MSP430F6736: MSP430F6736IPN (PN80 package): MSP-TS430* socket EVM ?

Part Number: MSP430F6736
Other Parts Discussed in Thread: MSP-GANG, MSP-TS430PN80, MSP-TS430PN80A, MSP-TS430PN80B, MSP-TS430PN80USB,


Are there any socket EVMs "MSP-TS430*" for the titled part# ?  I assume a JTAG programming for mass-production. MSP-GANG will control them.

The followings would be the candidates. Espeially how about MSP-TS430PN80 ?

- MSP-TS430PN80

- MSP-TS430PN80A

- MSP-TS430PN80B


(Edit: Changed the EVM part# from MSP-EXP to MSP-TS.)

  • Hello,

    I compared their pinmap and found I have no choices.

    Let me change my question.

    I would like to modify the MSP-TS430PN80A. It would be difficult to agree, but could you please tell me if any problems of concerns ?

  • Hello Hideaki,

    This type of EVM modification is not recommended by TI, it is preferable to create a custom EVM to program the MSP430F6736 PN80 devices with the MSP-GANG. If unavoidable then the MSP-TS430PN80A is the best available option but keep in mind that the most important pins for programming involve all VCC & VSS, DVSYS & VDSYS/VASYS, Vcore, JTAG, and RST/TEST. VDSYS & DVSYS require decoupling capacitors (10 uF + 100 nF) along with VASYS (4.7 uF + 100 nF). TEST should be connected to the proper pin. Voltages at other pins (11, 49, 50) should be removed.
