Hello everybody,
I want to use the MSP430F5510 STK.
Now I want to know, can I program this board with CCS5 and connect it with an USB-cable?
Or is it only possible to program it with a JTAG Adapter?

I hope you can help me.

with best regards
S. Westig


Hello Mr. Westig,

There is a bootloader in the F5510 chip. We have connected the bootloader button required to enter such a mode properly and you can use software such as Download MSP430_USB_Firmware_Upgrade_Example-1.2.1-Setup.exe at the bottom of the page. You can then compile programs with an IDE and create binary file and upload that binary to MSP430-F5510STK via the bootloader.

Generally speaking programming MSP430-5510STK without debugger is possible. However, it is kind of slow method, requiring a lot of board restarts (switching between run and bootloader mode). For good programming results I recommend using a debugger.

I have a question : I use the tool from TI to upload prog to the 5510STK and it works

But, I would like use mspdebug on linux : is-it possible ?

maybe with tilib interface, but if that the case, i need and where can I find it ?

I'm a very newbie in msp...

(and english is not my native language ;o)

Thanks for your answer
