Funny thing is, I wouldn't be surprised if there's a TUSB3410
(Serial-to-USB Converter) on the emulation portion to do USB
conversion for the MSP430.

I bet J3 connects the 'translated' USB signals from the TUSB3410(or
whatever device is on there) to the MSP device.

Maybe someone else has a better idea? I'm making wild speculations;
they're still working on releasing a schematic and I'm only marginally
familiar with the MSP430.  There'll be a ton more information in the
coming weeks.
