Thank you for coming to this forum.
I beleive there are not so many ready-to-use tools for Mac Intosh.
But I am sure there are many people interested by programming
MSP430 on MacIntosh and that's why I created this forum category.
As for what can be done with minimum trouble:
- mspgcc can be compiled for MacOS-X, and the source code can
be downloaded from source forge;
- an interface for the boot loader (BSL) can also be built and used
on MacOS-X provided you gave a USB to serial interface.
- The parallel interface is used with Linux, so in case of a USB
to parallel interface, there shoud be some ways to use Texas parllel
device with MacOS-X.
Using a TI USB UIF interface is a bit tricky because the source code
of the UIF firmware is not open. However, some people managed to
get the full source code of the UIF from Texas Instruments under NDA
Beside this, there are other projects involving TinyOS, that are
apparently working on MacOS. But I didn't try this myself.
My intention by creating this sub-forum is to try to centralize information
spread over the internet.
It seems the tools are very Windows centric. Are there any tools people
have found for programming the MSP430 from a Mac?
I am willing to spend ime working on a programmer but would appreciate
If you could describe your project more accurately and try to report
what you already have, which pieces are missing in the puzzle, I am sure
this would open the way to a broader cooperation.
Thanks again for coming here. I am looking forward to seeing more
information shared here.
