Programming FM430 through USB port on CSK

Postby applewood » Wed Oct 01, 2008 7:57 am

Is it possible to program the FM430 by connecting a PC directly to the USB port on the front face of the FM430 rather than going through the FET? If so can you provide a brief description as to how?

Thanks

To do so, you would need a bootloader with an interface through the FM430's USART1.

We don't currently offer such a bootloader.

The MSP430 has a bootloader inside it, but it's not tied to USART1, unfortunately.

And of course a bootloader would only allow programming -- you cannot debug (in the JTAG / debugging IDE sense) over the USB.
