The 2553 chips pre installed on the MSP430 Launchpad's delivered with the Air-Booster packs from Anaren WERE NOT preloaded with a sample program for the Air- Booster packs...just the usual Lanchpad Demo…
I'm compiled firmware for my AIR boosterpack, no problems at all. Did you copied all files from CD\Firmware? Especially "_FactoryDefault" and "src" dirs? Typical project import in CCS, skips these directories…
Hi I have put up a small guide on using CCS to compile and debug the projects...here
Interesting! How would you embed these chips on your own board? I assume you'd need something like an FTDI and write your own bootloader?
You're looking in wrong place, MSP-FET430UIF is USB composite class device providing one HID device and one COM port. Com port is used only for communication with HW UART on MSP430G2xxx MCU's, not for debugging or programming.
Check this manual: http://www.ti.com/general/docs/lit/getliterature.tsp?baseLiteratureNumber=slau278&fileType=pdf, pages from 142 to 146.
In my Windows XP (running in VM under ubuntu) it looks like this:
Do you have HID device with same VID&PID like your "MSP430 Application UART"?
If this can't help you, try to make own topic on TI's MSP forum.
Do not give up!....It is difficult to diagnose your problem as there are so many variables..there does not seem much left to look for other than issues with some 'other' hardware on your system...if it was me I would uninstall the bluetooth drivers and use a USB mouse next...there does not seem to be a definitive answer to this problem, and TI should look into this problem as you are not alone....
Ok, I tried disabling all COM ports (all the open and closed BT ports and a few for my brother's old phone) and unfortunately this hasn't appeared to help. The only device left on the COM list is the Launchpad as can be seen in the attached picture. I also tried disabling my Bluetooth RFCOMM to prevent it re-opening the BT ports but this had no effect on the outcome. The error seems to prevail in this circumstance...
Try the following:
1. Right-click “Command Prompt” in Accessories and choose “Run as Administrator”
2. Enter “set devmgr_show_nonpresent_devices=1″ – without the quotes obviously
3. Enter “start devmgmt.msc”
4. In the box that opens, select “Show hidden devices” in the ‘view’ menu.
Now if you expand the section on COM ports, all the COM ports that have ever
been created will be displayed, the non present ones being in grey. You can
uninstall away anything that you don’t want (right click, select uninstall).
It could possibly be my mouse, I use a Microsoft wireless Mobile Mouse 4000 with proprietary bluetooth adapter. I guess it could also be my bluetooth, as it has opened a number of BT ports in the COM port list. I am unaware how to disable these BT ports without removing all BT drivers on my laptop. I have tried diabling the BT function but it seems to make no difference to the number of open BT ports
The only difference I could find between your settings and mine, is that the location in the FET Device properties is set as 0000.001d.0000.001.003.000.000.000.000
