MSP430F5507: Flash programming and linker file

Part Number: MSP430F5507


I want to ask about the linker file, I am using the Main flash memory to store some data (3k byte).
I am using the segments right below the interrupt vector segment.

and the flash region in linker file in within the segments I am using, should i exclude the segments i am using from the linker file , or should i declared this region as another flash?
How i am going to be sure this region in not used by the linker?


  • Hi Dina,

    In most applications, there is not going to be any need to make custom modifications to the linker file and we recommend to use the default linker file that is imported from our provided code examples.

    For the basic application task of storing data in Flash, as long as you are storing the data in the main Flash memory (0x8000 - 0xFF7F), outside of the actual application code, then you should not have to worry about the linker interfering with your data storage.

    Best regards,


  • Thanks for clarifying.
