SmartRF Flash Programmer, connected it to IC M430FR5729 via JTag communication cable and the IC Is connected to 12V DC Supply, when I start to do flashing, the SmartRF Flash Programmer is showing that the device is unknown, But no other Application is actively using the MSP-FET, (Please take a look at the Attached Screen shot ) When i click on perform actions button the window is closing automatically

  • Hello,

    This programmer is mainly used to program the flash memory in Texas Instruments 8051-based low-power RF wireless MCUs, not the MSP430FR5729. A better option for your programming needs would be to use Uniflash. This programmer is always updated to support the latest devices from our product line.

    Best regards,

    Hello,

    The cause of the "No debug probes/devices detected" could be the result of an assortment of hardware/software issues. Could you please provide a schematic of the board you are trying to debug? From the picture you provided, it looks like the USB cable is frayed and that might be causing issues as well. You may want to try a new cable. You will also want to double check that the JTAG signals connected from the programmer to your board follow the recommended connections in the MSP430 Hardware Tools User's Guide (Figure 2-1, 2-2, or 2-3 depending on your project). 

    Best regards,
