Hardware tools

What is available?

Texas Instruments produce fairly inexpensive development kits for the MSP430 range of processors. These consist of a small prototyping board holding the processor, and a JTAG-to-parallel-port adapter suitable for any standard PC type machine. Evaluation boards and TI compatible JTAG-to-parallel port tools are available from several suppliers, including Olimex, SoftBaugh and Lierda. Any of these tools may be used with the debug facilities which mspgcc provides.
