This is a cool JTAG programming guy for the MSP430 microcontrollers from Texas Instruments.It is based on the Olimex MSP430 JTAG version that can be found at :

You can also use “MSPFET” programming utility that can be found at :


  • Program all MSP430Fxxx flash microcontrollers (note: parallel port JTAG doesn’t support Spy-Bi-Wire devices because timing from the parallel port can’t meet programming specs)
  • Compatible with IAR Kickstart software for programming, real time emulation, debugging, step by step program execution, breakpoints, memory dump etc everything all high priced emulators do
  • With IAR Kickstart you can write in assembler unlimited code size and to write in C with 2K limit for all MSP430 microcontrollers
  • Works with free GCC C compiler and Insight MSP430 toolchain and debugger
