Msp-fet430uif Firmware Fixed

The FET tool powers up with an LED sequence of red-red-red-green. I have followed the "Getting Started" section of the CCS User's Guide and created a test project. When ccsv4 attempts to upgrade the firmware of the FET tool it fails at the step of "erasing interrupt vectors..". This error is repeatable on a second Windows PC. I understand that the high-level driver pair is specific to the version of FET tool and the controlling software program, IAR, CCS etc.

Msp-fet430uif Firmware

Since IAR Embedded Workbench for MSP430 version 5.51.x, it is no longer possible to use the v2 version DLL or firmware (since the firmware API has changed). To downgrade the FET firmware to v2 anyway, use:

After upgrading to IAR Embedded Workbench for MSP430 version 5.40, there might be problems using the FET debugger with older IAR Embedded Workbench for MSP430 releases. It is possible to replace the old msp430.dll with the new DLL from IAR Embedded Workbench for MSP430 5.40, to get it working. If this does not work, you can use the downgrade utility, V32V2.bat, located in the 430/bin directory to do a firmware downgrade. See the 5.40 Release Notes for more info.

This smells like: CCS/MSP-EXP430FR2433: "MSP430: Error: MSP-FET / eZ-FET recovery failed" firmware bricked? - MSP low-power microcontroller forum - MSP low-power microcontrollers - TI E2E support forums

I plugged the MSP-FET into a third windows PC with the same version of code composer installed, clicked debug on a random project and it updated the firmware on the device successfully. My device manager now recognizes the product.

D/FW is an open source, experimental, and unofficial firmware forMSP-FET430UIF and eZ430U debug interface and associated host side control programs. Host side programs are designed to work withany modern UNIX operating systems (e.g. Linux, *BSD).

Error initializing emulator:A firmware update is required for the MSP430 Debug Interface (MSP-FET430UIF / MSP-FET / eZ-FET). Click the "Update" button to update the firmware and launch your debug session (this may require several update steps).

I wanted to know in case I download the BSL firmware on the MCU , and thereafter I download any application firmware via the JTAG and not through UART, the application wont run. I want to know the reason why this happens.

A few months ago I posted build instructions for a DRO controller that uses MSP430G2553 microcontroller with a TI MSP430 Value Line Launchpad. Compared to the original version that used Arduino, the Launchpad version has a few advantages, such as lower cost and simpler construction. On the other hand, firmware upload process is not as user-friendly as that offered by the Arduino software. Fortunately, you don't need to install the full-blown IDE, list TI Code Composer Studio or even the MSPGCC tool chain. Instead the pre-compiled firmware can be flashed using a free command line MSP430 Flasher tool offered by Texas Instruments.

To save yourself a lot of frustration later, please verify that you got the right version of the Launchpad with the correct chip installed. At the time of this writing Launchpads purchased directly from TI's store use PCB version 1.5 and ship with MSP430G2553 microcontroller. On the other hand, many sellers on Amazon and are still selling old V1.3 stock with 16-pin MCU. If you already purchased a kit and it came with the wrong chip you can order the correct IC from, Mouser or any other component supplier. I've tested the DRO firmware with Launchpad versions 1.3, 1.4 and 1.5 and they all work equally well.

As you can see, firmware upload process isn't that complicated and should take only a few minutes. If, never the less, you run into trouble please feel free to ask for help either in the comments below or via email.

After installing, I tried a dummy read on my MSP-FET. MSPFlasher asked me to update the FET firmware, which failed, as well as subsequent recovery attempts. After investigation, it turns out that the USB Product ID of my device is 0204, therefore I added

Our LaunchPad was working fine for a while, but it just stopped connecting to the driver station laptop, so I tried reflashing it. Whenever I try to flash the FRC firmware onto the LaunchPad, it gives me the error:

Re-read the "Building on Linux" and noticed the last sentence there "Be sure to use a recent release of mspdebug". So I've clonet the mspdebug and tried the current master (d59fb64ac20e31c207c02e33b58d5e297c18e27b). It insisted on upgrading the firmware and then ended up with the same error over and over. Board did not blink with the pre-programmed code as before, so "something" happened:

Important to note is the line Chip info database from MSP430.dll... which indicates that it found our freshly built example above indicated the firmware on the MSP-FETU430IF is outdated so let's correct that.

Loading Firmware. To load firmware files onto the MSP430 MCU for theMSP-EXP430F5438 Experimeneter board, you need a programmer like theMSP430 MSP-FET430UIF debugger or something similar. The eZ430-RF2560 andMSP430F5529LP contain a basic debugger. Now, you can use one offollowing software tools:

I'll shortly be working on a project which will use Node Red on a Raspberry pi 3B, part of this project will involve using the pi to program (firmware upload) a populated PCB under test. The Micro Controller in this case is one from the Texas Instruments MSP430 family.

USB connection is supported for this driver. The USB interface chip in these devices is a TI3410, which requires a firmware download on startup. MSPDebug will search for a file called ti_3410.fw.ihex in the configured library directory and the current directory. You can specify an alternate location for the file via the MSPDEBUG_TI3410_FW environment variable. 350c69d7ab
