Microchip® PIC32MX320F128
Application development using an environment based on the original Arduino™ IDE modified to support PIC32 that also still supports the original Arduino line. Leverages existing code examples, tutorials and resources.

To download the IDE, please visit:
  • Microchip PIC32MX320F128 processor
    • 80 Mhz 32-bit MIPS
    • 128K Flash, 32K RAM
  • Leverage Arduino™ code examples, reference materials and other resources
  • Can also be programmed using Microchip's MPLAB (along with a PICkit 3 or 6-pin header)
  • Arduino Uno form factor
  • 42 available I/O
  • User LED
The chipKIT™ Uno32™ combines same form factor with the popular Arduino open source hardware prototyping platform with the performance of the Microchip PIC32 microcontroller. It features a USB serial port interface for connection to the modified IDE based in Arduino and can be powered via USB or an external power supply.

The Uno32 board takes advantage of the powerful PIC32MX320F128 microcontroller. This microcontroller features a 32-bit MIPS processor core running at 80Mhz, 128K of flash program memory and 16K of SRAM data memory.

The Uno32 can be programmed using of a modified version of the Arduino IDE, available as a FREE download. In addition to operation within the modified Arduino development environment, the Uno32 is fully compatible with the advanced Microchip MPLAB development environment and the PICKit3 in-system programmer/debugger.

Amazing hardware for the money, why bother with AVR?
I only found out about ChipKIT products when I accidentally exceeded the RAM of Arduino AVR Mega's trying to print out a 384x384 pixel monochrome bitmap to a thermal printer. Wow, the uC32 is amazing! More RAM, more inputs, and 10x more clock speed! It isn't quite as easy to "find working code" as Arduinos, but there's fantastic and enthusiastic support on the chipKIT forums. I'll never buy an AVR Arduino again! BTW, you can use Arduino shields with this! For my case, I used NKC's arduino proto shield (which uses the outer rows of the connectors) and then for UART2, I simply plugged jumper wires into the uC32's inboard pins underneath the NKC proto shield. Sounds kludgy, but works very well. Oh, and the ChipKIT board gets hot if you feed it 9V or more, so supply it with 5 to 7 volts and then use alternate supply voltages for anything else. If you're running I2C and a 5V source, parallel it off to feed both the uC32 and the I2C directly, as the uC32's voltage regulator will drop 0.7V and I2C might not work right. If you google for "Build report ChipKIT TPS test" you will find an example of my project.
