3. Installation

WiSense team has tested MSP430 toolchain on the following environments:

  • Ubuntu Linux using open source mspgcc. Mspgcc is covered by GPLv2 licensing.
  • Windows using Code Composer Studio (CCS). CCS has a commercial license. A limited period free trial version can also be installed.

Although port of mspgcc is available for Windows, we have not investigated this yet. MAC users have the option of using Ubuntu Linux on a bootable USB or run the same on a virtual machine. In future, we may test and support the toolchain natively on MAC iOS.
