MSP430G2553: Connections between MSP-FET430UIF and MSP430G2553

Part Number: MSP430G2553

Hi Team,

We would like to confirm if the connections between MSP-FET430UIF and MSP430G2553 in the attached excel file are correct?

  • Hello Danilo,

    For the most up to date recommendation for connecting MSP devices via 4-wire JTAG or 2-wire SBW programming interfaces, please see the MSP HW Tool's User Guide, Section 2. In particular, look at Figure 2-1 for 4-wire JTAG, and for MSP430G2553, look at Figure 2-2 if utilizing the 2-wire SBW connection. 

    Also, I would like to point out that the MSP-FET430UIF has been obsolete for some time. Although it does support the MSP430G2553, it may not support the latest versions of CCS and IAR. I recommend getting the latest MSP debugger the MSP-FET.

  • Hi Jace,
