Other Parts Discussed in Thread: MSP-GANG,
Could you tell me about Verification and CheckSum of MSP-GANG-SOFTWARE(GUI) and MSP-GANG(HW)?
The device is writing to MSP430F5342.
Q1: When I press the "Verify" button of MSP-GANG-SOFTWARE (GUI), do you compare "Flash memory inside the CPU where the program is actually written" and "Program data to write (For example, the .txt file.)" for each 1Byte?
*From "Figure 2-1. Main MSP Gang Programmer Dialog GUI, Interactive Mode" in "MSP Gang Programmer (MSP-GANG) User's Guide"
Q2: When I press the "Verify" button of MSP-GANG-SOFTWARE (GUI), is there no difference in the verification method whether it is done via BLS or JTAG/SBW?
Q3: When the MSP-GANG(HW) is run standalone, is the value of Checksum displayed on the screen as a result of calculation using the "3.4.2 Checksum" method in "MSP Gang Programmer (MSP-GANG) User's Guide"?
Or is it the result calculated by the "220.127.116.11 Verify Image Check Sum Command" method?
*From "Figure 2 -10. Image Option" in "MSP Gang Programmer (MSP-GANG) User's Guide"
Q4: Is it correct to understand that the result calculated by the method of "2.1.13 Checksum Calculation" is the verification of "Program data to write (For example, .txt file.)" and has nothing to do with the result of Q3 above?
Q5: Is the result of Q3 above the same as "2.4.2 Checksum" in "MSP 430 TM Flash Devices Bootloader (BSL) User's Guide"?
Q6: When the MSP-GANG(HW) is operated standalone and the "GO" button is pressed to execute JTAG communication write (8 devices), the following actions are recognized.
Erase- > write program- > verify- > checksum- > all complete- > repeat for second device.
If an error occurs in Verify and Chechsum after a program has been written, will the written program be erased?
