XDS110-ET Onboard Emulator
To keep development easy and cost effective, TI's LaunchPad evaluation kits integrate an onboard
emulator, which eliminates the need for expensive programmers. The MSP‑EXP432P401R has the
XDS110-ET emulator, which is a simple low-cost debugger that supports nearly all TI ARM device
derivatives.
Figure 5. XDS110-ET Emulator
The XDS110-ET hardware can be found in the schematics in Section 6 and in the MSP‑EXP432P401R
Hardware Design Files.
2.3.1
XDS110-ET Isolation Block
The isolation block is comprised of switch S101 and the accompanying jumpers next the switch.
The isolation block allows the user to connect or disconnect signals that cross from the XDS110-ET
domain into the MSP432P401R target domain. This crossing is shown by the dotted line across the
LaunchPad. No other signals cross this domain, so the XDS110-ET can be decoupled from the
MSP432P401R target side. This includes XDS110-ET Serial Wire Debug signals, application UART
signals, and 3.3-V and 5-V power.
Table 1 lists the signals that are controlled at the isolation block.

Reasons to open these connections:
• To remove any and all influence from the XDS110-ET emulator for high accuracy target power
measurements
• To control 3-V and 5-V power flow between the XDS110-ET and target domains
• To expose the target MCU pins for other use than onboard debugging and application UART
communication
• To expose the UART interface of the XDS110-ET so that it can be used for devices other than the
onboard MCU.

Application (or "Backchannel") UART
The XDS110-ET provides a "backchannel" UART-over-USB connection with the host, which can be very
useful during debugging and for easy communication with a PC. The provided UART supports hardware
flow control (RTS and CTS); although by default these signals are not connected to the target.

The backchannel UART allows communication with the USB host that is not part of the target application's
main functionality. This is very useful during development, and also provides a communication channel to
the PC host side. This can be used to create GUIs and other programs on the PC that communicate with
the LaunchPad.
The pathway of the backchannel UART is shown in Figure 7. The backchannel UART eUSCI_A0 is
independent of the UART on the 40-pin BoosterPack connector eUSCI_A2.
On the host side, a virtual COM port for the application backchannel UART is generated when the
LaunchPad enumerates on the host. You can use any PC application that interfaces with COM ports,
including terminal applications like Hyperterminal or Docklight, to open this port and communicate with the
target application. You need to identify the COM port for the backchannel. On Windows PCs, Device
Manager can assist.
Figure 7. Application Backchannel UART in Device Manager
The backchannel UART is the XDS110 Class Application/User UART port. In this case, Figure 7 shows
COM156, but this port can vary from one host PC to the next. After you identify the correct COM port,
configure it in your host application according to its documentation. You can then open the port and begin
communication to it from the host.
The XDS110-ET has a configurable baud rate; therefore, it is important that the PC application configures
the baud rate to be the same as what is configured on the eUSCI_A0 backchannel UART.

