EZ-FET lite

From Texas Instruments Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

The eZ-FET lite is a low cost USB-based on-board emulation solution for MSP430 microcontrollers. It allows direct interfacing to a PC for easy programming, debugging, and evaluation and provides a USB-to-UART bridge for serial connection to the target microcontroller.

The eZ-FET lite on-board emulation is supported by the MSP430 DLL and can be used with IAR Embedded Workbench™ for MSP430 Integrated Development Environment (IDE) or Code Composer Studio™ (CCS) IDE to write, download, and debug applications.

The debugger is unobtrusive, allowing the user to run an application at full speed with hardware breakpoints and single stepping available while consuming no extra hardware resources.

The following picture shows an example of the eZ-FET lite on-board emulation. The emulation components are placed within the red highlighted areas.
