Description

Known issues when debugging the MSP430F5xx family There are possible debug scenarios where a code breakpoint being hit can corrupt the expected program execution flow. These are specifically: Single stepping over an instruction that sets the CPUOFF bit in the CPU Status Register (SR) (for example BIS #CPUOFF,SR). Single stepping while the DMA gets triggers to transfer data. Single stepping into an interrupt service routine (the return value on the stack might be corrupted due to debugger interaction). When single stepping over or running into a breakpoint that is set on an instruction that performs a 20-bit write back operation to memory the Program Counter (PC) might not point to the next instruction but to the address of the next instruction plus 2. Avoid setting breakpoints in one of the described scenarios. In some cases, it is possible to manually restore the CPU state to continue with a correct program execution flow (for example, manually set the PC to the next instruction, put the correct return address on the stack, etc.).

When single stepping over or running into a breakpoint that is set on an instruction that performs a 20-bit write back operation to memory the Program Counter (PC) might not point to the next instruction but to the address of the next instruction plus 2. Avoid setting breakpoints in one of the described scenarios. In some cases it is possible to manually restore the CPU state to continue with a correct program execution flow (for example, manually set the PC to the next instruction, put the correct return address on the stack, etc.) .

Description

Attach to running target The "Attach to running target" feature is not working 100% reliably, especially for Spy-BiWire capable devices. None Advanced Trigger of type Register does not work properly for MSP430X architecture The configuration of an Advanced Trigger of type Register [for example, to observe the Stack Pointer (SP) register value] does not show the expected behavior in the case when a device with the MSP430X architecture (for example, MSP430FG461x, MSP430F241x, and MSP430F261x) is the target of a debug session. None Integer values of C-type 'long' (32 bit) are displayed incorrectly in Watch window for MSP430X architecture This affects 32-bit values that are held in two CPU registers; for example, a value of 0x00123456 is stored in R14 and R15. The lower word of the 32-bit value is stored as R14 = 0x3456, and the higher word is stored as R15 = 0x0012. The C-Spy Watch window shows a value of 0x12003456. This is a problem with the Watch window onlythe program code produces the correct results. It is recommended not to change the dedicated 32-bit value via the Watch window, as this can cause unpredictable behavior. This limitation is only valid when a device with the MSP430X architecture is the target of a debug session. None
