I'll shortly be working on a project which will use Node Red on a Raspberry pi 3B, part of this project will involve using the pi to program (firmware upload) a populated PCB under test. The Micro Controller in this case is one from the Texas Instruments MSP430 family.
So this post is really a place for anyone who has relevant info to add (not expecting much of that) and for me to share what I find.
The plan is for me to use mspdebug ( MSPDebug ) once I figure out how to get everything I need correctly built for the pi.
I'll post more info as I have it.
