MSP430-HFR5739 Trouble Writing Memory Block
« on: August 26, 2016, 02:26:50 PM »

I bought a MSP430-HFR5739, even 2 pieces, about 1 month ago. To debug I have a JTAG TINI-V2. The loaded demo program ran. At first I tried with the CCS 6.1.3 and then with the IAR 6.4 itself a Blinking LED - to load program.

JTAG can not write to the memory appear.

CCS 6.1
MSP430: Trouble Writing Memory Block at 0xc200 on Page 0 of Length 0xca: Could not write device memory
MSP430: File Loader: Verification failed: Target failed to write 0x0C200

IAR 6.4
Could not write device memory : (WriteMemory) , address=0xc200, buffer=1@, count=0xa0
Trying to initialize target failed

The behavior of both boards the same.

Does this have anything to do with the JTAG FUSE in FR-RAM?
OLIMEX had indeed loaded a program.
What should I do now?

Greetings Klaus

The problem is not related to the MSP430-HFR5739 board. It seems that MSP430-JTAG-TINY-V2 doesn't work properly with this exact target chip MSP430HFR5739 under the newest IAR EW for MSP430. When I test here I get similar results as you.

I recommend you to test programming the target with our programmer software, which is available here: https://www.olimex.com/Products/MSP430/JTAG/_resources/MSP_PROG_GUI_1.3.0.4_CLI_2.0.1.2_DLL_1.0.4.2.zip

Remember to change the dll with the latest one and also add the following line in olidev.ini

:MSP430FR5739    0000c200    0000ffff    00001800    000018ff
