Shaos let us know that his nedoCPU-32 boards and kits are available for purchase on his site. The nedoCPU-32 is a breakout board for PIC32 microcontrollers that come in through-hole packages. His board has a built in power supply, a quartz oscillator, and a passive protection circuit on the broken out pins. We covered the […]
PIC32 microcontrollers in DIP packages are in stock at microchipDirect. The prices range from $2.51 in the singles to $1.82 in high volumes. This compares well to 8, and 16bit PICs which also range around $2 in the same package. Via the forum. Thanks Shaos.
Shaos is making a breakout board for PIC32 microcontrollers in DIP through hole packages. He based his design on his previous project the nedoCPU-16, a breakout for the PIC16F870 uCs. There is a 3.3v power supply onboard along with all the bypass capacitors required for the PIC32 to function properly. As an added feature he […]
Here’s a pic of the new 32bit PIC32 microcontroller in a DIY friendly though-hole package. Shaos received a free sample from Microchip and shared this pic in the forum. Microchip is not alone, NXP is also releasing an 32bit ARM in hobbyist-friendly packaging.
While rummaging through the Microchip site, Octal stumbled across new PIC32 chips in 28 Pin through-hole packages. All the chips marked with 28 pins have a SPDIP version. Some are in production right now, although their SPDIP versions are not on sale yet. Via the forum.
RetroBSD is a UNIX port that runs on the PIC32 microcontroller: The system is targeted to a market of small embedded systems. Main features include: Small resource requirements: RetroBSD requires only 128 kbytes of RAM to be up and running user applications. Memory protection: Using hardware mechanisms, kernel memory is fully protected from the user […]
The CUI32 is a PIC32 USB development board. Markus updated the design to use as an Commodore sound chip emulator and SID music file player. Now that re-design has become the CUI32Stem, and it will soon be available at Seeed: SeeedStudio is currently producing a prototype of the board and if everything goes well, they […]
PICqueño32 is our knock-off the Arduino-compatible chipKIT Uno32. Earlier this summer Microchip and Digilent released a 32bit, PIC 32 development board. Yeah, it’s in the shape of an Arduino. What sets it apart from others is the open source compiler that works with the Arduino IDE and existing Arduino programs. We decided to make a […]
jpm successfully tested our stalled ENC424J600 ethernet board with a PIC32: I used Microchip stack at SPI speed 20MHz. Quicker about two times than ENC28J60.
A few days ago we asked about open source projects you’ve tailored to suit your own needs. Markus writes: I don’t know if it counts, but my story is this: There is this PIC32MX open hardware board named CUI32 for which I managed to get some SID (Commodore 64 sound chip) emulation code to compile […]
