Part Number: MSP430F6721A

Hello every one

I'm new to MSP430 MCUs, and wondering about low cost options for flash programming Only (Debugging or Emulation is an extra feature).

The MSP430F6721A fits my project needs. Fortunately, I have LaunchPad board MSP-EXP430G2 locally available.

I learned that the MSP430F6721A can be programmed using JTAG or SBW.

my question, can I Flash the newer MSP430F6721A using the older MSP-EXP430G2 LauchPad using onboard SBW connection and UniFlash software ?

Thank you.

  • Hello Ismail,

    The MSP-EXP430G2 is not able to program the MSP430F6721A. Please see Table 1 in the MSP Debugger's User Guide (http://www.ti.com/lit/slau647 ) for a detailed look on what tools can program which parts.

    Regards,

    JH

  • I am not 100% sure about this device, but most of the officially unsupported devices can be programed by G2 LP in combination with msp-debug ...

    If you already have G2 LP you can try it by yourself. If you don't have it, then buy some of new LP's with eZ-FET Lite on board, that officially support all MSP430 SBW devices. For example 5529 LP...

  • If you would consider using BSL for flashing, it may be possible to use the G2 Launchpad and a programmed G2231 or similar part, with the BSL Scripter software.  See SLAA535a.pdf and the related zip file.

    Hello Jace

    Clear, Thank you.

    In table 1 of MSP Debugger's User Guide (http://www.ti.com/lit/slau647 ),

    The first row tells that all MSP430 devices can be programmed using any board that has eZ-FET lite interface.

    I found that the newer MSP‑EXP430F5529LP has eZ-FET lite software interface,

    Can I use this board to program MSP430F6721A ?

    I want to confirm this before ordering the board

    Thanks again every one.
