EnergyTrace technology is supported with Code Composer Studio version 6.0 and newer. It requires specialized debugger circuitry, which is supported on MSP432 LaunchPad development kits, XDS110 stand-alone debug probe, and second-generation stand-alone MSP-FET JTAG emulator. See the following documents for more detailed information.
Design Kits and Evaluation Modules
The MSP432P401R LaunchPad development kit enables you to develop high-performance applications that benefit from low-power operation. The kit features the MSP432P401R MCU, which includes a 48-MHz Arm Cortex-M4F, 80-µA/MHz active power, and 660-nA standby with RTC operation, a 14-bit 1-Msps differential SAR ADC with up to 16-bit ENOB, and an AES256 accelerator.
The MSP-TS432PZ100 is a stand-alone ZIF socket target board used to program and debug the MSP432 in-system through the JTAG interface or the Serial Wire Debug (SWD 2-wire JTAG) protocol. The development board supports all MSP432P4xx flash parts in a 100-pin LQFP package (TI package code: PZ).
The SimpleLink MSP432 SDK is a comprehensive software package that enables engineers to quickly develop highly functional applications on MSP432 MCUs. The SDK comprises multiple compatible software components including RTOS, drivers, middleware, and examples of how to use these components together. Examples demonstrate each functional area and each supported device and can be a starting point for your own projects. The SimpleLink MSP432 SDK is part of TI’s SimpleLink platform allowing 100 percent code reuse between SimpleLink MCUs.
MSP432 MCUs offer compatibility with several TI and third party Real-Time Operating Systems (RTOS). Visit this link to learn about the key features of each to suit your design needs.
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. For more information, see the Code Composer Studio™ IDE 7.1+ for SimpleLink™ MSP432™ Microcontrollers User's Guide.
The Arm Keil MDK is a complete debugger and C/C++ compiler toolchain for building and debugging embedded applications. Keil MDK supports the low-power and high-performance MSP432 MCU family, and includes a fully integrated debugger for source and disassembly level debugging with support for complex code and data breakpoint. For more information, see the Arm® Keil® MDK Version 5 for SimpleLink™ MSP432™ Microcontrollers User's Guide.
IAR Embedded Workbench Kickstart for MSP is a complete debugger and C/C++ compiler toolchain for building and debugging embedded applications based on MSP430 and MSP432 microcontrollers. The code size limitation of C/C++ compiler is set to 32KB for MSP432 devices. For more information, see the IAR Embedded Workbench® for Arm® 7.x for SimpleLink™ MSP432™ Microcontrollers User's Guide.
TI provides a CMSIS-compliant device family pack for MSP432P4xx devices. This pack adds MSP432P4xx device support to IAR EWARM 8.x, Keil MDK 5.x, and Atollic TrueSTUDIO® 7.x. In IAR EWARM this pack is optional as the IDE supports the devices natively.
MSP432 MCUs are designed to work with a variety of debuggers from Texas Instruments and third-party vendors.
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.
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.
The MSP Gang Programmer is an MSP430 and 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 Pin Mux Utility is a software tool that provides a graphical user interface for configuring pin multiplexing settings, resolving conflicts, and specifying I/O cell characteristics for TI MPUs. Results are output as C header and code files that can be imported into software development kits or used to configure customer's custom software. Version 3 of the Pin Mux utility can automatically selecting a mux configuration that satisfies the requirements entered by the user.
ULP (Ultra-Low Power) Advisor is a tool for guiding developers to write more efficient code to fully utilize the unique ultra-low power features of MSP and MSP432 microcontrollers. Aimed at both experienced and new microcontroller developers, ULP Advisor checks your code against a thorough ULP checklist to squeeze every last nano amp out of your application.
