Please use lpmsp430g2452 ID for board option in “platformio.ini” (Project Configuration File):

platform = timsp430
board = lpmsp430g2452

You can override default TI LaunchPad MSP-EXP430G2 w/ MSP430G2452 settings per build environment using board_*** option, where *** is a JSON object path from board manifest lpmsp430g2452.json. For example, board_build.mcu, board_build.f_cpu, etc.

platform = timsp430
board = lpmsp430g2452

; change microcontroller
board_build.mcu = msp430g2452

; change MCU frequency
board_build.f_cpu = 16000000L


Debugging - “1-click” solution for debugging with a zero configuration.


You will need to install debug tool drivers depending on your system. Please click on compatible debug tool below for the further instructions and configuration information.

You can switch between debugging Tools & Debug Probes using debug_tool option in “platformio.ini” (Project Configuration File).

TI LaunchPad MSP-EXP430G2 w/ MSP430G2452 has on-board debug probe and IS READY for debugging. You don’t need to use/buy external debug probe.
