TI MSP430

Configuration:platform = timsp430

MSP430 microcontrollers (MCUs) from Texas Instruments (TI) are 16-bit, RISC-based, mixed-signal processors designed for ultra-low power. These MCUs offer the lowest power consumption and the perfect mix of integrated peripherals for thousands of applications.

Debugging

PIO Unified Debugger - “1-click” solution for debugging with a zero configuration.

Tools & Debug Probes

Supported debugging tools are listed in “Debug” column. For more detailed information, please scroll table by horizontal. You can switch between debugging Tools & Debug Probes using debug_tool option in “platformio.ini” (Project Configuration File).

Warning

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

On-Board Debug Tools

Boards listed below have on-board debug probe and ARE READY for debugging! You do not need to use/buy external debug probe.
