Colleagues, I can't seem to make the printf() to work through Spy-Bi-Wire (SBW) in CCStudio. The program execution just hangs, when it gets to printf(). My setup consists of: * MSP430FR5739 * MSP-FET430UIF * Code Composer Studio 5.3.0.00090 To try to enable the printf(), I've changed these settings in Project-> Properties: * Console I/O (CIO) enabled * Stack si

Hi all. I'm new in this group but I'm an old MSP430 user. I have an old FETx11x interface to program MC units but I don't know till what model I can program by it. When I bought it there was only the 1 serie. But now I see the family is growing up day by day. Can anyone help me? Thank you very much Pietro ------------------------------------

Hello everyone, I wonder if anyone had this problem: I am using the MSP430F5336 on a new prototype board. With the MSP-FET430UIF (JTag Interface) it does program ok, however the LF XT1 (32kHz xtal) won't start (it locks while checking the UCSCTL7 & XT1LFOFFG bit). If I remove the programmer and power the board, it works just fine. If you reconnect the programmer, it keeps running...


Compressing MSP430 binaries?

So I have a spiffy new wireless sensing node built on an F2419. Now my thoughts turn to updating the device's firmware over the radio link (FOTA). I'd sure like to compress the binary before sending it over the air and storing it in the node. Our first attempts at using an already implemented form of LZW didn't offer much compression. So I'm looking for a better choice. Can someone suggest a...

Hi, In IAR, with the following code (full code of a test case at end of message) struct ab { unsigned short a; unsigned short b; }; struct ab T[4] = { {1,2}, {3,4}, {5,6}, {7,8} }; when I look at the table when the debugger reaches main, I see : 2,3 4,5 6,7 8,x (x is a random value) If I look at the two bytes before, they are 01 00. It looks as if T was initialized ...

Hello, Could someone enlighten me on what's the bes approach to doing the following is: I need to read a set of three "Chinese calipers" connected to one of the "cheap" MSP430s (probably MSP430G2153). The calipers use a synchronous serial protocol. (On one line they provide the clock signal, and on the other - data). Once the position is read, it needs to be sent over UART to the mothership. ...

Hello, I just received my LaunchPad board and of course I joined this group. I'm a veteran software engineer with some hardware experience (physical circuit building, not just embedded or firmware coding) but I'm new to MSP430 development. What's the best development environment? Code Composer, IAR, MSPGCC, or Energia? Here are my initial thoughts, 1. Code Composer has the needed device driv...
