Phyton has released a complete tool chain for the TI MSP430.

Phyton, Inc has released a complete software and hardware tool set for the popular Texas Instruments MSP430 low power 16-bit microcontroller family.

This development tools set includes the Phyton MCA-430 macro assembler, PDS-430 command set debugger/simulator and PICD-430 JTAG debugger. These tools are integrated with the Phyton Project-430 IDE, providing a complete development cycle, from editing source code all the way through to programming debugged code programmed into the target MSP430 microcontroller.

Phyton can also supply the optional MCC-430 C compiler from MicroCOSM, or the EW-430 Embedded Workbench from IAR, bundled with the PICD-430 debugger. Both compilers are fully supported by Phyton's IDE. The IDE also supports very popular TI MSP430 Flash Emulation tool as an alternative to PICD-430 debugger.

The PICD JTAG debugger communicate to a PC via a USB port. Compared to TI MSP-FET430, PICD-430 has more high-end features as complex breakpoints/triggers, real-time tracing (for selected MSP430 derivatives), and more.

You can choose any combination of Phyton tools that fits your needs and budget. MCC-430 C compiler costs $495 and PICD-430 JTAG debugger costs $395; all other tools can be downloaded from Phyton's web page at no additional charge.
