I am making a small project using msp430f5438 micro-controller and a L.C.D interface. But I am little confused how to burn the micro-controller as I am planning to buy a msp430f5438 experiment board but that is too costly for me. If anybody can assist me how to burn my 100 pin msp430f5438. And I am little confused about the experiment board that do it has any pins for interfacing such things or it is just a burner circuit. Please help me

Reset button

User joystick

PCB: FR-4, 1.5 mm (0,062"), solder mask, silkscreen component print

Dimensions: 100x 98mm ( 3.94x 3.85")


BOARD USE REQUIREMENTS
Cables:

The cable you will need depends on the programmer/debugger you use. If

you use MSP430-JTAG, you will need LPT cable, if you use MSP430-JTAG-TINY or
MSP-JTAG-ISO, you will need 1.8m A-B USB cable, if you use MSP430-JTAG-RF,
you can connect it to the USB port of your computer, or via USB cable type A –
female.
Hardware:
Programmer/Debugger – one of our Programmers – MSP430-JTAG,

MSP430-JTAG-TINY
, MSP430-JTAG-ISO, or MSP430-JTAG-RF.
Software:
MSP430 KickStart software.


It looks like you get a lot for $56.00 https://www.digikey.com/product-search/en?mpart=MSP430-5438STK&vendor=1188
But you need the $75.40 programmer and software.
