Long time no post!
There have been some interesting news recently:
- The older mspgcc4 toolchain has been merged into the mspgcc project at sourceforge. Efforts have been geared towards supporting a greater variety of MCUs that include both the MSP430G2231 that came with the LaunchPad as well as the MSP430G2452 included with TI's Capactive Touch Sensor Booster Pack.
- Terence, a.k.a PentiumPC has just come up with a kernel extension that supports both programming/debugging and virtual serial communication!! This is great news for the LaunchPad community because an official VCP driver for OS X has been missing all this long.
It's kind of sad that companies think communities mean people need to hack their way through incomplete support and half-finished work. But I guess that's part of the $4.30 deal... Anyway, on to the subject:
I have posted a new version of the GCC toolchain for the MSP430 family. You can download it from:
Instructions on how to install and compile the "breathing led demo" are here:
