The next generation flash emulation tool, MSP-FET has been released and replaces the MSP-FET430UIF kit. The MSP-FET430UIF is no longer recommended for new designs.

The MSP-FET430UIF is a powerful flash emulation tool to quickly begin application development on the MSP430 MCU. It includes USB debugging interface used to program and debug the MSP430 in-system through the JTAG interface or the pin saving Spy Bi-Wire (2-wire JTAG) protocol. The flash memory can be erased and programmed in seconds with only a few keystrokes, and since the MSP430 flash is ultra-low power, no external power supply is required.

The debugging tool interfaces the MSP430 to the included integrated software environment and includes code to start your design immediately.  The MSP-FET430UIF development tools supports development with all MSP430 flash devices.

  • USB debugging interface (MSP-FET430UIF) connects a flash-based MSP430 MCU to a PC for real-time, in-system programming and debugging
  • Technical specifications:
    • Software configurable supply voltage between 1.8 and 3.6 volts at 100mA
    • Supports JTAG Security Fuse blow to protect code
    • Supports all MSP430 boards with JTAG header
    • Supports both JTAG and Spy-Bi-Wire (2-wire JTAG) debug protocols