The XDS110-ET also supports hardware flow control, if desired. Hardware flow control (CTS and RTS
handshaking) allows the target MSP432P401R and the emulator to tell each other to wait before sending
more data. At low baud rates and with simple target applications, flow control may not be necessary.
Applications with higher baud rates and more interrupts to service have a higher likelihood that the will not
be able to read the eUSCI_A0 buffer in time, before the next byte arrives. If this happens, the eUSCI_A0
will report an overrun error.
2.3.3
Using an External Debugger Instead of the Onboard XDS110-ET
Many users have a specific debugger that they prefer to use, and may want to bypass the XDS110-ET to
program the target MCU. This is enabled by switch S101 and connector J102. Using an external debugger
is simple, and full JTAG access is provided through J102.
1. Switch S101 to the external debug position (to the right)
2. Plug any ARM debugger into J102
(a) J102 follows the ARM Cortex Debug Connector standard outlined here
(b) Note that J102 is not keyed, ensure proper orientation of the debug cable, pin 1 of J102 is on the
bottom right side
3. Plug USB power into the LaunchPad, or power it externally
(a) Ensure that the jumper across 3V3 is connected if using USB power
(b) External debuggers do not provide power, the VCC pin is a power sense pin
(c) More details on powering the LaunchPad can be found in Section 2.4
2.3.4
Using the XDS110-ET Emulator With a Different Target
The XDS110-ET emulator on the LaunchPad can interface to most ARM derivative devices, not just the
on-board MSP432P401R target device.
This is not a common use case, but for users who want this functionality, there is a way to enable it.
Connector J103 was added to expose all the necessary programming and power signals. J103 is a 50 mil
spaced 7-pin header. By default it is not populated, so the user will have to populate a connector or
directly solder in wires.
When using the XDS110-ET with a different target, the jumpers in the isolation block should be removed,
and switch S101 moved to the external debug position. This will disconnect the XDS110-ET from the
MSP432P401R target and enable debug of an external device. Because only the SWD signals are
exposed, the user needs to set the debugger settings to SWD (without SWO) in the IDE. See the IDE
specific MSP432 user's guides for more details on this setting.
To debug other external devices, there are many options in the ARM debugging ecosystem including the
XDS100v2/3 and XDS200 from Texas Instruments. There are many other options including IAR I-jet, Keil
ULINK, and Segger J-Link.
2.3.5
EnergyTrace+ Technology
EnergyTrace™ technology is an energy-based code analysis tool that measures and displays the
application's energy profile and helps to optimize it for ultra-low power consumption.
MSP432 devices with built-in EnergyTrace+[CPU State] (or in short EnergyTrace+) technology allow realtime monitoring of internal device states while user program code executes.
EnergyTrace+ technology is supported on the LaunchPad MSP432P401R device + XDS110-ET debugger.
EnergyTrace technology is available as part of TI's Code Composer Studio IDE. During application debug,
additional windows are available for EnergyTrace technology.
To enable EnergyTrace technology, go to:
• Window > Preferences > Code Composer Studio > Advanced Tools > EnergyTrace™ Technology
• Check the Enable Auto-Launch on target connect box

Starting a debug session will now open EnergyTrace technology windows. These windows show energy,
power, profile, and states to give the user a full view of the energy profile of their application.

This data allows the user to see exactly where and how energy is consumed in their application.
Optimizations for energy can be quickly made for the lowest power application possible.
On the LaunchPad, EnergyTrace technology measures the current that enters the target side of the
LaunchPad. This includes all BoosterPacks plugged in, and anything else connected to the 3V3 power
rail. For more information about powering the LaunchPad, see Section 2.4.

Power
The board was designed to accommodate various powering methods, including through the on-board
XDS110-ET and from an external source or BoosterPack.
Figure 10. MSP‑‑EXP432P401R Power Block Diagram
2.4.1
XDS110-ET USB Power
The most common power-supply scenario is from USB through the XDS110-ET debugger. This provides
5-V power from the USB and also regulates this power rail to 3.3 V for XDS110-ET operation and 3.3 V to
the target side of the LaunchPad. Power from the XDS110-ET is controlled by the isolation block 3V3
jumper, ensure this jumper is connected for power to be provided to the target MCU side.
Under normal operation, the LDO on the XDS110-ET can supply up to 500 mA of current to the target side
including any BoosterPacks plugged in. However, when debugging and using the EnergyTrace technology
tool, this current is limited to 75 mA total. Be aware of this current limitation when using EnergyTrace
technology.
2.4.2
BoosterPack and External Power Supply
Header J6 is present on the board to supply external power directly. It is important to comply with the
device voltage operation specifications when supplying external power. The MSP432P401R has an
operating range of 1.62 V to 3.7 V. More information can be found in the MSP432P401xx Mixed-Signal
Microcontroller data sheet .

