I have been using IAR Workbench Kickstart with the TI USB EZ430 debugger/programmer with the tiny thumbnail board. I got a Launchpad and haven't figured out how to use the same IAR Workbench with Launchpad. The PC sees the Launchpad as a Human device on COM4. I can't run hadware debug or download a program? Most examples use TI's IDE and Debug (CCS). It seems more complicated than the IAR?...

I am trying to develop a system on MSP430 launchpad. It should do ADC from F2013 and then transfer data through USB from the Launchpad to PC. With that's in mind, I reprogrammed the MSP430F1612 in the emulator side (by using FET-UIF, connect to TP holes in PCB from 1-> 7 to the UIF), to make it works like a bridge. However, I am now have a problem with the TUSB. I tried to download the driver

The Launchpad comes with a built-in application that displays a single character every second or so once S2 is pressed to start it in that direction. Pressing S2 again should display two characters and then one every second. While it works on EVERY SINGLE OTHER system in my house, there is one which does not seem to work over the serial port. It's a brand new machine, an Intel 2600K base...

Hello everyone, I want to buy a couple of prototyping boards (capes?) for the MSP430. What I need is an equivalent to the Arduino prototyping shields, i.e, a PCB which will plug into the Launchpad board with a proto typing area which I can solder components to or put a small plugboard on to. Do they exist and can I purchase them in the UK? Thanks, Steve G0XAR

About a year ago I made this stepper controller for my son's rotary table on his mill. I used the FET430UIF at the time as I've been lead to believe that wires to an off board chip from a launchpad just would not work.

Supposed we could make the screen display something like"the voltage at P1,3 2.0 volts" is instead of the "temperature info" could that possibly be done with the temperature program or would you have to modify the usb interface code? ------------------------------------
