I have to use MSP430i2030 for a project and I tried burning code on it using MSP430G2553 launchpad. I tried burning a simple code on toggling the LED, however, the CCS complained that it could not find the chip, yet I could see the LED being toggled. But no matter what changes I make to the code, it keeps on toggling (even when i commented that part of the code). Below is the way in which I connected my chip to the launchpad.
Also, as per Texas Instruments, this chip cannot be used with the launchpad, however, I have gone through some examples where people are able to use the unsupported micro-controllers as well.