Measure MSP432 Current Draw
To measure the current draw of the MSP432P401R, use the 3V3 jumper on the jumper isolation block.
The current measured includes the target device and any current drawn through the BoosterPack
headers.
To measure ultra-low power, follow these steps:
1. Remove the 3V3 jumper in the isolation block, and attach an ammeter across this jumper.
2. Consider the effect that the backchannel UART and any circuitry attached to the MSP432P401R may
have on current draw. Disconnect these at the isolation block if possible, or at least consider their
current sinking and sourcing capability in the final measurement.
3. Make sure there are no floating input I/Os. These cause unnecessary extra current draw. Every I/O
should either be driven out or, if it is an input, should be pulled or driven to a high or low level.
4. Begin target execution.
5. Measure the current. Keep in mind that if the current levels are fluctuating, it may be difficult to get a
stable measurement. It is easier to measure quiescent states.
For a better look at the power consumed in the application, use EnergyTrace+ Technology. EnergyTrace+
Technology allows the user to see energy consumed as the application progresses. More details about
EnergyTrace+ Technology can be found in Section 2.3.5.
2.6
Clocking
The MSP‑EXP432P401R provides external clocks in addition to the internal clocks in the device.
• Q1: 32-kHz crystal (LFXTCLK)
• Q2: 48-MHz crystal (HFXTCLK)
The 32-kHz crystal allows for lower LPM3 sleep currents, and higher precision clock source than the
default internal 32 kHz REFOCLK. Therefore, the presence of the crystal allows the full range of lowpower modes to be used.
The 48-MHz crystal allows the device to run at its maximum operating speed for MCLK and HSMCLK.
The MSP432P401R device has several internal clocks that can be sourced from many clock sources.
Most peripherals on the device can select which of the internal clocks to use to operate at the desired
speed.
The internal clocks in the device default to the configuration listed in Table 2.

BoosterPack Pinout
The MSP‑EXP432P401R LaunchPad adheres to the 40-pin LaunchPad pinout standard. A standard was
created to aid compatibility between LaunchPad and BoosterPack tools across the TI ecosystem.
The 40-pin standard is compatible with the 20-pin standard that is used by other LaunchPads like the
MSP‑EXP430FR4133. This allows some subset of functionality of 40-pin BoosterPacks to be used with
20-pin LaunchPads.
While most BoosterPacks are compliant with the standard, some are not. The MSP‑EXP432P401R
LaunchPad is compatible with all 20-pin and 40-pin BoosterPacks that are compliant with the standard. If
the reseller or owner of the BoosterPack does not explicitly indicate compatibility with the
MSP‑EXP432P401R LaunchPad, compare the schematic of the candidate BoosterPack with the
LaunchPad to ensure compatibility. Keep in mind that sometimes conflicts can be resolved by changing
the MSP432P401R device pin function configuration in software. More information about compatibility can
also be found at http://www.ti.com/launchpad.
Figure 11 shows the 40-pin pinout of the MSP‑EXP432P401R LaunchPad.
Note that software configuration of the pin functions plays a role in compatibility. The MSP‑EXP432P401R
LaunchPad side of the dashed line in Figure 11 shows all of the functions for which the MSP432P401R
device's pins can be configured. This can also be seen in the MSP432P401R data sheet. The
BoosterPack side of the dashed line shows the standard. The MSP432P401R function whose color
matches the BoosterPack function shows the specific software-configurable function by which the
MSP‑EXP432P401R LaunchPad adheres to the standard.

Out-of-Box Software Example
This section describes the functionality and structure of the out-of-box software that is preloaded on the
EVM. The source code can be found in the MSP‑EXP432P401R Software Examples download, or more
easily accessible through MSPWare (See 4.3).
The out-of-box software extends a basic blink LED example to allow users to control the blink rate and
color of an RGB LED on the MSP432 LaunchPad.
3.1.1
Operation
Upon powering up the out-of-box demo, the RGB LED2 blinks red at 1 Hz. Switch S1 can be tapped
repeatedly at a constant rate to set the blink frequency of LED2. Switch S2 cycles LED2 through four
different color settings: Red, Green, Blue, and random RGB color. Each color setting retains its own blink
frequency.
A PC GUI accompanies the out-of-box demo to allow user to set the color and blink rate of the RGB LED.
If not already, connect the LaunchPad using the included USB cable to a computer. The out-of-box GUI
can be opened from within CCS using the TI Resource Explorer: MSPWare > Development Tools >
MSP‑EXP432P401R > Examples > Out of Box Experience GUI. A copy can also be found in the

