Microchip and Digilent handed over a chipKIT WF 32, chipKIt Motor shield, chipKIT DP 32, and chipKit Cmod to give away this week. Leave a comment on this post with a project idea, and one of these boards could be yours on Friday.
The chipKIT WF32 is based on the popular Arduino™ open-source hardware prototyping platform and adds the performance of the Microchip PIC32 microcontroller.
The WF32 is the first board from Digilent to have a WiFi MRF24 and SD card on the board both with dedicated signals.
The chipKIT™ Motor Shield is an expansion board for use with the chipKIT Uno32 and chipKIT uC32. It provides additional circuitry and connectors for the Uno32 and uC32 to drive various motors types.
The chipKIT Motor Shield is designed to drive DC motors, servo motors, and stepper motors.
The chipKIT DP32 is a chipKIT/MPIDE compatible prototyping and project development board from Digilent. It combines the power of the Microchip® PIC32MX250F128B with a wire wrap prototyping area, provision for an EEPROM non-volatile memory, and analog temperature sensor, a potentiometer, buttons and LEDs in a single board. The mounting hole footprint on the board is designed to fit in the Hammond 1591XXSSBK project box.
The chipKIT Cmod is a chipKIT/MPIDE compatible board from Digilent. It combines a Microchip® PIC32MX150F128D microcontroller with a convenient 600-mil, 40-pin DIP package and two Digilent Pmod connectors. Digilent’s Cmod boards are ideally suited for breadboards or other prototype circuit designs where the use of small surface mount packages is impractical.
