Meet the Pinguino!

Wednesday, October 5th, 2011

MAKE posted an interview with the developers of the Pinguino Arduino-like platform for Microchip's PIC18 and PIC32 microcontrollers: We wouldn’t try to claim that the Pinguino is a “100% Arduino compatible board” as Microchip said for the chipKIT. Our goal is to add functionality to the original Arduino board as...

Pinguino: a PIC Arduino

Monday, April 12th, 2010

Pinguino is an Arduino-like board based on PIC microcontroller. The hardware is based on a PIC 18F2550, which has an integrated USB module. This is the same chip we used in the USB IR Toy. The IDE is built with Python. An integrated preprocessor translates Arduino specific instructions directly to...
