I have a problem with MSP430F4784 but only when using CCS5.1 (works well with CCS4.2).
The error what I get: MSP430: Error connecting to the target: Unknown device
What I already checked:
- the same project and the same board with CCS4 - it does works well (tried more times switching between CCS versions).
- does not works with CCS5 (FETUIF firmware upgraded automatically by the latest CCS5.1 as described at http://processors.wiki.ti.com/index.php/MSP_Debug_Stack#Upgrade_process_to_MSP430.DLLv3)
My board has the same setup as the TS430PW24 except the TEST/VPP pin on the JTAG 8 which is not connected since there is no such pin on the F4784. Same drawing is present in the SLAU278f.pdf on page 25 where it does confirms the missing TEST pin on some MSP variants.
Since CCS5.1 & FET-UIF is working with 2xx MCU I would like to know if anyone experienced such thing with 4xx/5xx MSP's?
