Microchip Technology Inc., a leading provider of microcontroller, analog and Flash-IP solutions, and Digilent, Inc. today announced expanded capabilities for the 32-bit PIC32 microcontroller-based chipKIT™ Development Platform for the Arduino™ community. First, the companies unveiled two shields for the chipKIT platform—the chipKIT Basic I/O and Network Shields. Secondly, new online support resources for the community are now available, including software library support for Ethernet, CAN and USB, as well as an online chipKIT forum (http://www.microchip.com/get/TGRC) and wiki (http://www.microchip.com/get/6ST7). The shields and online support resources enable users to take advantage of the high-performance, 32-bit PIC® microcontroller-based chipKIT development platform to add more features and functionality to their projects, even if they are not engineers.
We couldn’t find anything about (open source) driver or IDE support. Anyone know about this?
