XMS432 Support

From Texas Instruments Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Thank you for evaluating the MSP432P401R device. We are currently in the process of updating the MSP432P401x ecosystem to better align with our production-ready MSP432P401R Revision C device. You may have reached this site because you are evaluating either the pre-production XMS432P401R (Revisions B, C) or the production-ready MSP432P401R Revision C. We request you to read this wiki page to understand the correct pairing of IDE revisions and software that is suited to your specific device.

Device Revision Information

There are two useful documents that support migration from Revision B to Revision C

  1. Moving From Evaluation to Production With SimpleLink™ MSP432P401x Microcontrollers[1]
  2. MSP432P401R Device Erratasheet [2]

Please read through these documents to understand and incorporate changes when moving from Revision B to Revision C. Review the marking on your device carefully to ascertain the silicon revision. Package marking details can be found in the Device Erratasheet

MSP432P401x devices can be evaluated using one of the following methods:

  1. XMS/MSP432P401R with MSP-TS432PZ100 Target Development Board
  2. MSP-EXP432P401R LaunchPad
  3. XMS/MSP432P401R with Custom EVM

TI recommends that you update all hardware and software be updated to latest Revision C devices. Support for MSP432P401R on CCS cloud (dev.ti.com) and via MSP432Ware have been updated to match Revision C devices. Pre-production Revision C samples can be ordered online and an updated LaunchPad using XMS Revision C silicon is also available online. Additional details on migrating software from Revision B to Revision C is provided in the following application report

However if you would prefer to use pre-production XMS432P401R Revision B silicon, you may continue to do so until June 2017.

Important Note: Prior to updating your IDE (CCS, IAR or KEIL) and other software support, please ensure your silicon revision is known (B Vs. C):

  • For Revision B devices DO NOT UPDATE your MSPWare installation past the version specified in the Software Compatibility table.
  • For Revision C devices (XMS or MSP), UPDATE your IDE and MSPWare installations to the latest versions.

Refer to the tables below for minimum compatibility requirements between device revision and IDE/software versions, to avoid running into compatibility issues when migrating between Revision B and Revision C devices.
