Another chipKIT 32-bit Arduino-compatible board and Wifi shield to give away this week. Leave a comment on this post with a project idea, and these boards could be yours on Thursday.
The chipKIT uC32 is based on the popular Arduino open-source hardware prototyping platform and adds the performance of the Microchip PIC32 microcontroller.
The uC32 is the same form factor as the Arduino Uno board and is compatible with Arduino shields. It features a USB serial port interface for connection to the IDE and can be powered via USB or an external power supply.
The chipKITWiFi Shield is an interface board designed for use with Digilent’s chipKIT line of microcontroller boards. The WiFi Shield makes use of the Microchip MRF24WB0MA WiFi module and provides chipKIT microcontroller boards the ability to connect to and communicate via IEEE 802.11 compatible wireless networks.
