The MSP-BSL (previously known as the MSP430-BSL) is a low-cost programmer in the shape of a rocket. Hence, it is nicknamed the "BSL Rocket". The MSP-BSL is designed for easy communication between a PC and the BSL of an MSP430™ or SimpleLink™MSP432™ microcontroller (MCU) through USB. The MSP-BSL project is a collaboration between Olimex Ltd and Texas Instruments. The PCB design and firmware for the MSP-BSL are open source. As of this writing, the MSP-BSL supports UART, I2C, and SPI communication, but it can be extended for future requirements.
