MSP430 JTAG Interface Tool (Assembled)

Part #: JT-E100A

Price: $97.00




JT-E100A is a fully-assembled and tested, JTAG Interface Tool for the Texas Instruments MSP430 family of ultra-low power Flash Memory Microcontrollers. It is functionally equivalent to Texas Instruments MSP-FET430 FET Tool, with added designed-in features and modes of operation useful to the Hardware/Firmware development engineer. JT-E100A is compatible with Texas Instruments MSP430 Target Socket Modules (TSM) equipped with a 14-pin (IDC-type) JTAG interface connector. It will also work with SoftBaugh, Olimex or other evaluation boards equipped with a 14-pin (IDC-type) connector or standard 0.1” header, that has the same pin-out connections as the MSP-FET430 FET Tool. EMBEDDEDkits, JTAG Interface Cable FFC-8 can be used with SoftBaugh evaluation systems equipped with an 8-pin, 1-mm (FFC/FPC-type) connector.

JT-E100A is a powerful tool that, when combined with IAR Kickstart (available free) "C" Compiler and Assembler with Texas Instruments MSP430 Tool Software, or other compatible third-party emulation software, can be used as a development platform for MSP430F-based products/systems. When connected to a host PC, it can be used to program or erase the Target Board MSP430 Microcontroller flash memory. It can also be used as an inexpensive production tool to program MSP430F-based end-products.
