CCS/MSP430FR5857: MSP430FR5857 with eZ-FET Lite

Part Number: MSP430FR5857

Tool/software: Code Composer Studio

I am designing a board with the above mentioned MCU. I am trying to program using an eZ-FET Lite.

The connections I made were

On ez-FET lite         On my Board

3.3V ----------------> AVcc/DVcc

SBWTEST ------------->SBWTCK



But I don't understand how to connect the rest of the pins i.e. TXD,RXD, CTS and RTS.

I do know that UART on the MSP430 has connections for TXD and RXD but how to connect them is a bit if a mystery for me.

I did try to read up on it on the forum but they have only spoken about connection with a Launchpad but not a standalone MCU.

Another doubt I had is if we could use 4 wire JTAG interface with eZ-FET Lite or is it limited to Spy-Bi-Wire.?

I am new to UART and interfacing it so forgive in case any mistakes were made.

Thank you in advance.
