Other Parts Discussed in Thread: MSP-FET,
Tool/software: Code Composer Studio
I am using the MSP430G2102 MCU on my test board. I purchased a MSP-FET device and I want to flash it with the CCS V.7 tool with the project file that was created from the older version of CCS by our contractor. After powering on the test board and importing the project file, I found the Test Connection button is grey-out and I cannot test the connection to the MCU chip. I have the RC circuit installed for the RST line and I also connected the test board's 3.3V to the VCC_Target pin 4 on the 14 pin connector. I connected the SBWTCK line to pin 7 and RST/SBWTDIO line to pin 1 on the 14 pin connector. The TargetConfigs setup shows the Connection to TI MSP430 USB1 (Default) and the Device to MSP430G2102. I power cycled the test board a few times but it did not help. The CCS tool also shows a warning message saying the project was compiled with the older version compiler 4.4.3 and that is not currently installed. Does the CCS V.7 has a built-in newer compiler? Do I have to find the compiler 4.4.3 and install it? I am new to the CCS tool and I need help to resolve this issue.
