I have an msp430g2553 in its launch pad. I have tried using a baud rate of 19200 with the UART and I get gibberish. From what I have found, something with the launchpad or drivers limits the UART baud rate to 9600. From the datasheets I know that the chip can transmit up to 1MBd, but I can't find anything that tells me how to utilize any transfer rate higher than 9600. What hardware or software do I need to get the msp430 to talk to my computer faster?
P.S. I am using the msp430 to send ADC samples to a C# program on my computer, and that works perfectly at 9600, but I can't make it any faster.
EDIT: "The MSP itself can go as high as 1MBd. It's the USB/ser converter inside the LaunchPad (the so-called Applicaiton UART) that is limited to 9600Bd - its high-speed part is required for the JTAG (debugging) functionality." - source. So how can I set up a USB/Serial connection in place of the launchpad?
