Part Number: MSP-EXP430G2
Tool/software: Code Composer Studio
I'm a rookie in this realm of micro-controllers, but have some self taught programming experience and a Systems Engineering background, however; I'm stumped with my dilemma.
I've searched the Ti/E2E forums, found a lot of related topics but nothing that seems to resolve my problem. I'm getting a message of No USB FET was found. I found a few related items and a couple that lead me to believe that maybe I don't have everything I need to move forward. In order to debug, do I need another peripheral device to connect between my computer and the Launchpad? Both of the links below reference debuggers such as the ez-FET. Do I need to acquire one of these for the MSP-EXP430G2 or are they just a nice to have?
No, you don't need a seperate programmer for any of the launchpads. These boards have the programmer/debugger built on. It's the top half of the board labeled Emulation, seen here:
I have a few more questions on how you're seeing this message:
We are glad that we were able to resolve this issue, and will now proceed to close this thread.

In reply to Matthew Silhavy:
Do you have the jumpers (J3 on the PCB) properly connected?
Is the device not running through the out of the box code now?
Maybe the issue is your CCS project settings. Where did you get this new project?
Let's try a TI provided project. Import some demo code or another example for the G2 Launchpad can be found in resource explorer here:
I just imported the out-of-the-box software to CCS Cloud and was able to flash from my browser. Can you try that?
Let us know how that goes.
