Python MSP430 Tools

Package Documentation

The python-msp430-tools are a collection of tools related to the MSP430 embedded processor.

Python 2.6 or newer (2.x series) is required for most modules. The python package "msp430" can be installed with "python setup.py install". These modules can be used as standalone applications or as library for other programs.

Download tools

Command line tools, e.g. python -m msp430.gdb.target. They can up and download memory of MSP430 targets.

  • msp430.jtag.target JTAG interface
  • msp430.bsl.target F1x, F2x, F4x BSL
  • msp430.bsl5.uart F5x, F6x BSL (non-USB devices)
  • msp430.bsl5.hid F5x, F6x BSL (USB devices)
  • msp430.gdb.target Using a GDB proxy (TCP/IP connection).

Other tools

  • msp430.memory.convert Convert between hex file formats
  • msp430.memory.dco Measure or calibrate the DCO clock
  • msp430.memory.compare Compare two hex files
  • msp430.memory.hexdump Show contents of hex files
  • msp430.memory.generate Create hex files with a defined pattern. Can be used for testing or to create underlays for other binaries (e.g. to fill unused memory with "NOPs" or "JMP $")
  • msp430.memory.downloader Small program, suitable for file associations, so that double clicking an ELF or a43 file can be used to download via JTAG.
  • msp430.asm.as, msp430.asm.ld, msp430.asm.cpp: An assembler, linker and preprocessor for MSP430(X)
  • msp430.asm.disassemble

Description of Python library

msp430
Root package for the Python modules related to the MSP430.
msp430.asm
A simple assembler and linker, also a disassembler, supporting MSP430(X).
msp430.bsl
Support for the boot strap loader. msp430.bsl.target is the main package for the downloader and contains subclassed modules for target specific BSL hardware.
msp430.bsl5
Support for the boot strap loader of F5xx/F6xx devices. msp430.bsl5.hid is the main module for the downloader for F5xx USB devices and msp430.bsl5.uart for all others.
msp430.jtag
JTAG tools using the MSP430[mspgcc] library. msp430.jtag.target is the main module for the downloader.
msp430.gdb
Communicate with a GDB server/proxy. msp430.gdb.target is the main module for the downloader.
msp430.memory
Memory implementation, used to store an memory image used to download to the MSP430. File format handlers are here too. Interesting submodules are: - convert - compare - hexdump - generate
msp430.shell.commands
Shell commands, useful for makefiles etc.
msp430.shell.watch
Watch a file for changes and execute a command in that case.
msp430.listing
Parser for listing files.
msp430.legacy
Support code for older tools.