Running the Demo
In order to connect the CC3100BOOST to a wireless access point, start by modifying SSID_NAME and
PASSKEY in the #define section of main.c with your wireless access point's information. You may also
need to change SEC_TYPE depending on your access point's setting.
Next, using TI Cloud tools or offline IDEs, build and download the project to the MSP432 LaunchPad. If
not already, plug the CC3100BOOST BoosterPack onto the LaunchPad, and connect the LaunchPad to
your computer. The CC3100 should automatically try to connect to the access point with the provided
credentials. The LaunchPad outputs status messages through its Application/User UART COM port, which
can be viewed by opening it using terminal applications (see Section 2.3.2).
Once the CC3100 has established internet connection and successfully subscribed to the public MQTT
broker server, the LaunchPad RGB LED is ready to be controlled with Twitter. Any public tweets in the
following format will change the RGB LED color on all MSP‑EXP432P401R LaunchPad running this
demo:
RGB(red_value, green_value, blue_value) #MSP432LaunchPad
The color parameters can be integers ranging from 0 to 255.
Pressing the left push button S1 on the LaunchPad publishes a 32-bit unique ID from the LaunchPad to
the MQTT broker, which then gets tweeted by the twitter account, @MSPLaunchPad. You may then use
this 32-bit Unique ID in your tweet message to control the RGB LED on the specific
LaunchPad+CC3100BOOST combination tied to that unique ID:
<32-bit unique ID> RGB(red_value, green_value, blue_value) #MSP432LaunchPad

3.2.3
Overview of Backend Servers
Figure 14. Backend Block Diagram of CC3100BOOST MQTT-Twitter LED Control Demo
As shown in the above Figure 14, inputs from either the MSP432 LaunchPad or Twitter travel through a
couple of intermediary servers before reaching the output on the opposite end. Instead of interacting with
Twitter server directly through the more resource intensive HTTP, the MSP432 LaunchPad communicates
with the cloud solely through MQTT protocol. MQTT is a publish-subscribe messaging protocol designed
for lightweight M2M communications. Multiple clients sends message to one another through a server
known as a broker, and each client can publish messages to different topics and subscribe to multiple
topics. While a dedicated MQTT broker can be setup for an application, this demo uses one of the several
MQTT brokers that are freely available to the public, http://iot.eclipse.org/sandbox.html.
Every LaunchPad running the CC3100BOOST MQTT-Twitter LED Control demo subscribes to the MQTT
topic, "/msp/cc3100/demo". This is why any RGB data published to this topic will change the LED color on
all LaunchPads running this demo. However, each LaunchPad also subscribes to an "<uniqueID>" topic
that can be used to control LaunchPads individually.
A cloud server is also setup/maintained by the MSP Team using the IBM Bluemix cloud platform service.
This server runs a couple of Node-RED applications that interface with Twitter directly through HTTP.
After processing public tweets containing #MSP432LaunchPad, the Node-RED server also act as a MQTT
client, publishing color information to either the "/msp/cc3100/demo" or "<uniqueID>" topic, which then
gets received on subscribed LaunchPads. Conversely, unique id data published by the LaunchPads to the
"/msp/cc3100/demo/fromLP" topic gets received by the Node-RED server, which then tweets a time
stamped message on the Twitter account @MSPLaunchPad.
Check out IBM Bluemix to see how you can also build your own cloud application.
3.2.4
Developing With CC3100BOOST BoosterPack
A SimpleLink Wi-Fi CC3100 Software Development Kit (SDK) can be downloaded at
http://www.ti.com/tool/cc3100sdk. It contains drivers, many sample applications for Wi-Fi features and
internet, and documentation needed to use the CC3100 Internet-on-a-chip™ solution.
The CC3100BOOST MQTT-Twitter LED Control Demo was developed on CC3100SDK_1.0.0. Service
pack update may be required on the CC3100BOOST with newer SDK release. Refer to the CC3100
SimpleLink Wi-Fi and IoT Solution Getting Started Guide for more information.

