MSP 430

Discussion in 'Embedded' started by sharkybooster, May 10, 2007.

  1. Hi has anyone tried writing to the information memory of the MSP430
    with the BSL. I'm trying and failing, I have applied the patch but it
    doesn't seem to work. Do I need to download the latest BSL? or can
    you not write to the Info Memory with the BSL commands?

    BSL = ootstrap loader- the serial, bitbanged flash programmer. It works
    well, if a little slowly. And no, I haven't tried it for info memory
    (the two 128 byte extra flash pages) but I would guess that the problem
    lies with protection- the BSL uses the program's vector table as a
    security password, without it you can only erase the whole flash.
