MSP430FR5848 BSL related using BSLDEMO2.EXE

Other Parts Discussed in Thread: MSP430FR5848, MSP-FET

Hello all,

I 'm trying to program my device MSP430FR5848 via the BSL for this device using UART0 P2.0(Txd) and P2.1(Rxd) pins. (via FTDI cable)

I have downloaded BSLDEMO2.EXE from TI website and while running  this "exe" via a batch file.

Batch file content is as shown below.

@echo off
rem ---- initialize environment variables -----------------------------

set workdir=%CD%

set HANDLER="%workdir%\bsldemo2.exe"
set BSL="%workdir%\bsl_150.txt"
set BSL130="%workdir%\BL_130V.txt"
set BSL150="%workdir%\BL_150S_14x.txt"
set TXT="%workdir%\test.txt"
set ComPort=COM11  
goto test1

echo --- test F413 (V1.30), F123 (V1.40), both 1 mass erase cycle ----
%HANDLER% -c%ComPort% -m1 +epvw  %TXT%
goto end

%HANDLER% -c%ComPort% +pvrw     %TXT%
%HANDLER% -c%ComPort% -w        %TXT%
%HANDLER% -c%ComPort% -s2 -w    %TXT%
%HANDLER% -c%ComPort% -w +vr  -pint_vect.txt %TXT%
goto end

rem ---- clear environment variables ---------------------------------
set BSL=
set BSL130=
set BSL150=
set TXT=
set ComPort=

I'm getting the following error on running the batch file as shown below.

"ERROR: Synchronization Failed !"

Device with boot loader connected?

--------------------------------------------------------------------- Press any key ...


My question is whether this exe can be used for my device (MSP430FR5848) ? Or any other exe is available ? I just want to program the device via UART only.

  • I have sad news for you.

    1. BSLDEMO2 works for F2xx and some other older MSP only. FRxx are not included.

    2. BSLSCRIPTOR works for newer MSP only. In addition, you can only use MSP-FET or the Rocket as hardware interface. Your FDTI cable is not supported.
