Tools and Software

All MSP microcontrollers are supported by a wide variety of software and hardware development tools. Tools are available from TI and various third parties. See them all at MSP430 ultra-low-power MCUs – Design & development.

Table 11-1 lists the debug features supported in the hardware of the MSP430FR599x and MSP430FR596x MCUs. See the Code Composer Studio™ IDE for MSP430™ MCUs User's Guide for details on the available hardware features.

Table 11-1 Debug Features

EnergyTrace™ technology is supported with Code Composer Studio IDE version 6.0 and newer. It requires specialized debugger circuitry, which is supported with the second-generation onboard eZ-FET flash emulation tool and second-generation stand-alone MSP-FET JTAG emulator.

MSP430Ware™ Software

MSP430Ware software is a collection of code examples, data sheets, and other design resources for all MSP430 devices delivered in a convenient package. In addition to providing a complete collection of existing MSP430 MCU design resources, MSP430Ware software also includes a high-level API called MSP Driver Library. This library makes it easy to program MSP430 hardware. MSP430Ware software is available as a component of CCS or as a stand-alone package.

MSP430FR599x, MSP430FR596x Code Examples

C code examples are available for every MSP device that configures each of the integrated peripherals for various application needs.

Capacitive Touch Software Library

Free C libraries for enabling capacitive touch capabilities on MSP430 MCUs. The library features several capacitive touch implementations including the RO and RC method. In addition to the full C code libraries, hardware design considerations are also provided as a simple guide for including capacitive touch into any MSP430 MCU-based application.

MSP EnergyTrace Technology

EnergyTrace technology for MSP430 microcontrollers is an energy-based code analysis tool that measures and displays the application’s energy profile and helps to optimize it for ultra-low-power consumption.

MSP Driver Library

Driver Library's abstracted API keeps you above the bits and bytes of the MSP430 hardware by providing easy-to-use function calls. Thorough documentation is delivered through a helpful API Guide, which includes details on each function call and the recognized parameters. Developers can use Driver Library functions to write complete projects with minimal overhead.

Digital Signal Processing Library

The Texas Instruments Digital Signal Processing library is a set of highly optimized functions to perform many common signal processing operations on fixed-point numbers for MSP430™ and MSP432™ microcontrollers. This function set is typically used for applications where processing-intensive transforms are done in real-time for minimal energy and with very high accuracy. This library's optimal utilization of the MSP families' intrinsic hardware for fixed-point math allows for significant performance gains.

FRAM Embedded Software Utilities for MSP Ultra-Low-Power Microcontrollers

The FRAM Utilities is designed to grow as a collection of embedded software utilities that leverage the ultra-low-power and virtually unlimited write endurance of FRAM. The utilities are available for MSP430FRxx FRAM microcontrollers and provide example code to help start application development. Included utilities include Compute Through Power Loss (CTPL). CTPL is utility API set that enables ease of use with LPMx.5 low-power modes and a powerful shutdown mode that allows an application to save and restore critical system components when a power loss is detected.

Development Tools

Code Composer Studio Integrated Development Environment for MSP Microcontrollers

Code Composer Studio is an integrated development environment (IDE) that supports all MSP microcontroller devices. Code Composer Studio comprises a suite of embedded software utilities used to develop and debug embedded applications. It includes an optimizing C/C++ compiler, source code editor, project build environment, debugger, profiler, and many other features.

CCS Uniflash is a stand-alone tool used to program on-chip flash memory on TI MCUs and on-board flash memory for Sitara processors. Uniflash has a GUI, command line, and scripting interface. CCS Uniflash is available free of charge.

MSP MCU Programmer and Debugger

The MSP-FET is a powerful emulation development tool – often called a debug probe – that allows users to quickly begin application development on MSP low-power microcontrollers (MCU). Creating MCU software usually requires downloading the resulting binary program to the MSP device for validation and debugging. The MSP-FET provides a debug communication pathway between a host computer and the target MSP.

MSP-GANG Production Programmer

The MSP Gang Programmer is an MSP430 or MSP432 device programmer that can program up to eight identical MSP430 or MSP432 Flash or FRAM devices at the same time. The MSP Gang Programmer connects to a host PC using a standard RS-232 or USB connection and provides flexible programming options that allow the user to fully customize the process. The MSP Gang Programmer is provided with an expansion board, called the Gang Splitter, that implements the interconnections between the MSP Gang Programmer and multiple target devices.
