Description

MSP430™ GCC open source package is a complete debugger and open source C/C++ compiler toolchain for building and debugging embedded applications based on MSP430 microcontrollers. This compiler supports all MSP430 devices without code size limitations. This compiler can be used standalone from the command-line or within Code Composer Studio v6.0 or later. Get started today whether you are using Windows®, Linux® or Mac OS X® environments.

Get started

Step 1: Download the latest MSP430 GCC package
Step 2: Refer to the MSP430 GCC quick start guide
Step 3: Refer to the MSP430 GCC user's guide

MSP430 GCC Open Source Key Components:

The MSP430 GCC compiler is owned by TI and maintained by Mitto Systems since 2018 (it was previously maintained by Somnium and Red Hat). The MSP430 GCC compiler is provided within the MSP430-GCC-OPENSOURCE package.

  • Available standalone or integrated within Code Composer Studio™
  • No code size limitation
  • Free and open source code
  • CC and GDB binaries for Windows, Linux and Mac OS X
    • GGC, GDB, binutils, Newlib
  • MSP430 header and linker files
  • GBD agent configuration based on MSP-FET debugger
  • MSP430 debug stack support

Support for MSP430 devices includes:

MSP430 GCC and GDB binaries, header files, device description files, and configuration files are available for all MSP430 devices.

Please note: The free MSP430 GCC compiler does not provide the code size and performance advantages of the optimizing TI compiler found in Code Composer Studio. On average the TI compiler often provides about a 15% code size and performance improvement, as compared to using the free GCC compiler for MSP430; though, these differences can vary significantly from function to function. Please refer to the MSP430 E2E forum for any questions or to provide feedback regarding this product.
