BSL (Boot Loader Client) Available for Linux PC to MSP FRAM Host

Part Number: MSP430FR5970

I am working on developing a Boot Loader Client Software for the MSP430FR5970 in order to update firmware using the serial port (RS232 connection).

I will be using Linux and the gcc compiler for my client implementation.

The best reference I have found is for the BeagleBone here:

I will be using a Linux Intel PC for my project and need to know the following:

1) Is there is newer reference (with source code) than the one provided.  The above link for the BeagleBone dates from August 2017.

2) Is there a newer reference that works with Linux on an Intel processor for the Boot Loader Client?

My specifics are:

MSP Part: MSP430FR5970IPMR

Storage Type: FRAM

Client Hardware: Intel PC

Communication Interface: UART (RS232)

Operating System: Linux / gcc compile

  • Hi Bob,

    I am sorry, we don't have any new example code.

    As the BSL in MSP430 is fixed in production and there is no any update, it is no reason to update this document.

    For FRAM device, the BSL protocol is all same. What you need to do is to move the code from BBB to your own platform.
