Arduino dev boards and software

16 July 2014 Computer/Embedded Technology

Microchip recently expanded its Arduino compatible chipKIT ecosystem with two new development tools from Digilent and an embedded cloud software framework.

Digilent’s chipKIT WF32 board minimises the need for users to purchase additional hardware or shields, by integrating Microchip’s 32-bit PIC32MX695F512L MCU with full speed USB 2.0 host/device/OTG, its agency-certified MRF24WG0MA Wi-Fi module and an energy saving switch-mode power supply that employs Microchip’s MCP16301 DC-DC converter, in addition to a microSD card.

Digilent’s chipKIT Motor Control Shield enables the development of applications using a wide variety of motor types, including servos, steppers and DCs, while allowing users to take advantage of the extra I/O pins found on many of the chipKIT development boards. This additional I/O provides added connectivity and more features than traditional, lower pin-count Arduino shields.

On the software side, an embedded cloud software framework enables designers to easily create Internet of Things (IoT) applications with the chipKIT WF32. Additionally, Digilent facilitates the rapid development of wireless HTTP server applications via its comprehensive sample application that supports static pages loaded from the chipKIT WF32’s microSD card, as well as dynamically generated Web pages.

As with all chipKIT base boards, the WF32 can be connected to Microchip’s PICkit 3 programmer/debugger, allowing users to seamlessly move into Microchip’s professional MPLAB X IDE and XC32 C and C++ compilers.
