MSP-FET: MSP430 Flasher/MSP FET Programmer

Part Number: MSP-FET
Other Parts Discussed in Thread: MSP432P4011,

Hello everybody,

I need help in Programming a firmware (no development) onto a MSP432P4011 microcontroller using SWD.

I bought a MSP-FET Programmer and after reading through the documents, I downloaded the necessary driver (USB Low level driver) and software (MSP Flasher).

While going through the MSP Flasher user guide, I noticed that there is no option for SWD protocol stated in the -m option flag. The options are AUTO, SBW2, SBW4, JTAG.

My question is, does MSP Flasher supports SWD protocol?

Can I select the JTAG protocol instead of SWD, since the two are 'quite similar'? I actually do not understand the difference between JTAG and SWD.

Thanks for your info.

yours sincerely,
