When Ivan changed his TV provider they required the use of a SetTopBox(STB) as a receiver. Since it had HDMI output, he decided to use an old Philips 230C1 monitor as a TV screen. The monitor, however, was not controlled by the STB and had to be switched on and off manually (not via the […]
Pinguino design team released the design for the Pinguino32 PIC32 development board using their Pinguino bootloader. It supports PIC32MX250F128, and PIC32MX220F032B microcontrollers. The design is open source, and made with KICAD software. Download it from their Google code area.
Pinguino, the open source IDE for PIC-based Arduino compatible boards, just released version X.3. Software is still in beta testing mode, so if you run into a bug be sure to contact the developers about it. PinguinoX.3 is now available in the download area for both Linux and Windows computer. With the help of all […]
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 we did for 8 the […]
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 C. It uses SDCC as […]