BOOSTXL-K350QVG-S1 Graphics Library Example
This software is available in the MSP‑EXP432P401R Software Examples, or more easily accessible
through MSPWare (see Section 4.3).
The demo shows how to use the MSP Graphics Library http://www.ti.com/tool/msp-grlib or "grlib," in a
project with the Kentec display. This demo shows the user how to enable the touch screen, create
buttons, and use graphics primitives including colors and images.
The program begins by calibrating the touch screen. There is a routine that detects the four corner
coordinates to determine if an eligible rectangle boundary is formed. If the calibration was incorrect, a
message will display on the screen indicating the calibration failed. When successful, the calibration
provides a reference for all button presses throughout the rest of the program.
The next step is to select the mode of the program- display primitives or images. Each mode simply cycles
through without user interaction to show off features of the display. In the graphics primitives mode, the
following primitives are shown:
• Pixels
• Lines
• Circles
• Rectangles
• Text
The application is heavily commented to ensure it is very clear how to use the grlib APIs. The above
primitives are shown as well as the underlying concepts of grlib including background and foreground
colors, context, fonts, opacity, and more.
The images mode shows the drawing of a few different images both compressed and uncompressed.
Image compression can have a big impact to drawing speeds for simple images. To draw images with the
MSP Graphics Library, they must first be converted into the right file format. These files can be generated
by the Image Reformer tool that comes packaged with grlib. Launch this tool from the grlib folder or direct
from TI Resource Explorer.
• File Path: <grlib root>\utils\image-reformer\imagereformer.exe
• TI Resource Explorer > MSPWare > Libraries > Graphics Library > MSP430 Image Reformer
The Image Reformer tool allows you to import images and output into grlib specific files to add to your
grlib project. Image Reformer does not manipulate any images (such as color modifications, rotation, or
cropping), any image manipulation must be done before importing into the Image Reformer tool. More
information about MSP grlib and the Image Reformer tool can be found in the Design Considerations
when Using MSP430 Graphics Library application note.

to use the MSP Graphics Library http://www.ti.com/tool/msp-grlib or "grlib," in a project with the Sharp
96×96 display. The Sharp 96×96 display BoosterPack does not support touch or color, it is a simple
monochrome LCD. It is a great LCD for ultra-low power display applications and has a unique mirrored
pixel display.

on these pins. Changing to use SWD allows access through the dedicated debug pins only.
If even this cannot connect, reset the device to factory settings
– Click View → Target Configurations. CCS shows the target configuration.

– The debugger now connects to the device (which is still possible) but does not try to halt the CPU,
write to registers, or even download code (which would not be possible). The Debug view that is
spawned shows the CPU core but marks it as disconnected.

