I have purchased this kit:
I want to program any MSP430 chip with this LaunchPad, is that possible?
I won't place any MCU in its own IC socket, instead I will connect RXD and TXD pins at the LaunchPad side to the relevant pins of an external MSP430 (like an ICSP connection).
For instance, assume that I want to program MSP430F5304 with LaunchPad:
My questions are:
- Is it possible to program any MSP430 chip with this kind of connection? If not, what subset of MSP430 family can I program this way?
- Exactly which pins on the both side must be connected with each other?
- How should I give supply voltage to the MSP430 to be programmed? (Externally (if so, in what range) or via LaunchPad)
- What should be the maximum length of this ICSP cable?
Thanks, any help will be appreciated.
