Using two MSP430 JTAG-TINY-V2?
« on: February 27, 2017, 10:43:56 AM »
Hello everyone,

I was wondering if it is possible to use two MSP430 JTAG-TINY-V2 devices at once? I am currently working on project where I have two different MSP microcontrollers which I want to program independently.
My computer recognize two MSP430 JTAG-TINY-V2 at two different COM ports but Olimex MSP430 programmer does not. It shows me only one port USB.

Is it possible to program two MSP uCs by two MSP430 JTAG-TINY-V2 without disconnecting them? I don't want to use one programmer and switch connections manually.

Best regards,
TC

Each debugger has unique serial number but the programmer software that we distribute cannot differentiate between two units. It is just the software is not very advanced. Try with better software.

Hello LubOlimex,

Thank you for your reply.
Is there any document describing the API of *.dll files? Any idea where can I find some information or any other software?

No. The dll files are based on version 2 of the MSP Debug Stack, but are heavily modified to fit our hardware. This document gives the idea of the debug stack: http://www.ti.com/lit/ug/slau656b/slau656b.pdf

Older versions of MSP430 flasher should be good enough (as long as they work with dll v2 since new dll v3 is not compatible with the firmware inside MSP430-JTAG-TINY-V2). MSP430 flasher can be found here: http://www.ti.com/tool/MSP430-FLASHER