FAQ

Q: How do I use the LaunchPad and my Segger J-Link to debug the target externally? It won't connect to
the onboard connector.
A: The Segger J-Link is the only major ARM debugger that doesn't come with an adapter for the 10-pin
small pitch ARM connector. The adapter cable is found here, and can be purchased from Digi-Key here
Q: Why doesn't the back-channel UART on the MSP432 LaunchPad work with my serial terminal program
at speeds faster than 56000 baud?
A: Certain serial terminal programs such as HTerm or the CCS built-in terminal might not work with the
MSP432 LaunchPad at specific baud rates, resulting in the software not being able to open the virtual
COM port or in the baud rate being configured incorrectly. An issue with the LaunchPad emulator firmware
has been identified and will be fixed in the next release. Until the update is available, use Tera Term,
ClearConnex, or HyperTerminal instead, or reduce the baud rate to speeds of 38400 baud or lower.
Q: Problems plugging the MSP432 LaunchPad into a USB3.0 Port
A: It has been observed that when the MSP432 LaunchPad is connected to USB3.0 ports provided by a
certain combination of USB3.0 host controller hardware and associated device drivers that the IDE is
unable to establish a debug session with the LaunchPad, resulting in an error message like "CS_DAP_0:
Error connecting to the target: (Error -260 @ 0x0) An attempt to connect to the XDS110 failed." in the
case of Code Composer Studio. In this case the CCS-provided low-level command line utility ‘xdsdfu' will
also not be able to establish a connection with the LaunchPad.
Specifically, this issue was observed on PCs running Windows 7 that show the "Renesas Electronics USB
3.0 Host Controller" and the associated "Renesas Electronics USB 3.0 Root Hub" in the device manager.
After updating the associated Windows USB drivers to more recent versions obtained from the hardware
vendor the issue went away. There might be other USB3.0 hardware and device driver combinations that
will lead to the same issue. If you think you might be affected try contacting your PC vendor or try locating
and installing more recent versions of the USB3.0 device drivers. Alternatively, connect the LaunchPad to
an USB2.0 port on your PC if available.
Q: I can't get the backchannel UART to connect. What's wrong?
A:
•
•
•
Check the following:
Do the baud rate in the host's terminal application and the eUSCI settings match?
Are the appropriate jumpers in place, on the isolation jumper block?
Probe on RXD and send data from the host. If you don't see data, it might be a problem on the host
side.
• Probe on TXD while sending data from the MSP432. If you don't see data, it might be a configuration
problem with the eUSCI module.
• Consider the use of the hardware flow control lines (especially for higher baud rates).

to support this warranty. Except where mandated by applicable law, testing of all parameters of each component is not necessarily
performed.
TI assumes no liability for applications assistance or the design of Buyers’ products. Buyers are responsible for their products and
applications using TI components. To minimize the risks associated with Buyers’ products and applications, Buyers should provide
adequate design and operating safeguards.
TI does not warrant or represent that any license, either express or implied, is granted under any patent right, copyright, mask work right, or
other intellectual property right relating to any combination, machine, or process in which TI components or services are used. Information
published by TI regarding third-party products or services does not constitute a license to use such products or services or a warranty or
endorsement thereof. Use of such information may require a license from a third party under the patents or other intellectual property of the
third party, or a license from TI under the patents or other intellectual property of TI.
Reproduction of significant portions of TI information in TI data books or data sheets is permissible only if reproduction is without alteration
and is accompanied by all associated warranties, conditions, limitations, and notices. TI is not responsible or liable for such altered
documentation. Information of third parties may be subject to additional restrictions.
Resale of TI components or services with statements different from or beyond the parameters stated by TI for that component or service
voids all express and any implied warranties for the associated TI component or service and is an unfair and deceptive business practice.
TI is not responsible or liable for any such statements.
Buyer acknowledges and agrees that it is solely responsible for compliance with all legal, regulatory and safety-related requirements
concerning its products, and any use of TI components in its applications, notwithstanding any applications-related information or support
that may be provided by TI. Buyer represents and agrees that it has all the necessary expertise to create and implement safeguards which
anticipate dangerous consequences of failures, monitor failures and their consequences, lessen the likelihood of failures that might cause
harm and take appropriate remedial actions. Buyer will fully indemnify TI and its representatives against any damages arising out of the use
of any TI components in safety-critical applications.
In some cases, TI components may be promoted specifically to facilitate safety-related applications. With such components, TI’s goal is to
help enable customers to design and create their own end-product solutions that meet applicable functional safety standards and
requirements. Nonetheless, such components are subject to these terms.
No TI components are authorized for use in FDA Class III (or similar life-critical medical equipment) unless authorized officers of the parties
have executed a special agreement specifically governing such use.
Only those TI components which TI has specifically designated as military grade or “enhanced plastic” are designed and intended for use in
military/aerospace applications or environments. Buyer acknowledges and agrees that any military or aerospace use of TI components
which have not been so designated is solely at the Buyer's risk, and that Buyer is solely responsible for compliance with all legal and
regulatory requirements in connection with such use.
TI has specifically designated certain components as meeting ISO/TS16949 requirements, mainly for automotive use. In any case of use of
non-designated products, TI will not be responsible for any failure to meet ISO/TS16949.
